Capture TikTok Live on iPhone

Capturing TikTok live on an iPhone is a pretty straightforward process, as iPhones have a built-in iOS screen recorder. But users need to know how to access this feature to be able to make the most out of it and record TikTok live videos.

This method works all the same on all iOS devices, including iPhones and iPads, and here's what the user will have to do.

Step 1. Open the Settings app on an iPhone, then head into Control Center and tap Customize.

Step 2. Now find and tick the Plus mark next to Screen Recording.

Step 3. Swipe down on the home screen to open Control Center, and tap the Recording button in the bottom-left.

Step 4. Open TikTok and note the record timer in the top-left corner.

Step 5. Stop the recording by tapping the red recording button in the control center.

This will record the screen while a user watches TikTok live as long as they like. But the recording time will depend on the storage available on their iPhone. But using the built-in screen recorder on an iOS device is the best way to record or download TikTok videos to an iPhone.

Record TikTok Live on Android

The following method is to record TikTok live on Android mobile devices. Now it's quite different compared to iPhone, but the idea is more or less the same to record the screen with a built-in Android screen recorder. Now recording on various Android phones will be different, but the methods might remain the same.

That's because various manufacturers like Samsung or Xiaomi have their own renditions of the Android firmware. So it might look just a bit different, but it'll still follow the same route to record screens like this.

Step 1. Run TikTok and watch the live video.

Step 2. Scroll/Swipe down on the home screen to open the control center.

Step 3. Find and tap on the Screen Recorder option.

Step 4. Select sound settings according to the requirement.

Step 5. Watch the record bar and tap the Stop button whenever TikTok live is done.

This method to record TikTok notifies screen recording on the top-right of the Android screen. That means the user will be able to use this screen recording feature until they are done recording TikTok live. But this method also depends on the storage that users have on their Android devices.

Final Words

These are the three main methods to record and download TikTok videos on various devices. Apple's iPhone has a screen recorder that'll help iOS users record and download TikTok videos. Then Android has a specific feature to record and download live videos on the device.

And PC/Mac users will be better off using the viable tool known as EaseUS RecExperts. It's one of the best tools to help users record their screens without issues or problems. It's not only the quickest but also the safest and easiest tool for recording screens on either Windows or Mac computers.

How to Screen Record on TikTok Live FAQs

There are always more questions when queries are like how to screen record TikTok live. That's why here are some Frequently Asked Questions that might help users further.

1. Can you see if someone screen records your TikTok live?

There is no such thing as TikTok notifying screen recording when a user takes a screenshot or records videos from a creator. This feature is common in apps like Snapchat, allowing other users to know when someone screenshots their snaps or videos.

2. Can you save a TikTok live?

Only the user who live streams can rewatch their own TikTok live should they choose to save it. But a user can also view a creator's TikTok live by simply recording it when they are live. There is no other way to save another creator's TikTok live video for viewing later.

3. Can live streamers see who is watching TikTok?

TikTok creators see the viewer count but cannot see individual viewers. A TikTok creator only finds out who is watching by seeing someone comment or send a gift during the live stream. But creators do have the option to turn on profile view history which allows them to see who viewed their profile.
