Many songs, such as Lil Nas X's “Old Town Road” and Megan Thee Stallion's “Savage,” went viral on TikTok, but tracking down their titles wasn't as easy, though, a useful new tool. It's out this week, so you can finally say goodbye to the days of feverishly searching for lyrics on Google.

With the help of this program, you can avoid searching for those catchy songs from TikTok videos by saving them directly to your Spotify account.

Here's how you can try the new tool.

“Add music to app” is a new tool that TikTok revealed this week.

It allows you to instantly save songs from TikTok to your preferred music streaming service like Spotify or Amazon Music as the name implies.

“TikTok is already the world's most powerful platform for music discovery and promotion, helping artists connect with our global community to engage with their music,” said Ole Obermann, TikTok's global head of music business development.

“Adding music to the app takes this process one step further and creates a direct link between discovery on TikTok and consumption on the music streaming service.”

To use the new feature, simply open the TikTok app and navigate until you find the video you want to download music from.

At the bottom of the video, next to the track data, there should now be a new “Add Song”.

When you tap on it, a pop-up will appear asking you to choose your favorite music streaming provider.

Choose between Spotify and Amazon Music, then specify whether you want to add the song to your default, newly created, or existing playlist.

Stan Garmark, vice president, global head of customer experience at Spotify, added: “No matter where you are or what moment you're in, we want to create less work to get you the audio you love.”

“That means being wherever our customers are and creating seamless ways to store songs on Spotify for them to enjoy when and how they choose to listen.”

The new tool is now available in the US and UK, with a wider rollout on the horizon.
