TikTok was created in China, so there is a separate version of the app for Chinese people. It is different from the platform that Americans or Russians use..
Russian-speaking users know from videos and pictures on the Internet that the functionality of Tik Tok in China has been expanded - you can find more original clips and convenient processing for original transitions in it.
The Korean version also features interesting effects. You can download the Chinese TikTok, but it is difficult to register in it, because it is advisable to connect a number from a local operator..
Signing up for Korean TikTok is easier and downloads are done in the same way. The article describes how to download these versions to your phone, as well as how to register in the application.
What is the difference between Chinese Tik Tok and ordinary
The functionality of the application is different, but only slightly. The big difference is in the interface. Korean and Russian TikTok without additional settings are presented in white, and Chinese in dark..
The location of settings and functions in the application in America, Europe, Russia is identical, but in TikTok Chinese the sections are located differently. TikTok's interface in Korean looks similar.
It is difficult to find the settings in the profile, because for this you need to tap on three strips in the upper right corner, go to the lower section with the nut icon, and then customize the page.
There is a section with friends' recommendations next to the recommendation feed, but you can open it only after filling out the profile. Otherwise, the menu will be empty permanently.
When working with a social network, users note that there is more choice among filters and masks. If in Russia users create mainly Tik Tok effects for entertainment purposes, then the Chinese and Koreans prefer to make more masks that apply makeup and correct the face.
The section with incoming messages looks different too. The menu at the top contains icons for sections with likes, comments, marks and messages.
