TikTok is testing a new feature that allows users to scroll through content on the app without interface elements such as usernames, captions, and audio information cluttering the screen. Clear Mode was first spotted last week by former The Next Web editor Matt Navarra , with TikTok confirming to TechCrunch that it was testing the feature on Tuesday.
The company did not say when it expects to roll out Clear Mode on a larger scale. It’s also worth noting that TikTok may eventually decide not to implement the feature based on the information the company collects from users.
If you signed up for the test, you can access Clear Mode by long pressing a video and clicking on the appropriate option. As TechCrunch points out, the feature, if implemented, would make creators’ lives easier because they would no longer need to re-upload the clips people wanted to capture.
