The Symphony AI creative suite has another tool named Symphony AI Dubbing. It enables creators and marketers to translate their content into more than ten languages and dialects, including Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Thai, and Korean. Symphony AI Dubbing detects the spoken language in the video, transcribes, translates, and generates a new dubbed video with the chosen language. Any video that uses AI-powered avatars or AI-dubbing will be labeled as AI-generated. TikTok did not reveal the pricing of their AI advertising and marketing tools. 

A TikTok user gave positive feedback on an avatar video, saying he “waited an age for this stuff.” Another user did not like TikTok AI avatars since they’re so realistic. Another user commented on the video, saying, “This is MESSED UP.”
