When it comes to obsessive smartphone usage, teenagers are the only segment who rock the charts. From clicking pictures and posting on social media, to creating live videos and engaging their followers, teens know how to use their smartphone to its best potential. Facebook has recently released a new video music app for teens known as Lasso which is said to set some direct rivalry goals to apps like TikTok and Musical.ly
Everything Cool and More…
On Lasso, users can record their videos, lip-sync on their favorite music and dialogues, dance on popular songs, entertain and everything else that catches the attention of youth. The app’s interface is specifically designed to catch teen’s attention where they can spend their entire day making videos and conversing with their friends and followers. Lasso is designed by Facebook Watch team under the supervision of lead product designer Brady Voss.
Sources have stated, that Facebook is working on creating this app since 2016 and it became one sure deal when earlier this year Facebook secured their licensing deal with giant music labels. The app is currently available in the U.S for iOS and Android platform and will be soon rolled out to other countries as well. Lasso is one cool initiative by Facebook in the lip-sync segment and we hope that it gets better and entertaining with time.
