Why use the TikTok app?
The main difference between TikTok and Musical.ly lies in its huge reach. Since its release, the download and install volume of the international version of TikTok has been ranked first in the US market and first in the list of the App Store or Google Play. TikTok currently has 5 times more active users than Musical.ly, with 100 million active users in June 2018.
TikTok is not directly accessible on Windows. If you want TikTok to run on your PC, you will need to install another software, namely Bluestacks. Once done, install TikTok using Bluestacks. You will need to run Bluestacks every time you want to use TikTok, but it's a small price to pay for it on Windows.
