A TikTok Music app could challenge Spotify and Apple

Considering how intertwined music discovery is with TikTok, it wouldn’t be all that surprising if the company launched a music streaming app of its own. Well, patent filings uncovered by Insider suggest TikTok’s working on just that. TikTok's parent company, ByteDance, has filed for a trademark application for TikTok Music. The service would let users purchase, play, share, and download music. It would also allow users to create playlists, comment on music, and livestream audio and video.
