TikTok fans will be able to access the app via Samsung Smart TVs after the two companies announced a new global partnership.
Samsung viewers in the UK are the first to be able to access the app, which has been specifically created for a home-viewing experience, allowing people to view the ‘For You’ and ‘Following’ feeds, as well as the majority of the most liked and viewed content on TikTok.
“We are exceptionally proud and excited to be able to launch the TikTok app on our Smart TVs,” said Dan Hastings, director, TV/AV Samsung Electronics (UK) Ltd. “With our QLED technology, customers will be able to watch the TikTok content creations on a big screen with lifelike picture resolution to maximise their viewing experience.”
Rich Waterworth, general manager, TikTok UK added: “The past year has dramatically changed the way we live, work and play. More of us are spending more time at home, watching TV with loved ones and enjoying content that entertains and educates through our smartphones.
“This has led us to think about how we can bring the creativity and joy of TikTok to even more people across the UK. Our new TikTok app will do just that, giving the millions of Samsung TV owners access to our trending recipe hacks, comedy skits, challenges and more – straight into living rooms across the country.”
The app will launch on Samsung TVs in Europe in due course.
