Facebook has launched the ‘Calab’ app to compete with TickTock


Facebook’s New Product Testing (NPE) team is testing a new app these days. In fact it is inspired by the short music video app TickTock, called ‘Collab’. At the moment, however, this application is only available for iOS invite-only beta version users. The NPE claims in its note that users can create their own videos in the Colab app, even mix and match the video. TickTalk provides the same features for its users, so that they sync existing videos on this platform. However, on this platform users can sync up to three videos at a time instead of two.

Facebook’s NPE team has published them Note: It also mentions that the Colab app was created specifically for people to pull their creative superpowers during coronavirus lockdown.

Like TickTock, Colab allows users to create videos and synchronize other users’ existing videos by aligning them properly. However, instead of two vertical videos on TickTick, users can sync up to three videos at a time in landscape mode, but the final video will only be vertical.

After creating a video on Collab, users will be able to share it on other social media platforms. The company says that once the Collab video is created, you publish it so that other users can watch and mix the video and match it to that video. You can share videos created on this platform on other social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook Story etc.

However, it is not yet clear whether it will be mandatory to create an account to watch videos in this app or whether the video can be viewed without creating an account like TickTock.

Currently, this application is only available to Invite-Beta users. However, you can try the beta version of the app by signing up on the NPE website.
