JAM with Chrome

AM with Chrome, which launched November 8 via the Official Google Blog, allows site visitors to select from a range of illustrated instruments and connect with up to three of their friends for real-time jam sessions. Visitors to the site encounter a selection of dynamic, adjustable instruments, ranging from keyboards to guitars to drums, which were designed to mesh with Google’s signature look. A combination of HTML, Javascript graphics and the Web Audio API bring the experience to life and show off the unique features of the Chrome browser. Users can control the instrument and its settings via computer keyboard or by pointing and dragging their mouse, depending on the difficulty level at which they’re playing. A chat box gives the digital musicians an easy way to communicate with their friends to plan out their set list.
