How to go live on TikTok

Going live on social media platforms is a fantastic way to engage with fans online. Unfortunately, livestreaming on TikTok is not available to everyone.

You must hit TikTok’s requirements to go live. You must have at least 1,000 followers and be over 16 years old. If you are over 18, viewers can even send you ‘virtual gifts’, that can be exchanged for real cash.
