How to Duet on TikTok

You can come across videos that are split into two and have one video remarking on another while browsing TikTok. In TikTok lingo, these videos are referred to as Duets.

They could consist of two or more people who harmonize, much like a musical duet. However, the Duet feature on TikTok goes far further than that, allowing users to respond to videos, have conversations, or even Duet with one another.

What Is a Duet on TikTok?

Since you already know that this style of film has a divide in the middle, let's delve a little more. Duets don't take place in real-time; rather, they begin with an original video to which users can add a response or follow-up.

You can only duet with TikTokers whose preferences permit it. Users have the option to disable the feature if they wish to maintain the authenticity of their message, if they fear receiving negative Duets, or if they just want the material to stand alone. Alternatively, they might only allow duets with people they follow back.

So how does duetting work on TikTok? Find the video you want to collaborate on in the first stage. It's recommended that you read up on how to make a TikTok video first if you're a total newbie.

You can look up terms like "a duet with me," "duet this," and other similar combinations if you wish to work with someone else. The bulk of them will be videos that ask you to interact with the creator.

Once you have located the video you want to use for your TikTok Duet, proceed as follows:

On the bottom right of the screen, tap the Share icon. It's the one with the bent arrow form.

Choose the Duet button from the pop-up box. You can go as long as it is not grey (sometimes it may be grey and still works, so always tap if you want to be sure).

The original video and the video from your camera are displayed side by side on the next screen.

Recording your portion of the Duet is the next step in the procedure. The fun begins here...

How to Duet on TikTok

To add your video to the TikTok Duet, follow these steps:

  • By using the Layout button on the right menu, choose your layout first. You have the option of the conventional side-by-side, a green screen, a reaction (in the corner of the screen), or top and bottom. Depending on your phone model, touch away from the layout options after making your choice by pressing the Back button.
  • To begin recording your response, tap the red Record button.
  • You can apply filters and effects once you're done.
  • Tap the V when you're finished.
  • You can add a voiceover, text, stickers, and more more effects on this screen.
  • Tap Next once more.
  • The caption, hashtags, and post can all be modified on the final screen. The handle of the person you created the Duet with will appear automatically.

How to Do a Duet on TikTok With Yourself

On TikTok, you may also record a duet with yourself. Pick a video from your profile and follow the same instructions to Duet with yourself. The Duet's original video does not, however, have to be fully released.

You might not want to disclose the first half of your duet to the public. In some cases, it doesn't look right without the other half of the duet or isn't interesting sufficient on its own.

In that situation, you should first make a private video by doing the procedures listed below:

  • To make a new video, press the Plus button.
  • Follow all the processes until you are happy with the outcome, such as adding filters, effects, stickers, etc.
  • Before posting, change the setting for Who Can See This Video to Only Me on the last screen.
  • Make sure to enable Duets as well.
  • Publish the video

You will then use your private film as the first half of your duet with yourself.

Use this video to begin the Duet with yourself by performing the following actions:

  • Go to the private videos page in your profile and select the video you wish to duet.
  • A pop-up displays when you tap the three dots on the right side of the screen.
  • To create a standard Duet, select Duet and proceed as directed.

Why Would You Want to Duet on TikTok?

What differentiates the Duet from other popular TikTok features like stitching other TikTok videos and TikTok Q&A, which lets users ask you questions? The first reason is artistic in nature—if you are moved and wish to participate. As previously mentioned, you are free to respond to a video with your own judgment or an alternative viewpoint.

You can dance along with other TikTokers, sing along to other singers (even renowned ones), play around with challenges, or come up with a complete interpretation. Some use it to collaborate with familiar individuals without having to be in the same place.
