Reverse audio online

Most of the free online services for reversing tracks have the same concept. You upload a file, magic happens, and then you download the output. Here are some recommended online websites for that.

The online approach is easy and fast, but also has some drawbacks. Not every service allows reversing only a part of your track, and there’ll often be size limitations on the uploaded tracks.

Besides, the editing session requires stable Internet connection, and you need to expose personal files to a web service.

In social media

If you plan to share your video with a reversed track online, you probably don‘t even need to install any third-party services.

How to reverse audio on TikTok

Reverse videos are pretty trendy on TikTok — here‘s how to make one.

  1. Record or upload your video.
  2. Tap Effects and find the Time option.
  3. Choose Reverse to preview your video and soundtrack played backwards.
  4. Hit Save and post the vid when ready.

How to reverse audio on Instagram

While there’s no native functionality to play videos and sound backwards on Instagram, one of the best ways to achieve this is the CapCut app for iPhone.

  1. Upload the video.
  2. Scroll the toolbar, find and tap Reverse.
  3. Save the clip and post it on Instagram.

How to reverse audio on Snapchat

Snapchat is known as one of the most popular social networks in the US and worldwide. Here’s how to reverse audio and video.

  1. Record your video.
  2. Swap right until you see the Reverse option (3 arrows).
  3. Post the clip.

Note that you can‘t do that with uploaded videos, the guide only works for video instantly recorded in the Snapchat app.

For pre-recorded video files, use the guide for Instagram above.
