TikTok is expanding the pilot of its Snapchat-style stories feature, which the platform first confirmed in the summer of 2021, TechCrunch reports. The feature works similar to Instagram, where stories last for 24 hours before they vanish.

To post a story, users should click the "Post" button on the navigation bar of the app. Then, scroll to a "Quick" mode. However, given that the feature is still in pilot mode, it lacks the scrolling bar of stories from accounts users follow.

Although the feature is still available not for all users, at least several creators from the UK and US have access to stories. A spokesperson for TikTok said:

Currently, we're expanding a pilot test, which provides creators with additional formats to bring their creative ideas to life for the TikTok community.

Earlier in March, TikTok launched an all-in-one platform for music creators called SoundOn. With SoundOn, music creators can promote their music together and get 100% of royalties without administration fees

To join the platform, music creators will have to sign a License Agreement to upload music to TikTok and exclusive partners (e.g. music streaming service Resso).
