TikTok added a new formats option to its iconic Duets feature.

People on TikTok can now choose from four layouts when creating their Duets: a left-and-right layout, react layout, top-and-bottom layout or three-screen layout.

For left-and-right and top-to-bottom layouts, users can toggle their video to populate their preferred spot on the screen. Videos can be repositioned via holding and dragging in the top-to-bottom and three-screen layouts.

Users can enable or disable Duets for all videos posted from their accounts via their settings, or toggle the option for each video they upload. Dueted videos attribute the original video’s creator in the caption, and the caption attribution links directly to the original, Dueted video.

TikTok said that to use the new Duet layouts, people can:

  • Find a video to Duet.
  • Press the “Send to” arrow button at the bottom right of the video.
  • Hit the “Duet” button.
  • Once on the Record Video page, press the “Layout” button from the editing tools on the right side of the page.
  • Select a preferred layout and begin recording.

Examples of the new layouts follow:
