With iOS 16.2, Apple introduced Apple Music Sing, a feature in Apple Music that allows you to sing along to your favorite songs. It is currently available to all Apple Music subscribers worldwide.
If you’re looking for new ways to sing your heart out, this guide will walk you through the process of using Apple Music Sing.
What is Apple Music Sing?
Introduced with iOS 16.2, Apple Music Sing is a feature that lets you sing along to your favorite songs with real-time lyrics. It uses on-device machine-learning algorithms to separate a song’s vocals and background music in real time, allowing you to adjust the volume of vocals so you can focus only on your voice.
Apple Music Sing Requirements
While Apple Music Sing is not available on all Apple devices, most users can make use of this feature. Still, there are some requirements you’ll need to meet before you can start singing. First of all, these are the devices that support Apple Music Sing.
At the time of writing, Apple Music Sing is not available on Mac. Once you have a supported device, you’ll also need an active Apple Music subscription. Unfortunately, this feature isn’t available on the Apple Music Voice plan, so you need to figure out which Apple Music plan is best for you.
And if you’re an Android user, we have bad news. Apple Music Sing is not available on Android at the time of writing, even if you’ve paid for the right subscription plan.
How to use Apple Music Sing
Once you meet all the requirements for Apple Music Sing, it will be available to you on Apple Music. We’ll show you how to use it on an iPhone and iPad, but the process is similar on the Apple TV 4K.
When you enter Sing Mode, the vocals will be at the lowest volume possible. You can change the volume of the vocals by swiping up and down on the sing icon.
Also, instead of lossless or Dolby Atmos, you’ll see “Sing” at the bottom of the music track. Also, even if you enable Dolby Atmos and Spatial Audio on Apple Music, the track will revert to the regular version when you enable Apple Music Sing.
Lyrics are highlighted in real-time, so you know when to sing. Also, if there are multiple artists on a track, the lyrics for them are on opposite sides, dubbed Duet View, which is ideal if you want to sing along with someone else.
Apple Music has a dedicated singing category that includes a variety of songs that are compatible with Apple Music Sing. You can view the playlist from the Browse section in the app. You can find cool playlists like Party Anthems, Sing The Hits, Iconic Duets and more.
There are also genre-based playlists if you’re looking for specific genres. Finally, the Sing feature isn’t limited to English; You can find it in different languages. You can close Apple Music Sing when you’re satisfied with your vocals by tapping the Sing icon.

Apple Music Sing is an excellent feature for singing along to your favorite songs without the need for third-party apps. Although Apple hasn’t shared which songs will support the feature, you can always find out by tapping on the Lyrics icon and looking for the Sing option.
