According to fresh information uncovered by Insider, TikTok appears to be establishing a music streaming service in the United States.
According to Insider, the parent company of TikTok, ByteDance, submitted a trademark application for "TikTok Music" to the US Patent and Trademark Office in May.
The document claims that this platform would enable users to share, stream, buy, and download music.
Last November, ByteDance submitted a patent application for "TikTok Music" in Australia. The company also operates a streaming service named Resso in Indonesia, Brazil, and India.
Additionally, it has introduced a streaming service in China called Qishui Yinyue, which is Mandarin for "soda music."
Musicians may upload tunes directly to TikTok and then distribute them to other streaming platforms using the new SoundOn platform, which TikTok debuted in March.
Whether the newly suggested TikTok Music will function similarly to either of the current streaming services is yet unknown.
The impact of TikTok on the music business has been enormous. A song trending on TikTok increases streams outside the app and encourages more purchases of specific tracks or albums.
