Tik Tok finally rolled out its question and answer feature to everyone. I know you must have seen it on some accounts on Tik Tok. It was still being tested then and was only available to a few popular verified accounts on Tik Tok.
With this feature, Tik Tok is looking to facilitate engagement and communication between creators and their followers.
What is Tik Tok Q & A about?
Tik Tok explained “In videos, users will be able to designate their comments as Q&A questions which are then labeled as questions in the comment section. This makes it easy for a creator to quickly identify and answer questions identify and answer questions in their videos’ comments”.
Tik Tok users can ask questions via a button in the comments section of a creator’s video thus enabling the creator to respond to the question in the replies or via another video. Creators can also add stickers to signify they are responding to a particular question in the newly created video consequently linking back to the old one where the question was first asked.
There is also a new Q&A section where all previously asked questions that have been replied to are listed linking back to the original content. This feature is also available in live streams.
