Latest TikTok Features

TikTok is known for its many publicly available features, focusing on popular content that appears viral and is viewed heavily by users on the platform. TikTok is known to change its algorithm to protect its users from harmful content that lands on their For You page for healthier use of the popular app.

Currently, TikTok includes the latest features in its apps, as many users are already on the platform and expect features previously found in other apps. GIFs are coming to Chinese social media, and GIPHY, a Meta company, would fill it. On the other hand, the famous green screen function can also use GIFs.

The social media platform is known to thrive during the pandemic, and it’s one of the few to have reached its full potential as a source of entertainment and news. The Live Studio app is a disgrace if those claiming what happened are true.

TikTok needs to address this issue for clarity and public awareness before a lawsuit emerges.
