TikTok has been experimenting with an auto-scrolling mechanic for a few months now, which lets you watch TikTok hands-free.
Tiktok is recently testing auto scroll feature to ease of using this Bytedance platform.
You need not to use your finger to scroll for the next video. An upcoming autoscroll feature will do the swiping for you automatically.
As the name implies, autoscroll disables looping and automatically skips through the video you are watching to the next video.
