Most likely, you are intrigued by how they can string multiple videos together into a single video, and you'll like to do the same. 

Or you are a new user on the platform and have got little experience on how to get around stringing videos together. Whatever your unique situation is, this article will equip you with the simple guide on how to string multiple videos together into a single video

This information will add to your excellent user experience on this platform. Please remember that the TikTok app only uploads video content of up to 60 seconds long. So the multiple videos you intend on uploading when merged will not exceed this time limit.

How To String Tiktok Videos Together

Two options are available. You could either do so-
  • Directly from the TikTok app
  • Making use of a third-party app

Directly on TikTok

Provided you've installed the TikTok app on your mobile device, launch it open. Then tap the menu bar, the Add button that's having a plus sign, centralised at the bottom section of your display screen. The camera screen will be displayed showing three options of "Effects", "Video" or "Upload".

Tap the "Upload" button option at the bottom right section of your camera screen, and you'll be taken directly to your phone's gallery that contains the videos you wish to merge. Look closely, and you'll find a "Select Multiple" option located at the bottom left corner of your device's gallery. Hit this button and select all the multiple videos you want to combine. Once you're satisfied, tap on the "Next" button to move on.

The TikTok app strings them together in the order you have selected them and allows you to trim them to the 60 seconds length required and to your desired taste. There's also the option to synchronise sound to the video to provide more fun. Once you're satisfied syncing music across media and adjusting it to begin, fade and end where you intend, hit the "Next" button.

You'll move to the preview screen section of your editing where you see the work you've done and may decide to add more sound, effects, stickers and text. When you're satisfied with the output, tap on the "Next" button to move to the Post screen section. Then post your favourite TikTok video by hitting on the "Post" button found at the bottom part of your screen to share.

The slight disadvantage of using the TikTok app to string videos together is that you're not able to trim sections within each of the video clip you are merging. It allows you to cut only the beginning and ending parts. This degree of trimming might not satisfy the need of some persons. Here is where the second option of stringing videos come handy.
