TikTok has added a search shortcut at the bottom of videos

It's been six years since ByteDance released its famous short video platform, TikTok. Since then, the application has been breaking records, becoming one of the fastest to reach over one billion downloads.

As it appears, the platform is planning to introduce some new changes to its interface. As per the latest Tweet of Matt Navarra, a social media analyst and researcher, the platform is going to add a search shortcut on the homepage, at the bottom of the videos. However, it is still not clear whether the search will be based on frequent searches or just keywords or hashtags.

One of the main reasons why TikTok is used by people of all ages is that the interface has been designed to be as simple as possible. According to the screenshot shared by Matt, the new search bar will be present above the home button, which will make searching more accessible, as currently, the option has to be accessed from the top right corner.

Lately, the app has also been working to provide a safer experience to its users. Earlier this week, it was announced by the officials that the company is working on a new research API to provide improved access to the public for the posts being made on the platform.

Soon after this announcement, it was revealed that the developers are all set to roll out the beta variant of the API and have requested the Content and Safety Advisory Council to analyze its performance.

According to TikTok, the company is seeking help from members with specialties in aggressive, violent, and extremist behavior, as well as upcoming high-tech applications, to examine the beta API.

On the other hand, while security is being ensured, initiatives are also being taken to inform the creator that someone has saved their video as a favorite. Previously, the owner wouldn’t be notified of the names of people adding their content to favorites, but now the whole process will be transparent, with the creator having full access to the names.

TikTok said that the company is always seeking out ways through which they can give a much better user experience by ensuring a protected environment for the users.
