Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Name the two biggest social media platforms. What comes in your mind? Is it Tiktok? Facebook? Instagram? Twitter? I can guarantee these are probably the names that run in everyone’s lips right now. Especially, TikTok and Instagram. After all, these two social media platforms are taking the world by storm. While Instagram is a social networking platform, TikTok is mainly focused on lip-syncing, dancing, acting, pranking, and other fun stuff. Most of the time, these apps are compared with each other. Apart from comparisons, I’ve also noticed the Explore page of Instagram filled with TikTok videos. But, how do people share TikTok videos on Instagram? And, why do they do that?

Why Share TikTok Videos on Instagram?

TikTok videos are so much fun to watch. Once you start watching the videos there’s no turning back. Don’t you agree? TikTok is a major source of entertainment.

I’ll be sharing the steps to share TikTok videos not only on Instagram but on its stories as well. Now, let’s get right into it. It’s time to shine now!

But if your tiktok video is under review then you won’t be able to see the video until you solve it. So, if you don’t know why your TikTok videos under review then, go to the link to solve your problem before sharing it on Instagram.

Post a Full TikTok Video on Instagram

Of course, you need to have a TikTok account to share videos on your Instagram account. Whether you want to upload a TikTok video on Instagram or just post it on your story, the steps are quite simple. Based on whose TikTok videos you want to share, there are two different ways to do so.

Share Public TikTok Videos on Instagram

As the name suggests, public TikTok videos are seen by everyone on TikTok. But, how to bring those marvelous feats into the world of Instagram? Follow the following steps to share public TikTok videos on Instagram.

  • Tap on your TikTok app and click the ”+” icon at the bottom of your mobile screen.
  • Hold the record button to film a new video or select Upload a video option to choose any TikTok video that you’ve saved on your phone.
  • Once you’ve uploaded, select Next.
  • Edit the video as you want and again select Next.
  • Tap on the right arrow beside Who can see this video to select the Public option.
  • Select the Instagram icon at the bottom of the screen.
  • Tap on Post.
  • After a few seconds, the video gets posted on TikTok and will further take you to your Instagram account. Tap either on Story or Feed option.
  • Edit the video beautifully and Share it with your followers.

Share Private TikTok Videos on Instagram

As a TikToker, you might know what a private TikTok video is. You might also have some videos saved in your TikTok account. Private TikTok videos are visible to the creator only. The private videos are saved in such a way that your followers won’t be able to access them. It’s like a draft for your TikTok. And, here’s how to share a private TikTok video on Instagram without actually posting it on TikTok:

  • Tap on your TikTok app and click the ”+” icon at the bottom of your mobile screen.
  • Select Upload a video option to choose any private TikTok video that you’ve saved on your phone.
  • Once you’ve uploaded, select Next.
  • Edit the video as you want and again select Next.
  • Tap on the right arrow beside Who can see this video to select the Private option.
  • Select the Post button.
  • Tap on Me and choose the private video that you’ve posted just now.
  • On the right side of the screen, click on the three dots.
  • Select the Download video option under the three dots.
  • Now, open your Instagram app and select the ”+” icon at the bottom.
  • Tap on the video downloaded from TikTok and select Next.
  • Edit the video, write captions, and Share it away!

The One-Click Alternative

Too lazy to follow the steps? Here’s a one-click alternative for you. However, remember that this shortcut has its limitation. TikTok has a built-in feature that automatically allows you to share your TikTok videos on Instagram. All you have to do is tap on the Share arrow in the app and select the Instagram icon. Select the Share it on your Feed option and you’re done!

Since there is no shortcut to perfection, this tip may not allow you to post a full video on your Instagram. Also, Instagram will crop the original frame size 9:16 to its own desired size i.e. 4:5.

Upload TikTok Videos on Your Instagram Stories

When it comes to uploading a public TikTok video on your Instagram story, you get to choose among the Story or Feed option right after posting the video on TikTok. Just select the Story option and there the video will get uploaded on your Instagram story.

However, the steps to share private TikTok videos are slightly different than the public ones. So, after you’ve downloaded the private TikTok video, just post it on your Instagram story like you normally do.

  • Tap on the Instagram app and sign in to your account.
  • Click on the camera on the upper left.
  • Once the Instagram stories screen occurs, swipe up to open the gallery.
  • Choose the downloaded private TikTok video from the gallery.
  • Edit and trim the video as you want.
  • Select Next.
  • Tap on Your Story and there you’ll have your video posted on your Instagram story.

Link Your TikTok With Instagram

To make it super easy for you, here’s a tip: link your TikTok and Instagram accounts. This will make your sharing process so much faster. You’ll be free from closing and opening both the apps time and again to share the video. The best part is you don’t have to save videos from TikTok and then upload them over and over again. No need to exit the TikTok app as the link will automatically send the videos to your Instagram stories. So convenient, right? To link your TikTok account with your Instagram account:

  • Go to your TikTok account. Under I, tap on the lower right corner of your mobile screen to access your profile.
  • Select the Edit Profile option.
  • Scroll down to the bottom of your profile and select the Add Instagram to your profile option.
  • As suggested by the pop-up notification, log in to your Instagram account.
  • Follow all the instructions to complete the process.

Unlink Your Accounts

Did you regret your decision of linking your TikTok account with your Instagram account? No worries. You can always unlink your accounts whenever and wherever you want.

  • Open your TikTok account. Under I, tap on the lower right corner of your mobile screen to access your profile.
  • Select the Edit Profile option.
  • Tap on the Instagram icon. This will automatically unlink your Instagram account.
  • Follow the instruction given in the pop-up notification and your Instagram account gets deleted.

Share Your Smile

You laugh, you entertain yourself watching those 15 seconds or 1 minute TikTok videos. Smile is contagious and so are TikTok videos. Appreciate those contents of TikTokers and share them on your Instagram account. You may be the reason to bring a smile on someone’s face. Like I mentioned earlier sharing TikTok videos on Instagram can be very beneficial for yourself. So, try your luck and take your chances. Who knows you might become a star overnight?
