Is It Possible to Directly Use TikTok Audio Into Instagram Reels?

Yes, it is possible to directly use TikTok audio into Instagram Reels with the new “Import” feature. Unfortunately, it is only available for creators and businesses. 

So, if you have a personal Instagram account, you may need some other alternative to use TikTok audio for Instagram Reels. If you are wondering how to import sounds from TikTok to Instagram for personal account users, here are two ways:

1. Repost TikTok to Instagram Reels (With Watermark)

Make a TikTok video using the selected audio and upload it directly on Instagram Reels. However, the video will keep the TikTok watermark.

2. Third-Party Apps to Extract Sound

Use third-party websites or apps like, MusicallyDown, KineMaster or Flixier to extract audio from TikTok videos. Use these tools to turn TikTok videos into MP3 files and edit them into Reels.

Step 1: Save the TikTok Video 

To use TikTok audio in Instagram Reels, save the desired TikTok video with the audio to your phone’s video library. Open the TikTok app, find the video with the audio, tap “Share,” and save it.

Step 2: Open Instagram and Go to Reels Editing

After that, open the Instagram app on your phone and tap the ‘+’ icon. Now, click on the ‘Reel’ tab located in the bottom right corner.

Step 3: Import TikTok Audio

When you reach the Reels editing page, tap the ‘music’ icon on the right side of the screen and click on ‘import’ to access the saved video. 

Step 4: Select the Video to Extract the Sound 

Select the video that contains the desired sound you want to import. Instagram will extract the sound from the video. Once the sound is extracted, tap ‘done’ to proceed.

Step 5: Record and Save

Now it’s time to start recording your video using the imported sound. Tap and hold the record button to begin recording. As you record, the imported sound will play in the background. Once you’re done recording, tap the ‘download’ button to save your video. You can now start editing your reel to post it online.
