Do you want to auto-scroll on TikTok? If so, this guide will show you exactly how.
Auto-scrolling on TikTok means you can sit back and relax and not worry about having to swipe to the next video. You can also configure it so you can scroll back to a previous video, or pause a video as well.
Also, we have included the steps for setting up auto-scroll on TikTok for both iOS and Android devices.
Lets get right in to this!
How To Auto Scroll On TikTok On iPhone
Here are the steps to auto-scroll on TikTok on an iPhone.
1. Open your settings
Firstly, you need to open your iPhone’s or iOS device’s settings.
By default, the settings app will be on your home screen. If you can’t find it, you can always search for it.
2. Scroll down to “Accessibility”
Secondly, you need to scroll down the settings menu until you see the option for “Accessibility”.
If you cannot see the option, scroll to the top of the settings menu and you can search for “Accessiblity” there.
Once you see “Accessibility”, tap on it.
3. Navigate to the “Voice Control” settings
Next, you need to look for the section titled “Physical And Motor”.
In this section, you will see an option for “Voice Control” and you need to tap on it.
4. Enable Voice Control
Now, you need to enable Voice Control by tapping on the switch button, which is at the top of the page.
Once you have enabled it, you need to tap on “Customize Commands”.
5. Customize your commands
On this page, we can create commands which can be activated using our voice.
For example, we could say “Next” and this would trigger a command.
Therefore, we could create a command for when we say “Next”, this triggers a swiping gesture which will swipe to the next TikTok video.
Now, you need to tap on “Create New Command”.
Then, you need to enter a speakable phrase. We used “Next”, but you can use anything you would like.
You now need to configure the action. Tap on “Action”.
Next, you need to tap on “Run Custom Gesture”.
You need to swipe on your screen as you would when scrolling on TikTok.
Make sure you swipe fast enough as otherwise it won’t work.
If you aren’t happy with the gesture you recorded, tap on “Stop” in the bottom right, and then the button will change to “Record” in the same location and you need to tap on it. You can then re-record your gesture.
Once you have recorded a gesture you are happy with, tap on “Save” in the top right.
This will take you back to the “Action” page and you will need to tap on the back button.
Then, this will take you back to the “New Command” page.
This is optional, but you can make this command only work on TikTok if you would like.
Tap on “Application”, which by default, will be set to “Any”. Scroll to TikTok and tap on it.
Now, you can tap on the back button and tap on “Save”.
You can set up more commands if you would like as well. For example, you can create a command for pausing a TikTok video or scrolling to a previous video.
For now, we will use the “Next” command we created.
6. Open up the TikTok app
You now need to open up the TikTok app and start watching videos.
When you want to move to the next video, say the phrase you configured. In our case, it was “Next”.
Hopefully, your phone will then scroll to the next video.
If nothing happens, this may mean you didn’t say the phrase loud enough. Also, make sure you saved all of your settings as well.
If the video half-swipes up and then stops, this means the swipe you recorded wasn’t good enough to swipe to the next video. To fix this, go back to your Voice Control settings and you can edit the command and re-record the gesture.
You can follow the previous steps to do this.
How To Auto Scroll On TikTok On Android
Here are the steps to set up auto-scroll on TikTok on an Android.
1. Install Google Voice Access
Firstly, you need to download and install the Google Voice Access app from the Play Store.
2. Open your device settings and navigate to “Accessibility”
Secondly, you need to open your device settings and then navigate to the “Accessibility” settings.
Once you are in the Accessibility settings, you need to tap on the Voice Access app.
When prompted, you will need to give permission to the app to use your microphone.
3. Configure and customize your commands
Next, you need to add a new command.
You can name the phrase whatever you would like, but you will have to say the phrase in order to activate it. We used “Next”.
You will need to record yourself swiping on your screen. Make sure you do it fast enough, otherwise TikTok will not move on to the next video.
Also, there may be a swipe motion already recorded, but otherwise you can just record the gesture yourself.
Make sure you save the command.
You will notice a blue floating icon on your screen. When you tap on it, this will activate Voice Access.
You can create and configure more commands as well. For example, you can create commands which will pause TikTok videos, or swipe back to a previous video as well.
4. Open up TikTok
Now, you need to open up TikTok and tap on the floating blue icon, which will activate Voice Access.
Then, you can say the phrase you configured and hopefully, your device will do the swiping motion you configured and the next video will be shown.
If nothing happens, this may mean your device didn’t hear you. So, say the phrase louder or lower your devices volume. Alternatively, it may mean you didn’t save all the settings, so go back through the steps to see if you missed anything.
If your device does a half-swipe, but still stays on the original video, this means that the gesture you recorded wasn’t fast enough or in the right direction. So, you should re-record it and see if that works.
Now you know how to auto-swipe on TikTok!
It’s a great feature that can be easily utilized to make your life easier.
We hope we have solved any problems you may have with configuring the commands as well.
