TikTok has had a huge impact on the music industry, so it makes sense that the platform’s newest feature lets you save songs directly to apps like Spotify or Amazon Music.
The new feature, called “Add to Music App”, was announced by TikTok on Tuesday. The feature will appear as a button next to the song name at the bottom of the screen. All you have to do is click “Add Music”. The first time a user clicks on the button, it will give them the option to select their preferred music platform, such as Spotify or Amazon Music.
“TikTok is now the world’s most powerful music discovery and promotion platform, helping artists connect with our global community to drive engagement with their music,” said Ole Obermann, TikTok’s global head of music development. business, in a statement. “Add to Music app takes this process one step further by creating a direct link between discovery on TikTok and consumption on a music streaming service, making it easier than ever for music fans to enjoy the entire song on the music streaming service of their choice, by thereby generating even greater value for artists and rights holders.”

For Spotify users, a saved song from TikTok will automatically go to your favorite songs, notes TechCrunch. In Amazon Music, it will be sent to a TikTok-specific playlist or another playlist of the user’s choice.
The feature could come in handy for users considering that TikTok has proven to be extremely influential in the music business. If a song is trending on the app, it’s almost certain to appear on the Billboard charts. TikTok has launched major music careers and helped independent artists make a living. It makes sense that the platform would lean even more heavily on its role as a music discovery tool.
Now, whenever you hear something catchy on TikTok, you can bring it directly to your favorite music app.
