Tiktok is now testing a new “Tiktok Stories” feature on their app.
The news is shared by the well-known social media consultant Matt Navarra on his Twitter account. You will see similar story features just like on Snapchat and Instagram.
The Tiktok stories feature will be located at the left sidebar on the screen from where you can simply swipe right from left and create a Tiktok story. In addition, you can also watch other Tiktokers’ stories from the same left collapsible section.
Matt also states that stories featured on Tiktok will disappear after 24 hours. So, you will be no longer to access or view Tiktok stories after 24 hours.
If Tiktok launches the stories feature and it becomes live to use then how you can make one? We will cover up that topic in this article.
Introduction Of New Tiktok Stories Feature
The new TikTok stories feature is experimenting on the app so that you can make stories similar to Instagram and Snapchat or Facebook.
It’s been so long since Tiktok hasn’t updated new features on their app and people are waiting for something new to try on.
And if they actually bring the stories then it will attract lots of users and also give value to increase the user experience on the app.
So, what’s new on the Tiktok Story feature?
Option 1. New UI Design
The stories feature on Tiktok look completely different from the rest of the stories on Instagram and Snapchat.
Instead of finding the Stories on the upper top section or bar, you will find Tiktok Stories on the left collapsible bar.
You have to swipe left from right to open the Tiktok story and also watch others as well.
Because of the UI design of stories, you find it less comfortable to use it for the first time. But you will used to it after using it several times.
Option 2. Editing Mode
As you can make Tiktok stories just like creating a new Tiktok video, you can also have a customizing option (somehow similar to Instagram). The editing tools will be quite different than the current ones in Tiktok where you can add sound, use voice-over and voice effects, filter and beauty, and more.
Instead of that, you can draw a line or something on your added pictures or video on your stories. Plus, you can also add text, stickers as well as music to it.
But remember, stories are just in the testing phase so the editing features may change. You may find more of the editing tools which I’ve mentioned or completely different.
Option 3. Comment Section
The stories featured on Instagram can only allow you to view who has viewed your stories. But in the case of Tiktok, you can also view and replay a comment that you have received on your story.
You can see how many people or users have commented on your Tiktok stories. After that, you can replay a comment on Tiktok with a text.
It is a good opportunity to interact with your fans and friends on Tiktok to keep them engaged with your videos as well as stories.
Option 4. Add New People
When you post a story on Tiktok then you can access the comment section too. There you will see all the thoughts from people or visitors about your story. So, not only your followers but other people can also view your posted stories.
Saying that you can also follow back and add more people to your Tiktok account from the comment section within the story feature.
If you find someone commenting positively every time you post a new story then you can follow that person back.
