Make sure you meet the age requirement

TikTok Now has set some age restrictions on its use. The feature is only available to users who are at least 13 years old (or 14 in South Korea and Indonesia). And users aged 18 years and over will be able to take a TikTok Now.

Update your TikTok app

If the TikTok Now feature is not working for you, there is a good chance that you are running an older version of the app, which does not have the TikTok Now feature. So, go to the store and make sure the TikTok app is fully updated.

  • Restart the app and your device.
  • Check your Internet connection.
  • Go to DownDetector to see if there are any issues with the TikTok servers.

Since TikTok Now is a recently launched app, it is inevitable that there will be problems with it. The OG app, BeReal, also had many issues at the start such as the BeReal notification not working issue and the can't add friends bug. But the developers acted swiftly to fix these bugs.

We can expect a similar reaction from TikTok developers as well. Hopefully, they will iron out all the bugs asap and make sure that the app works well for all users.
