Here's How to Talk Over a Sound in a TikTok Video

TikTok is home to millions of funny, trending, and useful videos that have paved the way for people to connect with each other in a whole new way. While it's always enjoyable to scroll through the platform and watch everything from cooking to dog videos, posting your own videos is just as fun. So, first things first — how do you even do that? Follow these step-by-step instructions to learn how to do that, plus how to talk over a sound in your video to make it the best it can be.

Once you open the TikTok app, hit the plus-sign button at the bottom of the screen. Once you tap that sign, you'll be taken to a new screen where you can either record yourself in the moment or pick a saved video that you can add from the "upload" section. From here, tap the music note with the word "sounds" next to it on the top of the screen, and you'll be prompted to pick a song. Click the song you want to play over your video, and tap the red checkmark that appears next to it. You can then record or upload your video. When you're done doing that, tap the red checkmark at the bottom of the screen. The app will show you your video back and give you the option to do a voiceover. To do this, hit the circle button that says "tap or long press to record," then record what you want to say. And that's it! Your video is ready to roll.
