Many TikTok users have noticed a change in tabs in recent weeks. There is the replacement of the 'Discover' tab with the 'Friends' tab among the other significant innovations. ‘Friends’ contains a selection of interesting videos from your friends, which significantly narrows down the selection range that was in the previous ‘Discover’ tab.

According to reports from TikTok officials, this innovation will become available to more users soon. The main advantage of the new "Friends" tab is that you will be able to interact with content that belongs to people related to you, which will make the process of watching videos even more enjoyable. Also, the "Friends" tab will contain the content of the people you follow, the accounts you have chosen, etc.

A new convenient feature for expanding your friends list will allow you to become friends with all your Facebook contacts in a few clicks. Perhaps you have a completely logical question: why is there a new 'Friends' tab when there is already a 'Following' tab? The thing is that with the new tab, your interaction with close contacts will be much more convenient, which will allow the platform to increase the social aspect in the future.

This new feature will allow TikTok to significantly expand its target audience because personal interaction will reach a part of the users of Snapchat and similar apps. So, we are on the verge of a possible jump in the popularity of our favorite app and we will be able to evaluate the effectiveness of the latest feature soon.

Have you been able to try out the updated TikTok tab yet? Do you think it will be more convenient to use the app with this new feature? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
