TikTok has begun testing clear mode a new feature that removes the titles and buttons when scrolling through videos.
The platform says this new ‘clutter-free’ experience makes it easier for people to share screenshots of their favorite content.
The new ‘clear mode’ allows users to scroll through content on the app without interface elements like usernames, captions, and audio information cluttering the screen. It was first spotted last week by social media expert Matt Navarra:

TikTok did not provide more information on how many users are included in the test nor when we could expect clear mode to roll out more widely. As always, it’s also worth noting TikTok may ultimately decide against implementing the feature based on information the company gathers from users.
If you are part of the test, you can access the new TikTok Clear Mode by long-pressing on a video and tapping the new Clear Mode option.
As TechCrunch points out, the feature, if implemented, would make the lives of creators easier since they would no longer need to re-upload clips people want to screenshot. You’ll often see TikTok users drop a “crop” comment on a video because a caption or button has obscured part of a video they want to share.
