TikTok parent looks to have acquired AI music startup JukeDeck

TikTok parent looks to have acquired AI music startup JukeDeck. The company, JukeDeck, developed an AI-powered tool that automatically generates music and lets users adjust the tempo, length, and where it climaxes. Analysts see the tool being used by TikTok users to further customize the sync between their 15-second videos and the background music. More users opting for the royalty-free generated music also reduces TikTok’s licensing fees charged by music labels for use of their popular songs. The Verge
