Facebook's Musical Collaboration App is Now Live in the US

From PC Mag: We're all missing someone right now: a family member, friend, co-worker, bandmate. Well, pine no longer with the rollout of Facebook's Collab for iOS.

The experimental app invites people to come together and make beautiful music—digitally. Open the program to see a feed of collaborations, each featuring three 15-second independent videos, playing in sync.

Users get to play a sort of symphonic Dr. Frankenstein, swiping each row to load a new clip, scrolling until you find the perfect mashup. Mix and match new songs using other people's uploads, or record your own contribution, then share it online through the app or various social media platforms.

"Collab automates the complexity of audio and video syncing so you can easily produce a final composition you love," product lead Brittany Mennuti wrote in a blog announcement. "With Collab, you feel like you're jamming with the band from the comfort of your bedroom. The most important factor: no musical experience is required—if you can swipe, you can create a collab."
