Facebook launches Collab app so you can have online jam sessions


If there's one silver lining to what has mostly been a disastrous 2020, it would be the many new ways people have found to work together online. Many companies have been bringing us new updates or platforms to collaborate, and for Facebook one of it is the new Collab app.

Facebook's New Product Experimentation (NPE) team introduced the app in a blog post yesterday. Collab is a new app that's made for music enthusiasts who want a way to make music, even if they can't meet up physically. This also means people from different locations (i.e different countries) can collab. However, the app is only available in the US for iOS users for now.

When you open the app, you'll see a screen with a feed of three 15-second videos that play in sync. You can swipe left or right on any video to switch to a new video for the collab. Of course, you can also add your own video to the collab or create a new collab that the community can contribute to.

Since it's an experimental app, we don't know when Facebook will launch it outside of the US, or add it to the Google Play Store. With that said, is this an app you'd be interested to try? Let us know in the comments and stay tuned to TechNave for more news like this.
