Dubsmash is a great music video platform that allows you to watch and create your own music videos, dance and lip-sync clips, and much more. People new to Dubsmash complain that it’s difficult to find your friends on the platform, which is why we’ve decided to help them out.
If you’re one of those people who want to find friends on Dubsmash, you’re in the right place. This article will tell you all about it. In short, it’s best to find friends using their phone number, but read on for more detailed info, tips and tricks.
Sign Up for Dubsmash
Before you begin, make sure to download, or update Dubsmash to the latest version using the official App Store or Google Play Store, depending on the type of device you have. Just follow the onscreen instructions; installation is really easy.
Once you install the app, you can start using it right away – it’s totally free. Anyone 13 or older can use Dubsmash. Note: many teens use this app, as it seems popular with this demographic.
When the app is installed on your phone, tap on it to get started. You’ll be asked for a valid email address, a password, and a unique username. When you set up your profile, Dubsmash will automatically ask you to add your contacts. Also, you need to allow Dubsmash access to your media files and those aforementioned contacts.
How to Add Contacts on Dubsmash
If you’ve created a profile on Dubsmash, it’s time to add your contacts. This is the simplest way of finding friends on Dubsmash, and we highly recommend that you use this method. Follow the steps:
- Upon your first login and registration of your account, Dubsmash will ask you to add your friends from your phone Contacts app. If your friends have Dubsmash installed on their phone, you’ll see their names and be able to add them.
- You can also invite your friends to install Dubsmash and reap some in-app benefits. Just tap on Invite and your friend will get an invitation to this fun app.
- Once they accept you within the Dubsmash app, you’ll be able to message each other and send each other your Dubsmashes (videos you create within the app).
This is probably the easiest way to find your friends on Dubsmash. But there is another way, which we’ll outline below.
How to Follow People on Dubsmash
While you’re setting up your Dubsmash profile, you’ll also be asked to follow people and get some recommendations. Here’s an example of how that looks like on your device:
These are usually very popular user accounts, also called Trending accounts. They have a lot of followers, in the thousands, and usually, they won’t follow you back in return. Don’t worry, you will get your follower count up pretty fast and become much more noticeable.
You can also use the search feature within the app by entering the exact term your friend used to create the account, a.k.a. their username. Since it’s very hard to come up with a unique name, because all of the good ones are taken, people usually use their name followed by a random sequence of numbers, e.g. John1234.
Finding your friends without their username or phone number is virtually impossible. For that reason, make sure to either add them to your phone Contacts or ask for their username on Dubsmash. The same applies for them when they want to find you.
Everything Is Better with Friends
When you manage to find your friends on Dubsmash, you can add them and share content with them. Besides Dubsmash, you can also send your Dubsmashes via Facebook and WhatsApp, using this app’s native sharing options.
Therefore, if your friends don’t want to install the app, you can use these social media platforms to share your videos instead. Are you having fun on Dubsmash? Who is your favorite creator? Let us know in the comments section below.
