Tuned, Facebook’s Intimate Experimental App For Couples Launches
Facebook has released a new experimental app for couples to send private messages to each other. The app, called Tuned, encourages couples to create an intimate social network just between them. Tuned allows couples to send messages, exchange music and create a digital scrapbook.
Facebook’s New Product Experimental Team, which focuses on creating new social media from scratch, built the app.
Tuned claims to be “a private space where you and your significant other can just be yourselves”. It, however, does not seem to have the end-to-end encryption of WhatsApp.
“With Tuned, you can be as mushy, quirky, and silly as you are together in person,” the developer says on App Store.
Tuned, however, has the same data policy as Facebook. This allows Facebook to collect data to target advertising at particular users. This could mean users might prefer not to send personal information, private photos or videos using the app.

The app connects to Spotify for music sharing and allows couples to send pictures, notes, cards, and voice memos to one another. Tuned also allow couples to use custom stickers and reactions in their chats. The app is free to use and doesn’t require users to have a Facebook account.
Facebook launched the New Product Experimental Team in June 2019. It had previously built a meme creation tool and an app for saving and organizing photos with similarities to Pinterest.
The Tuned app is free and available only to iOS users in the US and Canada at the moment and does not require a Facebook account to use it.
Perhaps, this is the best time to launch a dating app as millions are staying and working from home as social distancing is being employed to combat the spread of the coronavirus.
