To do this, and to browse trending sounds specifically, simply tap the magnifying glass search bar on TikTok and type ‘Trending’, then select the ‘Sounds’ tab to browse the different sounds which are making their way across the platform.

3. Browse The For You Page

Another way to see which sounds are trending, is simply to browse the app and scroll through posts that are linked to your interests and your industry – identifying the sounds that keep appearing and jumping out in different posts.

If a sound is trending, especially within your market or usual demographic, then you won’t have to scroll for too long before you start to pick it out. Using your own research, you can also see the kinds of posts and formats which are popular and related to those trending sounds – then add your own spin.

4. Find Sounds That Link to Your Post
