TikTok, the application that surpassed Google in number of visits in 2021, continues to develop new features for its users. Recently, the social network has extended the maximum length of videos. Gone are the 3 minute videos, users can now create much longer content, between 5 and 10 minutes depending on their choice.

However, as our colleagues from the TechCrunch site tell us, TikTok is currently testing a brand new, rather practical feature. In effect, the application will soon make it much easier to find the videos already watched by the user. As you will have understood, the social network teams are working on a viewing history of listed content in the “For you” feed.

Thanks to this tool, you will be able to get your hands on videos in a few clicks that you did not like by accident, for example. If you are a regular TikTok user, you know that there are already ways to browse your TikTok video history, but they are not really convenient and intuitive.

TikTok wants to make searches for previously watched videos easier

One of these methods is to go to the Discover page, press Search, enter an asterisk, then activate the “Watch videos” option in the Search filters tab. Conversely, this new viewing history will be much easier to accesss, since it will suffice to go to the application settings to consult it.

For now, this feature is in test course with a small panel of users. In fact, it is impossible to know for the moment when TikTok will decide to deploy this tool to the general public. The company did not provide details as to a possible release date. “We are always thinking of new ways to bring value to our community and enrich the TikTok experience.” said a spokesperson for the social network.

As a reminder, TikTok is one of the only social networks still available in Russia. Nevertheless, the application is deprived of 95% of its content, and especially the users of the country no longer have the right to create new videos. The app made the move after Russia passed the Misleading Information Law, which provides for heavy prison sentences for anyone who makes statements that differ from the Kremlin’s version.
