Both on and off our platform, we're always looking for new ways to enable self-expression, creativity, and connection among the TikTok community. When we launched our TikTok for Developers program, we set out to create innovative tools for third-party apps to integrate with TikTok and provide users more features to create and share amazing content. Today, we're excited to introduce the new Sound and Login Kits for TikTok, which will help third-party apps create more frictionless sharing and authentication experiences for their users. The Software Development Kits (SDKs) are now available for mobile, web, and console applications globally.
"As TikTok becomes increasingly engrained in culture, more third-party apps across a variety of categories and use cases are looking to tap into our community on their own platforms. Through the Sound Kit and Login Kit for TikTok, we're providing seamless integration solutions that help developers expand their reach, increase exposure for creators, and empower our community to showcase their content on other platforms." - Isaac Bess, Global Head of Distribution Partnerships, TikTok
We're excited to make it even easier for the community to express themselves and share their creativity with others. Here's more about the new kits and our partners from around the world that have integrated them into their platforms.
The Sound Kit allows creators and artists to seamlessly bring original sounds and music from third-party apps into the TikTok ecosystem. Audio is integral to the TikTok experience and offers endless possibilities for collaboration and inspiration among the community. Through the Sound Kit, we're excited to help creators reach new fans on TikTok and make their original sounds even more shareable.
Check out the amazing third-party apps that will be integrating with the Sound Kit and helping their users share their original audio creations with the TikTok community:
- Audiobridge: A simple, mobile, multi-track recording studio in your pocket.
- LANDR: A platform that empowers artists with a suite of music creation, collaboration and distribution tools.
- Rapchat: The leading app for hip hop artists to create music and get discovered.
- Yourdio: Create and share your own unique soundtracks to TikTok in just three steps.
“TikTok has built a global platform for creators to share their work and get inspired, and LANDR’s mission is to empower musicians to create, collaborate and be heard. To give our community the ability to seamlessly share their work on TikTok is such a perfect fit. That’s why we’re so excited to be an early partner in this program.” - Pascal Pilon, CEO & Founder, LANDR
Through the Login Kit, users can sign into third-party apps quickly and securely through their TikTok login credentials. Users can also add their TikTok videos, giving them additional avenues to showcase their creativity and bringing a new and engaging ecosystem of content to these platforms.
