How to save your video

If you want to use the music used in a video in your own post, or if you want to check the music later, we recommend that you save the video you are viewing.

This is because TikTok does not have a browsing history function, making it difficult to find the same video using the search function.

Therefore, by saving videos, you can prevent forgetting to look up a song you are interested in.

For example, let's save the video below.
To save a video

Play the video you want to save.
Click the arrow mark at the bottom right of the screen
Click "Save" at the bottom of the screen
Follow the above steps.
