Part 3: FAQs about TikTok Effects [Bonus Tips!]

1. How do I get the Siri Voice Effect on TikTok?

You may have heard the Siri voice reading text on people's TikTok videos, and you are wondering how you can do the same. Here is how to get the Siri voice effect on TikTok: first, film your video and upload it. Type a text on the video and select the text. You will see the "Text-to-Speech" option; choose this option. Automatically, Siri's voice will read out the text you have added to the video. Be careful to ensure that your video is not shorter than the time it takes for the voice effect to read your text.

Now you can continue your editing and then post or save, as the case may be.

2. Why is the TikTok Voice Effect not working?

If you are struggling with the voice effects on TikTok could be due to several reasons, all of which can be fixed:

  • Poor Network Connection: Check that your network connection is strong. If it is not, disconnect and reconnect your Wi-Fi after some seconds. You can turn your device to Airplane mode for at least 30 seconds to refresh the internet connection when you retry.
  • Permission is not granted: Grant TikTok the permission to use your device's hardware functions and features if you did not do that upon installing the app. Go to Tiktok on your Settings and enable the "Background App Refresh and Notifications" section.
  • Free up TikTok Storage: If the cache files and data are stored upon the TikTok app, it can affect the voice effects on Tiktok. Hence, it would be preferable to use the TikTok app on your device storage and either "Offload App" for iPhone or "Clear Data" for Android.
  • Using Pre-Created Videos: You cannot use the voice effects feature on the videos you upload from your gallery or camera roll. Thus, you should create the video directly on the TikTok app or use the simple Wondershare Filmora editor to add sound effects before uploading on TikTok.
  • Outdated Phone Features: Try updating your device by checking for new updates in the "Software Update" section of your phone's general settings. That can prove very useful in enabling features like voice effects on TikTok. You can also use the TikTok app itself to fix the bugs that may be in the old version you're currently using.
