Lasso was first reported as in development in late October and now Facebook has finally released it. Lasso allows users to record themselves dancing and lip-syncing to music just like TikTok and lets users record short clips like Vines.
Lasso is Facebook’s latest bid to bring back the teens which social media giant platform has lost its hold over. In 2018, only half of the teens say they still use Facebook, compared to 4 years back.
The company said in a statement,
“Lasso is a new standalone app for short-form, entertaining videos from comedy to beauty to fitness and more. We’re excited about the potential here, and we’ll be gathering feedback from people and creators.”

Once downloaded, Lasso allows you to sign in with Instagram or create an account using the Facebook account. The Lasso can be shared as Facebook and Instagram stories directly from the app.
