Facebook’s new app for couples.
Facebook has released a new app for couples to share a private space online, “event when you’re apart.” Tuned allows couples to share photos, notes, cards, voice memos, music from Spotfify and even their moods. There’s also a daily diary feature.
Facebook calls it “a private space where you and your significant other can just be yourselves.” It’s a digital scrapbook-style feed private to each couple, and includes custom reactions and stickers.
“With Tuned, you can be as mushy, quirky, and silly as you are together in person, even when you’re apart,” NPE Team by Facebook, which created Tuned, says on the App Store. While the app is billed as being private, Facebook didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on whether it’s encrypted like WhatsApp, or whether data is shared with Facebook and would be used to serve advertising.
Tuned is available for free on the App Store for iPhone and iPad.
It comes at a time when many couples might be separated due to social distancing guidelines during the spread of the coronavirus.
