Tinder could soon be coming to a computer near you.

The company is aiming to make it a lot easier for some users to find their next match at work or at school.

Tinder announced on its official blog that it is experimenting with a desktop version of the service.

The company says it wants to give users even wider access. So, if users are say stuck in a place where they can’t use their phones or they're going over on data, they can just hop online.

"Tinder Online" is reportedly a simplified model of the current app’s features, but the company notes it’s a bit more enjoyable to use for messaging.

The company says it’s currently testing out Tinder Online in a number of countries including Argentina, Italy and Sweden.

A spokesperson for Tinder said in an email that the possibility of a U.S. rollout of Tinder Online will be based on the response from the current international tests.
