Facebook New Product Experimentation team is now testing a new TikTok inspired app called by the name as Collab for creating short music videos.
This app is available on iOS as an invite-only beta right now. The NPE in the note also claims that the Collab app allows users to create, mix and watch and match original videos, “starting with music.”
Similar to the TikTok, the app allows users to sync existing videos from the platform; moreover, here users can sync three videos simultaneously instead of two.
Facebook NPE Team in the note also states that the Collab app designed to help people “unlock creative superpowers” in the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown.
How does Collab work?
Similar to the TikTok, users on Collab can make videos and further sync it with existing videos of other users to create perfect harmony. Moreover, users here can easily sync three videos in the landscape mode instead of two vertical videos like on TikTok. Although, the final video will still be in vertical.
Users can then share the video on Collab or any other social media channels. “Once you’ve created a collab, you can publish it for others to watch and mix and match further. You can also share yours or others’ creations to the social media channel, Instagram, Facebook Stories, or any other platform, with just a few taps,” the company said.

It is as of now unclear whether the app will require an account to watch the videos of the other users, or it can be used without it just like TikTok.
How to access Collab?
As of now, the app is available as an invite-only beta. Moreover, people can sign up on the NPE website to get their hands on the beta version of the app. It is essential to note that Facebook will be opening up invites in batches, starting with users in Canada and the US.
Furthermore, others can also get the latest information about the Collab app by joining the Collab Beta Private Facebook Group.
Collab is not the company’s first attempt in this arena. The company back in the 208 launched a similar app called by the name Lasso that allowed users to create short videos and record themselves while dancing and lip-syncing to music, similar to TikTok. The app was going to launch in India this year.
