Finding a song you like on TikTok can be tough when you don’t know what it’s called. The app makes it possible to add songs to your videos, but what happens if you hear a song you like in someone else’s video?
Thankfully, TikTok’s designers have thought of that. It doesn’t take a lot of effort to put the music you like into the “Favorites” section where you can find it much more easily.
This article will teach you how to favorite and like songs and videos. That way, you’ll always have a selection of your favorite music and memories readily available in just a few taps.
Keep the Songs and Videos You Like
There are a lot of videos you can find on TikTok, and most of them have background music. When you run into a video you like and favorite it, where does it go? Well, if you’re having trouble finding it, we’ve got the solution for you.
There’s a little icon next to the “Edit Profile” button. It looks like a little bookmark. Tap it, and you will enter the database of all the videos you have favorited. The small links on top of the page let you navigate between tabs containing your favorite hashtags, sounds, effects, and, of course, videos. Everything is placed in categories, so you won’t have a hard time finding the video you want.
You can hear all kinds of songs in other people’s videos. Sometimes, you will hear something you like, and when that happens, you can save it for later! That’s a great little feature for people who love music because it allows them to discover new songs they may not have heard otherwise.
When you run into a video with a song you want to favorite, all you have to do is tap the little circular icon in the bottom-right corner of the post you are viewing. The name of the song and the artist will appear on your screen.
Just tap “Add to Favorites”, and the song will be saved in the Sounds menu. You can listen to it anytime you want, and you can also use it in your videos by clicking on the Favorites tab when adding sounds.
When you open a video you like, you can like it, leave a comment, or add an emoji reaction. The options that allow you to do that appear on the right side of the screen when the video is opened. If you want to like it, tap the heart icon, and it will turn red. You will see a number below the heart stating how many likes it has, and every video you like will be added to your liked videos section.
You can also like comments made by other people, just like you would on other social media platforms such as Facebook or Instagram. You do it by tapping the Comments button on the video and tapping the heart icon next to your favorite comment. Again, the heart will change color from gray to red, and the like count number will increase.
Share Your Favorite Videos on Other Social Media Platforms
TikTok is the go-to app for creating short videos, memes, and gifs. It’s got close to a billion registered users, but most of them don’t look at the feed in the app. If you want to make sure that your favorite video reaches your friends, you will have to share it on Instagram or YouTube.
The app allows you to connect your accounts on both of these social media platforms directly to TikTok. That means that you won’t have to save and upload videos to each platform separately. Instead, tap the share button while viewing the video in TikTok, and it will appear on your Instagram or YouTube profiles.
Sharing Is Caring
TikTok is quite fun to use. You can easily create short videos of you and your friends and share them in closed groups or on other social media platforms. The app allows you to come up with some original material designed especially for your friends, reminding them of some special moments and places you’ve experienced together. Add your favorite songs to your videos, and they will surely make even more of an impact. The possibilities are endless – you just have to be creative.
