Jam in Chrome: Play to play music from your browser
Google today released “Jam in Chrome”, a web application that lets you play a virtual instrument from the Browser, and form a band (virtual) with your friends. The company stresses that can be used with people anywhere in the world and in real time.
There are 19 available instruments, including guitars, keyboards and drums, which can be played using the mouse or keyboard.
The virtual band can have up to four. The truth is it’s pretty fun, but it’s more of a game to demonstrate the capabilities of HTML5, using the Web Audio API, WebSockets, Canvas and CSS3.
It is also a way to promote Chrome. Although you can run on other browsers that allow HTML5, the system will prompt needed “modern web technologies” to work well, recommending downloading Google’s browser.
