Popular short-video hosting service, TikTok, announced that it is launching an adults-only live broadcasts feature.

TikTok made the announcement in a newsroom post this week, stating the new feature could be used for comedy routines better suited for people over age 18, or livestreams about ‘difficult life experiences’.

However, some users argued that the feature could be used to feature sexual content, as a user suggests that ‘TikTok is going down the OnlyFans route’.

Currently, people must be aged 16 or over to host a livestream on TikTok, although any users are able to tune in to watch.

However, this age limit will increase to 18 next month and creators will also have the option to limit the audience’s age to 18+.

The social media platform said, “The foundation of TikTok is built on community trust and safety,’ it explained.

“To protect our users and creators and support their well-being, we constantly work to evolve the safeguards we put in place.

“Today, we’re making additional changes and improvements to help our community have the best experience possible when they use LIVE.”

“Currently, people must be aged 16 or over to host a livestream on TikTok, although any users are able to tune in to watch these livestreams.

“However, this age limit will increase to 18 next month, while creators will also have the option to limit the audience’s age to 18+.

“Perhaps a comedy routine is better suited for people over age 18,’ TikTok said.

“Or, a host may plan to talk about a difficult life experience and they would feel more comfortable knowing the conversation is limited to adults.”
