If you no longer own the Musical.ly because you uninstalled it, to resume using the service, you need to download the app TikTok on Android or iOS, as it is the new platform that integrates Musical.ly videos and brings with it the profiles of all users registered to the previous social network. Find all the operations to be carried out in the following lines.
To download the TikTok, you can refer to the Android store, that is the Play Store. Then press the icon with the symbol of a colored flag that you find on the home screen of your device or in the drawer (the section where all the installed apps are located), then use the search engine at the top to type TikTok and press the button Search on the keyboard of your device.
Then select the app of Tik Tok from the results obtained (it has the symbol of a music note and is developed by Musical.ly Inc). and presses the buttons Install e Accept. Then wait for the download and automatic installation to finish and then start the application by pressing the button apri you see on the screen. Alternatively, once downloaded and installed, you can also start the app directly by pressing on its icon that will have been added to the home screen of your device.
Alternative method for Android
If your Android smartphone does not have the Play Store from Google, you can download the application of TikTok with an alternative method that involves the withdrawal of its APK file through third-party Internet sites, such as for example APKMirror.
To be able to do this correctly, however, you must have previously enabled on your device the ability to download apps from Unknown origin. So go to the menu Settings Android (the icon of thegear on the main screen), tap on the item Safety and then move the lever up ON, in correspondence with the wording Unknown origin, also pressing on OK, in case you are asked for further confirmation.
This procedure may be different depending on the Android device you are using, so if you have any problems, please refer to my tutorial where I have explained to you in more detail how to download APKs.

Then wait for the file to be downloaded via the browser and, in case you are shown a warning about the potential danger of the latter, click on OK in order to confirm the download. If you are asked to choose which application to start the download with, press the one that refers to the browser you are using, such as Google Chrome. If instead you are asked to choose which Android folder to save the file, select the item Download and press pulsating Download.
As soon as the download of the file is finished, you can proceed with the installation of the latter. Then locate the APK package in the Android notifications menu (this is what you can see by swiping from the top to the bottom of the screen), via the app Download of Android or through an application of File Manager as an example Files Go by Google. Once this is done, proceed to install the app, first pressing on the downloaded file and then on the buttons Install e end, and start it.
To download TikTok on iPhone or iPad, on the other hand, you have to use theApp Store of iOS, that is the virtual store in which games and apps for the “bitten apple” devices are installed.
Then refer to the application with the symbol of a Stylized "A" in white color on light blue background that you find on the home screen of your device, then press the button Search below (the symbol of a magnifying glass) and, in the text field dedicated to the search (at the top), type TikTok, then pressing the key Search on the keyboard of your device.
Then locate the social network application and tap on its icon, which is characterized by the symbol of a musical note. Now, to install it, click on the button Get and then on the one named Install. Next, start installing the app via the Face ID, touch ID or the Password of your iCloud account.
