Going live on TikTok is one of the best ways of engaging and interacting directly with your followers. Not only does it allow you to have conversations with followers through comments and direct-to-camera answers, but it adds credibility to your TikTok brand or profile, and even allows you to earn some money through gifts and TikTok diamonds.

For those wanting to build a name for themselves on the platform, going live regularly is a no-brainer.

There are, of course, a few conditions to going live which impact TikTok creators and users – the most important being that in order to start a live stream, you need to have at least 1,000 followers.

But if you can surpass the minimum number of followers required, and you have something engaging and exciting to talk about or showcase during a live stream, then there really is nothing stopping you!

(Except perhaps more challenging technology…)

Which is where this article comes in.

Here’s how to go live on TikTok using a PC device.

Live Streaming on a PC Device

While going live on TikTok from a mobile device is incredibly straightforward, on a PC it is a little more complex…

  1. First you need to head to the TikTok site on your browser, and sign into the app.
  2. Then, head to your profile page and click on your profile image in the top right hand corner of the screen.
  3. A dropdown menu should appear – with one of the options being ‘TikTok Live Studio’. Click on this.
  4. You will then be taken to a page which invites you to download the TikTok Live Studio for Windows app.
  5. Once downloaded, you need to sign into your TikTok account to get the Live Studio app up and running.
  6. As soon as the app is up and running, you’re ready to start exploring the Live Studio and unlocking some of the tools and features that are designed to enhance your experience.

Just some of the things that you can and should look to do before starting your live stream is understand the different functions and choose between a landscape or portrait streaming screen.

You can then connect your camera, set some goals, and finally Go Live to all your followers!

Suffice to say, going Live on a PC is not quite as simple as it is on a smartphone or portable device – however, it is 100% possible and can be a really great option for those who want to create more stability and a more permanent set up for filming.
