TikTok is a popular app that allows users to vertically scroll through short videos. The platform is used by millions of people and has become especially popular among young adults. Many people use TikTok to find humorous content or to discover new music. In addition to its entertainment value, the platform also has a number of useful features that make it an attractive option for businesses. However, a lack of a mute button has been a major drawback for some users.

Some users have found ways to mute TikTok without using the official app features. They may wear earplugs or use noise-canceling headphones to block out the sound of videos on the app. Others have tried to reduce the volume on their device or adjust their phone’s settings to mute the app. However, these methods can be inconvenient and aren’t foolproof.

In response to these concerns, TikTok has announced that it will soon be adding a feature that will allow users to open the app with all videos muted by default. The feature will be available in the app’s Playback section and can be toggled on and off at any time.

To enable the feature, users will need to update their versions of the TikTok app to version 2.8.8 or higher. Once the update is available, users will be able to select the “Mute All Videos” option from the Playback menu. Alternatively, they can enable the feature by following these steps:
