Instagram launched ReelsFacebook announced the launch of a new Stories format based on Instagram called Reels. Users will be able to record 15-second videos and edit them with effects, sounds, and other tools.
This feature that lives inside Instagram can serve as a complete replacement for blocked TikTok. The functionality completely repeats that of TikTok, only all your video masterpieces are stored on one platform. Reels can be published to the feed (then the video will appear in the general profile) or shared with a broader audience in a new dedicated section under the Explore tab. A tab for Reels will also appear on the profile page.
Hellooooo, Reels 🙌— Instagram (@instagram) August 5, 2020
Introducing a new way to create and discover short, entertaining videos on Instagram.
Reels is rolling out today to more than 50 countries around the world.
YouTube is developing ShortsYouTube has always been the main platform for video sharing and had no competitors. However, to create a good YouTube video, you need to have video shooting skills, and the editing functions may seem too complicated to the layman. With the advent of TikTok, the situation has changed, as short videos of low quality have gained immense popularity. To compete in this niche, YouTube has created an extension of its main app called Shorts. Its concept almost completely repeats the functionality of TikTok. The company has officially announced plans to launch the new feature in late 2020.
Byte is becoming more popularByte launched in January 2020, and in a very short time, the app managed to attract many users. It’s too early to say that Byte may take the place of TikTok, but the service is rapidly gaining traction among US teens.
This app is almost like TikTok only with modified functionality. Users shoot and upload six-second videos about whatever they want and share them with the whole world. Unlike other social media platforms, Byte does not show the number of followers in user profiles. Byte also developed a special partner program that will allow influencers to make money on content creation.

Google’s respondThe tech giant is not going to stand aside! Back in October 2019, Google was about to acquire a video-related startup called Firework.
How does all this affect TikTok?The competition in the IT world is merciless. Everyone is in a hurry to surpass every successful project. YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram will do their best to take the lead from their main competitor. The United States has always been a land of startups and new technologies, so this time, they will do their best to maintain their leadership position. Besides, it is no secret that TikTok was created in a communist country, which means that the content can be heavily censored, and the user’s personal data can be transferred to third parties. So TikTok competitors have a card up their sleeves.
