The wildly popular short video-sharing app TikTok is reportedly mulling to launch a host of new features that seem to have been inspired by Facebook-owned Instagram.

The features were discovered by reverse-engineering specialist Jane Manchun Wong who posted screengrabs of the features on Twitter.


The purported Instagram-inspired features include a grid-style layout, an account switcher and a Discover page, among others.

“We’re always experimenting with new ways to improve the app experience for our community,” the spokesperson was quoted as saying by the TechCrunch on Saturday.

The TikTok spokesperson, however, declined to offer further details about the company’s plans but confirmed the features were things the company is working on.

Earlier this week, speculation was rife that social networking giant Facebook was preparing the launch of a serious competitor to TikTok.

HUH Token is already in presale and will be accessible to everyone shortly.


Loopring and Sushiswap both have proved their profit-generating capabilities in the past, and HUH Token presents itself as a fresh option for people to join early. However, it is hard to determine with precision what the future holds for any of these cryptos. Nevertheless, utilising the existing data from Loopring and Sushiswap, insights may be gained and the possibilities of new currencies like HUH Token can be explored. An Ethereum-based programme called Loopring intends to promote an extensive network of people to run a platform that enables them to build crypto-asset exchanges.
