TikTok fans will be able to access the app via Samsung Smart TVs after the two companies announced a new global partnership.

Samsung viewers in the UK are the first to be able to access the app, which has been specifically created for a home-viewing experience, allowing people to view the ‘For You’ and ‘Following’ feeds, as well as the majority of the most liked and viewed content on TikTok.

The past year has dramatically changed the way we live, work and play. More people are spending more time at home, watching TV with loved ones and enjoying content that entertains and educates through our smartphones.

This has led us to think about bringing the creativity and joy of TikTok to even more people across the UK. The new TikTok app will give the millions of Samsung TV owners access to trending recipe hacks, comedy skits, challenges and more – straight into living rooms across the country.

The app will launch on Samsung TVs in Europe in due course.
