'Jam with Chrome,' in Google's Latest In-Browser Experiment

Published on .

Garage Band meets Chrome in Google's latest HTML5 experiment, "Jam With Chrome," created out of Google Creative Lab and Tool.

The web application lets you hook up with friends online to play music together, using your keyboard, no matter your musical ability. About 19 instruments are available, and you can switch anytime you want. Experiment in the "easy" mode, and switch to "pro" once you have mastered what keys control what.

The application uses HTML5 features like WebAudio API for high-quality sound, Websockets, Canvas and CSS3, and like other Chrome experiments, serves to show off the Chrome browser's capabilities. Check out what other technology was used here.

Google's last Chrome experiment was "Movi.Kanti.Revo," done in partnership with Cirque du Soleil. That site, termed a "sensory experience," let you use your webcam to inform movements within the Cirque's surreal, virtual world.
