Tik Tok is testing Snapchat-style stories

TikTok has started experimenting with new Snapchat-style story features. Matt Navarra highlighted the feature on Twitter, and a spokesperson for the platform confirmed the test.

All social media apps tend to add stories and now it seems TikTok's turn has come.

This new feature called Tik Tok Stories appears to be similar to other Stories in apps like Instagram or Snapchat.

Stories will appear in the newly added sidebar, where you can see stories from the accounts you follow on the platform for 24 hours. Then it is automatically deleted.

Other users can also reply and comment on your story. Just like Instagram and other platforms, you can also click on a user's account picture to view the story.

The platform describes the functionality of the app as a new way to interact with fans. Users can create a new story by clicking the "Create" button added to the sidebar.

You can add subtitles, music, and generic text. Due to the nature of the platform, the story should be a video and not a static image.

A spokesperson for the platform said: “We are constantly thinking of new ways to add value and enrich the community experience. We are currently trying to offer additional formats for creators to bring their creativity to life in our community.

The company has not provided any information about the scope of the stories' functional tests and when a larger version might be released. However, a quick Twitter search revealed that many users of the platform have been given access to the feature.

Unsurprisingly, Chinese platforms are testing story features. This feature has become one of the essential elements of social media.

Platforms like Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, Xbox and Pinterest all mimic the Snapchat Stories feature, which was first launched in 2013.

If successful, this functionality represents a new way for users to interact with each other via the app. It also provides a new place to display. He usually keeps his social media apps comments feed going.

However, the story function is not always effective, this is the problem faced by Twitter, which decommissioned its fleet a few days ago. Due to the general indifference to the feature film, eight months have passed since its release.
