TikTok TV Is Now Available In The Philippines
Filipinos may now use the TikTok TV app, according to the social media platform’s latest blog. It allows people to view TikTok on their TV screens.
The app enables users to watch content from the “Following” and “For You” feeds. It is available for Google TV, Smart Samsung TVs, Android TV OS devices, and LG devices.
Its recent article states the company launched TikTok TV to “inspire creativity and bring joy” to living rooms across the Philippines.
What are the other TikTok updates?
The company has been busy with other improvements besides expanding TikTok TV access. For example, it enabled livestreams last year.
That new feature allowed people to receive digital gifts from viewers. Then, they could convert those into real money.
As a result, it lets users earn more money from the video-sharing app. Also, TikTok encourages content creators to post longer videos to profit from its new Creativity Program.
Specifically, their clips should be longer than a minute so that they could earn from the Creator Fund.
It is similar to how the YouTube algorithm works. Most YouTubers post 10-minute videos to ensure they can earn ad revenue.
TikTok is well-known for its seconds-long videos, so some users became confused. Yet, the company insisted that long-form content is important for its long-term objectives.
The Creativity Program is open to a select group at the time of writing. A few months after enabling livestreams, the company announced it is testing a full-screen feature.
TikTok clips have a vertical orientation, so flipping your phone to a horizontal position would make it appear smaller in the middle of the screen.
The upcoming feature will adjust the aspect ratio so that the videos display properly regardless of screen orientation.
Aside from TikTok TV, the video posting platform will implement a 60-minute limit of daily screen time for users younger than 18 years of age.
Watch TikTok for more than an hour, and the app will require teen users to enter their passcode. Also, parents and guardians can use Family Pairing to control their usage.
TikTok TV allows access to users in the Philippines so that they can watch clips on their TV sets. Specifically, it works on smart TVs like those from Google and Samsung.
Other apps have been implementing numerous features rapidly. For example, Mark Zuckerberg says Meta is developing AI personas for Facebook and other apps.
Nowadays, these technologies are a significant part of daily life, so everyone must adapt. Start by following the latest digital trends at Inquirer Tech.
