How to scroll through random lives on TikTok

Here are the steps you need to follow to scroll through random lives on TikTok.

1. Open TikTok

Firstly, you need to open the TikTok app.

Secondly, you need to log in or switch to the account that you want to watch the lives from.

When you join and start watching a TikTok live stream, the host will be notified you have started watching, and if you make any comments, your username and profile will be displayed as well.

2. Tap on Home on TikTok

Next, you need to tap on “Home” in the bottom navigation bar on TikTok.

The icon for the Home button looks like a house.

This will take you to your TikTok For You page or your Following page.

3. Tap on Live

Now, you need to look in the top left of TikTok for the “Live” button.

The button looks like a square TV with antennas on top of it with “Live” going through the middle of it.

This button will be on the For You and the Following page.

You need to tap on it.

4. Scroll through the lives

Once you have tapped the Live button, you will be taken to a random live stream.

Then, you can swipe up on your screen like you usually would to watch the next video, and then the next live stream will be shown to you.

So, place your finger on your phone screen and swipe your finger quite quickly upwards to get to the next video.

If the video moves halfway up your screen and moves back down, this means you didn’t swipe your finger upwards for long enough.

Also, if you don’t like the live you are currently watching, then you can swipe up again to get taken to the next live.

But, if you want to watch a live that you saw earlier, then you can swipe down to watch lives you’ve already seen and swiped past.

How to find popular lives on TikTok

When you are scrolling through the Lives on TikTok, you may find that a lot of them don’t have many viewers and are quite boring.

The best way to find more popular lives is to scroll through the TikTok FYP.

Every so often TikTok will show you a live stream, but the lives shown on the FYP tend to have more viewers and likes.

If you didn’t know, likes on a TikTok live are where viewers have tapped the screen and liked it.

But, unlike a normal TikTok video where a viewer can like the video once, on lives, you can like the live as many times as you would like.

How to leave lives on TikTok

You may find that you no longer want to watch lives on TikTok and you want to get back to your FYP or Following page.

In order to stop watching a TikTok live, all you need to do is tap on the cross, which looks like an “X” in the top right of TikTok.
