(Pocket-lint) – Apple’s music streaming app, Apple Music, will receive an over-the-air update in December that will introduce karaoke-like functionality. Called Apple Music Sing, it lets you play a song and see the lyrics in real time as the song plays and even adjust voice levels so you can sing along. Don’t forget that Spotify has launched a karaoke function in June. But it’s more of a gaming experience that records your voice and rates your performance. Here’s everything you need to know about Apple Music Sing.
What is Apple Music Sing?
Apple Music has expanded its song lyrics experience with a new karaoke-like feature, called Apple Music Sing, that lets subscribers easily sing along to tens of millions of songs. Apple Music Sing consists of two elements: adjustable voices and real-time lyrics. Apple said you can “sing along with the artist’s original vocals, lead, or shuffle over millions of songs from Apple Music’s catalog,” while seeing “multiple views of lyrics” that can help “take lead, duets, backing vocals, and more.”
How to Use Apple Music Sing
Apple Music Sing will be available later this month for Apple Music subscribers worldwide. To find out if it’s available to you right now, open the latest version of the Apple Music app and choose a song to listen to. While the song is playing, you’ll see a lyrics button in the bottom navigation bar (it’s a quote symbol in a speech bubble). Tap it to see the lyrics in real time.
You can sing along to the song with animated lyrics that dance to the beat of your voice. Apple said vocals sung simultaneously can animate independently of the main vocal for easy tracking, while multiple singers appear on opposite sides of the screen to make it easier to sing duets or multi-singer tracks. . If you want to adjust the level of vocals in the song, just tap on a lyric and you’ll see the volume slider appear (pictured above – it has a mic symbol with stars). Move the slider down to attenuate vocals.
What devices support Apple Music Sing?
You can use the Apple Music Sing feature in the Apple Music app on the iPhone (iPhone 11 and later), iPad (such as last year’s 9th generation model), and the latest Apple TV 4K. Android devices support real-time lyrics, but will not allow you to adjust vocal levels.
Do all songs work with Apple Music Sing?
No, but Apple said the feature will be available worldwide for “tens of millions” of songs. Apple also plans to share more than 50 playlists with songs “optimized” for the Apple Music Sing feature. Apple did not give a release date, but we can assume that they will arrive in December with Apple Music Sing.
Do I need a subscription to use Sing?
