With over 1 billion monthly active users, TikTok is already one of the social media platforms with the quickest rate of growth in the world. In some areas, it has even surpassed YouTube in terms of viewing time. Now, the business wants to increase the variety of things that its fans can do when they become bored watching quick movies. The Spokesman from TikTik has said that, “We always consider methods to improve our platform and test new additions that benefit our community on a regular basis. We’re currently looking into integrating with outside game studios and developers to offer HTML5 games to TikTok”
According to Reuters, TikTok intended to use the gaming library of parent company ByteDance, starting with short-duration minigames. It stated that tests had started in Vietnam. However, TikTok told TechCrunch it was incorrect and denied that it was actively conducting gaming testing in Vietnam.
Since the beginning of the year, rumours have been circulating about TikTok’s HTML5 mini-games. Zynga, a maker of mobile games, collaborated with TikTok to release Disco Loco 3D, a game that is comparable to Zynga’s other well-known game High Heels. There are also talks taking place to add more developers and studios to the list of partners that TikTok has worked with.
When the feature is used, TikTok will unquestionably have an advantage over its rivals.
