TikTok has become one of the most popular applications of recent times. Russian technology giant Yandex wants to be a player in this race and is working on a similar application called Yandex Sloy.
TikTok is one of the most popular short video applications of recent times. With TikTok, users can capture videos on their phones and add effects to them, then share with their friends. With these features, the application has attracted much attention all over the world.
A few days ago, we shared with you that Google may acquire ‘’Firework’’, one of the biggest rivals of Tik-Tok. Yandex also recognized the interest of users on short video applications and is preparing to enter the race with Yandex Sloy.
Sloy means “layer” in Russian. One of the most important features Yandex Sloy offers unlike TikTok is the ability to recognize and label clothes. Artificial intelligence is used to label clothes, so that similar clothes and videos with similar styles can be categorized. The application also lets users add background music to 90 second videos.
Yandex Sloy has been tested for 5 months and managed to reach 3,000 users. The app is currently available only for iOS users in Russia. In the coming periods, it is planned to be distributed to both iOS and Android platforms worldwide.
