How to do lip sync in TikTok

Lip sync is one of the most popular trends in TikTok. This curious term means "synchronized lip". When we talk about lip-syncing, we mean moving our lips in synchrony with audio, usually a conversation or a song, to generate the feeling that it is us who are talking or singing. This effect is often used to create comedy videos.

TikTok has a huge song library. But it also has an impressive collection of dialogs and phrases that you can use to perform lip sync. Now that you know exactly what lip-sync is, we will tell you how to create it. The first thing you need to do is access the TikTok creation area. To do this, tap the central button on the bottom menu.
