tik tok

Tik Tok app has gained a lot of popularity in a very short amount of time. This is probably (wait for it) because it is not a new app. This app is a sort of a revamp of an existing app popular by the name of Musical.ly. So, are they the same app? Is it different? What’s going on? Let’s find out what the app is all about and what are the differences between the two names that we’ve heard:

Tik Tok App

Tik Tok is a global video community. It mostly is based on music. It is a platform where people can share their dance, freestyle or performance the users can get creative, make a snippet and share their own expressions right here.

Tik Tok is meant for people all over the world. It allows users to make short videos that are unique and can be shared easily. This app claims to boost the creativity of the people while giving them a constructive platform to pass their time.


Musically too is a global video community. This will also enable users to create wonderful short music videos. Musically has lots of filters and beauty effects along with a sing-along library to facilitate its users in creating a wide variety of wonderful videos quickly and easily.

What is the major Difference between the two?


Tik Tok has seen a major user base in Asia. South East Asia and East Asia have the maximum number of users here. However, the thing with Musically is that it has found more popularity in America and many European countries.


The primary content of the Tik Tok app include:

  • low comedy,
  • funny video,
  • daily life video,

However, the most important part of the content remains to be the background music or the voice

With musically it is slightly different. It focuses on the User’s own creativity to use the app in order to create short videos. It mostly includes:

  • gesture dance,
  • imitate singers
  • Video clips.

Has there been a merger?

More like a takeover. An amicable one as the sources indicate. Merging these two apps have been quite a wise thing to do because now, with the combined user-base, it is one of the world’s most popular entertainment app. Essentially; the Tik Tok app was an international version of the Chinese app Doujin.

The app took flight in its early days here but with its tremendous popularity, an international version was the best possible solution. Now, with these two together, the app has more than 300 million monthly active users.

Why do people use such apps?

Social media has become a popular tool for communication these days. People find it interesting to create unique videos and share them with the people on a public platform. The thing about the tik tok app is that it gives anyone a celebrity status quickly.

The youth feels celebratory. They feel like they are important and can be on the screen where the world can watch them. Mixing popular music snippets with their own personal videos is quite empowering in many ways.

How usable is the app?

Well, if more than 300 million users are actively using this app, then there is no doubt about the fact that it is quite user-friendly. The interface is extremely intuitive and just glides on from one step to another easily.

The beauty of this app is that just like any other social media app this app keeps upgrading itself continuously. Making new changes allows people to stay interested and updated all the time. This app is a unique form of social media. People unbeknownst to each other can share their videos and view them too.

It gives you a perfect environment for a global amicability like never before. The best thing is, it awards the people with a constructive way of utilizing their time. It helps in creative and cognitive thinking in a fast, fun and happy way!
