TikTok is Now Available on Samsung And LG TVs Android TV Devices

TikTok is now playing on more connected TVs — bringing a stream of viral videos and memes to the living room.

The short-form video app, which claims to have more than 1 billion monthly users, has launched the TikTok TV app on Google TV and other Android TV operating system devices, LG Smart TVs, and Samsung Smart TVs in North America. The move comes three weeks after TikTok splashed down on Amazon’s Fire TV platform in the U.S. and Canada.

The move to the big screen is part of the company’s efforts to position itself as an entertainment destination and to capitalize on the growing audience for YouTube-like videos on connected TVs.  

The company noted that “the TikTok TV app is built for a TV home-viewing experience, making it easy to watch content from our 'For You' and 'Following' feeds on the big screen. This includes the most liked and viewed videos across a huge range of categories, from gaming and comedy to food and animals. To get started, people can login to the TikTok TV app with their existing account. There is also a 'Discover' page, which lets you find more of your favorite content, creators, and categories on TikTok.”
