TikTok on Roku

The social networking application known as TikTok allows users to watch and share short videos. It is a widely used program that exposes people worldwide to their latent abilities and hidden talents. The app includes video content covering sports, dance, acting, gaming, singing, food, and do-it-yourself projects. If you’re a habitual user of TikTok and want to watch videos from the app on your TV, you may do it using a streaming device like a Roku or Firestick.

No. You cannot get TikTok on Roku. If you’re eager to use TikTok on your Roku-connected TV, there are a few ways to work around the fact that it isn’t yet available on the Channel Store.

Can I Get TikTok on My TV?

Using a compatible device, you can stream videos directly from TikTok to your TV via the app. If you do not have a supported TV, then your only option is to apply the methods discussed in the previous section.

Some supported devices include:

  • Android TV
  • Chromecast with Google TV
  • Amazon Fire TV
  • Samsung Smart TV
  • LG Smart TVs (2018 models and above)

Can You Watch TikTok on Firestick?

Yes. You can watch TikTok on Firestick as of 2021. If you want to watch TikTok videos in the US or Canada, you only need an Amazon Fire TV. Thanks to a collaboration between Amazon and ByteDance (TikTok’s owner), you can download the app and start watching immediately.

To download the TikTok app on Amazon Firestick, follow the instructions below:

  • Go to the App store
  • Click on the search bar and type TikTok.
  • Select the TikTok icon.
  • Download the app, then open it.
  • Tap the Login button if you already have an account. The screen will display a code; you can enter this code via text message or scan the QR code.

How To Use TikTok on Firestick

Say “Alexa, open TikTok” to your smart TV if you have the app installed and an Echo device in the house. The application will launch on your TV, and you can then ask Alexa to play, pause, or skip videos currently playing on the TV.

If you do not have an Alexa-integrated device, you may still use the Alexa Voice Remote. Or you can still use the traditional method (using a remote control) to control the videos playing on your device.

The app will give you access to most of its features on your television, just as it does on your mobile device. Similarly, you will still be able to “favorite” videos, toggle between the feed and the videos you are already following, and discover new exciting videos.

No video creation tools are available on Fire TV, so you can’t make your TikTok videos and share them with the world.
