TikTok parent company ByteDance is making a major move behind the scenes to bring TikTok Music to life.
As the company plans a worldwide launch of the TikTok Music service, it has filed trademarks in several markets, such as the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Mexico, Singapore, Malaysia, Costa Rica, Australia and USA.
The filling trademark application functionality in these countries includes listening to music, creating playlists, commenting on songs and participating in karaoke.
“users to purchase, play, share, download music, songs, albums, lyrics, quotes, create, recommend, share his/her playlists, lyrics, quotes, take, edit and upload photographs as the cover of playlists, comment on music, songs and albums.”
With TikTok Music on the way, the company will use their music distribution channels SoundsOn and Resso for users to access the music. TikTok users will also be able to play the entire song on the main platform.
For now, it’s a game on for TikTok Music to battle with music streaming giants like Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal Music, Deezer and Pandora.
