TikTok’s parent company, ByteDance, filed a trademark application with the US Patent and Trademark Office for “TikTok Music” in May. According to the presentation, the service would allow users to buy, play, share and download music. It also allows users to create, share, and recommend playlists, comment on music, and stream live audio and video. ByteDance already applied for a “TikTok Music” trademark in Australia last November. ByteDance already has experience with streaming music. In 2020, ByteDance launched a music streaming app, Resso, in India, Brazil, and Indonesia. Resso has similar features described in the “TikTok Music” archive, such as creating playlists, sharing songs on social media, and interacting with the app’s community. ByteDance even uses
TikTok to bring existing users to Resso. According to a report by The Information, the TikTok app in Brazil has a button that redirects users to Resso so they can listen to the full version of a song they’re interested in, a move that helps keep users inside the ByteDance ecosystem.
