Facebook introduces another Tik Tok-rival for iOS users known as Collab. This new iOS app will let users make and mix music with friends during pandemic. This new experimental app for making collective music videos is now available via App Store in the US. This new app is a part of Facebook’s app oriented New Product Experimentation (NPE) team, the app permits the users to make short-form music videos by merging up to three independent videos of 15-seconds time frame.

As per the report in TechCrunch, the users can either make a Collab by playing along with another person’s video or simply swipe on one of the three rows to select a different video to put into the mix from those which are available.

Later on Monday, the report added “As you discover musicians you like to play along with, you can favourite them in the app to be notified when they post new clips. This also personalised the main feed.” 

Since May this year, Facebook during its Beta testing period has made various enhancements to the audio-syncing abilities and other technical features of the app.

There is a feature similar to TikTok- in which once a Collab is created, users can publish it for others to watch, mix and match further. Also, users can share the music creation over Instagram, Facebook Stories or any other platform.

Previously also Facebook, the social networking giant has aimed to take on TikTok with the launch of Reels editing feature on Instagram and the standalone app Lasso to which the company has decided to shut down.

Users can record Reels in a chain of clips one at a time, all at once or using video uploads from your gallery. Users can create and edit 30-seconds multi-clip videos with audio, effects and new creative tools with Reels.
