TikTok has added a new way for users to go live on its platform with an easy-to-use streaming software called TikTok LIVE Studio.
Though TikTok is primarily known as an outlet for viral videos on the internet, users can also stream live to the platform. Though it doesn’t have the same position in the market that platforms like Twitch and YouTube do, this new software is a push by TikTok to encourage more live content.
