How to do fast forward and rewind on TikTok

You know how frustrating it can be to follow a TikTok recipe and miss a crucial bit of information. You have to watch the video again to find out how much salt you need to add. Is there anything else you need? Run it back. Let's watch it all again, buddy.

TikTok didn't allow you to fast forward or rewind videos in the app until recently. Usually, you should be able to follow instructions for a DIY project or recipe if you're following the instructions.

Fast forward and rewind features have recently been added to the app, but they aren't available to all users. Only videos longer than one minute are compatible with the feature, according to those who have it.

Tap and hold the white line at the bottom of a TikTok if you have the feature. A white dot should appear and the line should thicken. To help you out, a large time stamp should also appear to show you what time the dot shows up at.

There is a workaround available to those of us without this feature: we can download the video and fast forward and rewind at will. Here's how you do it.

Using this trick for each video will add a lot of downloading to your phone, so you may not want to use it all the time. When you need to see specific, small moments for a longer period of time, we recommend using instructional videos.

1. Decide on the video you need to fast forward or rewind.

2. Tap on the "Share" button.

The sharing options for TikToks are located in an arrow at the lower right corner of the screen. Whenever the creator enables this feature, you'll see a link for saving the video.

3. Tap on "Save Video."

You'll find it on the second or third row of circle icons on the third row of creators' profiles (or scrolling through For You Page.) If it's grayed out, that means the creator did not enable saving on this video, and you're out of luck. However, if the device is turned on, you can go ahead and tap.


4. Go to your Camera Roll, and the video should appear.

You should find the saved TikTok on your camera roll in the most recent position. Like any video you have saved in your camera roll, you can move your finger along the scrubber at the bottom of the screen. You can fast forward, rewind, pause, or rewatch as much as you like!


The video must be saved to your phone for this trick, so you should delete it after you've used it. This is especially important if you are running low on storage space. As we wait for TikTok to allow us to scrub through videos within the app, make room for the next video you'll likely have to download!
