TikTok is going to launch a new photo sharing app, poised to challenge Instagram's dominance. The administration of the popular platform for short videos has already notified users about the upcoming debut of a new app for photo posts dubbed TikTok Notes, according to the startup, internet business, innovation, and website-focused outlet TechCrunch.

About the new app

The announcement indicates that users will be able to install TikTok Notes to share publicly accessible photos or opt out of this feature. Alongside photos, users will have the ability to post text updates.

TikTok is indeed "exploring ways to empower our community to create and share their creativity with photos and text in a dedicated space for those formats," explained the platform's administration. However, specific launch dates for TikTok's new app were not disclosed.

In March, news of TikTok's photo-sharing app surfaced when references to the TikTok Photos were found in the app's code. Evidently, the project is now poised for an official launch, positioning the new platform as a formidable competitor to Instagram.

In TikTok Notes, it's likely that users will have access to photos they've previously shared on the main TikTok app, allowing for an immediate pool of users and content without requiring additional effort.
