Apple today announced Apple Music Sing, a new feature in Apple Music that lets users sing their favorite songs with adjustable vocals and more.


Apple Music Sing will utilize Apple Music's real-time lyrics to allow users to sing to their favorite songs using adjustable vocals, background vocals, and duet view to allow more than one singer.
Apple Music Sing includes:
  • Adjustable vocals: Users now have control over a song’s vocal levels. They can sing with the original artist vocals, take the lead, or mix it up on millions of songs in the Apple Music catalog.
  • Real-time lyrics: Users can sing along to their favorite songs with animated lyrics that dance to the rhythm of the vocals.
  • Background vocals: Vocal lines sung simultaneously can animate independently from the main vocals to make it easier for users to follow.
  • Duet view: Multiple vocalists show on opposite sides of the screen to make duets or multi-singer tracks easy to sing along to.
As part of the new feature, Apple Music will also be debuting over 50 new playlists focused on "all of the epic songs, duets, choruses, and anthems that have been compelling people all around the world to sing."


Apple Music Sing will be available on iPhone, iPad, and the new Apple TV 4K and will be available to Apple Music subscribers worldwide later this month at no additional charge.

Haha, I was cleaning today and found a SingStar disc. Remember when that was all the craze?

This will be fun to try. hopefully it supports all tracks with synced lyrics.

Will it allow for microphone input though? I think this is a great idea, but in order to have a karaoke night, you need a way for your vocals to come out of the same speakers as the music. I don't see any mention of this in the article.

Requires iPhone 12 or newer :troll:
Not compatible on any MacBooks

Im expecting this in iOS 16.2 Beta 5 tbh, which will come today.

Would be cool if Apple could allow song producers to upload versions of their songs without the vocals in addition to slightly removing the vocals.
