What is TikTok’s “Post to View” feature on TikTok?

In mid-November, TikTok users noticed that photos or videos in their feeds were blurry.

A message reading “Post to view” was overlaid on the blurry media.

This means you cannot watch the clip without posting your own photo or video.

It’s a familiar concept if you’ve used the viral app BeReal, which blocks you from seeing fiends’ content until you create your own post.

How does TikTok’s “Post to View” feature work?

It’s all tied to a new BeReal-style feature called TikTok Now.

This allows you to snap a quick 10-second video – or photo if you prefer – to share with friends on the app.

And like BeReal, you can only view TikTok Now posts if you’ve made your own.

You will be prompted to write your post daily so you don’t forget it.

And while you can see a backlog of your own past uploads, friends can’t see anything other than your current TikTok Now.

To see TikTok Now, make sure you have updated your app to the latest version.

What have people said about TikTok’s “Post to View” feature?

Most reactions to TikTok’s new “Post to View” message have been general confusion.

If you go to Twitter, there are tons of messages from people who were surprised by the update.

Many frustrated TikTok fans also accused the app of copying rival social media platform BeReal.

One user wrote: “Wtf is TikTok’s ‘post to view’? And then you click on it and it looks like BeReal. Can’t an app just stay an app, dammit.”

Another said: “TikTok what do you mean post to watch? I don’t want to look at it anymore, your loss.”

And one wrote: “‘Post to watch this TikTok’ Absolutely not.”

A similar post reads: “I hate TikTok’s ‘Now’ because you can’t just watch them either, you have to post one too. Like TikTok isn’t trying to be ‘BeReal’.”
