TikTok is undoubtedly the social network of the moment and among its clips, funny duets and reactions are increasingly appearing. If you also want to know how they are made so you can do them yourself, this article is for you. In the following article, we will see how to duet on TikTok and use this fun feature that has been around since the beginning and has recently returned to the spotlight.

First of all, we want to reassure you: you don’t need a second account or a second smartphone to duet on TikTok or react. You just need to use the specific function that will put the original video on one side and your version or reaction on the other.

Making the best duets on TikTok

To create good duets that can engage your audience, the first thing you should do is get inspired by the content that has had the most success . A great way to create quality content in line with what the public expects is to see the best that are already available on TikTok. Doing so is quite simple, and it gives you the opportunity to understand how to best set up your duets.

Searching for duets is very simple:

  • open the TikTok appand go to the home;
  • at the top right, press the magnifying glass and search for “ #duet” (without the quotation marks).

You will find a whole collection, both of videos ready to make a duet with the lyrics already prepared and a large number of duets already made by other users of the social network.

How to Get Started Making Your Duet on TikTok

After seeing how other users behave, it’s time to choose a video and start practicing duets.

How to Duet on TikTok

  • open the video you want to duet with inside the TikTok app;
  • press the “ Share” button (it is shaped like an arrow, located at the bottom right);
  • and then at the bottom on the “ Duet” option.

At this point, after a short processing, the section dedicated to duets will open , here you will find the options that if you have made other clips will already be familiar to you. You can press on “ Flip ” to change camera, choose a different speed (between 0.3x and 3x), add filters (which change the mood of the clip), use the “ Enhance ” function to touch up your image (for example making the skin smoother), use “ Timer ” to set a time limit on the duration of the video, “ View ” to choose how to arrange the split-screen screen, finally “ Microphone ” to allow the recording of your voice.

It is essential to make sure that the “ Microphone ” is active, if it is deactivated it will clearly be impossible to record your singing performances. It is recommended, to record your voice at its best, to use a pair of headphones with a microphone.

Develop and publish your duet

Once you have done all this you will be ready to record your performance by pressing the record button at the bottom. Once you have finished capturing the performance you will be able to review the result and a whole new series of editing options will appear. Among these, the most interesting are:

  • the “ Effects” that allow you to drastically change the aesthetic appearance of the video;
  • “ Noise Reduction” to improve recording quality;
  • “ Audio Editing” to make your recording more appealing or funnier;
  • the “ Volume” to best adjust the audio levels of the clip, trying to ensure that both voices in the duet have the same volume;
  • finally, “ Privacy Settings” which allows you to choose who can see the video and whether to allow comments.

Once you have edited your duet properly, you can choose to insert it into “ Your Story ” using the appropriate button, or press “ Next ” to proceed with publication, inserting a description, tags and, if desired, a link. You can also choose whether to allow duets and “ Stitch ” in the publication options. We recommend that you allow high-quality uploading. If you are satisfied with the result, you can press the red “ Publish ” button. If you want to think about it a little more or improve your project, you can save it in “ Drafts ”.

Not all videos allow duets . If the option is grayed out, it’s not your app or your phone’s fault; it simply means the person who posted the video hasn’t given their permission to use the clip with the duet feature.

The “Duet” feature is not only used to show off your singing skills while singing with someone else, but it is also used for much more.

Use the “Duet” feature to create reaction videos

There are tons of reaction videos available on TikTok , some of which are really funny. If you want to make one yourself, recording your reaction to a particular TikTok clip, the duet feature may be perfect for you.

To add a reaction:

  • Open the video you want to record your reaction to, then press “ Share
  • then, tap on “ Duet”;
  • inside the interface to shoot the clip, on the right go to “ View” and choose “ Reaction”;

So the video will run in a small box and the rest will be occupied by you showing your reaction. At this point all you have to do is press the red button to start recording.

Once you’ve finished capturing your clip, you’ll have access to a whole host of editing options :

  • you can use “ Effects” to make your video more eye-catching;
  • using “ Noise Reduction” you can improve the quality of sound recording;
  • with the “ Audio Editing” option you can add some fun effects to make your reaction even more impactful;
  • finally, through “ Privacy Settings” you can choose who can see the video and whether to allow comments.

Once everything is ready, you can proceed with publishing by tapping on the “ Next ” button. On the next screen, you can enter the description, tags, whether to enable duets, the “ Stitch ” and upload in high quality (which we recommend you activate especially if you are on a WiFi connection).

You can finally complete the procedure by pressing the red “ Publish ” button. If you are still not convinced, you can always save your reaction in drafts and then edit and publish it later.
