There are lots of questions related to How to get TikTok on windows 10? or How to download TikTok on a laptop on windows 10 PC? TikTok is one of the fastest-growing social media applications on Android and iOS smartphones but unfortunately, there is no dedicated TikTok app available for Windows users. In this, we will show you the easiest way to get and use TikTok on Windows PC/laptop without BlueStacks.
However, I did a lot of research about how to install TikTok on Windows 10 PC, and there are various methods for installing TikTok on Windows 10, such as BlueStacks and some other emulators. While using BlueStacks is a nice workaround for downloading and using TikTok on your computer, the downside is that BlueStacks is a strong software, and low-spec PCs can’t install it or run so sluggish that you can’t even open the Play Store.
What is TikTok?
Musical.ly was a successful short-form (15 seconds) video streaming and sharing service with over 100 million users until August 2018. The app allowed users a plethora of music and dialogue choices for which they could lip-sync and make amusing or entertaining videos.
The app was highly successful with some content developers rising to the Hall of Fame on the basis of their entertaining content on Musical.ly. Users posted Musical.ly videos on social media sites including Instagram, further driving the success of the app.
However in August 2018, the app was taken over by ByteDance, a Chinese firm, and its users migrated to Tik Tok. All material and profiles on Musical.ly are immediately migrated to the new Tik Tok app.
TikTok is a short-form video-sharing app that allows users to make and upload 15-second videos on any subject. TikTok operates a different version for the Chinese market, branded as Duyin, which has more than 300 million active monthly users. The new software logo is a mix of the Musical.ly and the Duyin logos.
