Unfortunately, TikTok is not available as a native app on Roku devices at this time. However, there are some alternative ways to access TikTok content on your Roku device:
- Screen Mirroring: If you have an Android or Windows device, you can use the screen mirroring feature to cast TikTok content to your Roku device. To do this, make sure your Roku device and your mobile device are on the same Wi-Fi network, open the TikTok app on your mobile device, and select the screen mirroring option in your device settings. You should see your device’s screen on your TV through your Roku device.
- Cast from a Web Browser: You can also use a web browser on your Roku device, such as the Roku browser or Google Chrome, to access TikTok content on the TikTok website. To do this, open the web browser on your Roku device, go to the TikTok website, and select the video you want to watch. Then, click on the Cast icon in the video player and select your Roku device to cast the video on your TV.
It’s important to note that these methods may not provide the same level of functionality as a native app, and may be subject to some limitations or issues. Additionally, using TikTok on a TV screen may not be the optimal experience for all users, as the app is designed primarily for mobile devices.

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.
