Apple Music Sing is integrated with Apple Music’s existing lyrics feature, which displays the lyrics to millions of tunes. When you access these lyrics now, you’ll notice a little volume slider with a microphone icon. The vocal track is separated from the rest of the music, and its volume can be adjusted with Sing. Tap and drag the volume slider all the way down to sing solo, or mix to blend the track’s vocal with your own voice in whatever way you like.
How to Make Use of Apple Music Sing
You should now be able to use the new Apple Music Sing function if your iPhone or iPad has been updated to iOS/iPadOS 16.2 (or if you have the latest Apple TV 4K). Here’s how to put it to use.

Step 1: Launch the Apple Music app and select a song to listen to. With the iOS 16.2 release, a Sing section has been added to the Browse tab. If you want, you can choose a song from this list.
Step 2: Play the song, then hit the lyrics button (the one with the small quote mark icon) in the bottom-left corner.
Step 3: On the right side, you’ll see a small microphone icon surrounded by stars (songs that do not have the Sing feature will not show this icon). To activate the Sing function, tap this symbol.
Step 4: You may now tap and move the voice track’s volume up or down to sing along with the lyrics, which will be indicated in time with the beat and when you should be singing them.
Step 6: The method is same for Apple TV 4K (2022) users, only you’ll use the Apple Remote to pick and control the volume.
What songs are compatible with Apple Music Sing?
While Apple has not stated that the Sing function will be available for all of its music, it has stated that “tens of millions” of Apple Music tracks will be able to use it. To listen to them, you must be a subscriber to one of Apple Music’s premium plans (not including the Voice plan though, sorry).
With the iOS 16.2 update, there are plenty of Sing-compatible songs in the Apple Music App’s Browse section, which is organised by themed playlists (such as Party Anthems, Classic Love Songs, Soundtrack Songs, Songs for Pros, and Air Guitar Classics), genre (Pop, Hip-Hop, Alternative, Country, Rock, Dance, and more), and even decade (from the 1960s to the present).
