Of course, TikTok’s move into gaming is not as urgent as what happened with Netflix – the company is losing users to rival services like Disney+.
Vietnam was chosen as a test site because 70% of users are under the age of 35 – which is a target of TikTok. The source also added that the gaming function could come to other Southeast Asian countries as soon as the third quarter of this year.
