Facebook BARS App Introduced

The new Facebook BARS app comes from the Facebook New Product Experimentation (NPE) team and is currently in closed beta testing. The venture was initiated during the coronavirus outbreak, and is one of the reasons for bringing it out, says BARS app Community Manager, DJ Iyer.

DJ Iyer, who is also a hip-hop songwriter and ghostwriter under the alias D-Lucks said: "On top of that, the global pandemic shut down live performances where we often create and share our work. So, along with a group of aspiring rappers, we've been building BARS: a place for aspiring rappers to create and share their art."

Facebook BARS App Features

The first and most distinct feature of the Facebook BARS app is its specificity. Unlike short video apps like TikTok, BARS is custom-made keeping rappers in mind. The app offers pre-recorded beats that can make words into a rap song. Users also get rhyme and rhythmic dictionaries to keep their flow going.

Users can explore features like Challenge mode, audio and visual filters, Clean, AutoTune, Imaginary Friends, and AM Radio, and so on. Once you're done with your rap video, you can save it on your Camera Roll and share it on social media platforms.
