Facebook has just announced the launch of the experimental Facebook music creation application Collab. The application was launched only for the iOS operating system through the Apple App Store. The app was released in a guest-only beta in May and is now available to all iOS users in the US.
Since the first beta test, the company has made several changes to the application based on data entered by the beta testing community. Facebook Collab is a collaboration application that allows users to create, view, and mix and match original music-focused videos.
In a collaboration, there are three independent 15-second videos that are played in sync. The app offers some TikTok competition, while giving users the ability to create collaborative content, even when they are not physically together during COVID time.
Announcing the launch of the Facebook Collab app, the Facebook NPE team said, “Collab automates the complexity of audio and video synchronization so you can easily produce a final composition you love.”
The company claims that in order to use the application, the user does not need any musical training or experience. To create a collaboration, the user just has to swipe on any line to bring a new video that fits well with the user’s composition.
Facebook also claims that they have optimized the experience for a lot of configurations. To make sure they tested it with dozens of headphones and hardware configurations. Users are even allowed to use external audio interfaces to bring music from electronic instruments such as keyboards, guitars and road kits.
