In this guide, we'll demonstrate how you can transform any TikTok sound into your alarm for both Android and iPhone devices.

Setting a TikTok Sound as an Alarm on Android Devices

Android users can enjoy a simple process of making a TikTok sound their alarm. Follow these steps:

Step 1. Choosing the TikTok Sound

Step 2. Converting the Video to MP3

Navigate to an online video to MP3 converter (like Kapwing). Paste the copied URL in the relevant field, and the converter will import your chosen video. If you want to use only a portion of the sound, you can trim the audio using the provided option.

Step 3. Exporting and Downloading the Audio File

Click on 'Export', select the 'MP3' format, and the converter will start processing your audio track. Once done, you can download the MP3 file to your device.

Now, with the TikTok sound on your phone, navigate to your alarm app's settings. Here, you can select the downloaded audio file as your new alarm sound.

Setting a TikTok sound as an alarm on an iPhone involves a few additional steps. You'll need the help of Kapwing and the GarageBand app. Let's walk through the steps:

Step 1. Selecting the TikTok Sound

Similar to the Android process, find a TikTok video with your preferred sound, tap 'Share', then 'Copy Link', and the video URL is copied to your clipboard.

Step 2. Uploading Video to Kapwing's Converter

Head over to Kapwing's converter and paste the copied URL in the designated field. Kapwing will import the video, and if needed, you can trim the audio to your liking.

Step 3. Exporting and Downloading the MP3 File

Click 'Export', select the 'MP3' format, and Kapwing will process your audio track. After processing, you can download the MP3 file to your device.

Step 4. Adding Sound to a New GarageBand Project

Step 5. Exporting Sound as a Ringtone from GarageBand

After the sound has been added to your GarageBand project, navigate to the project settings and select 'Export as Ringtone'.

Step 6. Setting the TikTok Sound as Your Alarm

Finally, you can set the exported sound as your alarm. Open the Clock app and go to the alarm settings. Here, you will find your new sound listed among the other sounds. Choose it as your new alarm sound.

With these detailed steps, you can now wake up to the rhythm of your favorite TikTok tunes. It's an exciting way to start your day with the energy and creativity that TikTok sounds bring.
