INTRO: Facebook’s NPE team has today launched a new app it calls 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.
Facebook Launched Short Music Video Collab App
The Collab app lets the creators share TikTok-like short-form music videos. The app combines a total of three videos that could either be all yours or as a collaboration with others. Other Collab users can also use your videos for collaborating with your piece.
“With 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.”, explains Facebook.
You Can Publish Videos On Social Media Platforms
After creating collabs, you can easily publish them all across other social media platforms to share your creation with your friends and family. Even if you are 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 App is currently available as an invite-only beta release in the U.S. and Canada for iOS users. There is no word on Collab’s availability for Android just yet. Facebook mentions it has accelerated the launch of Collab due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic situation. This totally explains why it is currently following an invite-only model.
You Can Join the Waitlist
Facebook says that it will be opening up invites for the application in batches. So If you’re interested to use Collab, then you may join the waitlist. It will be quite interesting to see if Collab manages to steal the spotlight from the TikTok app and other short-form video platforms or not. Till that time we will have to wait and watch for further updates on the latest upcoming application Collab from Facebook.
