TikTok released a new software-development kit Monday in order to enable third-party applications and developers to integrate with the video creation app’s platform for the first time ever.
The Share to TikTok SDK is part of the company’s new TikTok for Developers program, and TikTok said in a blog post that integration gives users of third-party apps the ability to upload videos directly to TikTok from the editing platforms of those apps.
TikTok wrote, “This new Share to TikTok feature enriches the content available on TikTok, diversifies the types of videos users can discover and offers more editing choices for users to explore in addition to TikTok’s built-in creative tools. Most important, it gives users multiple avenues to create new original, high-quality content using platforms with exciting creative tools.”
On the developer side, the company added, “By engaging with the TikTok SDK, third-party developers will not only provide a new channel for creators to share their creations, but also expand the reach of their own platform through specified partner hashtags.”
TikTok introduced the Share to TikTok SDK at Adobe MAX 2019 at the Los Angeles Convention Center Monday, as Adobe Premiere Rush, an all-in-one app for creating and sharing online videos, is one of the initial integration partners.
Adobe Premiere Rush is joined by:
- Enlight Videoleap, an app that enables users to create videos on-the-go.
- Medal.tv, which enables gamers to record their highlights on their PCs and send them to their mobile devices.
- Momento GIF Maker, an app that uses a smart detection algorithm to create moments from photos already on users’ devices.
- PicsArt, an all-in-one photo- and video-editing app.
- Plotaverse, an app that enables users to animate images and add video overlays.
