TikTok is the social network that gained prominence especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, where people could take refuge and share their talents with friends, or just spend time watching funny videos. And although it is constantly under fire, the truth is that the Chinese social network has remained firm and with constant news to continue to captivate its audience and attract new elements.

Proof of this is that now, like Netflix, TikTok has also included minigames on its platform. There are currently nine games available, and in some regions users can already test them!
