Skipped a TikTok video? The app is testing a ‘Watch History’ feature


At one point or another, you’ve probably spent at least an hour scrolling through TikTok. But isn’t it annoying when you accidentally refresh your FYP and missed out on a potentially interesting video? The app is testing a solution that might fix that issue: it’s testing a “Watch History” feature with some users.

On March 27, social media consultant Matt Navarra reposted a tweet by Hammod Oh, who usually uncovers upcoming features that are tested by social media platforms. The post contained a screenshot showing that the latest watch history feature can be found in the “Content and Activity” section on TikTok.

Since the test is rolling out to selected users only, you can still try to go back to a video you want by saving it or giving it a “like”. According to TechCrunch, TikTok doesn’t have any further details to share about the test at the moment. The app’s spokesperson said, ‘We’re always thinking about new ways to bring value to our community and enrich the TikTok experience.’

Some people have found workarounds prior to the announcement of the test. A TikTok user who goes by @rachforaday shared a hack: Go to the Discover page’s search tab, type an asterisk, go to the search filter’s tab and switch on the “Watched Videos” button. After clicking ‘apply’, you’ll the videos you’ve viewed for the past week.

Since many users experience the dilemma of skipping on a video they like to watch, TikTok might roll out the new watch history feature to everyone. It would definitely make the process of finding lost videos easier compared to toggling on many other buttons.
