The past year has dramatically changed the way we live, work and play. With more of us spending more time at home, watching TV with loved ones, as well as enjoying content on our smartphones, we've been thinking about how we can bring the creativity and joy of TikTok to even more people across the UK.
And today, we're excited to announce the launch of TikTok on Samsung TVs, a new app that brings TikTok's trending content to the home, available on Samsung TV devices in the UK.
TikTok on TV has been specifically created for a home-viewing experience, allowing people to view the For You and Following feeds, as well as a collection of the most liked and viewed content on TikTok. This content has been organised into 12 categories covering everything from animals, comedy, food and gaming, meaning the whole family will be able to find something they enjoy.
People can also view a collection of #LearnOnTikTok videos so they can get the latest cooking hacks, fitness tips, and fun facts that TikTok has to offer.
As well as viewing a video, you'll also be able to like and comment on these trending videos. And because TikTok app has been designed with families and teens and in mind, people will also be able to block or mark content they are not interested in, with TikTok automatically operating in Restricted Mode, a feature that filters out content that may not be appropriate for all audiences.
The TikTok app can be accessed on all Samsung TV models from 2018 onwards, easily downloadable on the Samsung Apps store, and will be preloaded onto all new Samsung TVs purchased from today, with millions of Samsung TV owners now able to enjoy recipe hacks, comedy skits, challenges and more from the comfort of their sofa.
