BRUSSELS (Reuters) - TikTok will voluntarily suspend its new app TikTok Lite's reward programme while it works to address EU concerns, the company said on X social media platform on Wednesday.

The European Commission had given the ByteDance-owned company until today to address its concerns about the potentially addictive nature of the reward programme for children or face a temporary suspension of the feature.
