It’s a sad day for Musical.ly users as our favorite video creation and live broadcasting app joins the ranks of fallen social media apps.
Since its launch in 2014, Musical.ly grew from just a lip-syncing app where you can sing-along to your favorite songs to a video creation and broadcasting app with tons of features for users to enjoy. However, internet giant Beijing Bytedance Technology announced yesterday that Musical.ly will be shut down and will be merged under their own app, TikTok.
Bytedance has already acquired Musical.ly back in November 2017 in a reported $800M-$1B deal, so the move to finally consolidate Musical.ly’s users and shut down the app wasn’t unprecedented.
Some Musical.ly users expressed their sadness using Twitter over the loss of their favorite video creation app.
what more hurtful than a breakup? seeing your favorite app die. #ripmusically

Musically why you change your name to @tiktok?? #Musically was such a perfect & classic name! I really hope you do keep everything the same as you said you will. RIP Musically. #RIPMusically #TikTok #Why

According to Bytedance, they hope that the merger between the two of the fastest-growing video apps together would create a global video powerhouse app. Starting this month, Musical.ly users will be migrated to the new TikTok app. The new & improved TikTok app will also incorporate the best and most popular features from both apps.
