The new experiment lets you create live music with up to three people in different locations.

Google has released a new Chrome Experiment that lets users compose songs with up to three friends in different locations. ‘JAM with Chrome‘ is an interactive web app that enables you to play music together in real-time. It uses HTML5 features such as the Web Audio API, Websockets, Canvas, and CSS3.

You can choose from 19 different instruments including acoustic guitars, drum kits, and keyboards, and you can switch instruments whenever you like. There is a default “easy mode” that lets you experiment by clicking individual strings, drum pads or keys, and a “pro mode” for playing any instrument using your keyboard. Invite friends to join your jam session via the sharing buttons on the site. Check out the video below to see “Keyboard Cat” jamming with his friends:
