Released in September 2016, TikTok is a popular social media app for iOS and Android devices. It features videos under 15-seconds that are created using a library of sound effects and songs, which can then be accessed by the community. Users can also respond to videos by a "duet" response. These features provide opportunities for users to collaborate with one another, making videos based on the same original concept.

TikTok gained new features and users from Musical.ly, a similar app that was acquired by ByteDance on August 2, 2018, and then was merged into TikTok.

The TikTok app can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store, or the Google Play store.
