TikTok has unveiled a version of its popular app for Google TV and Android TV devices.

This will allow users to watch short-form videos on large screens such as smart TVs and even projectors.

“We’re excited to bring the creativity and joy of TikTok to Google TV and other Android TV OS devices across Europe,” said Rich Waterworth, General Manager at TikTok UK.

“The TikTok on TV experience will be a new way for people to come together and enjoy videos from some of our most popular content categories on the big screen. Whether it’s learning a new skill or just having some fun together watching what you love, now more than ever, I feel this is a brilliant way for people to be able to enjoy their favourite TikTok content together at home.”

The TV app has only been made available to users in the UK, France and Germany so far.

Content from the app’s For You and Following feeds as well as most viewed content on the app can be streamed via the app.

It follows the roll-out of TikTok onto Samsung TV models from 2018. Samsung TVs purchased today will now come preloaded with the TikTok app.
