Using TikTok on PC with BlueStacks
The simplest and most immediate way to use TikTok on a PC involves using the program BlueStacks, free.
After installing BlueStacks on our computer, let’s start it, press the program search bar and search for the app TikTok optimized for use inside the emulator, so that it can be downloaded to the emulator. Alternatively, we can also open the Google Play Store app directly, log in with the Google account and search for the TikTok app directly from the store. After opening the TikTok app we log in as if we were from a personal phone, so as to view the videos shared by our contacts and enjoy the funny videos on the computer monitor.
If we have problems viewing TikTok videos or contents through the BlueStacks emulator, press the gear icon or menu Settings, let’s open the menu Engine and we activate OpenGL as graphics mode, making sure to allocate at least 1500 MB of RAM for the emulator to work (minimum amount required to run TikTok correctly on any phone).
BlueStacks is definitely the best Android emulator for Windows and is perfect for running TikTok; if we have problems with this program we invite you to read our guide to best android emulators for windows, so you can try TikTok on other effective emulators.
Using TikTok on PC with ApowerMirror
Another way to use TikTok on a PC involves installing the program ApowerMirror, downloadable for free from the official website.
By installing this program we will be able to use various Android applications on PC, among which TikTok, Facebook, Messenger and WhatsApp stand out. After installing the program on your computer let’s go to our phone, let’s turn on USB debugging, download the accompanying app for Android, open it and connect the phone with the USB cable to the computer, so that we can authorize USB debugging, by activating the tick Always allow from this computer and pressing on OK.
On the next screen, a warning window will appear on screen capture: put the check mark on Do not show again and press on Start now. If we have done everything correctly we will see the screen of our Android phone projected on the computer, so that we can also use TikTok on the PC.
If we want to project the screen without using the USB cable, all we have to do is open the ApowerMirror app on the phone, press the M-shaped icon, wait for the network scan (we will have to leave the PC program open in the foreground) and , as soon as the name of the app installed on the PC appears, we confirm on it to start the projection of the screen.
