If you’ve been constantly scrolling through TikTok like me, you’d likely be familiar with an incredibly impressive AI voice changer filter on the app. But what is the use of something like that on TikTok, and how will the future of content creating look like with something like this being easily accessible?
What is it?
Sadly, this voice changer filter isn’t yet available in Malaysia. However, you can still watch countless TikTok videos by creators of different countries using the filter to make top-notch content.
Basically, the TikTok AI voice changer filter works by having you record yourself or the sounds of people speaking. You’ll then need to change the voice by going to “Audio Editing” and choosing the male or female AI voice filter. In Malaysia, you can only choose the basic ones like “Chipmunk” or “Robot”—and they’re not as impressive.
By changing your voice with the AI voice filter, you can see how you sound like as a man or a woman. But TikTok creators have been using the filter to do absolutely hilarious content, like re-recording dramatic movie monologues or music videos.
Incredibly, the voice changer also works with different languages.
So, what is it even for?
Like a lot of features you find on TikTok, the purpose of the filter that the platform had in mind is unclear. It might purely be for entertainment purposes, but it could be a game changer for content creators who would rather keep their voices anonymous. And for people who identify with a specific gender, the AI voice filter would help them feel more comfortable.
Some transgender users on TikTok said they experienced “gender euphoria” after using the voice filter. TikTok creator Kloe Rose said that she “remember filming a video and immediately sobbing” after hearing her speak with such a feminine tone. Another creator said that they hope that TikTok might allow users to customise things such as pitch, tone, and timbre of the voice filters in the future.
There is still a lot of potential for what the accessible voice filter would be able to do for the future of content creating. For now, seeing the immense amount of hilarious and creative content by TikTokers is enough to keep us entertained. I just can’t wait to use it if it ever rolls out in Malaysia.
