TikTok or pause TikTok Now feature
TikTok is shutting down its BeReal clone, TikTok Now, according to a notice sent to users.
Multiple Twitter users posted screenshots of the message in different languages, which said ByteDance was "updating the TikTok experience and stopping using TikTok immediately." The news of TikTok Now's end comes more than nine months after it was officially announced, though it's unclear when the feature will disappear for good.
Launched last September, TikTok Now has the stated goal of facilitating "authentic and spontaneous connections on TikTok." But it's hard to ignore the fact that its format (which requires users to capture a moment a day using the phone's front and rear cameras) is almost identical to BeReal's smash hit last year.
What makes TikTok different is that, in addition to still photos, TikTok Now also supports videos up to 10 seconds long. In the U.S., TikTok Now is already available in the main TikTok app, while ByteDance has also launched dedicated TikTok Now apps in other parts of the world. Social media consultant Matt Navarra (Matt Navarra) confirmed to The Verge that he saw the notification announcing the discontinuation of TikTok Now in the main TikTok app on iOS.
