Apple Music has announced a new karaoke feature with adjustable vocals and real-time lyrics. Meet Apple Music Sing. 

Apple says the new feature offers multiple lyric views depending on the device and helps fans take the lead, perform duets, sing backup, and more. The feature will be available to Apple Music subscribers later this month and can be accessed on iPhone, iPad, and the new Apple TV 4K.

“Apple Music’s lyrics experience is consistently one of the most popular features on our service,” says Oliver Schusser, Apple’s Vice President of Apple Music and Beats. “We already know our users all over the world love to follow along to their favorite songs, so we wanted to evolve this offering even further to enable even more engagement around music through singing. It’s really a lot of fun; our customers are going to love it.”

Apple Music Sing Features

  • Adjustable Vocals | Users can control a song’s vocal levels to take the lead or mix it up on millions of tracks in the Apple Music catalog.
  • Real-time lyrics | Users can sing along to their favorite songs with animated lyrics that dance to the rhythm.
  • Background vocals | Vocal lines sung simultaneously can animate independently of the main vocals to make it easier for users to follow.
  • Duet view | Multiple vocalists show on opposite sites of the screen to make duets or multi-singer tracks easier to sing along to.

To celebrate the new feature, Apple is also launching 50 dedicated companion playlists. Each of these playlists is loaded with songs that are fully optimized for the new Apple Music Sing experience, from duets, choruses, anthems, and many more. While the feature is rolling out in the United States now, it will be available to Apple Music worldwide subscribers later this month. The new karaoke features put it on par with Spotify’s karaoke offering.
