Samsung is now bringing TikTok to its users on a bigger screen! The new dedicated TikTok TV app for Samsung smart TV will allow users to do more than just stream their favorite shows and movies on TV. With the TikTok TV app, viewers can now also watch TikTok videos and check out their feeds without opening their smartphones.
Many people are using the TikTok app for entertainment and promotion. TikTok has been one of the most popular and downloadable apps in both iOS and Android app stores. Users have the chance to show themselves off, especially by doing endless TikTok challenges. Even celebrities are joining the bandwagon of endless TikTok videos published every day!
With the TikTok mobile app, you can create any video you want using your phone. All you have to do is record a 15-second video where you can dance, sing, do stunts, perform magic tricks, or do anything you can think of. It is fun and addicting to a lot of users. The new TikTok TV app, however, offers more on just enjoying the videos already in TikTok.
The social media TV app is available for Samsung users within Europe. It will kick off in the UK with other countries following suit. Unfortunately, the TikTok TV app is only compatible with Samsung smart TVs manufactured from 2018 and up.
How to Download and Install the TikTok TV App on Samsung Smart TV
The TikTok TV app already comes preinstalled in the newer Samsung TVs. However, if your TV does not have the TikTok app yet, all you have to do is download it from the Samsung app store and install it directly on your TV. Just keep in mind that the minimum TV model that supports the app is those from 2018 and beyond. Here’s how to do it.
- Open your Samsung Smart TV.
- Go to the Samsung App Store.
- Search for the TikTok TV app.
- Click Install/Download.
- After installing, you will see the TikTok TV app among your list of apps.
- Click the app to open and use it.
How Does the TikTok TV App Work on your Samsung Smart TV?
Like the mobile app, the TikTok TV app has the user’s feed, where you can see your videos arranged vertically from the top. You can log in to your account to get more personalized content. However, you can still directly check out and watch the videos even if you don’t have a TikTok account.
There are different categories to choose from with various daily uploaded videos. You can also comment on content, like it, open it to view, or block content you don’t like. If you are looking to upload or create your own content, unfortunately, you cannot do that in the TikTok TV app. You need to use the mobile app.
