Bumble Boost: Everything You Need to Know

We get it: you’re busy. There aren’t enough hours in the day, and sometimes 24 hours isn’t enough time to make the first move. That’s why we’ve created Bumble Boost, a subscription feature that enhances your Bumble experience and buys more time. If you’re looking for Bumble premium, read more about its features here.

Rematch and Give it Another Try

Get an Extra 24 Hours

Bumble Boost lets you extend matches by 24 hours. Give yourself more time to craft the perfect first message. Pro-tip: when you first match with someone, immediately extend it to give yourself a complete 48 hours to respond! Just seeing that larger number can help take any pressure off.

Backtrack on Left Swipes

Had a second thought about that last profile or accidentally swiped left? Don’t sweat it—Bumble Boost lets you Backtrack to reconsider your latest left swipe. Backtrack as many times as you need!

Make as Many Connections as You’d Like

There’s no cap on the number of people that you can swipe on with Bumble Boost, so there’s no need to worry about hitting a limit while you’re thoughtfully swiping.

Get Your Profile Seen by More Daters 

Bumble Boost includes one Spotlight a week. Once Spotlight is activated, your profile will be sent to the top of other daters’ stacks (without anyone knowing!) for 30 minutes, making you viewable to more people instantly. 

Catch Their Attention 

Stand out to daters that catch your eye by SuperSwiping on their profile (Boost includes five SuperSwipes a week). Once they come across your profile, that person will be able to see that you SuperSwiped on them and are interested in getting to know them better.
