TikTok is now one of the most popular apps in the world. From now on, the application will “fight” for your attention not only on the phone but also on the TV. TikTok developers have announced a special version of the Android TV app.
So far, the app is only available on select Google TVs and not in all countries. Even though this version of TikTok is made specifically for TVs, the image will not stretch to full screen. The video can only be viewed in portrait mode, like on a smartphone.
Navigating the app is pretty straightforward. The right and left navigation buttons on the remote control allow you to scroll the video forward and backward, respectively. And pressing the “More” button will bring up an additional menu in the application.
f you’d like to test it for yourself, you can download the new Android TV TikTok experience from the Play Store now.
