Although the idea behind Collab is similar to TikTok, there are also some differences. The program will allow users to link three different videos together and also let them post single videos on the platform. These videos will be visible to a public “Collaborative” stream, where users can watch and play alongside them. Also Read – Attention! Scammers using duplicate accounts for rogue Facebook

According to The Verge, the Collab app is available for free at the Apple App Store and can be downloaded. It has to be in the Google Play store as well. To that end, interested people should understand that the app is not yet available in India, nor in the Apple store or Google Play store.

Post the ban on TikTok program in India, a number of short video platforms created in India have been developed. The TikTok program was banned in India earlier this year and it is not yet available in the country. There were words to ban the program also in the United States due to security and privacy issues.

Recently we have seen Facebook launch Instagram reels in India along with a number of other markets to face similar to TikTok. Reels gained great popularity in the country and were partially able to replace TikTok. Especially Reels is part of the main Instagram app and it is not a separate app.
