TikTok, known for its role as a social media tastemaker and platform for emerging artists and creators, is expanding its music streaming service to new countries. While it has already become a global leader in social media content, TikTok’s unique approach to music has allowed artists to share song snippets, enabling other creators to enhance their content with these sounds. Now, the platform aims to support artists even further by launching its own streaming service, aiming to compete with giants like Apple Music and Spotify.
The new features, currently in beta testing in Brazil and Indonesia, will soon be accessible to users in Australia, Mexico, and Singapore. With TikTok Music, users can enjoy full versions of song edits, use a “Shazam-style” feature to discover music, create collaborative playlists, and engage by commenting on songs.
“TikTok Music is a new kind of music service that combines the power of music discovery on TikTok with a music streaming service offering millions of tracks from thousands of artists.”
While the expansion continues, TikTok has already struck a licensing agreement with Warner Music and introduced the Elevate program, providing upcoming musicians with a platform and resources to thrive. As TikTok continues to innovate and support artists, the world eagerly anticipates the roll-out of TikTok Music to more countries.
