An official tweet from TikTok, offers a quick glance at what TikTok Notes does. One feature to take note of is the ability to add headlines to images above captions, which is not natively offered by Instagram. It’s also unknown as to what limitations it has, say maximum number of photos, available layouts, or if it can access the same library of music (if you can even add one) as the TikTok app.

The app’s homepage appears to be divided into two sections: one displaying posts from accounts the user follows, and another “For You” section with posts curated based on the user’s interests and accounts they follow on TikTok.

TikTok announced the development of TikTok Notes earlier this month but did not provide extensive details about the app at the time.


Q: How is TikTok Notes different from Instagram?

TikTok Notes introduces a few distinguishing features, such as the ability to add headlines above image captions and a homepage divided into separate sections for following accounts and a “For You” feed. Additionally, the app’s two-column grid layout is reminiscent of Pinterest’s design.

Q: Which countries can currently access TikTok Notes?

TikTok Notes is currently available for download and limited testing on Android and iOS devices in Canada and Australia.

Q: Will TikTok Notes automatically include users’ existing TikTok photo posts?

Yes, TikTok has stated that users’ existing and future public TikTok photo posts will be populated in TikTok Notes unless they choose to opt out of this feature.
