This Unity package lets you share your funny videos or pictures of your game directly to TikTok Android application.


Installation process

  • Download the package from Package Manager
  • Import it in your project
  • Download Google’s Unity Jar Resolver from: Unity Jar Resolver and import in your project. After that resolve all dependencies by using: Assets -> External Dependency Manager -> Android Resolver -> Resolve or Force Resolve

Sharing content using TikTok Share helper is easier than anything else, but before that there are a few things that needs to be done.

  • Open your main AndroidManifest.xml file in Assets/Plugins/Android/ folder and add this code inside tag:


Where com.package.name is the package name of your application.

  • Add this permission if it’s not already included in your AndroidManifest.xml file:

      <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
  • Last but not least add <queries> tag inside your manifest file:

          <package android:name="com.zhiliaoapp.musically" />

Here is a sample AndroidManifest.xml file:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" package="com.unity3d.player" android:installLocation="preferExternal" android:theme="@android:style/Theme.NoTitleBar" android:versionCode="1" android:versionName="1.0">
        <supports-screens android:smallScreens="true" android:normalScreens="true" android:largeScreens="true" android:xlargeScreens="true" android:anyDensity="true" />
            <package android:name="com.zhiliaoapp.musically" />
        <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
        <application android:icon="@drawable/app_icon" android:label="@string/app_name" android:debuggable="false">
            <activity android:name="com.unity3d.player.UnityPlayerActivity" android:label="@string/app_name" android:configChanges="orientation|screenSize">
                    <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
                    <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
                <meta-data android:name="unityplayer.UnityActivity" android:value="true" />
                <meta-data android:name="unityplayer.ForwardNativeEventsToDalvik" android:value="true" />
            <provider android:name="androidx.core.content.FileProvider" android:authorities="com.hardartcore.tiktokshare.fileprovider" android:exported="false" android:grantUriPermissions="true">
                <meta-data android:name="android.support.FILE_PROVIDER_PATHS" android:resource="@xml/file_paths"/>

And after the setup is complete you can use the helper class as:

    private void ShareTikTokImages() {
        // Use the instance to share images.
        TikTokShareHelper.ShareImages("Share message", string[]{imagepath}); // for images

    private void ShareTikTokVideo() {
        // Use the instance to share images.
        TikTokShareHelper.ShareVideos("share message", string[]{videoPath}); // for videos
