There’s great news for all music lovers with an iOS device. Apple has recently launched a new karaoke feature called Apple Music Sing with iOS 16.2. It can be used by both iPhone and iPad users.
It’s a fun feature that lets you sing your favorite track following the lyrics shown in real-time. To know more about it, give this post a read.
What is Apple Music Sing?
Apple Music Sing is a newly added feature that allows you to sing along to your favorite tracks with real-time lyrics. It also lets you control the vocals’ volume.
This feature uses advanced on-device machine-learning technology that separates the background music and the vocals in real-time. When playing a track, you will have to open the lyrics section and select the Karaoke button to access the controls for the vocals’ volume. It should be noted that Apple Music Sing doesn’t completely remove the vocals. It only allows you to lower the volumes to the lowest level.
Apple Music Sing is launched in iOS 16.2 and is available for iPhone and later versions. It is also supported by iPadOS 16.2 and tvOS 16.2.
