TikTok is the app of the moment, the one ready to steal the show from others social networks such as Instagram, Facebook and derivatives. Loved by young people, it has now gradually conquered adults as well, not to mention companies and even celebrities who gradually open a personal account by performing in more or less funny mini-videos.

In short, its growth does not stop, on the contrary it is ready to conquer other markets, not only does it want to launch a smartphone but also to offer the music streaming. Well yes, according to some rumors, TikTok would be ready to enter into direct competition with giants like Amazon, Apple Music o Spotify, and given the success achieved, this hypothesis is far from unfounded. To do this, he would rely on resso, an external app currently being tested in countries like India and Indonesia. What are the characteristics of Resso and why is it a real revolution for the online music sector?

What is Resso, TikTok's music streaming app?

Resso is the app developed by TikTok that allows you to listen to streaming music. Its operation has been described by Bloomberg. The news site would also have added an interesting rumor: its really advantageous price. In fact, Resso is available in the Indian Google Play Store in the form of a monthly subscription at a cost of 120 rupees, approximately 1.50 €. The affordable figure triggered a wave of downloads in just a few hours. In fact, more than 27 thousand users have downloaded it only two hours after its launch, and the number is constantly increasing.

But what does it allow you to do, besides listening streaming music? Let's say it is a mix between the traditional functions of TikTok and those of Spotify and derivatives: on the one hand it offers a rich catalog of songs, on the other hand these can be used as a basis for creating your own videos.

In fact, not only can you play music, but also see the lyrics of the songs - in karaoke style - and record the classic mini-videos. In addition, each clip can be customized with GIFs and emoticons of all kinds. The app, despite being available to many Indian users, is currently being tested. In fact, for the moment, its download is only possible for a limited number of countries and it is not excluded that, it will undergo important changes.

How many songs does Resso contain?

One of the strong points of the application, in addition to the affordable price, is the catalog designed for the country of reference. In fact, for the moment the offer is only available in India, where partnerships have been made with the most famous labels in the country, such as Times Music or T-Series.

According to this logic, the arrival will be preceded by agreements with specific partners, but of course we are talking about something that will happen in the future. It is not yet known if and when the news will arrive in our country. For the moment Spotify and the like can sleep soundly.
