When TikTok started out, it allowed users to upload any sound or music from their app. However, TikTok discontinued that feature due to copyright concerns. In you want to add sounds to TikTok, you can use the built-in catalog or add your own music to a video using a third-party app.
How to Add Music to a TikTok Video
1. Record the TikTok video as you normally would.
2. Once you have the footage you need, in the bottom-left corner of the video, tap ‘Sounds.’
3. Select a song from the list of available songs.
TikTok recently signed deals with several major labels to make songs available here. Don’t see the song you want to add sounds to your TikTok? Tap ‘more’ at the beginning to see the full music menu.
You can click and drag the soundwave at the bottom of the app to choose the clip you want to play. Tap the checkmark when you’re done to select the portion of the song you want.
