A short video service called TikTok announced a series of changes soon to address the age limits on the platform. This is an increase in the age from which users will be able to conduct live broadcasts, as well as the launch of strims aimed at adult audiences.
At present, any TikTok user over the age of 16 with at least 1,000 subscribers can broadcast live. Starting on November 23, live broadcasts will be available to users only from the age of 18. In addition, people who perform live broadcasts will be able to direct their content to a more adult audience. Currently, live broadcasts are available on the "For You" tab and on a separate tape. Livers will be able to mark by reporting that the content they produce is aimed at the adult audience.
At the same time, TikTok announced new tools for content authors who broadcast live. First, the authors will be able to connect up to five guests using different effects. In addition, the developers have updated the key word filtering function for live aircasts to send messages to the lead discussers about the need to add blocked key words and propose other key words.
