TikTok might have competition from another video-sharing app called Triller. Here’s what you need to know about the app climbing the download charts.
The massively popular video-sharing app TikTok is one of the household names in social networking, but the Triller app has emerged as a competitor that is now being considered by some as a replacement for TikTok. While TikTok is facing difficulties, many other apps have started rolling out similar features. Besides Facebook’s TikTok-like Instagram Reels, Snapchat is gaining musical additions to videos sent to friends. However, there are some differences between Snapchat’s new feature, Reels and TikTok, and the same kind of differences will help determine whether Triller can keep up.
Differences in app design can change their appeal in an significant way, but it’s also important to compare just what is being offered. In the case of Snapchat, messages and videos can be sent in much the same way, but only to friends and only until that content expires. TikTok on the other hand, which has remained in the news lately for different reasons, supports public and lasting video-sharing which means the app can benefit from posts going viral. The same number of people could use both apps, but the number who will use them may depend on whether they fit a demographic which enjoys the spotlight more.
Triller, the self-styled social video platform available to download from Google Play and the Apple App Store lists its features beginning with making and sharing videos with aid from an ‘auto-editing algorithm.’ Next, the app claims over 100 filters and the ability to personalize content with the standard emoji, text and drawing capabilities. As well as video sharing across multiple social media hubs, complete with allowing musical tracks in user creations to add a definite layer of personality. These features are tried-and-true, but may not be the most striking Triller has to offer.
How Triller Compares To TikTok
At a glance, Triller offers the basic kit desirable from all multimedia sharing applications. What brings Triller in focus, however, is the feature of collaborating with others, even across the globe in a group video. That means others could be included in music videos shared on the app. A key difference between the app and Snapchat is, again, that videos can be public. Although that alone only brings Triller and TikTok to a similar model of content creation. Whether or not going viral realistically brings an app significantly more popularity in the public eye, the extent of collaborative features might be the key difference to watch.
Going back to the media-sharing model used by Triller, it stands to reason that this app has what it takes to outshine TikTok, but features alone can’t predict the future. Some may prefer social media networks and video-sharing apps which include only friends, and collaboration might not be the primary draw for users. Not to mention that even the best features can be poorly implemented by even big-name companies. Furthermore, there’s also the cascade of security related issues that have been experienced across different social media sites and it remains to be seen if Triller is any safer in this respect. The bottom line in this case is Triller is worth paying attention to, due to how big things have small beginnings, but it remains to be seen if it can reach a TikTok status anytime soon.
