TikTok has been ramping up its presence on the big screen, and Samsung is the latest TV partner to join the foray, offering the popular app through its compatible smart TVs in Canada and the U.S.
The TikTok TV app has been specifically created for a TV home-viewing experience, making it easy to watch content from the ‘For You’ and ‘Following’ feeds on the big screen. This includes the most liked and viewed videos across various categories, like gaming, comedy, food, and animals. There is also a personalized ‘Discover’ page, which lets you find more favourite content, creators, and categories on TikTok.
The app is available on all 2018-2021 model Samsung smart TVs and can be downloaded directly to the Samsung Smart TV from the app store. It is then accessible from the home screen via a single click.
Earlier this month, TikTok also announced its app would be available on Amazon Fire TVs, its first partner. Also announced recently is the TikTok TV app for Google TV as well as other Android TV OS devices, and LG smart TVs.
