- TikTok was previously only available as a mobile phone app.
- A separate TikTok app is now available for Samsung Smart TVs.
- An account is not required for use.
The video platform TikTok is becoming increasingly popular in Europe too. So far, the app was only available for iOS and Android. If you wanted to watch TikTok on the TV, had to mirror the screen of his cell phone for this. This is over now: TikTok is now providing an app for smart TVs from Samsung ready.
There is a TikTok app for these TVs
The TikTok app is available on all 4K and 8K Samsung smart TVs released since 2018, as well as the premium TVs The Premiere, The Frame and The Serif. Not immediately on the latter, however. On “The Serif”, the app will only appear in the course of the first quarter, ie until the end of March.
Also on the announced smart monitor from Samsung should TikTok run as an app. It is already preinstalled on newly delivered devices; on models that are already available, it must first be downloaded from the Samsung App Store.
According to Samsung, users without a TikTok account can also use the app and view content there. However, when it leaves the factory, the app starts in “restricted mode” to prevent the display of content that is unsuitable for younger users. However, this can be deactivated if necessary.
