The “Watch History” feature is tested by TikTok – 9to5Mac

As reported by Tech Crunch, TikTok is testing a “watch history” feature with some users. The Watch History feature allows TikTok users to locate previously recommended videos on their “For You” page – with the amount of new content constantly hitting the platform, it’s easy to accidentally refresh before having the chance to like a video.

A TikTok spokesperson said Tech Crunch the company is constantly looking for ways to “enrich the TikTok experience.”

The feature was found by Twitter user Hammod Oh, which frequently covers testing features on social media platforms. Beta users will find this feature in the “content and activity” section of the settings.

Although this is a long-awaited feature for many users, some have found workarounds for this problem. TikTok user “rachforaday” shared a video that shows users how to locate a lost video. It has since gained 5.5 million likes and over 100,000 shares.

Other platforms like YouTube and Facebook have similar watch history features installed. Another social media giant, Instagram, which offers Reels, has yet to create a watch history feature on its own platform. There is a clear desire for this kind of functionality and hopefully it will come to TikTok soon.

TikTok said Tech Crunch that he had no more information to share regarding this feature.

Will you use this new feature if it comes out?
