Fire TV & FireStick, How To, Kodi Fire TV News, Smartphones

Being used by more than 1 billion people all over the world, TikTok is currently one of the most popular apps in the mobile and app industry.

But did you know that you can install TikTok on Firestick just like you’re using it on your smartphone? Yes – you can fire up your HDTV and use TikTok on your Firestick to enjoy videos with your friends and family!

Fortunately, the possibility to download Android apps is among the finest features of the Firestick. So, TikTok can also be installed on Firestick in the same way.

As the Firestick is based on Fire OS, which is extremely close to Android OS, you can easily use an APK file to download any Android application on your Firestick device.

You can also record clips or videos on the TikTok app and post them on your account if your Firestick paired TV contains a front-facing camera.

However, if your Firestick lacks a front-facing camera, you can only use it to watch TikTok clips or videos from around the world.

In this friendly guide, you will get to know the 4 best methods to install and watch TikTok on your Firestick device.

The official TikTok app for Firestick is barely usable. So what we do instead is install a much better app on your Firestick called TikTok Lite APK.

So without further ado, let’s get started!

Overview and Features of TikTok on the Firestick

As TikTok can now be easily installed on Firestick, everybody can use all features of this highly famous app on all the Firestick devices.

Going across clips or videos is quite simple and works nearly identically to how this app functions on an Android or iOS device.

People can also easily log in to their TikTok profiles to see all of their top picks and interesting videos.

Setting Up your Firestick Device for Downloading TikTok App

So, in order to download an app on your Firestick that is not listed in the Amazon App Store, we have to turn on the enable applications from unknown sources in the Firestick’s settings.

It’s highly crucial to turn this on or else you would be unable to download the TikTok app APK on your Firestick device.

Amazon disables this feature as standard, therefore we need to activate it directly. If you have no idea about doing it? Don’t fret, just see the following steps:

  1. Navigate into your Firestick’s settings and select the “My Fire TV” option.
  2. Next, you have to choose the “Developer” option.
  3. To turn it on, go to the Settings > Apps > Unknown sources.
  4. Following that, it will display a type of warning notification; just dismiss it and hit the “OK” button.

Now that you have enabled this setting, you’re completely ready to download the TikTok app on your Firestick device.

Here’s Why You Need to Use a Reliable VPN on Your Firestick

VPN is software that protects your access to the internet and transmits it via an external host.

For instance, TikTok has been blocked in a wide range of locations. So, a reliable VPN is required if you wish to access a service that is not allowed in your location.

It also prohibits others from tracing your regular internet activity. As a result, your activities on the internet will be kept hidden, and neither your ISP nor the authorities will be able to detect them.

  10. Press Open. You’re almost done!
  11. Follow the steps below to enable your firestick to navigate around TikTok using a Bluetooth mouse or virtual mouse app (like Cetusplay).

    CetusPlay Select Firestick
  4. On your firestick, press “always allow”, then Yes/ok/allow to allow your smartphone to connect to the Firestick.

The “More on TikTok” official app for Firestick is currently lacking but is easiest to install

Get the More on TikTok Firestick app in the Amazon app store on your firestick. Hold down the voice button and say TikTok

Method 4: Cast smartphone screen to Firestick using FREE AirScreen APK

To do this, while using TikTok on your smartphone, cast your smartphone screen to firestick using AirScreen APK (found in my Filelinked code 66575558)

AirScreen on Firestick
Install AirScreen (lets you share the entire iPhone / Android screen – not just single videos!)

Note about TikTok Lite APK versions in Aptoide TV:

Version 1.7.6 seems to be the most stable, most usable, most complete version of TikTok for firestick

In contrast, version 1.3.3 (also in Aptoide tv) is the GO version of TikTok Lite, which works fine (and is faster and more lightweight than the newer version). BUT version 1.3.3 is unable to upload videos.

  • So use version 1.7.6 (first occurrence of TikTok Lite in Aptoide tv) for a more complete TikTok on firestick experience.

Or use 1.3.3 for a faster, more lightweight, less jittery TikTok for firestick.

Notes on Installing Tiktok for Firestick

You can try using Downloader, Apps2Fire side loader, or my Filelinked code below, but I received the firestick error message “application not installed. This application is not compatible with your fire TV” with the downloader method and Filelinked.

Using Sideloader, I received an error message about not being able to extract some libraries.

Apps2Fire sideloader for installing Kodi on Firestick
Sideloading didn’t work for me on Firestick, but it may work for you.

Therefore, the only working install method I found was Aptoide TV.

So here’s the Filelinked code and Downloader address (“URL”) for the Tiktok Lite APK:

Filelinked code: 66575558

To get the TikTok APK for Firestick, use Filelinked code 66575558 OR enter tvcola.com/tiktokapk into Downloader.

But be warned – I was unable to successfully use Filelinked or Downloader to install TikTok on Firestick. The only working method I found was using Aptoide TV.
