The Facebook BARS app is the company’s new effort to compete with TikTok, this time by concentrating on young rappers. The latest app is currently in the private test phase and was created by Facebook’s New Product Experimentation (NPE) R&D team. Utilizing built-in software, owners of Facebook’s BARS application can build and upload rap songs. The NPE team claims that to produce content while using the BARS application, consumers do not need any structured rap expertise.
More About The Video Sharing BARS App :
Unlike many other short-video sharing applications, Facebook’s BARS is created specifically for rapping-style video clips. It comes with pre-recorded beats that turn the words into professional-sounding raps. To keep the rhythm alive, the app uses a wordplay vocabulary to recommend lyrics. There’s also a Challenge Mode, which allows everyone to freestyle while also offering auto-suggested expression prompts.
In a press release, BARS Group Manager DJ Iyer, who used to be a hip-hop lyricist and scriptwriter under the pseudonym D-Lucks, said that many of the primary reasons for creating the BARS app were really the coronavirus epidemic. He said.
“I know access to high-priced recording studios and production equipment can be limited for aspiring rappers. On top of that, the global pandemic shut down live performances where we often create and share our work,” he said. “So, along with a group of aspiring rappers, we’ve been building BARS: a place for aspiring rappers to create and share their art.”
The Facebook BARS application also offers a number of visual and audio filters to boost your rap material after you have finished your lyrics and flow. You can receive preloaded software for modifying the voice quality in videos such as Tidy, AutoTune, Imaginary Friends, and AM Radio. The BARS application allows guests to export and saves rap songs to their Camera Roll after they finish optimizing them. They will also post the posts on social media platforms with others. The BARS software can be downloaded from the US App Store in Apple and can only be reached first by a select number of iOS users. The waitlist in the app may also be registered.
So, it can be said that the launch of this application, can prove quite beneficial for Facebook in the longer run. But, for now, we should take a look at how the app is received by the general public as not everyone likes to rap or likes to listen to rap.
