Google released a new interactive web application today dubbed JAM with Chrome that enables friends in different locations to play music together in the Chrome browser on their computers.
"Invite up to three friends in different locations to join your JAM via the sharing buttons on the site."
"When you enter the site, you can choose from a selection of 19 different instruments, from acoustic and bass guitars to drum kits and keyboards. Once you get playing, you can switch instruments as often and as many times as you like. In the default "easy mode" you can experiment by clicking individual strings, drum pads or keys, or you can play around with the four different autoplay functions and let the machines do the work. Switch to "pro mode" to play any instrument using your keyboard," explains Google.
"JAM with Chrome is a Chrome Experiment that uses the latest modern web technologies, including HTML5 features such as the Web Audio API, Websockets, Canvas and CSS3," Google posted. For more detailed information, check out here.

This Friday, November 9, is the 23rd anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall (on November 9, 1989). To mark this turning point in history, Google launched a collection of online exhibitions under the theme of The Fall of the Iron Curtain.
