According to a report published by the Financial Times on Sunday, the Beijing-headquartered company ByteDance is in talks with major music labels like Universal, Sony, and Warner Music to include their content in an upcoming but currently unnamed subscription streaming service.

In addition to music, this platform would have a library of short video clips that could be searched for, synced with music, and then shared with friends.

Though pricing of the potential service has not yet been revealed, it will reportedly cost less than Spotify's and Apple's monthly US music subscriptions.

According to the Financial Times, the service could potentially launch as soon as December in countries like Brazil, India, and Indonesia. If all goes according to ByteDance's plans in said emerging markets, it will launch in the US, as well.
