Facebook (FB - Free Report) has launched an app called Tuned, which is aimed at couples who want to create an exclusive chat space and have a timeline of shared memories between them especially those who are separated due to the new social distancing norms attributed to coronavirus outbreak, per The Information Report.
Tuned was recently made available for download on Apple’s (AAPL - Free Report) App Store in the United States and Canada. Notably, the app does not require a Facebook account for login although users are subject to Facebook’s data rules. User information can be used for ad targeting.
Billed as a ‘private space’ for couples to connect, the app connects to Spotify (SPOT - Free Report) for music sharing, and a couple can send each other photos, notes, cards, create digital scrapbooks and voice memos. They can also use custom stickers and reactions.
Notably, Tuned has been created by Facebook’s New Product Experimentation team formed last year, which released a meme-making app called Whale and a Pinterest (PINS - Free Report) competitor named Hobbi two months ago.
Tuned is currently ranked #872 in the Unites States and # 550 in Canada in the social networking category according to Sensor Tower report.
