How to Change Music Volume on TikTok

TikTok is home to millions of user-generated videos. One thing to consider is the sound if you’re looking to upload your own videos. Aside from choosing a sound you like, you’ll want to ensure your video is not too quiet or loud. It’s especially important if you’re talking in your video and want your viewers to hear what you’re saying. Here’s how to change the music volume on TikTok.

To change the volume of music on TikTok:

  1. Launch the TikTok app on your device.
  2. Tap on the plus button and record a new TikTok video.
  3. Tap the checkmark and then tap on Add Sound at the top of the video.
  4. Select the song you want to add and adjust the music volume by tapping on the volume button and using the slider next to ‘Added sound.’

Using this method, you can tweak the volume of both your original video recording and the sound you added to it. If you’re speaking in your video, it might be a good idea to lower the music volume a bit so viewers can hear your voice.
