Watch music videos on the big screen
Create your own unique videos or watch other streamers’ live feeds.
Join in the fun with Tik Tok for Windows. It’s a desktop version of the popular mobile app for iOS and Android.
Watch content from friends and other people you follow. There’s plenty of new videos to digest as they are uploaded constantly. Use the handy explore buttons to find the usernames of your favorite streamers. There are funny, talented, and outright questionable videos to discover, so you’ll never run out of original stuff to watch. Enhance your experience on the desktop version, as all of their videos have HD quality.
Don’t wait around for something to load. Tik Tok for Windows has a speedy load-up time so that you can get stuck into some entertaining content straight away.
Keep teens safe with parental locks. This option is available on the mobile version as well, but it works better on the desktop version because you can use Windows’ built-in locks, too.
Despite this, Tik Tok still remains an unsuitable program for teenagers if left unsupervised. The videos can sometimes have sexual themes or provocative dancing that parents might not want their children to watch.
Another downfall is that you have to download an emulator before you can use Tik Tok. They usually don’t take up a lot of disc space, but it can be frustrating to download a program and have it running every time you want to use Tik Tok.
Where can you run this program?
This program is available for Windows 10 and later.
Is there a better alternative?
Yes. LIKE is a similar video community and has more safeguarding options for teens.
Tik Tok for Windows doesn’t have the same appeal as its mobile version. It’s harder to create content on a desktop, but it remains a great choice for viewing content.
Should you download it?
Yes. If you want a desktop version of Tik Tok, this is the right program for you.
