How To Get Facebook Dating On Android

Facebook Dating is a feature within Facebook’s main app rather than a separate app download. As an Android user, you won’t have to download anything else, you can use it from your existing Facebook app. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the steps to get Facebook Dating on your Android device.

Step 1: Update Your Facebook App

Make sure that your Facebook app is updated to the latest version. Facebook Dating is only available on the new version. To update, navigate to the Google Play Store, search for ‘Facebook’ in the search bar, and tap ‘Update’ if available. If your app is already updated, you’ll see an option saying ‘Open’ instead.

Step 2: Accessing Facebook Dating

Open the Facebook app on your smartphone and tap on the menu icon at the top right-hand corner, and scroll down until you find the ‘Dating’ option. If you don’t see it immediately, you may find it under the ‘See More’ option.

Step 3: Setting Up Your Profile

Once you tap on ‘Dating’, you’ll be asked to set up a profile. Follow the prompts, provide the required information and personalize your profile to your liking. Make sure your profile represents you well, as it will be key in finding potential matches.

Step 4: Start Exploring

Now that your profile is set up, you can start exploring. Your suggested matches will be based on your preferences, interests, and other things you do on Facebook. You can also choose to match with people who attend the same Facebook events or are part of the same Facebook groups.

Troubleshooting: I Can’t Find the Dating Option

If you can’t find the Dating option in your Facebook app, there could be a couple of reasons:

  1. Facebook Dating may not be available in your country.
  2. Your Facebook app may not be updated to the version that supports Facebook Dating.

In any of these cases, updating your app or waiting for the feature to launch in your country are the only solutions.


Facebook Dating, in essence, is a space within Facebook that makes it easier to meet and start new conversations with people who share your interests. We hope this guide has been helpful in setting up Facebook Dating on your Android device. Now you’re all set to explore the world of online dating, right from the comfort of your Facebook app.
