TikTok and Spotify: thanks to this new feature you can now save songs easily!

From now on, users who enjoy a song on TikTok can save it automatically from the app to Spotify, Amazon Music, or Apple Music. Find out all the details here.

TikTok, the video platform used by millions of people around the world, launched a new feature called "Add to Music app", which allows saving songs directly to Spotify, Amazon Music, and Apple Music from the app, without having to go to the music streaming service to do so.

Before, when you discovered a song they found interesting on TikTok, you had to manually search for it on their music streaming service. Now, with the new update, it will be enough to tap the Add Song icon to add it to your playlist and continue enjoying it whenever you want.

How does the "Add to Music app" work in TikTok?

If you want to save a track you are listening to on TikTok to your Spotify, Amazon Music, or Apple Music playlist, you will be able to do so by tapping the icon that shows what song it is, located at the bottom left of the video. Then, you can choose the music platform of your preference.

According to TikTok, to use this function, you must have previously downloaded the music streaming service on your cell phone. Once a platform is selected, the songs will be saved there by default.

In the case of Spotify, songs saved from TikTok will be automatically included in the "Songs you like" playlist. Amazon Music, on the other hand, will store music tracks in a playlist of songs from TikTok. Users will be able to modify that target playlist to an existing one or a new one.

What is the impact of TikTok's new feature on artists?

TikTok's new feature boosts the music promotion of the different artists participating on the platform by connecting their songs directly to their profiles on streaming services, encouraging users to easily follow and find them.

TikTok's Global Head of Music Business Development Ole Obermann said in a statement, "TikTok is already the world's most powerful platform for music discovery and promotion, which helps artists connect with our global community to drive engagement with their music. Add to Music App takes this process a step further, 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 full-length song on the music streaming service of their choice, thereby generating even greater value for artists and rightsholders."

This new feature is not yet available in all markets but will be expanding soon. Currently, it can be used by users in the United Kingdom and the United States, whether they have a free or premium account. TikTok also announced that it is now rolling out the Add To Music App for users in 19 new countries: Canada; Japan; Germany; France; Italy; Spain; Saudi Arabia; Ireland; Sweden; Thailand; Malaysia; UAE; Argentina; Colombia; The Netherlands; Turkey; South Africa; Vietnam and The Philippines.
