TikTok Takes on Instagram with New Photo-Sharing App


According to recent evidence, TikTok is preparing to release a new photo-sharing app called TikTok Photos. AssembleDebug, a code sleuth, discovered various strings within the latest version of TikTok APK (version 33.8.4) that suggest the imminent launch of a dedicated platform for still images.

The leaked code reveals intriguing features, including the ability to share and sync photo posts seamlessly between the main TikTok app and TikTok Photos. Users may also enjoy improved visibility, reaching like-minded individuals who appreciate photo posts.

While TikTok already allows users to share photos in the existing app, the move towards a dedicated photo-sharing experience could be seen as a strategic response to the competition, particularly from Instagram’s dominance in the photo-sharing space.

The app’s icon, featuring a stylized “P” with a photo print motif, aligns with TikTok’s branding while distinguishing itself from the main app’s music note logo.

Although TikTok has not officially confirmed the app’s launch, the evidence within the code suggests an imminent release. This development comes amid growing pressure on TikTok, with the US Congress set to vote on a potential nationwide ban this week.

As TikTok faces challenges on multiple fronts, the introduction of TikTok Photos signals the platform’s determination to diversify and compete in the dynamic social media landscape. It remains to be seen how users will respond to this new venture and whether it can pose a credible challenge to Instagram’s established presence in the photo-sharing domain.
