TikTok releases new app for Amazon Fire TVs but it’s not what you think


TikTok has just released a new app, called More on TikTok, for all Amazon Fire TV devices. However, if you’re a fan of the video-sharing social network, prepare to be disappointed. The app is nothing more than a clunky cookie-cutter web app using the Amazon Creator web-tool that has plagued the Fire TV appstore with a steady stream of junk apps for years. The content in new TikTok app is simply just a subset of the exact same compilation and interview videos already found on TikTok’s YouTube channel. It doesn’t give you access to actual TikTok videos directly, like the mobile TikTok app does, and you’re better off just viewing its content directly on the TikTok YouTube channel using the YouTube app.

    FYI… TikTok has had a functioning website for the past several months. (previously it was only available as an app for Android or IOS). You can login to your account and such. Works fine through most browsers on FTV.

    Seems like a service that streams videos would want to develop a full throated app for the Fire Tv.
