Take the lead, perform duets, sing backup, and more!

Apple has announced Apple Music Sing, a new feature that allows users to sing along to their favourite songs with adjustable vocals and real-time lyrics. 

Apple Music Sing offers multiple lyric views to help fans take the lead, perform duets, sing backup and more – all integrated within Apple Music’s lyrics experience.

Apple Music Sing includes:

  • Adjustable vocals: Users now have control over a song’s vocal levels. They can decide whether to sing with the original artist vocals, take the lead or mix it up, on millions of songs in the Apple Music catalogue.
  • Real-time lyrics: Users can sing along to their favourite songs with even more precise timing. On screen, Apple Music will highlight the exact moment being sung, as if the words are dancing 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. 

Apple Music Sing will be available later this month to Apple Music subscribers worldwide, and can be enjoyed on iPhone, iPad, and the new Apple TV 4K. The feature is not available for Apple Music Voice Plan subscribers. 

Apple Music will also be launching a suite of more than 50 dedicated companion playlists featuring all of the epic songs, duets, choruses and anthems that have been compelling people all around the world to sing – fully optimised for the Apple Music Sing experience.

“Apple Music’s lyrics experience is consistently one of the most popular features on our service,” said 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 favourite 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.”
