The parent firm of TikTok, Byte Dance, is now eyeing the music streaming industry with the launch of “TikTok Music” and posing a threat to the major players like Spotify, Apple Must, and the rest after dominating the short-video format market and giving Meta (previously Facebook) pause. For “TikTok Music,” the company has submitted a trademark application with the US Patent and Trademark Office.
The application has been submitted for a variety of services, including “offering online non-downloadable videos, non-downloadable audio, still and moving images incorporating music, songs, and lyrics and display of online music videos through mobile device.” The TikTok service will also provide pre-recorded music, essays on music, and information in the realm of music.

Users will be able to “buy, play, share, download music, songs, albums, lyrics, quotes, make, recommend, and share their playlists, lyrics, and quotes; take, edit, and upload images as the covers of playlists; and comment on music, songs, and albums” through TikTok Music. The ability to “live-stream audio and video interactive media programmes in the fields of entertainment, fashion, sports, and current events” will also be provided to users.
In various nations, including India, Byte Dance already runs a music streaming service by the name of Resso. Here, it hopes to compete with services like Wynk, Jio Saavn, Gaana, Amazon Prime Music, and others. Resso received 42.3 million downloads from the App Store and Google Play between January and May of this year, according to the most recent data from Sensor Tower.
Resso, in contrast to other music applications, lets users make gifs and video snippets like to those on TikTok, as well as comments on songs. Resso from Byte dance gives streaming music a whole new perspective and has the potential to surpass TikTok as the next major hit. Sound On is a platform that TikTok has already introduced for the promotion and distribution of music.
