Understanding Duets on TikTok


What Is a Duet?

A duet on TikTok is a feature that allows users to create content alongside another user’s video.

With this feature, creators can interact, collaborate, or respond to other users’ videos, making it an exciting and engaging way to connect with others on the platform.

Duets are a popular type of content on TikTok, whether it’s for collaborative performances or humorous reactions.

How Duets Work

To create a duet on TikTok, follow these steps:

  1. Open TikTok and find a video you’d like to duet with.
  2. Tap the share icon (an arrow pointing to the right).
  3. Select “Duet” from the sharing menu (Note: Some users may choose not to allow duets with their videos).

Once you’ve completed these steps, the original video will appear on the right side of the screen, and your camera view will appear on the left side.

Record your own video while the original plays simultaneously. This will create a split-screen effect, showcasing both videos side by side.

To view all the duets created with your TikTok videos, you can use the search function with the following steps:

  1. Launch the TikTok app and tap Home.
  2. Tap the magnifying glass icon at the top right corner to access the Explore feature.
  3. In the search box, enter — duet @<your username> or #duet @<your username>.

Remember to keep your content friendly and respectful as you engage in duets on TikTok.
