How To Go Live On Macbook Tiktok

While TikTok is primarily a mobile application, it’s possible to create and go live on TikTok from your MacBook! In this blog post, we will guide you through the steps to do just that.


Before we get started, there are a few prerequisites you need to meet:

  • Your account must have at least 1,000 followers.
  • You must be at least 16 years old.
  • If you’re under 18, you must be accompanied by an adult.
  • You need to have a webcam and microphone connected to your MacBook.

If you meet these criteria, you’re ready to go live on TikTok from your MacBook. Let’s proceed with the steps.

Steps to Go Live on TikTok from MacBook

Step 1: Install an Android Emulator

Since TikTok doesn’t provide a desktop version that supports live streaming, you’ll need to use an Android emulator to mimic the mobile version of the app on your MacBook. We recommend BlueStacks, a safe and reliable emulator.

Step 2: Download TikTok on BlueStacks

Once you’ve installed BlueStacks, you’ll need to sign in to your Google account, go to the Google Play Store, and download TikTok.

Step 3: Sign in to Your TikTok Account

Open the TikTok app within BlueStacks and sign in to your account. If you don’t already have an account, you can create one.

Step 4: Go Live

Once you’re signed in, you’re all set to go live. Just tap on the + button at the bottom of the screen, then select Live from the recording interface. Enter a title for your live video, then hit Go Live to start streaming!

And that’s it! You’re now broadcasting live on TikTok from your MacBook. Remember to engage with your viewers by responding to their comments and creating interactive content to keep them entertained.


Although going live on TikTok from a MacBook requires a few extra steps, it’s a great way to engage with your audience in a more comfortable, hands-free setting. We hope this guide was helpful! Keep creating, and happy TikToking!
