Spotify and Apple Music could face great competition… from TikTok?

TikTok may be working on a rival to Spotify and Apple Music, based on a new trademark application its parent company ByteDance just filed in the US.

The trademark is for a service called TikTok Music. Not only does the name imply that it will rival the best music streaming services in the world, but the trademark request clarify for us. ByteDance calls TikTok Music a smartphone and desktop app that “allows users to buy, play, share [and] music download”, as well as offering the ability to listen to non-downloadable audio and video (read: streaming).
