Facebook launches Lasso, its competitor to TikTok

Facebook last night launched Lasso, its competitor to the widely popular TikTok short-video service. Lasso will let anyone create and share short videos with fun filters and effects. Users can follow creators, search hashtags, discover popular viral video trends and join in by putting your own spin on them.

Lasso features:

  • Get high-quality video editing tools, effects, text on video tools, music and more from the in-app camera.
  • Lasso’s music library is one of the biggest. From trending pop hits to vintage classics, you’ll find whatever song you need to take your videos to the next level.
  • Lasso lets you know which hashtags are trending or going viral and which ones might be trending soon. Be one of the first people to discover a new trend or one of the first to create and share video for it!
  • Lasso seamlessly connects to Facebook so you can post your videos to your story with a single tap. Whether you want your video to show on all your social profiles or just in one place, you have control over what you share and where it goes.

Download it here from Google Play Store and here from Apple App Store.
