TikTok rolled out a new voiceover tool that enables video creators to add their own voices to their creations.

To add a voiceover, users can record a video and then continue to the editing page. Tapping the microphone icon in the corner labeled “Recording” enables them to press the record button and record a voiceover during any part of the video.

Volume can be adjusted via the “original sound” toggle.

TikTok said in a blog post, “Voiceovers have been used in visual storytelling for years and offer creators a way to expand inner monologues, interesting perspectives and character development within a narrative. Movies like Goodfellas, The Sandlot and Pootie Tang are just a few films that utilize the voiceover. With the voiceover tool, users will have the ability to add their voice to any video they make. Whether they’re narrating a story, adding their own voice to a song or simply describing what’s seen on camera, creators can use this new feature in countless ways to help make engaging content.”
