Google launches ‘Jam with Chrome’, an experimental Web app to play virtual instruments with friends

Google

Straight out of Google’s Creative Lab comes Jam with Chrome, an experimental, interactive Web app that lets friends jam together from different locations…directly from their (Chrome) browser. Tapping the latest Web tech, including HTML5-based features such as the Web Audio API, Websockets, Canvas and CSS3, Jam with Chrome lets you select nineteen different instruments, including guitars, drums and keyboards. You can switch between them at will. The app defaults to ‘Easy’ mode, and there are four different auto-play functions that puts the instruments in the hands of the machines, while pro mode lets you control any of the musical tools with your keyboard. You can invite up to three other friends to participate in your Jam.
