TikTok has expanded their suite of creation tools with new feature, Tiktok Now.
Tiktok Now is the platform’s newest way to be entertained and connect with others on TikTok.
The feature is meant to be a daily photo and video experience where users can share their most authentic moments with the people who matter the most.
TikTok Now invites users and their friends to capture what they’re doing in the moment using their device’s front and back camera. Users will receive a daily prompt to capture a 10-second video or a static photo to quickly and easily share what they’re up to.
In the MENA region, TikTok Now can be accessed from both TikTok and the new TikTok Now app. In some countries, TikTok Now may be available within TikTok, downloadable as a new TikTok Now app, or available in both formats.
TikTok Now is designed with the safety and privacy of the community in mind. Creators are in control of deciding who can view or engage with their content. They can block others and choose which comments appear on their content.
TikTok has taken further steps for safety and wellbeing.
- If someone under the age of 16 creates an account to use the TikTok Now app, just like TikTok, their account will be private by default
- Those under the age of 18 will not be able to share their content to the Explore feed
- People aged between 13 and 15 will have commenting options limited to Friends only to help protect against unwanted interactions
Those 18 and over have additional sharing settings. In addition to sharing with mutual friends, they can opt to share their posts with the broader TikTok Now community based on the privacy settings they have chosen. The default setting is ‘Friends can view’.
