You might have an issue with getting only the first piece of your video uploaded on the Instagram story, so you may be wondering how to post a whole TikTok on your Instagram story.
Whether you have a long TikTok video or a standard 15 seconds video, you can share it on the Instagram story.
Some iPhone users are facing an issue while trying to post the whole TikTok on their Instagram story, yet, on Android, apparently, this isn’t happening with all users.
The issue consists of getting only one piece of the TikTok video uploaded instead of splitting the whole video into multiple pieces, as it’s more than 15 seconds in length.
So to post a whole TikTok on your Instagram story, you need to save the TikTok on your device, then upload it manually to the Instagram story to fix the issue.
After doing so, your video will be fully uploaded in pieces if it was more than 15 seconds.
Today I will teach you how to post a whole TikTok on the Instagram story.
How to Post a Whole TikTok on Instagram Story
The only possible way to post your whole TikTok on the Instagram story is by saving the video to your device, then tapping on the “+” button on Instagram to fully upload it manually.
On Instagram, you can only post 15 seconds videos on the story.
However, TikTok videos could be longer than 15 seconds, as users can post up to 60 seconds or more.
So Instagram should automatically split the video on the story page.
By the end of this method, you’ll be able to post the whole TikTok on your Instagram without any issue.
1.Save the TikTok video on your device
First, you need to navigate to your TikTok profile page or Me page.
On your profile page, tap on the desired video that you want to post on your Instagram story.
Then on the video page, tap on the “Three Dots”.
A new popup will show up with a lot of options.
To save the video on your device you need to tap on the “Save Videos” button.
When your video will be saved on your device’s gallery.
You can also learn how to save your TikTok drafts on your camera roll.
After saving your video to your device’s gallery, you need to open the Instagram app.
On Instagram go to your profile page.
Now on the profile page tap on the “+” button that is at the top right of your screen to post the whole TikTok video on your Instagram story.
A new popup with multiple options will show up.
On the popup, tap on the “Story” option.
Then your phone’s gallery page will open, and you’ll see the last TikTok video that you’ve saved recently on the gallery.
Now tap on the video to select it, then tap on the “Next” button.
3.Post the Whole TikTok on your Instagram Story
Now that you’ve opened your phone’s gallery page, you need to tap on the video that you want to post.
Then, once you tap on it, you’ll be redirected directly to the story page, and Instagram will automatically split the video into multiple pieces if it’s more than 15 seconds.
So now you’ll see the whole TikTok video on your Instagram story and be able to post it.
Add your last touches to the video.
Then when you’re ready to share it, tap on the “Right Arrow” button.
To share your TikTok video to your Instagram story, you need to tap on the “Three Dots”, then when the pop shows up, tap on the “Instagram” icon.
When you navigate to your Instagram story page, you’ll be able to upload your TikTok there.
However, if your video is more than 15 seconds in length, Instagram will split it into multiple pieces.
For example, if your TikTok video is 60 seconds, Instagram will split it into 4 pieces.
So when people watch your story, they will see it in multiple portions.
This method is the conventional method to share your whole TikTok video on the Instagram story.
It works for Android and some iPhones (As some iPhone users are facing the issue above).
1.Tap on the “Three Dost”
First, you need to navigate to your TikTok app and open the video you want to share.
When you open it, you simply need to tap on the “Three Dots” at the bottom right of the screen.
Then a popup will show up.
On the popup, focus on the apps’ icons line, which is the one in the middle.
So you can swipe that line to the left or right to find the Instagram app.
Once you find it, tap on it.
2.Edit your Instagram story
When you find the Instagram icon and tap on it, the Instagram app will open.
On the Instagram app, you can select whether you want to share the TikTok to your Instagram “Story” or “Feed” for iPhone users.
For Android users, you will see multiple options in a popup, whether “Stories”, “Feed”, or “Others”.
So tap on the “Story” option.
Then you’ll be navigated to the story page and the video will show up there.
However, the video could be split automatically on the Instagram story into multiple pieces of 15 seconds each.
Now that you’ve got the video on the Instagram story, you can add your last touches to it.
Then, when you’re ready, simply tap on the “Right Arrow” icon to share the video.
A new popup will show up, with three options, which are “Your Story”, “Close Friends”, and “Messages”.
To share it with your Instagram story tap on “Your Story”.
Then your video will be shared in your story.
If you can’t share your TikTok to Instagram story, it’s because you’re trying to share someone else’s video that hasn’t enabled the share button, or because the video is more than 15 seconds.
If the video is more than 15 seconds, and you’re using an iPhone, you need to follow the method above in order to post the whole TikTok on your Instagram story.
Because there is a bug in the app that led to uploading only the first 15 seconds of the video.
However, it could be a connection problem.
So restart the app, and check the DownDetector website for TikTok server issues.
Sometimes you could waste your time on TikTok while figuring out how to do a simple task as well as on Instagram.
As they have a lot of options, and they update the app nearly every month.
So you need to follow these updates to understand how to share posts and videos.
If you have a longer than 15 seconds post on TikTok and want to post the whole video on Instagram, you need to save it to your device.
This is the only way that you can do for now to fix the issue in the meantime until Instagram fixes the bug.
Today you’ve learned how to post a whole TikTok video on Instagram.
