TikTok launches its first personalized annual recap feature, ‘Year on TikTok’ for the MENA region

For a limited time only, TikTok users in the region can access the special in-app feature which will recap a user’s favorite videos, trends, creators and effects of 2020.

There’s no denying 2020 was a challenging year for many of us, but it was also a year full of incredible moments of creativity, imagination and a year that brought the community closer together than ever before. That’s why TikTok is giving its users in the MENA region the opportunity to take a trip down memory lane with its first “Year on TikTok” in-app feature –  a special recap that highlights some of the TikTok moments that defined their 2020 on the platform.

From most-played tracks to favourite creative effects, Year on TikTok allows users to revisit some of their defining TikTok memories in true TikTok style. Each personalized video highlights TikTok favourites from their 2020, and even shares a handful of top “vibes” based on the kind of content they loved most or interacted with.

“We’re inspired daily by the ingenuity and heart of our thriving community here in the MENA  region, and we’re excited to help celebrate all the ways our community made TikTok a joyful, fun place in 2020,” said Rami Zeidan, head of video and creative at TikTok. “With this new limited time only feature we hope to continue sparking joy and we encourage users to relive some of their favourite moments of 2020 on TikTok and share their videos with their community to enjoy!”

How to access ‘Year on TikTok’ in-app feature

‘Year on TikTok’ can be accessed by simply opening up the TikTok app and selecting the ‘Year on TikTok’ icon on the ‘For You’ feed. Users can also find it on the ‘Year on TikTok’ banner on the ‘Discover’ page.

To keep the New Year celebrations going, when users share their Year on TikTok video on TikTok they’ll unlock a special “2021” badge that can be added to their profile photo. So whatever your vibes, remember to share your video and “vibe” of 2020 with your friends and followers on TikTok and beyond!
