TikToks makers coming with Music Streaming App soon


TikTok’s parent company, ByteDance, is reportedly working on a separate app that will enable users to find new music.

The company recently filed a trademark with the US Patent and Trademark Office for an app that will be branded “TikTok Music”.

Since 2020, TikTok has helped millions of people around the world to experience music and discover artistes. Now the company is taking it many notches higher with the upcoming app.

Although the app’s release date is still unknown, a music streaming service from TikTok will no doubt rival streaming giants like Spotify and Apple Music.

In 2020, ByteDance launched Resso, a music streaming service which, according to app tracker, AppBrain, has gone on to gather 100million downloads. The app was however launched in limited markets, excluding the US and Africa.

With this new move, it seems ByteDance is trying to replicate Resso to a wider audience. But this time around, the music will go hand in hand with video content.

Per the trademark, users will be able to “live stream audio and video interactive media programs in the sphere of entertainment, fashion, sports, and current affairs”.
