The LIVE subscription service has been a long time coming, seeing as competitors have offered a similar service for quite some time. The LIVE subscription service will roll out starting on May 26.
LIVE will allow TikTok creators to have a new way to earn income. According to a brief post on TikTok’s blog, select creators will be able to turn on the feature on May 26, giving them a new way to connect with their community. The biggest benefit of this will be that it will allow creators to earn a predictable income each month.
