You’ve likely come across videos with a split-screen while scrolling through TikTok. Essentially, this is called the duet feature, and it offers content creators a great way to respond to other videos.

Not only that, but you can also use this feature to act out movie scenes or create music with your friends, and you don’t even have to be in the same room to do so! Also, did you know you can even duet yourself? Here’s what you need to do in order to start using this feature.
