Social media platforms often borrow key features from each other. Remember how features like Reels and Shorts originally stemmed from the tremendous success of TikTok?

Now, it seems like TikTok itself is looking to borrow a new feature from Instagram.

Apparently, TikTok is about to introduce a “Collaboration” feature, allowing content creators to invite up to five others to participate in collaborative content.

Instagram launched something similar a while back. One creator sends an invite, the other accepts it, and both their names appear in the post, reaching the followers of both.

All of this was discovered by AssembleDebug from TheSPAndroid, who delved into the latest code of the TikTok app in version 34.1.15 and found hints about how the feature will work. Some of the strings found include the following language:

  • You are invited to collaborate.
  • You will be listed as a collaborator on this post.
  • It will show on your profile, but you can’t edit the post or withdraw any earnings they might receive.
  • You’ll be invited to collaborate again if you change your mind.
  • Do you want to decline the invitation?
  • Accept Invitation?
  • You are now a collaborator on this post.
  • You have declined this collaboration invitation.
  • You are no longer a collaborator on this post.
  • Pending Invitations.
  • Collaborated with…
  • Who’s in this post?
  • Invite Collaborators.
  • You can invite only 5 collaborators.
  • You will no longer be listed as a collaborator on this post and will be removed from your profile.
  • Do you want to leave the collaboration?
  • Content creators who accept your invitation will be listed as collaborators on your post. It will show on their profile, but only you can edit the post or withdraw any earnings they might receive.

It’s worth noting that you can’t invite collaborators unless the privacy settings for that post are set to “Everyone.” Additionally, you can’t invite collaborators unless your account is set to “Public.”
