The popular short video sharing platform TikTok has recently been working on some new features for its ever-growing user base. utilities, 9to5Mac reports about a new feature that makes your TikTok binge experience more distraction-free, so you can focus on the content you’re watching at any given time.
TikTok is working on a ‘Clear mode’ to limit distractions
TikTok’s Clear Mode has been noticed by Matt Navara and it seems that the social media platform is currently testing it with some users. When you decide to go for Clear mode, all usernames, captions, and other buttons are removed from the interface for distraction-free content consumption and scrolling experience.
The test is currently running with a limited number of users. If you are one of the users for whom the test is available, you can access Clear mode by tapping and holding the screen in the app. The function will then appear under the ‘Add to favourites’ option.
For now, the feature is in limited testing and there is no official date when it will be released to everyone. However, once it is released it will make the TikTok experience better as most of the distractions will be removed from your view. Yeah, that means it’ll be even harder to stop watching those cute cat videos while you’re supposed to be at work… But that’s not all. TikTok has also been testing some new changes it plans to implement. One is a live mobile gaming feature that allows content creators to better interact with their viewers during live streaming. In addition, TikTok is working on a way to let you identify comments you don’t think are relevant via a private button you don’t like. Don’t worry, the dislike button is not visible to the commenter or the public, so nobody’s feelings would be hurt.
