This covers everything from gaming and comedy to food and animals.
The move brings TikTok’s trending content into the home of people across the UK, France and Germany.
TikTok will now be available on Google TV and other Android TV OS devices starting Thursday 4th Feb bringing entertaining TikTok content direct to people’s televisions.

Rich Waterworth, General Manager, TikTok UK, said: “We’re excited to bring the creativity and joy of TikTok to Google TV and other Android TV OS devices across Europe. The TikTok on TV experience will be a new way for people to come together and enjoy videos from some of our most popular content categories on the big screen. Whether it’s learning a new skill or just having some fun together watching what you love, now more than ever, I feel this is a brilliant way for people to be able to enjoy their favourite TikTok content together at home.”
