Are you watching a live video on TikTok but the chat bothers you? If you would like to enjoy the experience without interruption from other viewers, there are a few ways to hide the chat on TikTok Live. In this article, we will show you three different methods and helpful tips so that you can enjoy live TikTok without distractions.
The first method to hide the chat is to tap on the “Clear Screen” button. This button is in the share box at the bottom right of the screen. Tapping the “Clear Screen” button will remove all messages and comments, allowing you to view your screen normally without interruption. If the button doesn’t appear, don’t worry, as this button only appears for some users.
Swipe the chat window (method 2 to hide chat on TikTok)
The second method is to slide the chat window out. It is usually done by swiping right from the left side. Once you slide the window out, it will disappear completely, even if other people continue to type in the chat. To bring back the chat window, simply swipe back from the opposite direction.
Touch and hold the screen (method 3 to hide chat on TikTok)
The third method is to touch and hold the screen. If you touch the live video and hold your finger for a few seconds, a new window will appear. If it contains a ‘clear screen’ button, click it to hide chat messages left by other viewers.
At this time, there is no way to automatically hide the chat window on TikTok. You will have to manually clear the chat every time you watch a live video, even if you return to the same live video later.
But, now that you know the three different methods to hide chat on TikTok, you can enjoy the experience without distraction from other viewers.
