Meet JAM with Chrome, a new music Web app for musicians, music enthusiasts and music lovers. JAM with Chrome lets you choose between 19 different instruments, and play all of them right in your browser. It gets even better, though: not only can you play music inside your browser, you can do so with friends.
How does it work? After choosing your instrument, you can invite up to three more friends to jam in Chrome with you. You can all try out the different instruments, switch instruments at any time, and play together like a pro band, or like four people who have never played before. You can each choose between the easy mode, where you can explore the instruments and use auto-play options, to pro mode, where you can use your keyboard to play the instruments.
The instruments are pretty sophisticated, with different octaves and keys you can choose from, and even a metronome with a customizable tempo. Inviting friends to jam with you is easy: Either send them a direct link to your jam session, or share the link on Twitter, Google+ or Facebook.
JAM for Chrome is made for Chrome, naturally, and didn’t really work when I tried it on Firefox, so you may have to switch browsers to use it if Chrome is not your default browser. Even while using Chrome JAM kept telling me I should switch to Chrome, which was weird, but it worked just fine all the same.
Did you get a chance to try Jam with Chrome? What do you think of it?
