Samsung Electronics Ltd and TikTok have launched the TikTok app on Samsung Smart TVs in Europe. Put simply, this means that people will enjoy watching the ‘For You’ and ‘Following’ feeds from the comfort of their home on a bigger screen. It has more entertainment such as #LearnOnTikTok videos for fun facts and cooking advice and workout tips.
This app is available on Samsung Smart TV models which were released from 2018 onwards. TikTok is accessible on all Samsung Smart TV models from 2018 excluding The Sero, which will have the app available later on next year.
As for the app itself, the content will be available for everyone as it does not require a TikTok account.
“We are exceptionally proud and excited to be able to launch the TikTok app on our Smart TVs. At Samsung, we strive to give our customers an unrivalled content offering to guarantee endless entertainment and the latest addition of TikTok to our app line-up unlocks a new entertainment experience. With our QLED technology, customers will be able to watch the TikTok content creations on a big screen with lifelike picture resolution to maximise their viewing experience” said Dan Hastings, Director, TV/AV Samsung Electronics (UK) Ltd.
The app also announced that they will be extending the length of videos from 60 seconds to three minutes.
This idea of TikTok being on TV is great as it will have more viewers, another app which did this idea years ago is YouTube which in the last five years views are much higher on Tv rather than smartphones.
