How to See Duets on TikTok

Dueting is one of the most fun exploits to partake in on TikTok. It is as much fun, if not more, to watch others take on Duet challenges posted by influential TikTokers.

Suppose you stumble across a particularly impressive original video and wish to watch all the duets made with it on TikTok, is there a way to do it? Let’s find out!

How to view all the duets of someone’s videos

It is only natural to want to watch all popular duets made on a video by a popular creator. But TikTok doesn’t have any search feature to dredge up all the duets with a specific video posted by a specific creator. However, there is a way to watch the popular duets with a specific creator. Here is how it is done.

Launch TikTok app and tap Home.


Tap the magnifying glass icon on the top right corner of the page to use the Explore feature.

In the search box at the top enter — duet @<username> or #duet @<username>. The order doesn’t really matter as long as you bring together the keywords “due”t and the “username” of the original creator.

For instance, if you want to look up the duets with the user “themermaidscale”. So, we enter the keywords duet @themermaidscale in the search box at the top of the page and tap Search.

The results will show on the basis of the popularity of the duet among the TikTok viewers. But expect no classification on the basis of the video with which users have chosen to duet. So, if you want to find all duets with a specific video by the creator, you will probably end up a tad disappointed.

Below are the results for #duets @themermaidscale, which are slightly different from the search results shown for a search without the hashtag symbol.

Tap Videos on the navigation panel at the top to view more results and scroll down to weed through the video results.

How to view all the duets with you on TikTok

Launch TikTok app and tap Home.

Tap the magnifying glass icon on the top right corner of the page to use the Explore feature.

In the search box at the top enter — duet @<your username> or #duet @<your username>. The order doesn’t really matter as long as you bring together the keywords duet and the username of the original creator. In this case, since you want to find who has made duets with you, use your username. 

For instance, we enter #duet @baobeibonita or duet @baobeibonita in the search box at the top of the page and hit Search.

All the popular TikTok duets made with your original video will show up in the results. You must note that your own duets with others don’t show up in the search results, so, if you aren’t popular enough, the top results would mostly contain pathways to your own user profile or content closely related to the keywords in your username.

Similarly, the original video (that you uploaded) must qualify as viral content popular among viewers to qualify to appear in the results.

FAQs

What is a duet on TikTok?

Duet is an interactive feature on TikTok that allows you to create content in parallel with an original video uploaded by a creator on TikTok. Of course, you can also upload a video and allow others to duet with you! It works just the same.

When you duet with someone, their video appears on split-screen along with yours. When the original video ends, your video also cuts off automatically. So, in all essence, a duet on TikTok allows you to work in tandem with the existing (original) video and add to it without taking anything away from it.

Duets are not to be confused with the Stitch feature on TikTok which lets you take 5 seconds off of someone’s else video and use it as the preface or intro of your video.

Can you find all the duets with a particular video on TikTok?

Sadly, TikTok devs haven’t really considered the interest of us, curious viewers, to devour all duets made with a particular video on TikTok. Your only workaround to search for duets with a particular user is to use the duet hashtag with the username name in the TikTok search. 

But this only shows you the hottest duets made with the videos uploaded by the username you look up and doesn’t list results by criteria like video or sound used.

In short, if you wish to find the duet with a particular sound, you might have to ferret it out from the results by manual search. Scroll up and good luck?

However, you can indeed look up duets by trends or keywords. For instance, if you want to watch popular duets on the song Dandelions on TikTok, just enter duet Dandelions in the search box.

Launch TikTok app and tap Home.


Tap the magnifying glass icon on the top right corner of the page to use the Explore feature.

In the search box at the top of the page, enter duet Dandelions (enter any trending duet challenge by keyword) and hit Search.

The results page will show a list of duet challenges posted by influencers on the app.

When you duet someone on TikTok, will they know?

No, the original poster won’t get notified when someone duets with their video. Imagine how cumbersome it’d be for creators who have a massive follower base that actually collabs with their content all the time?

But even if you as a creator would want to get notified if someone duets with you, TikTok doesn’t have any provision for it, at present.

So, if you duet with someone or someone duets with your video, the creator of the original video won’t get any new duet alerts from the TikTok system informing them of the event.

You can change the privacy settings for all or individual videos under Settings and privacy on your profile or privacy settings on your videos. Likewise, if you come across a video without the Duet feature on it, it is because the original poster has disabled it.
