Making videos with TikTok is fun and easy. All you need to do is tap “record” and show the rest of the world what you got in a 15 to 60 seconds clip. You can use one of the many popular songs from the app’s media library to lip sync or dance to. The built-in editor is very intuitive and allows you to pause and continue recording at any time to create all sorts of cool effects. Do you want a fast and unexpected transition? Need to change your outfits throughout the clip? Maybe create a time lapse, slow things down or speed them up? You can do all of that and more without having any prior experience in video editing to come up with something cool, fun and even professional-looking!
But as you can imagine, participation is not limited to being a creator – one of the best features of the app is actually viewing videos created by others and enjoying hours upon hours of content any time you want! You can choose to only see the trendiest of them or look for hidden diamonds in the rough – it’s up to you.
Another interesting feature is streaming to a live audience. A creator is more likely to start doing that after getting some initial traction and gaining some followers. The audience can interact with the stream by reacting with the emojis that can be bought in the app’s own store.
What if you are not very comfortable with showing off your talents but would still like to contribute to the platform’s content base? Well then you can explore something called “duet mode”. By using it you can react to any video you like, enhance it by adding your own spin or make fun of it in millions of creative ways. You can even go crazy and react to another reaction! The possibilities are almost endless, so get out there and discover all these cool features yourself!
