TikTok has signed a deal with U.S. music distribution company UnitedMasters that will allow the TikTok users to distribute their music directly to different streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music.
The announcement comes days after American President Donald Trump had ordered ByteDance, TikTok’s parent, to stop the video app operations within 90 days. He also threatened the Chinese company to ban the application in the country over concerns about the safety of the personal data it controls.
According to details, ByteDance is planning to sell North America, Australia, and New Zealand TikTok’s operations to Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O).
It should be mentioned here that on August 1st, 2020, Trump said that he will ban social media app TikTok from the country as American authorities have raised concerns the service could be a tool for Chinese intelligence.
