  2. Bring back the ethnicity filter

    As the title says, BRING BACK THE ETHNICITY FILTER! Just because a subset of users don’t want it doesn’t mean to erase it. As many have stated before, som individuals live in area where one group is more predominant compared to others, thus making it limited for those individuals who are more comfortable closer personal preference. It isn’t limiting or racist for an user experience to the LGBTQ+ community to seek the comfort of their own kin. Having the ethnicity filter doesn’t mandate the user to use it, but gives this options just like there are filters for position, body…

  6. Bring back Ethnicity filter

    I’m paying money this for searching ethnicity.
    This is not racial problem at all.
    This is “preference”
    I’d like to find what I want to look.

    Could you understand the difference?

    Be able to click a button for when you’re at work/school . Currently you have to wait a little while to change you’re profile picture.

  8. Ethnicity filters for all!

    We shouldn’t have to pay for XTRA to do this. I live in an area where it’s 98% white cis males. Personally I prefer black guys and should not be subjected to the XTRA fee to be able to connect with other ethnicities. To have to pay for that filter just seems so rigid and out dated. Is 2019 you shouldn’t be having an ethnicity filter as a privilege it’s crazy! Take away this privilege and let all users have access to this filter and let us reach out to each other and connect, don’t be that Donald Trump wall…

  9. Ethnicity choice

    There is no reason to have removed the ethnicity filter this is real racism please return it everyone has a preference or a choice in what ethnicity they choose to be with the fact that there is a choice and different ethnicities are listed is fine as long as they’re there they’re included there’s no reason to delegate what choice we have to look at please return it

  11. Filter out specific gender types such as transgender from guys Nearby

    Would be nice to filter out specific gender types such as transgender. I do not want to see transgenders to show up in the nearby men’s list. I am a subscriber.

  12. Race

  13. Set notification tone

    It would be great to set the tone for notifications so that I can be a bit more discreet in some areas.

  16. Restore muting feature for in-app sounds (not just notifications).

    This was previously under "Notifications" > "Sounds." Not sure why this was removed, but can you imagine having these sounds play on a quiet bus? Every other app--game, dating, etc.--has a muting feature. Grindr--particularly for the sake of discretion--needs it back!

  18. Color theme change

    It would be great to have a chat background color that looks like your standard iOS or Android messaging window. I’d like to sneak into Grindr without attracting too much attention from snooping peeps around me 😉

  19. [Android] Ability to disable sounds for incoming/sent messages while in chats

    We would like to be able to fully remove sounds in the app while chatting. Being able to disable sounds for incoming chat threads or those of messages sent will allow us to be a full private mode if in public places.
