Summary

The app itself revolves around sharing 15-second video clips, which are set to music often licensed from artists and record labels.TikTok is now beloved not only by lip-syncing 14-year-olds, but also by comedians, athletes, and, yes, brands. Follow creators who make you laugh, like @k.chh, who posts hilarious skits, or opt instead for adorable accounts like @cute_puppies12, which posts the tiniest dogs I’ve ever seen.You’ll notice to the right of every TikTok video a series of icons. If you want to film something in the moment, you can skip ahead and start recording without a musical track, which can be added later.Like Snapchat, TikTok has an array of AR effects that can be used in videos, which do things like change the color of your hair or eyes. It’s what makes TikTok’s signature dancing videos possible.TikToks can be up to 15 seconds long, but users can also connect multiple clips together for up to 60 seconds of total recording. You can also upload longer videos that have been recorded outside the app itself.Once you master regular TikToks, try experimenting with duets, which split the screen in half and let you sing the same song as another creator. TikTok will then register the track as an “Original sound,” which other users can then add to their own videos. If that sort of spam sounds unappealing, turn off TikTok notifications in your phone’s settings menu.TikTok also notifies users when popular creators are “LIVE streaming” (the feature isn’t available for every user).
