TikTok is a treasure trove of bite-sized videos. And you may even have shared some TikTok videos with friends. But what if you’d like to download TikTok videos to watch later? The good news is that it’s easy! There are two ways to do this, and the process is different depending on your operating system. We will share how both methods work so you can choose which one works best for your computer or device!
First, let’s start with the way that works for Windows or Mac. Go to this website: TikTok Downloader and scroll down until you see an orange button labeled “Download.” Click on it! You may get a pop up window asking if you want to open or save the file. Choose whichever is best for your device. If you’re using a laptop running Windows, choosing Save will lead to downloading right onto your computer’s desktop. On a MacBook Pro using macOS, choose Open as it will automatically download into iTunes so there are no steps needed after opening the file.
Now, the way to do it on Android or iOS: First download these two apps if you haven’t already. They’re both free in their respective app stores! One of them just needs a click and wait for the installation process to finish while the other might need some permissions granted before installing. Once they are installed, go into TikTok Downloader as it is called by us less tech savvy people and tap on this orange button labeled Download. Again, choose whether you want to save or open when prompted with your options.
In both cases, the TikTok video will be saved to your phone’s camera roll. Now you can watch it any time by accessing your device and opening up that app!
If you want to watch the video on your desktop or laptop, it’s best for Mac OSX users who are using iTunes. On Windows, a user can download and open up TikTok in another app like VLC Media Player by selecting Open File when prompted with options as well. And don’t worry if you’re not sure how to do anything else! We have links below for Apple products and Android devices so start there first! In the end, you should now be able to watch all of your favorite TikTok videos. It’s a good thing that we love YouTube too or else this post would have been much shorter!
