Did you know you can turn your iOS device or Apple TV into a karaoke machine thanks to the Apple Music app? Here’s how to get the Sing feature working as easily as possible.

Sing improves upon Apple Music’s existing lyrics feature by adding adjustable vocal levels allowing you to turn down the original artist’s voice. There are also independently animated background vocals and a duet view that displays two parts of the song on opposite sides of the screen. 

If you’re an Apple Music subscriber follow the instructions below and you’ll be singing along in just a few short steps.

What you’ll need:

Which devices is Apple Music Sing available on?

Apple has only confirmed that Sing will be available on the iPhone, iPad and Apple TV 4K so far, though that doesn’t mean more devices might not be added in the future. 

We’ll have to wait and see whether it launches on other TVs or macOS.

Can I use Sing with an Apple Music Voice plan?

No, you’ll need a full Apple Music subscription to access Apple Music Sing. This includes the Individual, Student and Family plans.
