Just a day after Twitter did away with fleets, its Snapchat Stories clone, Tiktok has announced it is working on a new feature, TikTok Stories, which will allow it to explore additional ways for its community to bring their creative ideas to life.
Confirming the feature, Matt Navarra on Twitter shows that the feature will work similarly to other stories functions on apps like Instagram or Snapchat.

From the screenshots, users will be able to use Tiktok Stories by tapping a camera button from the new navigation bar on the left side of the screen. Users can also use common tools like stickers, text, insert sounds and even use effects on their content.
Like other platforms, users will also be able to record videos or upload photos, for the latter, users will take advantage of users’ larger camera rolls, rather than relying only on video.
The company has also officially confirmed the feature saying it will be available alongside its existing storytelling tools like videos, Duets, Stitch, and LIVE.
“We’re always thinking about new ways to bring value to our community and enrich the TikTok experience,” a TikTok spokesperson told The Verge. “Currently we’re experimenting with ways to give creators additional formats to bring their creative ideas to life for the TikTok community.”
