New: Download and Share Your MyHeritage Ethnicity Estimate as a Video

When MyHeritage DNA results are ready, the Ethnicity Estimate is revealed in an interactive display featuring a spinning globe, and background music representing the user’s ethnicities. Recently, some MyHeritage DNA users have started converting this interactive display of their ethnicity results into a video and sharing it on social media. Such videos have gained huge popularity, and dozens have gone viral on TikTok, Instagram, and other platforms.

We’ve now made it super easy for any MyHeritage DNA user to share their ethnicity results in a cool video, without the need to create and edit videos from screen recordings. If you’ve taken a MyHeritage DNA test or uploaded your DNA results from another service to MyHeritage, you can now download your interactive “spinning globe” ethnicity results as a video and share it on the social media platform of your choice. Who knows, your video may be the next one to go viral!

Below are a few examples of simple videos created by users that gained massive popularity:
