To enable TikTok users with Bell 5G to co-create with friends in real-time, Bell Mobility has joined forces with TikTok Canada. The new 5G multi-user augmented reality (AR) experience called the Paint Portal would allow the users to paint together while physically apart through Canada’s most awarded and fastest 5G network.
“The multi-user augmented reality aspect of Paint Portal is a global first, and Bell is thrilled to be the first carrier in Canada to power this exciting new feature with 5G,” said Nauby Jacob, Senior Vice President of Products at Bell Mobility. “This partnership is yet another example of how Bell 5G technology will enable new and unique ways for TikTok content creators to enhance their digital lives by sharing their stories, experiences, and videos in new ways.”
Paint Portal enables the users to use AR brushes to paint and co-create a 3D AR painting with their peers in real-time. Faster speeds, higher bandwidth, and lower latency of 5G make it a much smoother experience. TikTok’s existing tools and effects are compatible with Paint Portal, and users can also add music, stickers, and text to their creation before sharing it on the social media app.
“TikTok is a home for creative self-expression. We’re continuously evolving our in-app tools and effects to help our users create content that is entertaining and builds connection through community,” said Mike Gubman, Head of Distribution Business Development and Strategic Partnerships, North America at TikTok. “Partnering with Bell Mobility to bring Paint Portal, our first 5G and multi-user AR effect to TikTok, showcases the innovative culture that’s being driven by Canadians. We’re excited to see all the creative ways this effect is brought to life.”
