Tik Tok is a video sharing app, but now it will also be possible to play games.
According to a report , TikTok has introduced a few mini-games in the app.
These are 9 games which can be added as add link option before uploading a video.
People watching this video will be able to click on the link to play the game, while they can also record the game playing which can be posted on Tik Tok.
A TikTok spokesperson confirmed the games, saying, “We’re always trying to improve our platform and test new features.”
The spokesperson said that we are currently trying to make HTML5 games a part of Tik Tok.
According to the report, the purpose of the games trial is to see how users react to content based on games.
These 9 games are developed by various gaming studios and are currently available to TikTok users in the US and UK.
The trial was launched after a report suggested that Tik Tok was planning to branch out into gaming.
The company expects this way people will spend more time on the app and increase advertising revenue.
Along with TikTok, other companies are also offering games in their apps.
Snapchat recently introduced an augmented reality game while Netflix is also focusing on gaming.
