Preliminary information

Before getting into the guide, I would like to give you a few preliminary information on the operations you are about to perform.

If you have come to this article with the aim of finding out how to put your own song on TikTok, I must disappoint you: at the time of writing, in fact, the platform has removed the “My Sound” function and, therefore, it is no longer possible to do this. The only solution would be to play a song while recording the video for TikTok (perhaps using one of the many apps to listen to free music currently available), but in terms of quality and comfort it is not exactly the best of life.



Be that as it may, fear not: you can create videos with background music using the multiple present in the app database. In the next paragraphs of the tutorial, I will have the opportunity to explain how to do this on both Android and iPhone. Have fun!

How to put a whole song on TikTok

Have you tried put a whole song on TikTok but didn't you succeed? Well, it seems obvious to me: since TikTok allows you to make videos that are no longer than 60 seconds, it is obvious that you cannot play an entire song (unless it is a minute or less, but it is highly unlikely).

You could publish multiple videos to post in series with various parts of the song, but even this solution is inelegant and, therefore, not recommended.
