TikTok, the immensely popular short video-sharing app, is reportedly testing a grid layout on Instagram, which is owned by Facebook. Recently, an official post with a screenshot on Twitter hinted at the introduction of Instagram-inspired features such as a grid-style layout, an account switcher, and a Discover page. Several newspapers and online tech portals have published news articles on this development, suggesting that TikTok may soon launch on Instagram for its users.
According to a spokesperson quoted by TechCrunch on Saturday, “We’re always experimenting with new ways to improve the app experience for our community.” With TikTok, users worldwide can create and share short videos that gain popularity on social media networks. Launched in 2017 by ByteDance, the iOS and Android social media video app specializes in short lip-sync, comedy, and talent videos.
