Google prepares its app to show Instagram, TikTok videos to users

Google is working on a new feature that will allow users to see Instagram and TikTok videos on the Google app for the mobile device, according to the reports published by different media platforms on December 30, 2020.

A report published by TechCrunch suggests that Google has been indexing video content for years.

“It’s not clear to what extent it has any formal relationship with Facebook/Instagram or TikTok, however”, the report said.

“The feature is currently available in a limited way on the Google app for mobile devices and on the mobile web,” the company informed.

“The expansion to include Instagram and TikTok content in this carousel was first reported by Search Engine Roundtable,” the report mentioned.
