TikTok is one of the most popular social networks around. The creators are overwhelming and the platform has every interest in expanding the possibilities if it is to attract even more users. It is for this reason that she announces today the introduction of TikTok Jump.
TikTok announces the introduction of TikTok Jump
TikTok allows content creators to create videos with very funny music and filters, but the company announces the arrival of a new feature called TikTok Jump. With this new option, creators will soon be able to add a new level of interactivity to their videos by integrating functionality from other applications directly into their videos.
To link features of third-party applications in videos
What exactly does this mean? In the video below, the Whisk recipe sharing app is a good example of app integration. Let’s say you’re shooting a cooking video on TikTok. You can integrate a Whiskey recipe in your video, making it easier for your subscribers who would like to make this recipe too.
Among the other integrations already possible, one could quote Wikipedia, Quizlet, StatMuse, Tabelog and Breathwrk but we suspect that other options will be quickly and regularly added.
According to the TikTok release, “Designed by third-party vendors, Jumps are mini-programs and services that creators can link to their videos. Users around the world can click these links to explore recipes, take quizzes, discover hands-on learning tools and more, creating more dynamic and useful experiences for our community.”
Right now, this feature seems limited to some handpicked users. Under test therefore. But there is no doubt that it will be deployed on a large scale very soon. To be continued!
