It is said that, together with Collab, the social networking giant wants to take over TikTok, one of the most popular short video applications available globally.

While the idea behind Collab is similar to TikTok, there are some differences. The app will allow users to club three different videos together and also allow them to post individual videos on the platform. These videos will be visible to a public “Collab” feed, where users can view and play them together. Read also – Beware! Fraudsters who use duplicate accounts for fraud on Facebook

According to The Verge, the Collab app is available for free on the Apple App Store and can be downloaded. It should also be available in the Google Play Store. In this note, interested parties should understand that the app is not yet available in India, either in the Apple app store or in the Google Play store.

Post the ban on TikTok in India, several short video platforms made in India have been developed. The TikTok application was banned in India earlier this year and is not yet available in the country. There have been words to ban the application in the United States as well, due to security and privacy issues.

Recently, we saw that Facebook launched Instagram Reels in India along with several other markets to take on tastes like TikTok. Mulinete gained widespread popularity in the country and partially managed to replace TikTok. In particular, Reels is part of the main Instagram app and is not a separate app.
