Tinder just launched 'Places' so you can find love literally anywhere

Imagine Pokemon Go but where the pay off for leaving your couch may be much, much better than spotting a fake cartoon in the wild.

Tinder is getting into the GPS game with a new feature called "Places".

Imagine Google Maps but the destination is your heart (or your pleasure centres).

Whether you enjoy a specific gym, a certain bar or hell, even the biscuit aisle of your local IGA, you can now send out beacons for babes.

It's been designed to help you discover new mates who may hang out where you hang out (except private venues like the bathroom, banks, the doctor's office and your workplace etc).

This latest feature is, for now, only being tested in Sydney, Brisbane and Santiago, Chile.

According to the Tinder Gods, by creating this option, of which users can opt in or out of, "You also have a genuine icebreaker and your first-date spot. Boom," a spokesperson said while dropping mic.

Here's how it works:

Tap the pin next to the familiar flame at the top of your Discovery screen to access Places.

You can opt in by tapping "Turn Places On."

Then swipe on potential matches who have also visited the same cool spots.

Go forth and enjoy Pokemon Go where the pay off for leaving your couch may be much, much better than spotting a fake cartoon in the wild.
