The most valued startup in the world, the Chinese ByteDance, thanks to the success achieved so far with TikTok puts a foot in the music streaming market passing by the launch of resso. It is its app-platform, currently only intended for the territories of India and Indonesia. The arrival was anticipated last month by the appearance on the Net of the first rumors.
ByteDance: after TikTok, the music of Resso
In countries where the service is active, users can subscribe to subscription monthly from the equivalent cost to 1.53 euros thus accessing a catalog of tracks to listen to in streaming or to download in the internal memory of the smartphone to then be played in offline mode. There is no shortage of features such as displaying the texts synchronized with the progress of the songs, the comments that each member of the community can associate with each piece and the possibility of generating animated GIFs or videos to be shared then on the social message boards.
The catalog is currently composed of what is offered by the licenses signed with the Indian T-Series and with Times Music. It is not in any case to exclude the hypothesis that negotiations have already been started with major record companies (Warner, Universal and Sony) in order to extend the scope of Resso's action internationally, thus going to annoy Spotify, Apple Music and the other protagonists of an increasingly saturated sector of offers.
THE'application, in beta for several months, is now available for download on Android is iOS. The slogan chosen for the platform's debut is "Tune in Together".
