Duetting TikTok is one of the best features of the platform. In fact, we love it so much that we decided to dedicate a whole article talking about it and explaining from what it is to how to use it to get more views and likes.

You could literally take any video that is eligible for dueting and duet the crap out of it. Although, it is possible to turn off the duet feature.

What is dueting on TikTok
Dueting on TikTok is a feature that lets you make reactive videos on top of the videos of other people.
You can react, watch, or do something together with the video. You must already know that if you have watched TikTok just for a while.
Because some of the users on the platform have been coming with incredible and creative ways to use dueting.
You can even duet with a video that is already being duetted with. What that means is that you can react to a react video.
That is one of the coolest features of the platform and one that is not utilized often. Because dueting itself does the job if you are looking to get more views and likes.
How to duet on TikTok (on Apple & on Android)

If you want to know to control this, let us quickly talk about this too
So when you are about to post a new clip onto the platform. Just before the last step when you should click on the post button, you will have three toggles.

How to duet on TikTok with a video from gallery
The quickest answer to this question will be no if this was all you needed to hear.
But we know that you probably won’t take no for an answer and will be looking to find ways to make duets with a video that is already saved on your device.
This is fact is possible, but is a bit tricky and takes a few steps to go through before you can actually post it.
We cannot go over each step, but will explain to you the idea behind it so that you can do what you intend to do; duet on TikTok with a video from the gallery.
You will need to download the video you want to duet with. There is a small caveat here.
You remember that dueting was a feature that is not possible for everyone unless the owner made it so on purpose.
The same logic applies to downloads as well. On TikTok, you have control over the possibility of the downloads. If you set the toggle to no, then your videos won’t be downloaded.
Considering you found a video that fits all the prerequisites, we can go and explain how to duet on TikTok with a video from the gallery.
To duet with a gallery video
Once you downloaded the video, you will need to go to your TikTok and go to the post screen without really posting, and click to add another video and choose the one from your gallery.
Organize them side by side so that it looks like it was duetted. But what you are really doing is just cheating the viewers to think it was a duet.
This is why you should add the user after the hashtags and let them know that you are dueting if you think it is necessary.
Does TikTok notify when you duet ?
Now at this point, there may arise a question if TikTok notifies the user of your duet?
The answer is yes, the TikTok usually notifies the account being duetted with.
There are some ways to avoid this if you don’t feel like letting the user know about this. But that depends on how much you don’t want them to know about this.
Because the only way to stay away from letting the user know is by blocking them right after you duet.
As a matter of fact, when you duet, if TikTok notifies the user, this is not a big deal. As it will help them too.
We will talk a little bit about why you should consider dueting and making that a habit to grow your account faster.
Why to duet on TikTok
Dueting on TikTok is one of the best ways to get more followers, views, and likes. When you react to something that is already popular, your clip is also likely to become popular.
But this works both ways. For example, if you react to something that wasn’t so popular, but you were so creative that your reaction went viral.
Then the original account will get some benefits from your duets too. So, when you are dueting, don’t think about it like you are leeching something off of the user.
But think of it a different way as if you are adding more value to the video. The more value you add, the more your duet is likely to get more views and likes.
When you go viral or become popular, you will have the chance to be featured on the official site of TikTok as one of the creators to duet with.
Now that is a goal worth chasing.
Dueting is a feature that only belongs to TikTok. There is no other social media platform that allows you to react to other peoples’ posts.
This brought a great deal of opportunity for the world and for those wishing to become influencers.
If you have not hopped on a train with the dueting thing yet. It is still not too late, and you should get on board as soon as possible.
