The global phenomenon of dubsmashes and musical.ly videos is undeniable. Despite of being around for many years now, these short videos you could lip sync to have managed to retain their appeal. Although once dubsmash was the app that broke the internet, musical.ly is now the place that’s trending in this category. With its larger community, better features and a whole lot of fun, musical.ly is the app of the millennials. Recently musical.ly has transformed into the TikTok app providing a larger than even community base.
If you’re someone who enjoy lip syncing to their favorite songs, TikTok might be the app for you. While some critics find the whole concept of these short videos cringe-worthy, fans of the platform are passionate and dedicated to producing trending content. TikTok supports a huge range of features for users to enjoy and to make their experience in the app more diverse and colorful. Along with making their own videos on the app, you can discover and view millions of other videos that have been posted on public profiles in the app. These video recommendations are tailored to your preferences. Based on what you watch and what you like or share, the TikTok app produces an algorithm to bring you the best content that you might find interesting.
There’s also a section on the app where you can watch the most popular and trending videos currently. This is usually a trend or a viral challenge that is adapted by users of the TikTok app. The trends are fun and convincing enough for you to try your shot at it as well. If your video is good enough, it could be featured on the main homepage of other TikTok users as well. Of course, your profile has to public for that.
Speaking of which, TikTok maintains a decent level of privacy for those who don’t want to share their content to other random users in the app. Perhaps all they use TikTok for is to make videos, download them to their phone and share them with friends they actually know. If you’re one of those people, you can always keep your account private so that no random user can view your content unless you approve their follow request.
The actual video that you can make on the TikTok app is basically a mix of dubsmash and Vine. These short videos you can lip sync to can feature songs and famous dialogues from TV shows and movies. Plus you can make your videos much cooler by pressing the pause button on them anywhere you like and resuming them whenever you want. This means you can get creative with your videos by changing your outfits or even your entire settings in one single video you put out.
You can also turn things more creative by throwing in some beauty filter affects and adding emoji stickers, 3D masks and face filters. Not all of these features are available for a newbie though; some have to be unlocked while the best filters and masks may need to be purchased with real money.
What’s more, you can post-edit your videos, trim, cut and merge them. When it comes to the actual content, unfortunately it isn’t really strictly regulated. Parents should be cautious to what their child is exposed to on the TikTok app. While the outlook of the app seems all fun and games, you can actually find some pretty sketchy and provocative videos in there.
