According to the latest news, Facebook has publicly launched Collab experimental music mixing app. Collab is a free app and it can be downloaded from the App Store from today.
The app was first launched as an invite only beta version back in May this year. The collab app allows users to create short music videos by combining up to three independent videos.
For an example, suppose three singers want to make a song together. Each of the three singers will be able to play a different part of a song and combine them into one video. However, each video that is created is also posted to a public “Collab” feed. From the public feed, any user will be able to play the song.
In simple words, you will be able to record one part, then mix it with two other parts you find on the Collab feed that other people have recorded or you can also mix other people’s videos together. The best part is, Facebook said that every user will be properly credited for their contributions.
The collab application comes with plenty in app tools to sync the parts together so you won’t have to worry about lining all the videos up. Facebook said, “We make sure that as you swipe, the videos play at exactly the right moment to be in sync.”
Note that this app is not yet directly integrated with Facebook but you will be able to export the finished products to your Instagram story. If you want, you will also be able to share it on other social media platforms such as TikTok via the iOS share sheet.
