TikTok videos are fun. But what makes them even more fun is when users in the community collaborate with each other and add interesting stuff to each other’s videos. You may already have seen such videos floating around. If the addition comes at the end of the video, it is called a stitch. But if the two videos from different posters are playing side by side, it is called a duet. In this article, we bring you 2 ways to do a duet on TikTok on Android or iOS.

Step 1: Launch the TikTok app on your smartphone.
Step 2: Open the video your want to duet with.
Step 3: Hit the share icon on the right side of the screen.
