TikTok Music comes to compete with Spotify and Apple Music

TikTok may not be popular in India, but that’s the only source of trouble for Google and Meta, especially in the US. For Google, this is why teenagers are giving up on its hunt as they can now find answers to all their hunting queries on the platform acquired by TikTok. Meta suits artistic TikTok, which received it to deal with backlash from the Kardashians. TikTok is expertly executed. He could be alive on a live music app now.

TikTok Music by ByteDance is not a new concept.

ByteDance has prior experience in music streaming. Indeed, TikTok’s parent company, Russo, launched a music streaming app, Russo, in India, Brazil, and Indonesia in 2020. It also has some features described in the “TikTok Music” trademark filing. Therefore, you can use the app to create playlists, share songs on social media, and interact with the community.

The company is using TikTok to attract existing Russo users in certain countries. In Brazil, for example, a button redirects users to Russo, where they can listen to the full version of a song that piques their interest. According to The Information, Russo had over 40 million monthly users in India, Brazil and Indonesia as of November 2021.

TikTok’s ancestor aggregation, ByteDance, is alive on an alleged “TikTok Music” app, according to an apparent filing with the US Patent and Trademark Office uncovered by Insider. The prominent appearance of the new app would allow users to buy, play, share and download music. Users may also be able to create, share and cheer playlists, as well as music animations and live audio and video feedback. Everything you can do on TikTok Music makes it appear as a potential competitor to Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube Music, among others.

TikTok in 2021 and 2022

ByteDance’s Russo is so inextricably linked to TikTok that the app has a button in the worst markets to redirect users to the live music app. TikTok is no longer available in India, but Russo is. According to The Information, Russo added more than 40 users from actor accounts in India, Brazil and Indonesia in November, after most of the year. Even though TikTok was unavailable, Russo was slowly growing. According to insiders, users of Russo’s account in India grew by 304% between January 2021 and January 2022.

Last words

ByteDance intends to take on the bigwigs like Spotify and Apple Music. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that TikTok’s entry into the amplitude is going to shake it up like never before.
