TikTok has become a phenomenon that has wrapped people of all ages within. The large and diverse users of the platform provide such variety that everybody can get a piece of it. Thousands of TikTok likes on the platform validate the popularity of the platform. Users download these videos to use in stories and statuses on other platforms.
Have you ever wondered if you can use a TikTok video as live wallpaper? You can use TikTok videos as Live Wallpaper; the steps are not very complex. And this piece will let you know precisely how to do so. Let's get straight to it.
TikTok allows the creators to decide whether to let the viewers download the videos. You can only make live photos from videos if the creators have enabled the download option.
Furthermore, videos from the private account cannot be used to make live photos. You may see the videos of personal accounts on your feed if they have accepted your follow request, but you will not be able to download them.
That said, there are some third-party applications to work around it. You can use them to download videos even when the creators do not allow them. Once the video is downloaded, other third-party applications can be used to convert the downloaded video into live photos.
The steps to download a video from TikTok as a live photo are different for iOS and Android. Let's take a look at both of them.
You must follow the steps to convert TikTok video into Live Photo and use it as wallpaper.
Step #1: Unlock your iPhone and open TikTok
Step #2: Find the video that you want to convert.
Step #3: Tap on "Share," and it will open several options.
Step #4: Right next to the report, tap on "Live Photo."
Step #5: It will convert the video into a Live Image.
Once the video is converted, there are two ways to use it as wallpaper for the iPhone.
Method 1 - Set the Wallpaper Directly
Step #1: Open the “Live Photo” option
Step #2: Go to “Options”
Step #3: Select "Use as Wallpaper."
Step #4: The live image will be selected as your “Live Wallpaper”
Method 2 - Set the Wallpaper from Settings
Step #1: Go to the Settings
Step #2: Open Wallpaper right beneath Display & Brightness
Step #3: Select "Choose a New Wallpaper."
Step #4: Browse the downloaded live image and select it
Step #5: It will allow you to position the wallpaper as you want
Step #6: Once satisfied with the position, tap on "Set."
Step #7: You will get the option to either "Set Lock Screen" or "Select Both."
Step #8: Choose the option you want, and your new Live wallpaper is all set.
Note: Videos that have a high number of TikTok likes would make the best live wallpaper for your phone.
Downloading Live Photo on Android is just as simple as on iOS. However, there is an additional step for android users, which is to download an application. You must install TikTok Wall Pictures, an application developed by Musical.ly. The same company runs TikTok, so there is no risk of malware or scam. Essentially, it is a plug-in that allows android users to convert videos into live images with high TikTok views. Best part? The application is entirely free.
You can download the application from the Google Play Store. And once it is installed, follow these steps;
Step #1: Unlock the Phone and Open TikTok

Step #3: Tap on the share button, and you will see several options.
Step #4: Select download lives photo, and it will be downloaded.
Step #5: Find the video that has garnered many TikTok views to make the best wallpaper.
Once you have downloaded the video, there are two ways to use it as a live wallpaper. You can find the downloaded live image on the TikTok Wall Picture Application. Some versions of Android also show it in the Gallery.
Method 1: Select the Wallpaper Directly
Step #1: Go to the Gallery and find the live photo you just downloaded.
Step #2: Tap on the three dots at the bottom right of the screen.
Step #3: Select the set as wallpaper.

Step #4: Select Gallery and find the image that you downloaded.
Step #5: Again, you will get two options: "Set as Lock Screen" and "Set Both."
Step #6: Select the one per your personal likeness, and the wallpapers will be set.
Note: Generally, people go for videos with higher TikTok views, and most of the time, these are the best. But sometimes, even videos that have yet to garner more TikTok Likes can make great live wallpaper.
You can delete all live pictures from the TikTok Wall Pictures application by selecting the live image and tapping on the three dots at the bottom of the screen. Select "Delete" from the options to remove the file from the application. Be mindful that deleting the live image from the application will also revert the wallpaper.
Furthermore, deleting the TikTok Wall Picture Application will also have similar repercussions. But as soon as you reinstall the application, all the live wallpaper collections will automatically appear.
As discussed earlier, TikTok lets the creators decide whether they want the viewers to download the video. And if they do not allow it, you will not be able to download them directly from the TikTok application. However, several workarounds can be used. You can use third-party applications to download the video and then use another application to convert it into a live photo.
The intricacies vary in different applications, but the basics remain the same. You have to copy the link of the TikTok video and paste it into these applications. Some applications only download videos that have enough TikTok views. Once the video is downloaded, import it into the third-party applications and convert them into live wallpapers.
Once the application converts the video into a live wallpaper, you can use the steps mentioned earlier to set the live image as your phone's wallpaper.
TikTok is a fantastic platform that provides a ton of stuff to users of all kinds. Some videos of natural landscapes, museums, and animals are just too attractive to be viewed once. You may want to watch those videos again and again. Thus, there is no better way to do that than to make them live wallpaper. The process is quite simple and does not require third-party applications, which some people are skeptical about. We hope we have articulated that in this piece.
