Adding to your amaze, the only difference between BeReal & TikTok Now notification is that, BeReal notification is bookend by alert emojis and TikTok Now notification is notified between Lightning Emojis.

Why Did TikTok Launch The TikTok Now Feature?

Instagram is reported to be developing its own time-based, ephemeral feature, while Snapchat and Instagram have already debuted front and rear camera functions. TikTok might feel this is the best time to take advantage of that and  beat its competitors by being the first one to launch BeReal to its platform.
