Whether you're a new TikTok user or a long-time fan, TikTok is constantly releasing new, amazing features within the app.
From special effects to video editing tools, the platform is dedicated to turning your visuals into something spectacular.
In this post, you'll learn about 9 of the newest and/or coolest TikTok features that you should be using. These features may be exactly what you need to turn any run-of-the-mill posts into viral sensations.
9 TikTok features to obsess over
We want to make sure you’re getting the most out of the TikTok app. That means you’re taking advantage of all the cool TikTok features that will wow your viewers and help you get noticed when someone is scrolling.
Do note: If you happen to notice that some of these features aren't available within your own app, they may become available to you at a later time.
As with many social media platforms, some features may be rolled out in phases. This means that only a small sect of users will be able to use new features at any given time.
Social media platforms do this to gain feedback and understand how these features will affect the experience on the platform.
#1 - TikTok speed tool
Highlight the most exciting part of your TikTok posts with the speed tool. Do some slow-mo on an awesome skateboard trick.
If you’re doing a #edutok post or a product demo, a slow-mo may help people really see what’s going on.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, speeding up low-interest parts of your video could help you retain the most viewers. While every second should captivate your audience, speeding up your video keeps things moving.
#2 - TikTok filters
One of the easiest ways to completely transform the look of your TikTok post is to add a filter.
This awesome, albeit common, TikTok tool can make your videos go from DIY smartphone recording to professional-looking content that looks like you paid for it.
In the Mojo app, we offer hundreds of great filters that can totally change the vibe of your videos.
#3 - TikTok Stitch
If you want to gain traction on TikTok, enable your videos to be stitched into other users’ content.
This TikTok feature lets other people take a snippet of your post and incorporate it into theirs. The Stitch feature is particularly useful for highly engaging content since it offers an opportunity to expand your reach wider and wider.
When someone uses a snippet of your video, a link to your original content will automatically be added in their post.
Just think of the growth potential you could have!
On the flip side, you should also consider stitching other people’s videos into your own. This could add diversity, interest and collaboration to what you normally post.
#4 - TikTok voiceover tool
Instead of using video audio all the time, try using TikTok’s voiceover tool.
This type of narration adds another element to your posts. It can even help you create vlog-style content.
Plus, if you don’t have to show a video of you talking, just imagine what interesting content you can share! The voiceover TikTok feature can really create a more cinematic experience!
#5 - TikTok Duet
This TikTok feature consists of a split screen effect. When you see a video worthy of a duet, you can tap the “Duet” button and incorporate it into your next post.
Not only are TikTok Duets fun to watch, but they’re a great way to mix up the kinds of content you put out.
Whether it’s a duet song, a duet dance or something else entirely, TikTok Duets expand your posts into something bigger and more collaborative.
#6 - TikTok audio customization
You can always add music and sounds to your TikTok videos, but why not mix together your own stuff?
When you use custom audio, you can blend sounds and songs in your own way. Think of yourself as a DJ mixing up audio to add interest and uniqueness.
Custom audio can be done using a video creation app.
#7 - TikTok React
Did you recently see a TikTok post that made you react strongly? Tell the whole world about how it made you feel with TikTok React.
All you have to do is click on the post you want to react to, and choose the React option. You’ll be able to record your reaction, snag the snippet and edit the rest of the post like normal content.
And here’s a tip: Authenticity works wonders on post engagement. So, if you can record an unscripted, off-the-cuff response, people may absolutely love it!
#8 - TikTok Live
Even though TikTok Lives aren’t the same thing as a regular TikTok post, this feature can revolutionize how you TikTok (and how you reach your audience). So, we included it in this list.
TikTok Lives let you interact directly with other users in real time. For these kinds of posts, you don’t really need all the fancy video work. You just need a little time and a bit of rapport!
If you’ve never done a live session before, we actually have an entire post dedicated to hosting an awesome TikTok Live for the first time. Check it out!
#9 - TikTok enhance tool
Once you try it, you may start defaulting to the TikTok enhance tool. It may also be called “beauty mode.”
It’s a super common but ultra-popular TikTok feature that simply makes your content better in every way possible.
If you want your face to appear smoother and your skin tone more even, this TikTok beauty feature does exactly that. Using the TikTok enhance feature may help you save on applying makeup every time you want to post.
A fast and simple way to create spectacular posts…
