Some TikTok users have been complaining that TikTok sound is not working for them when recording videos. While, for others, TikTok Voice Effects are not showing on the app. On the whole, it seems like a lot of people are having trouble with the TikTok app and its audio. So, we have decided to do some research and see what is going on.
If you are one of those people experiencing issues with TikTok sound, we have a few things for you to try to fix the issue. Let's get started!
How To Fix TikTok Sound Not Working
It is frustrating when you are recording a video with a viral sound/song and it doesn't play. You can't hear the TikTok song or sound effect at all. You increase the volume, but still no luck. Don't worry, though.
If you are experiencing this problem, here are some solutions to fix it.
Try other apps
It is possible that the problem is actually with your device's speakers. To ensure that your device is fine, open your music app and try playing music. If you are able to hear the song, then it is likely that the issue is with the TikTok app.
If you have a Samsung Phone, enable Dolby Atmos
Many Samsung users have reported that enabling Dolby Atmos fixes the issue. So, if you have a Samsung phone, you might want to try turning on Dolby Atmos. To do so:
- Open the phone settings
- Navigate to Sounds and vibration > Sound quality and effects
- Enable Dolby Atmos
Update the app
TikTok may have already fixed the problem through an update. So, go to your app store and see if you have any updates pending for the TikTok app. Immediately update the app to the latest version, if available.
Clear your cache
Another thing you can try is clearing your cache. This will help clear out all the temporary files and data stored on your device. You may need to log in to your account again but this should solve the problem.
If none of the above worked, then you might want to reach out to TikTok support for help. You should let them know about the issue so they can address it as soon as possible. Hopefully, they will patch up the bug in no time.
