How to duet video like on TikTok

Quite often, the second one repeats the first, but it may also contain other content: a reaction, a tutorial, "behind the scenes", etc.

The TikTok app has an inbuilt function for creating Duets. You can find more information on it by checking out this official manual on how to duet on TikTok. But what if you want to post such a video on other social media or want to record this duet clip now and post it later?

Then you can create a Duet in a video editor. Luckily, we have just the right one for you. Not only is it free and user-friendly, but it also works online and doesn't take your phone's or laptop's memory.

So, ready, steady, go!

  1. Upload two videos to the tool

    Make sure you've saved both videos to the same folder on your device, Google Drive, or Dropbox. Then open Clideo’s Video Editor in any browser, click the “Get started” button, then hit "Upload" to select both videos.
