Viewers Control Your TikTok Stream With Webhooks

Want to notify Discord when you go live or get a big gift? How about letting viewers send gifts to change songs on Spotify, activate your Alexa, control your smart devices, post on your Twitter or do something crazy like turn off your PC?

The possibilities with TikFinity and IFTTT webhooks are endless and pretty easy to set up once you know how. If you're unfamiliar with TikFinity, I would suggest checking out my guide first.


So IFTTT stands for If This, Then That. In our case, "this" is a call from TikFinity and "that" is typically IFTTT controlling something.


Step 1: IFTTT Maker Webhooks


Regardless of what you use Webhooks for, these first 3 steps are always required.


Head to the IFTTT website, click explore then type in webhooks and click on it. Next, click documentation and copy the top URL on the page.


TikFinity will "call" this URL to enable your desired action.


Do not share this key with others. I'm only sharing mine because I can reset it before posting this.

Save this link somewhere like notepad or Google Docs. You will need this for everything we do.


Step 2: TikFinity Webhooks


Next up, head to TikFinity. Now on the Actions & Events page make yourself a new action or edit an existing one.


Tick the webhooks box and paste in your IFTTT webhook URL. Now we want to replace the "{event}" part of our webhook URL with a basic description of what happens.


While we're learning, we'll just type in "test", and then we can change it later.

Go ahead and save the action and now assign it to an event. I'll assign it to a command for now. We can easily edit this later.


Step 3: IFTTT Services


This step is gonna show us what services the viewers can control. It's also gonna be how TikFinity connects to IFTTT.


Click on Create in the top right of IFTTT. Click "If This" and type in webhooks and once clicked, choose "Receive a web request". Now type in the name of your request, you can just type "test" and change it later. This is how TikFinity connects to IFTTT.


Next, click "Then That" and now you have a gigantic list of everything your viewers can control. So just type in what you're looking for. Things like Discord, Spotify and Twitter are all there, along with many of the most popular smart devices too.


So these 3 steps are required for any TikFinity webhook. Now let's set up some specific examples and you can use the chapters to find what you want.


Step 4: Choose What The Viewers Will Do


Make sure you've done steps 1-3 first!
