Collab, a Facebook app that allows users to collaborate on music videos, is now available to all iOS users. The app allows users to create short-form music videos by combining up to three independent videos. So, for example, three musicians could each play a different part of a song and combine them into one video. But each video that’s created is also posted to a public “Collab” feed, where people can view and play along with it if they choose.
If you stumble across a musician whose work you enjoy, you can favorite them and receive notifications whenever they upload a video. Of course, you can add your own clips to any collaboration or create your own project to which others can contribute.
Just like TikTok, you can also just browse Collab and discover new music/artists if you don’t want to join in on the creative process. Among the already existing Collab users are recording artists as well as those just wanting to dabble.
The app isn’t directly integrated with Facebook (yet, at least), but you can export the finished products to your Instagram story (as well as other platforms, including TikTok) via iOS share sheet.
Collab is free on the App Store, and you can download it today.
