Facebook Introduces TikTok-Inspired 'Collab' App

Facebook’s New Product Experimentation (NPE) team has introduced the TikTok-inspired music collaborating app called Collab. Right now the app is on invited only beta phase and only available for iOS platform. 

Collab will let creators and fans to create, watch, and mix and match original videos, starting with music. Similar to TikTok, the app allows users to sync existing videos from the platform, however, here users can sync three videos simultaneously instead of two.  Also, Collab is for original videos, unlike other apps that allow users to make use of popular songs. You can also share the music creation to Instagram, Facebook Stories, or any other platform.

“Collabs are three independent videos that are playing in sync. 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. No musical experience is required,” Facebook’s NPE team explained in their blog post. 

Right now the app is only available as an invite-only beta. To request access, the iOS users can sign up for the waitlist at here. “We’ll be opening up invites in batches, starting with folks in the US and Canada, as we continue to improve the experience,” said Facebook.
