How to do live on TikTok

It is certainly the social media on everyone's lips, so much so that even some Spanish politicians, such as Matteo Salvini and Giorgia Meloni, have landed inside it: we are obviously talking about TikTok, a Chinese platform launched in 2016 but exploded only a few months ago also here in the West. Right now it is certainly the portal that most intrigues, and which seems destined to be purchased by Mark Zuzkerberg's group (or replicated, as happened with Snapchat and Instagram stories).

Recently, after hearing so much about it, you decided to create your account on TikTok, the social network with which to share short videos of 15 seconds or less in which you pretend to sing or act out certain scenes with pre-recorded audio. It is the so-called lip-sync, so loved by teenagers. Now, after you've managed to amass a good following these weeks, you're wondering how to do live on TikTok in such a way as to create a more direct contact with your audience using the function that allows you to start direct streaming.

So take a few minutes of free time and read the next lines carefully: we are sure that, once you have finished reading, you will have a clearer picture of the operations to be performed. Before going into detail, however, we must first premise an important aspect: the function to start direct streams is only active for users who have reached the threshold of 1000 followers. That said, if you have this requirement, we can go.

How to live on TikTok with Android

As we have anticipated before, the procedure to be carried out to succeed in your intent is anything but long or complex. First start TikTok on your smartphone Android, then go to the screen that allows you to create new content and start the live broadcast. If you have already reached 1000 followers, you will see the button that allows you to broadcast live video, otherwise you will not be able to do so.

After starting the TikTok app and logging into your account, press the button with the (+) symbol at the bottom center of the screen and select the LIVE wording located next to the Video button. At this point you have to describe the topic to be addressed during the live broadcast by writing the title of the broadcast in the appropriate text field.

Once this is done, you can start the transmission: just press the button Go Live and wait for the countdown to finish. Now you can start talking to users who will connect during the live broadcast. It wasn't difficult, was it?

How to do live on TikTok iPhone

If you have an iPhone and you want to know how to do live on TikTok, you must follow the directions we are about to give you. The operations to be carried out, however, are very similar to those we have indicated in the previous paragraph for Android devices. And even in this case, the function can only be used by users who have reached 1000 followers.

Exactly as before, here too you obviously have to start the official TikTok app on your iPhone and log into your account. Once logged in, tap the button with the symbol (+) at the bottom of the screen, then select the LIVE item next to the Video button. Once this is done, you have to write the title of the broadcast in the appropriate text field and then start streaming by tapping the Go Live button.

Now the three-second countdown should start, then the live broadcast will start. If the title of the live does not comply with the content criteria of TikTok due to the presence of terms banned from the platform, you must change it, otherwise the broadcast will not start.
