In 2017 the Chinese company ByteDance bought the Shanghai-based video app Musical.ly in a $1 billion deal and relaunched under the name TikTok. The app allows its users to create and share short videos with special effects.
It was a great success and the app now has more than 80 million active users in the U.S. alone. The Chinese version Douyin is separate and has even more.
