TikTok has confirmed that a pilot test of TikTok Stories has begun

TikTok has revealed that its new narrative feature, TikTok Stories, is undergoing trial testing.

A representative confirmed the Snapchat-style story feature pilot-test to The Verge. “We’re constantly brainstorming new ways to add value to our community and enhance the TikTok experience[…] “Right now, we’re experimenting with methods to give creators more formats to bring their creative ideas to life for the TikTok Community,” a TikTok spokesman explained.

Before the confirmation, Matt Navarra shared a screenshot of TikTok’s beta version in a recent tweet. Currently, just a few users throughout the world have access to the feature.

TikTok’s stories function similarly to other social media stories in that they vanish after 24 hours and can be commented on by other users. Furthermore, the new storytelling feature will not be available from the existing home screen but rather by swiping left from the main feed or tapping the user’s avatar.

There is currently no word on how long the pilot testing will go or when the product will be released.
