‘TikTok Notes’ will compete with Instagram with new photo app

TikTok may take inspiration from Instagram’s OG days and adopt a photo-based format as plans to launch a new app move forward.

On March 11, a blogger named TheSpAndroid took a deep dive into the app’s APK and discovered a new “TikTok Photos” platform in the latest available version.

At the time, there were no other signs that this would become a reality. Now, some user reports suggest that the app will be called TikTok Notes for Notifications.

A social media user named Alex Friedman shared a screenshot of the notification on the X platform with the caption “Looks like TikTok is launching a new photo posting app called ‘TikTok Notes.'”

The popup features a toggle button so users can decide whether to transfer their photo posts to the new app. It reads: “Your photo posts will appear on TikTok Notes.

“TikTok Notes, a new photo posting app is coming soon! Your existing and future public TikTok photo posts will appear on TikTok Notes.

“If you don’t want your public TikTok photo posts to appear on TikTok Notes, please turn them off now.”

The Chinese social media company has yet to confirm or announce any details related to this, but a spokesperson said they are “committed to innovating” the brand.

Metro reported a quote from the spokesperson, who said: “As part of our ongoing commitment to innovating the TikTok experience, we are exploring ways to enable our community to create and share their creations with photos and text in dedicated spaces in these formats force”.

New apps that may be banned in the US

The new news comes at a time when TikTok’s future in the United States is under tension. After a vote in the House of Representatives, the app’s owner ByteDance faces a ban if it does not sell the platform within six months of the law’s passage.

Lawmakers are concerned about data and privacy issues because they believe the company could share information about 170 million U.S. users with China.
