There was no official presentation even from the developers. And this despite the fact that even the smallest changes were previously announced. A subscriber activity tracking team was advertised a couple of months before the release.

Despite limited information, Matthew Brennan researched development.


TickTock previously allowed you to search for public videos. Private remain banned even today. The update has turned the world of search.

The developers allowed to detail. To do this, created the command “field”.

The user, watching the video, can send detail to a specific object. After a couple of seconds, the system will display content with a similar image.

Search is configured by a specific picture. That is, by highlighting the pants, TickTock will show a video in which the same model and color of clothes are displayed.

Selected items can also be found in Google. To do this, in the options opposite the name of the global network, a tick is ticked.
