When you’re using TikTok to upload a new video you’re happy with, you might get an issue with the sound length, so you may be wondering how to use full sound on TikTok.
TikTok has updated the sound feature so it became better than before and more user-friendly.
However, you might don’t know how the TikTok app works, which leads to this misunderstanding situation that you’re having.
To use the full sound on TikTok, upload or record the video with the desired length, then add a sound based on that video length; Adding a sound with the same video length will let it play by following the default video duration.
The sound feature on TikTok works in a way to provide the user with a better editing experience.
This is why you certify that the sound has been cut automatically by the app or it’s starting from the wrong place.
So today, I will teach you how to use full sound on TikTok.
Why Won’t My TikTok Play the Full Sound?
TikTok won’t play the full sound in two cases, whether you’re trying to upload a sound that’s shorter or longer than the actual video.
In the first, case TikTok will let the sound end before the video ends.
For example: if the video is 30 seconds and you’ve selected a 10 seconds sound, TikTok will end the sound at 10 seconds and never repeat it until the video ends.
Now in the seconds’ case, TikTok will trim the sound automatically to correspond with the length of the video.
For example: if the video is 30 seconds and you’ve selected a 60 seconds sound, TikTok will automatically cut the sound to 30 seconds so it can start and end with the video’s default timing.
How To Use Full Sound on TikTok
To use full sound on TikTok, upload your desired video, then tap on “Sounds” to add a sound from the gallery that corresponds with the video length.
Make sure to select a sound that is always more than the video length.
Otherwise, you’ll be obliged to edit your video outside TikTok by using 3rd party apps in order to sync the audio and the sound length correctly.
One of the best 3rd party apps is CapCut, and it’s available for both iPhone and Android.
In this tutorial, we will assume that the video is 60 seconds long.
1.Add your desired video
First, you need to tap on the “+” button to add your video.
You can record the video you’re looking for or tap on the “Gallery” page to find a new video from your gallery.
After adding your desired video from the gallery or recording one, you need to upload a sound.
To do so, simply tap on the “Sounds” icon at the bottom of the screen.
Then the TikTok sounds menu will show up.
You can find the sound you’re looking for faster by typing it on the “Search Box”.
2.Select the sound you want to add
When you tap on the “Search Box” a new page will show up, which is the sounds gallery.
Now that you’ve opened the sounds gallery, you need to type the sound name on the search box to find it.
You can also stay on the “Discover” page to select a sound that has a similar length to your TikTok video in order to play it in full.
To do so, swipe down slowly on the sounds page and you’ll find +1 minutes +2 minutes, and +3 minutes menus.
These menus have a very long sound that you may like for your TikTok video.
Yet, as you want to use the full sound, we took a 60 seconds video as an example.
If you have a 60 seconds video, you need to upload a 60 seconds sound, which you can find on the TikTok sounds gallery.
3.Adjust the sound length
If you’ve selected a sound that’s longer than your video, you need to trim it manually before uploading your video.
Yet, if you have a sound length that corresponds to the video length, you can skip to the 4th step.
To trim your sound, simply tap on the “Scissors” icon just after selecting and adding your desired sound.
Then you need to tap on the sound’s timeline to swipe it to the left or right and select the start point of your sound.
4.Use the full sound on Tiktok
Finally, when you upload the sound and you’re ready to upload the video, make sure that everything is working well.
The last thing to consider is how the sound is starting with the video if it’s full and corresponds to the TikTok video or not.
When you’re ready tap on the “Next” button to upload the video on TikTok.
If you’re still facing issues with the sound length, you can check why won’t TikTok let you trim the sound.
TikTok sounds are crucial to your videos if you’re looking to go viral overnight.
By working on the sound feature, you’ll have to make sure manually that the sound is corresponding to your video length.
Otherwise, you’ll be risking getting the sound cut from the part that you wouldn’t want to.
So the only thing to consider if you want to use the full sound on TikTok is to upload a sound that has the same video length.
Keep in mind that you can bypass the rule of the same sound and same video length.
Today, you’ve learned how to use a full sound on TikTok.
