The Chinese video sharing social platform TikTok took 2020 by storm with all the entertaining video content uploaded by millions of users worldwide. TikTok is the world's most downloaded app for May 2020, which isn't surprising considering everyone you know practically has the app on their phones, whether as content creators or as mere viewers.

But if you've been around the internet for much longer, you might also recognize a similar platform called Musical.ly. Musical.ly is where people used to share lip-synced videos, similar to a lot of the content we see on TikTok these days. And if you think it's just a coincidence, it's actually not, because Musical.ly is what we know now as TikTok. In fact, when you visit the website musical.ly, you'll be redirected to tiktok.com.

For a brief history of TikTok: Its developer launched a similar app called Douyin in China back in 2016. The following year, they expanded to different locations outside of China by launching TikTok. In 2018, The Verge reported that the same developer acquired the popular video sharing platform Musical.ly and decided to merge it with TikTok prior to launching it to the rest of the world, particularly in the U.S. Now, TikTok is everywhere and has everything, from funny dubs, hashtag challenges, easy DIY recipes, to informative explainers.
