TikTok partners with music streamer Audius to create TikTok Sounds, report says

TikTok is partnering with Audius, a streaming platform for musicians, to give artists a new way to upload their music, according to a report Monday from Rolling Stone. TikTok Sounds, the new feature from the partnership, will reportedly let artists export songs already housed on Audius to TikTok with one click.

Forrest Browning, an Audius co-founder and chief product officer, told Rolling Stone that the current process to get music onto TikTok isn't efficient. TikTok and Audius didn't immediately respond to CNET's request for comment.

As of last fall, TikTok has 732 million users logging an average of 89 minutes per day on the app, according to a report from Music Business Worldwide. In July, TikTok released a study showing 75% of its US users discover new artists on the platform.
