    TikTok is experimenting with a feature that uses AI to create songs based on prompts

    Song Creates Lyrics Based on Text Prompts That are Then Paired with Music From a Pre-Saved Catalogue Created Within TikTok

    TikTok is testing a new “AI Song” feature that uses AI to create songs based on prompts that users enter, the company confirmed to TechCrunch. AI Song is an experimental feature and is currently only available to a select number of users. The feature is designed to be used for fun, not for trying to create the next viral song.

    The company told TechCrunch that AI Song uses Bloom, a large language model, to create lyrics based on text prompts. The lyrics are then paired with music from a pre-saved catalogue created within TikTok.

    Meta Says Its AI Tools Boost Ad Campaigns’ Returns by 32%

    Ads Using AI Also Reduced the Cost of Acquisition by About 17%

    Ads running on Meta Platforms Inc.’s apps saw return on spending increase by an average of 32% with the help of artificial intelligence, global business group head Nicola Mendelsohn said.

    Ads using AI also reduced the cost of acquisition by about 17%, Mendelsohn said in an interview with Bloomberg Television from the World Economic Forum in Davos on Thursday.

    The AI tools also simplified the process of creating campaigns. While in the past, it might have taken advertisers 15 to 30 steps to set up a campaign, “you can do it in one button now,” she said.

    The Information

    People are watching longer TikToks. What does that mean for competition with YouTube?

    TikTok Users Are Spending Half Their Time Watching Videos 1 minute In Length or Longer

    That longer attention span is good news for creators, who benefit from diversifying their audiences across platforms so they’re not beholden to a single company or algorithm. Creators may be open to cross-posting on both YouTube and TikTok.
