Want to download TikTok Now but have no idea how to? We will make it easy for you.
TikTok’s BeReal clone app is gaining traction outside the US according to some reports. If you want to give TikTok Now a try and see what it offers, this article will help you with downloading the TikTok Now app as well as understanding how to use it.
But before that, we recommend you see the TikTok Now vs BeReal comparison to ensure you are choosing to use the best among the two. So, without further ado, let's see how to download TikTok Now.
How To Download TikTok Now
In the US, TikTok Now is integrated into the TikTok app as a new feature, so you don't need to download the app separately.
With the most recent update, you will find the 'Now' tab (lightning icon) along the bottom navigation bar, between the main camera button and the Home page. In case you don't have the 'Now' tab, try updating your TikTok app.
Outside the US, TikTok Now is available as a separate app. The app is free to download and is available for both iOS and Android. It is worth mentioning that TikTok Now is not available in the countries where TikTok is banned.

How To Use TikTok Now
Just open the app or click the lightning icon (if you are in the US), and you will see the Explore Feed of TikTok Nows. It is like the Discovery feed in BeReal but here it shows Now posts that are trending or those from mutual followers.
There is also a Friends tab which you can see on the top beside the Now tab. It is the feed that will show the TikTok Nows of your friends. That means posts from anyone who follows you, and you follow back will appear there.
By default, only your friends can see your TikTok Nows. However, you can change the privacy settings to Everyone so anyone on the platform can view your TikTok Now posts. That said, if you are under the age of 16, you will not be able to tweak your privacy settings.
Here is what TikTok Now app onboarding looks like.
Regarding the working of the app, you'll receive a daily prompt to capture a 10-second video or a static photo to share with your friends what you're up to. When you click the prompt or notification, you will be taken to the TikTok or TikTok Now's camera interface and you must click a picture within 3 minutes.
