Wondering why you can't go live on TikTok? TikTok Live isn't for everyone.
To go live on TikTok, you must be at least 16 years old and have 1000 or more followers.
If you just turned 16 or earned 1000 followers and don't immediately see the option to go live, don't panic. You may need to wait a few days for TikTok to update its records before you're able to livestream on the platform.
If you still can't go live on TikTok, you may have recently violated TikTok's policies, leaving your account up for review or suspension.
TikTok creators over the age of 18 can receive virtual gifts when going live on the platform. Soliciting gifts violates TikTok's community guidelines, though, so you'll want to avoid asking for gifts or offering incentives to receive gifts while live on TikTok.
