TikTok’s Q&A is now official. The feature was first spotted last month when TikTok started testing it with users who had 10,000 or more followers. But now the app allows anyone with a creator account to log in.
Once activated, there are a few ways that users can take advantage of the question and answer stickers. When commenting, viewers can use the “?” Button to add your comment on a question. Video artists can then filter their comments to view all questions and record a video response. The feature also works in live streams, where developers have the ability to share and answer questions from their viewers in real time.
Finally, TikTok adds a separate “Questions and Answers” tab to the Creator Profiles that displays all of the questions a creator has previously answered. Viewers can also submit new questions directly in this Q&A section.
Questions and answers are already an important part of the TikTok culture as the app allows users to create video responses to specific comments. But comment areas can easily become unwieldy with popular videos. So if you have a special way of asking and answering questions, it can be easier for developers with a lot of followers. It also gives them the tools to avoid having the same questions answered over and over again.
