If you’re a new Bumble user, you probably have a lot of questions about how the app works, how to set up your profile, how to find matches, etc.
One of the most common questions we get is: how do you know when you get a game in Bumble?
In this article, I will answer this question as well as provide general information on how to get started with Bumble and make the most of your Bumble experience.
Starting at Bumble
You can download the Bumble app from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store and install it. Previously, you had to have a Facebook profile to register a Bumble account, but that has changed and now you can create an account with your phone number.
If you link your Bumble account to your Facebook profile, it will automatically import your age and location from Facebook, and you can also take photos from your Facebook account. If you are creating an account with a single phone number, you will need to manually add this information yourself.
Your next step is to create a biography for yourself and add images. His biography is limited to 300 characters (approximately 50 or 60 words), so space is limited.
Plus, it only has six images, so you want them to count. Bumble will give you the opportunity to add a lot of information about yourself, including your height, level of exercise, level of education you have, if you drink or smoke, if you have companion pets, if you have (or want) children, what you are looking for in the site and more. You can also enter your hometown, your current residence, and you can link your Spotify and Instagram accounts to provide potential matches even more information about you.
Once your profile is set up, using Bumble is easy. Just open the app and start swiping left or right over the people who present themselves to you. If you like someone you see in Bumble, swipe right to match. If you don’t like what you see, swipe left. If you make a mistake, stop immediately.
Bumble allows you to cancel the previous scan if you shake your phone. Unlike Tinder, which only offers this as a paid option, Bumble lets you do it for free, but you only get three kicks every three hours, so be careful. (You can also buy more backtracks if you buy the premium service level.)
How to know when you get a match in Bumble
It’s actually pretty simple to know that you have a match in Bumble – the app will send you a notification on your phone.
If you miss the notification, when you access the Bumble app, tap on the chat notification (it looks like a little text box) in the upper right corner, and your match queue will appear will show. All new games will be published there. If you are a woman, you can enter the chat directly; If you are a man, you will first have to wait for the woman to send you a message.
If you end up having connections in your queue but the conversation doesn’t start within 24 hours, the connection will disappear. Both men and women can extend a 24-hour game, although you only get one free extension per day. (Premium level users get unlimited matches).
Bumble is a great app, but it can be a bit confusing for new users to get started. If you’re concerned about mismatches, make sure to keep an eye out for Bumble notifications as the app will always notify you when you get a new match.
