TikTok is testing a new feature called “Refresh” surface videos based on how you use the app after you press the button, according to spokesperson Jamie Favazza.

You can leverage the feature if you are getting too much of the same thing on your feeds or if the videos being served are not relevant or entertaining anymore.

The new tool will only be available to a small number of users at this time.

TikTok, which was the most downloaded app worldwide in 2022 with 656 million times, launched more audience controls for creators, which enable them to restrict their content to adults over 18.

The tech giant allowed creators to restrict content in TikTok Live, meaning that some live streams wouldn't show up on the “For You” pages of minor users.

The platform will also remove any content that violates its community guidelines and continue to educate creators on these policies.

"Our goal has always been to make sure our community, especially teens on our platform, have a safe, positive, and joyful experience when they come to TikTok," the company said in a post.
