"Tik Tok" adds a feature that the public has been waiting for a long time: Muting live broadcast comments!

 The TikTok platform has added a new control option for live broadcasters that enables them to mute comments from individual viewers within the broadcast for variable periods of time.

Live broadcast hosts will now have the option to mute specific viewers for a period of a broadcast - or the entire broadcast, if they choose, a feature that audiences have long awaited and demanded.

And the platform indicated that now the host or his assistant can temporarily mute scenes for a few seconds or minutes, or for the duration of the live broadcast.

If the account is muted for any period of time, that person's entire comment history is also removed.

"Live hosts can turn off comments or limit potentially malicious comments by using a keyword filter," she added.

We hope that these new controls will enable hosts and audiences alike to have a safe and enjoyable live broadcast.

The added ability to remove all previous comments from users is a huge plus, which can help manage live broadcast interaction and reduce unwanted distractions.
