Apple Music Sing feature was introduced a few days back. Although Apple is a company known for its hardware products like the iPhone, iPad, Mac, and more, some software services such as Apple Music, iCloud, etc are popular across the globe. Apple Music is Apple’s subscription-based music streaming service and it competes against the likes of YouTube Music, Spotify, and more.
The new Apple Music Sing feature allows users not only to listen to the song but, also gives them the ability to sing along with adjustable vocals and real-time lyrics. This new feature acts as Karaoke and will offer multiple lyric views to help users perform duets, sing backup, and more. All these features are integrated into Apple Music’s lyrics experience.
In this guide, let’s take a look at the Apple Music Sing feature in detail. First, we will explain what exactly this feature means and then we will move on to the compatible devices, rollout timeline and more.
Apple Music Sing Features Explained
Before we get started with features, first let us understand what is Music Sing. In simple terms, Apple Music Sing shows users/listeners the lyrics of the song that’s being played on Apple Music on the screen. This is available for millions of songs across the globe. This feature will be fun to use, especially during parties.
Apple Music is adding over 50 dedicated Sing playlists, containing songs, choruses and anthems. Now, let’s take a look at some of the key features of the Music Sing:
This feature gives Apple Music Sing more control and precise timing as users will have full control over the music and vocals. A user can sing with the original artist’s vocals, take the lead, or mix it up on millions of songs in Apple Music. All these can be controlled with a slider.
With Music Sing, this comes in as the most basic and essential feature. Users will be able to get lyrics in real time with just one tap. The lyrics will appear for songs with some animation, which takes the experience one step ahead. The lyrics will dance to the rhythm of the vocals.
Another key feature is the background vocals. With this, the vocal lines sung simultaneously can animate independently from the main vocals to make it easier for users to follow the background vocals as well.
This duet view feature allows multiple vocalists on opposite sides of the screen to make duets or multi-singer tracks easy to sing along to.
Apple Music Sing Roll Out Timeline
According to Apple, the Music Sing will be available later this month for all Apple Music subscribers globally. This means, we can expect the feature to roll out towards the end of this month, which also happens to be the time of Christmas and New Year.
As of now, the feature is available on iOS 16.2 beta and the stable version will get the same in the next couple of weeks.
Apple Music Sing Compatible Devices
