For short-form video fans and music lovers, good news comes from TikTok. The popular video-sharing platform recently announced the expansion of its “Add to Music App” feature to 163 new countries, including Indonesia. This feature serves as a golden bridge that facilitates users to save the song playing in a TikTok video to their favorite music streaming service, such as Apple Music, Spotify, and Amazon Music.

More Than Just Entertainment: Finding Musical Harmony on TikTok

TikTok is not an ordinary short-form video platform. Besides offering diverse entertainment content, TikTok is also known as a global music trendsetter. Songs used in TikTok videos often go viral and experience a surge in popularity. However, finding catchy song titles among millions of videos can be a challenge.

The “Add to Music App” feature comes as the answer for music seekers. Now, users in Indonesia no longer have to bother searching for song titles manually. Simply by pressing the “Add Music” button, the song is automatically added to their favorite playlist.

This is in line with a similar move by Spotify, which has partnered with BeReal, Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter to make it easier for users to add songs to Spotify.

By combining the power of viral short-form videos with easy access to music streaming platforms, TikTok has the potential to become a golden bridge for music lovers to find new songs and artists that suit their taste.
