With the latest TikTok Now feature, TikTok smuggledly rips off BeReal ...

TikTok has announced a new feature that represents the famous BeReal photo-sharing app. The company claims that this feature gives TikTok a fresh creative experience that connects you with those who follow it.

BeReal is a number of the most popular social apps available, offering two notifications at the same time, one using the rear-facing camera and another using the selfie camera. There is a two-minute countdown timer, and if you post outside the window, your BeReal post will state that you had posted late.

The new TikTok Now feature works quite the same way. Once a day, youll receive a Time to Now message that allows you to capture a 10-second video or a static photo to quickly share what youe up to. If you post within three minutes of the notification, your message will say that you were on time. Otherwise, it will say that you posted late.

TikTok is going all-in on this new TikTok Now feature. There are a few new Now options that you may re-enable in some countries. TikTok claims that TikTok Now may be available as a standalone app.

In the United States, TikTok Now may be available via the TikTok app. In other regions, TikTok Now may be available as well. As we learn more about this new creative format, the TikTok community may continue to experiment.

BeReal''s final outcome is a ruffled and unreported attack, which you may find on the App Store. Of course, Instagram has already tried to deactivate BeReal.
