The popular social media video service seems to be testing out a new feature within iOS 14.
First discovered by Appleosophy’s Brahm Shank, it looks like TikTok is trying to integrate iOS 14’s App Clips feature into its own app.
Looks like @tiktok_us is testing out App Clips. Notice the icon under @iBeckTech ‘s message. However, when I tap on it I get a message saying the App Clip is unavailable. @appleosophy pic.twitter.com/tUkTbmMRem

Apple defines App Clips as, “a small part of an app that lets you do a task quickly, without downloading and installing the full app. You can discover App Clips in Safari, Maps, and Messages, or in the real world when you rent a bike, pay for parking, order food, and more.”
So far, we have only seen App Clips be advertised at ExxonMobil gas stations.
It is good to see more apps slowly adding support for the new feature or just showing signs of testing it out.
What do you think of TikTok potentially testing out App Clips on its app? Let us know on Twitter at @appleosophy.
