TikTok was undoubtedly one of the most popular social media networks online but it was mainly built for the mobile operating system. PC users had no option to access the service through the browser until BlueStacks offered a workaround for the problem. Let us see how to use TikTok on a Windows PC to make your day.
Workaround to use TikTok in a browser on Windows PC
Earlier, you could open TikTok in a browser and watch videos but now that option no more exists. When you try to open the website in a browser it just refuses to load, leaving many TikTok lovers in a lurch. That said, there’s a workaround you can use to move past this problem and enjoy TikTok videos even on a PC. Follow the instructions given in the post below.
- Download and Install BlueStacks Installer on your PC.
- Use the search bar to browse for TikTok.
- Locate its Play Store page, and install it as you would with any other app on your phone.
- Find its icon on the BlueStacks home screen.
- Click the icon to launch TikTok.
- login with your account or create one to get access to all your content, feed, etc.

Open a browser on your PC and download the BlueStacks Installer. Run the installer when the download is complete, and the emulator will launch automatically.
Once the installer is up and running, use the search bar on the top right to browse for TikTok. Alternatively, you can choose the TikTok app from the Homepage directly as shown in the image above.
If the icon is not visible to you, click on the app’s portrait in the search results to go to Play Store page, and install it as you would with any other app on your phone.
Following the installation, you can find its icon on the BlueStacks home screen. Click on it to launch it.
Login with your account. If you do not have an account, create one and proceed further. This will allow you to have access to all your content, your feed, and every single feature of the mobile app, but on your computer.
You can even connect a webcam and microphone to your PC to churn out awesome content.
Can I download TikTok app for PC?
Although there’s no official version of the TikTok app available for Windows or Mac, you can get access to all the functionality of the mobile version of TikTok on a PC with the help of the Android emulator – BlueStacks.
What exactly is TikTok?
Just like Facebook and Twitter, TikTok is a social network with a simple concept. It allows users to record themselves dancing to music, lip syncing, or engaging in shenanigans alone or with friends, in clips that could last from 3 to 60 seconds. It was released in 2016 by the Chinese developer ByteDance.
That’s all there is to it!
