Collab, an application for making group music videos

Collab has only launched on the US App Store at the moment. Picture:

First released in beta earlier this year, Facebook’s Collab mobile app is now available on iOS for everyone in the US, allowing friends and group members to create short music videos and sync sequences.

Collab is a tool that promises users the ability to create music videos from anywhere and with anyone. If this application can be used by any Internet user, musicians may find it particularly practical.

The idea is to be able to collaborate on your production with several people, with three separate videos that play in unison. Like the loops that make TikTok so popular, each sequence cannot exceed 15 seconds. The idea is to play these videos in a synchronized way, ideally a singer and two musicians.

At any time, it is possible to drag one of the three videos and scroll it to replace it with another, until the perfect mashup is found. This can result in perfectly matched sequences. It is also possible to record your own clips and share them with the Facebook community. The more contributors that record footage, the more possibilities there will be.

After launching its Instagram Reels, the “aging” social network Facebook is trying to seduce younger generations with this fun app that offers many musical possibilities. Note that Collab has only launched in the United States and is currently only accessible through the Apple App Store. The rest of the world and non-Apple users will have to wait a while to try it out. CC
