TikTok to integrate Stories with its main ‘For You’ video feed


Last year, TikTok launched its Stories feature. This is very similar to Instagram Stories and Snapchat. While TikTok Stories isn’t available for all users yet, the social network has been testing a new design that integrates Stories into its main video feed.

According to Matt Navarre, TikTok Stories now appear in the “For You” feed and not its own tab. Photos and videos from Stories can be identified when scrolling through your feed by a blue “Story” tag.

TikTok calls Stories “Quick” now in camera mode. This suggests that the company is still trying to decide the right name.

Like Instagram Stories and Snapchat Stories, videos and photos shared on TikTok Stories disappear automatically after 24 hours. TikTok now allows anyone to see Stories that have been shared by public profiles.

Instagram is also changing its app to be competitive with TikTok. Meta, formerly Facebook, is currently testing redesigned Stories that feature vertical scrolling and video Stories of up to 60 seconds. A small number of users from Brazil and Turkey have access to the new features.
