If you’ve got an iPhone, you’ll be familiar with Siri. The automated voice is your own virtual assistant that appears on all Apple devices. However, it’s become so popular that the term ‘Siri’ is now used to refer to any automated voice, even on TikTok.

What is the TikTok Siri voice?

TikTok just launched its own automated voice that reads out your text for you. Its official name is ‘text to speech’, but most users just call it Siri.

Essentially, it turns text that you write on the screen into speech, and it’s really easy to do.

Some people use it because they don’t want to use their real voice on TikTok, whilst others find it funny to see how the automated voice says specific words. Either way, it’s becoming really popular on the social media app.

How to use the Siri voice on TikTok

  • Open TikTok and film your video. 
  • Then, write your text on the screen.
  • Click on the text that you want to be read by the Siri voice and tap ‘text to speech’.

Social media users love ‘text to speech’

TikTok’s text to speech feature is proving to be really popular, and it’s being used for a number of different sketches on the app. In fact, the hashtag #texttospeech has actually had 327.5 million views on TikTok.

One social media user tweeted: “I can’t stop reading everything in that Siri closed caption voice from TikTok. Help.”

“The Siri voiceovers on TikTok is honestly the best thing that has happened so far in 2021,” said another.

Another person wrote: “I talk to myself in my brain the way the text to speech from TikTok sounds.”
