TikTok has changed the default font used throughout the app and users are not happy about it.
The Chinese social media platform keeps changing things to keep the app modern, innovative and exciting for users worldwide.
TikTok frequently makes changes to the feed, inbox, comments, layout and other areas, some praised and others hated.
In February, TikTok introduced an auto-scroll that users have been asking for for years — but the latest change hasn’t been well received.
TikTok changed the font
Many TikTok users noticed a subtle change to the app this week that made a huge difference to its appearance – the font is different!
The font that TikTok uses throughout the app, including in bios, comments, and direct messages, is a little different for some people.
Each letter is a bit closer together and the font is also a bit thinner, which some users probably didn’t notice.
However, others have spotted the difference, saying the new font looks “ugly” and makes them want to “puke.”
Users are not happy about this
One person wrote on Twitter: “Why did the TikTok font change…it’s so ugly.”
“WHAT IS THIS NEW TIKTOK FONT WTF???” said another.
A third person added, “WHY DID TIKTOK CHANGED THEIR FONT I’LL SCREAM.”
“Wtf is done with the new TikTok font. It makes me so stupid I need it gone,” wrote another.
Someone else tweeted, “What the heck is this new TikTok font.”
How to change your TikTok font
If you’re one of the few people who really like TikTok’s new font, you’ll need to update the app on your device to get it.
When they roll out a new feature, TikTok usually rolls out the change gradually around the world, so you might not have it yet.
Make sure your app is always updated to the latest version and as soon as the new font arrives in your region it will be applied.
Unfortunately, there’s no way to customize your account’s font, but the app could certainly introduce that in the future.
