Facebook has launched a new app Lasso that lets you create short, fun videos and share them with friends. Integrated with video-editing tools, Lasso allows users to add text as well as music to their videos just like TikTok app does. It is available for both Android and iOS for uses in the US as of now and will be rolled out to more countries soon.
With Lasso, users can create and share short videos with fun effects and discover popular video trends and join in by putting your own spin on them.
“Once you've found a type of video that's trending, whether it's #comedy or #fail, you can use the in-app camera to put your own spin on it with special effects, music and editing tools. Add hashtags to your video to share it with the world! You can also add your videos directly to your Facebook story,” Facebook said.
With vast music library, from pop hits to vintage classics, you'll find whatever song you need to take your videos to the next level in Lasso. Get high-quality video editing tools, effects, text on video tools, music and more from the in-app camera.
The app also lets you know which hashtags are trending and which ones might be soon. The app connects directly to Facebook so you can post your videos to your story with a single tap.
“Whether you want your video to show on all your social profiles or just in one place, you have control over what you share and where it goes,” the company added.
