Facebookâ€™s NPE team has announced a new app called Collab with a refreshed take on music creation. The announcement comes merely a couple of days after the team announced its group audio calling solution named CatchUp.
Collab Is Music Collaboration App
Collab lets creators shareÂ TikTok-like short-form music videos. TheÂ app combines a total of three videosÂ that could either be all yours or as a collaboration with others. Other Collab users can use your videos for collaborating with your piece.
â€œWith the app, you can create your own arrangement by adding in your own recording or by swiping and discovering an arrangement to complete your composition.â€,Â explains Facebook.
After creating collabs, you can easily publish them across other social media platforms to share your creation with your friends and family.Â Even if youâ€™re not interested to upload your original videos, you can browse the collection of Collab videos posted by others and mix & match the ones you think goes in sync to create a new Collab video.
Collab is currentlyÂ available as an invite-only beta release in the U.S. and Canada for iOS users. There is no word on Collabâ€™s availability for Android just yet.Â Facebook mentions it has accelerated the launch of Collab due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic situation. This explains why it is currently following an invite-only model.
Facebook says it will be opening up invites in batches. If youâ€™re interested to use Collab, you mayÂ join the waitlist. It will be interesting to see if Collab manages to steal the spotlight from TikTok and other short-form video platforms.
