TikTok Widens Music Streaming Service Test To Australia, Mexico, And Singapore

TikTok already offers a music streaming service called Resso, which is available in India, Brazil, and Indonesia

TikTok has commenced the invitation process for users in Australia, Mexico, and Singapore to participate in a closed beta test of its latest music streaming service, as reported by SurgeZirc UK and CNBC.

The popular short-form video hosting app had initially launched the beta testing phase for its emerging streaming service in Brazil and Indonesia earlier in July.

Now, the experimental phase of its music service is being expanded, with invited users in these regions being granted a complimentary three-month trial to explore the features.

Testers will have access to TikTok Music, a separate app that can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.

Despite its standalone nature, the app is designed to integrate with the main TikTok app, enabling users to discover the complete versions of songs that have gained popularity on the video-sharing platform.

The music streaming app is said to offer tailored song recommendations, real-time lyrics, collaborative playlists, and a lyrics search feature.

SurgeZirc UK has noted its resemblance to Shazam, suggesting that it can identify songs by listening to them, and it allows users to download tracks for offline listening.

After the trial period concludes, TikTok has informed SurgeZirc UK that users in Australia will be charged AUD12 (US$8.16) per month, while those in Mexico will pay Mex$115 (US$6.86), and users in Singapore will incur a cost of S$9.90 (US$7.48) to continue using the service.

TikTok already offers a music streaming service called Resso, which is available in India, Brazil, and Indonesia. However, the company plans to discontinue Resso in the latter two countries by September.

While there hasn’t been an official announcement regarding the availability of the music app in the United States, TikTok did file a trademark application for “TikTok Music” in the country in May 2022
