Facebook has added another messaging app to its portfolio. The newly launched app, “Tuned”,which targets couples who want to share private moments with themselves, was developed by Facebook’s New Product Experimentation (NPE) team.
The New Product Experimentation team is saddled with the responsibility of developing new social media products from scratch, and its newest product is ‘Tuned’. The messaging app was developed to allow its users chat, share photos and music, as well as a timeline of shared memories.
While commenting on the messaging app, Facebook’s New Product Experimentation teamdescribed it is “a private space where you and your significant other can just be yourselves.”
The app was launched at a period social media platforms are experiencing a rise in usage, as most of the world population are isolating in their homes out of fear of the Coronavirus pandemic.
As you may well know, the pandemic had informed the decision of governments around the world to declare lockdowns as a way to ensure social distancing during. As a result, many people have taken solace in social media apps for some sort of entertainment, as most working-class now have more time on their hands than ever before.
In the meantime, ‘Tuned’ is not yet available globally. However, according to industry site, Sensor Tower, the messaging app is on Apple’s App Store in the United States and Canada. The app is also currently ranked No. 872 in the United States and No. 550 in Canada in the social networking category.
