You can set your TikTok iPhone app to scroll by voice command using this simple trick.
The tech hack was showcased by TikTok star “roxanna.roxi” in a recent video posted to her 1.1million followers.
In the 37-second clip, she shows how to dive into your iPhone settings to activate Voice Control, a feature that lets you use your device hands-free.
“Did you know you can scroll on TikTok without using your hands,” a robotic-voiced narrator barks over roxanna’s video. “Just say ‘next’.”
To give it a try for yourself, head to the settings app and tap “Accessibility”. Tap “set up voice control” or simply switch it on if you’ve set it up previously.
Once the feature is ready to go you can set up a command that will make your iPhone scroll down whenever you tell it to.
To do that, tap “Customise Commands” > “Create New Command”. In the phrase box, enter a speakable phrase of your choice, such as “next”.
Tap Action and hit “Run custom gesture”. Swipe up on your display. You should leave behind a short blue line on the screen. Tap “save”.
Next, head into “Application” and select TikTok.
Now, whenever you have TikTok open, speaking your selected command word aloud will cause the app to scroll down to the next video.
It’s a handy time-saver that makes browsing your feed a doddle.
While accessibility features are primarily designed to help out the mentally or physically impaired, they’re handy to able-bodied users, too.
You can set up spoken commands to perform a number of tasks, such as open the control center, go to the home screen, open specific apps and more.
You can even use the accessibility feature to dictate and edit text.
Other accessibility features in iOS include VoiceOver, which reads websites or text messages aloud, and Magnifier, which turns your iPhone camera into a magnifying glass.
