TikTok, renowned as a global hub for music discovery, is taking a giant leap forward with its latest feature, "Add to Music App." Launched in partnership with major streaming services such as Amazon Music and Spotify, this innovative addition allows users in the US and UK to seamlessly save the songs they discover on TikTok directly to their preferred music streaming platforms.

Designed to capture the essence of music in the moment of discovery, the "Add Song" button appears alongside a track name at the bottom of TikTok videos in the For You Feed. Users can now effortlessly save their favorite tunes to the streaming service of their choice with a simple click.

Upon the first use, users can select their preferred music streaming service and choose where the track will be saved. The default playlist locations include the "TikTok Songs" playlist on Amazon Music or the "Liked Songs" playlist on Spotify. However, users have the flexibility to create new playlists or add the track to existing ones.
