The app offers a private, scrapbook-like feed where you and your partner can creatively express your love, share special moments.

Tuned is now ranked No. 872 in the U.S. and No. 550 in Canada in the social networking category, Sensor Tower said.

Facebook has quietly released Tuned, a new messaging app created to provide a "private space" for couples to connect, reports The Information.

San Francisco: Facebook has quietly launched a new app just for couples who can connect to each other intimately like a personal dating app especially in these social distancing times in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic.

Maxey was stellar for the Wildcats all season long, but he came up particularly big in UK's biggest games. Louisville and the most by a Wildcat in the rivalry since Jodie Meeks score 28 on January 4, 2009.

The app is available for download in the USA and Canada, app analytics firm Sensor Tower tells us.

From what we can see so far, the Tuned app from Facebook pretty much reduces the scope of how we know social media as it is, to include just you and the one you love. Little did we know that he meant a new app, just for couples.

The nature of this may explain why Facebook hasn't even promoted the app yet.

The free-to-use app connects couples using their phone number and doesn't require a Facebook account, although it does comform to Facebook's data policy, which means the information provided in the app could be used for ad targeting. The issue is Facebook doesn't have a default experimentation app anymore, and so these NPE team releases kind of force Facebook to get by with less user data and make judgment calls on how fast functionality can develop when starting from a standstill. We saw the NPE team at work for the first-time last summer and have since released some experimental apps including a meme making app called Whale. In February, the team launched a photo and video sharing app, "Hobbi". These apps are clearly a way for Facebook to experiment with new products or features that could eventually be maintained as standalone apps or be integrated into the Facebook app itself.
