Your Musical.ly Account Is Moving to TikTok
Our days of recording lip-sync video with Musical.ly are officially over, but the good news is that the app is living on, at least in a way.
Musical.ly has been united with the app TikTok, another short-form video app, following a merger last year.
The two are now part of an upgraded version of TikTok that the company says will "offer users an effortless, compelling, and personalized viewing experience."
Musical.ly members can rest assured their fun isn't over. Their accounts, videos and fans will move with them to TikTok when they update the current app, according to the company's press release. Additionally, they'll have new ways to engage on the app, including a reaction feature, enhanced creative tools, new background effects and more.
"Combining musical.ly and TikTok is a natural fit given the shared mission of both experiences—to create a community where everyone can be a creator," said Alex Zhu, co-founder of musical.ly and senior vice president of TikTok.
We haven't tried the new app ourselves yet, but it sounds like the change could very well be a good thing. There's definitely still more short video creation in our future.
