How to Name Your Sounds on TikTok

How to Name Your Sounds on TikTok

TikTok lets you name sounds when you upload them to your TikTok profile. Let’s take a look at how to do this.

  • Open the app. You will see the app on your homescreen, or you will have to download it again from the apps store. It will have a musical note as the icon.

  • Upload a TikTok video without any sound overhead. Save the sound that you want to save on TikTok. Select the ‘+’ icon, and then record and upload your video. Select ‘next’ or the icon that looks like a checkmark. Adjust your video and then select ‘post’ to upload it.

  • Select the profile icon. This is the icon that looks like a person, and it’s located at the bottom of your screen. From here you will be able to see a list of all of your uploaded sounds and videos.

  • Select the video with the uploaded sound. Your videos are listed underneath your profile information at the top of the screen. Select the video that has the sound that you have just put on your profile. If your video hasn’t got any audio, then you won’t be able to choose it.

  • Select the ‘record’ button. This is the button that has musical notes coming off of it. It is the icon that looks like your profile image turning around on a record. You will find it at the bottom of your screen to the right. This shows the sound menu. As soon as your profile picture shows up on the record icon, you can select it. You might have to be patient for a few minutes for this feature to appear before you upload your video.

  • Select ‘edit’ or ‘set sound title’. This will be right next to the name of the audio at the top of your page. The default name will be ‘original sound’ and the name of your profile. You will only be able to change the name of your music file one time.
