Do you know what I love about Tik Tok? A lot of things! I’m a fanatic of the app. I have never understood why other apps like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter haven’t taken its lead. Why do they have so many security cordons? Why do they make it so difficult to download and save videos? Because if like Tiktok, they make it easy, their users would be over-the-moon. Even in this Wifi and 4g data-driven age, not everyone has access to the Internet all the time. So, it’s only wiser to let users videos they like offline, and increase their convenience. TikTok agrees with me and lets you download videos from its platform with ease.
Downloading Tik Tok Videos From the App
We will list two methods you can use to save your TikTok videos directly to your gallery. The first step is the easiest one and takes only a few clicks. The second one though has the added advantage of reviewing the video you’re saving. Here’s a step by step breakdown of the both.
Note: None of these methods require a third-party-app, and can be performed directly from the TikTok app.
Method 1: Press and Hold
1. Open the TikTok app.
2. Go to the Video you wish to save.
3. Press and hold in the center of the video.
Tap Save Video.
If you’re an Android user, you can find the saved video in the Google photos stock app. In the case of iOS, the saved video goes directly to the iOS photos app.
Method 2: Use the Share Button
1. Go to your Intended Video.
2. Press the Share Button on its right.
3. Underneath the options to share to Instagram and Snapchat and other social media accounts, tap the Save Video button.

In that case, you don’t have any option other than to download it through a third-party app.
