How to do Voice Over on TikTok - Voquent

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know boosting your content by learning how to do voice over on TikTok is a game-changer.

The numbers don’t lie, with a growing audience of more than a billion users, TikTok is one of today’s social media giants – so, if you don’t know how to do voice over on TikTok, we’re here to help.

Short-form videos designed to capture attention are the growing norm, with consumer attention spans having dropped from 2.5 minutes to 45 seconds, it’s even more important that your content stands out.

That’s where voice over comes in.

 

How to use TikTok’s Voice Over Tool

Here’s how to add TikTok voice over to your content:

Record or upload your video – before you get into the voiceover, you’re going to need a video to layer it on top of. To do this, open the app, then press the ‘+’ sign at the bottom of your screen.

Record your voice over – once you’ve uploaded or recorded your video, you’ll see a menu on the right-hand side with some options. Click the ‘audio editing’ microphone icon and press record on the next screen.

Edit your voice over – now that you’ve recorded your voice over, click ‘save’ in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. You’ll be able to edit your voice over by clicking on ‘sounds’ at the bottom-left of your screen.

Post your video – once you’re happy with your video and voice over you can publish it.

TikTok aside, voice over is a powerful tool for anyone that wants to reach consumers and target audiences. Some benefits of adding voice over to your TikTok include:

Do your research – TikTok trends come and go in the blink of an eye, so it’s important you figure out what will work for your content and the goal you have in mind.
