If you wish to be a singer, you may know how useful Karaoke is. But, if you don’t know, karaoke is a form of entertainment in which a device plays the tunes of the song, and you sing along with it.
Even when you don’t wish to be a singer, you can sometimes want to sing your heart out. And this is where you’ll need a dedicated Karaoke app.
If you have an Android or iPhone, you don’t need to install a dedicated Karaoke app to play the song’s tunes. Instead, the popular music streaming app, Spotify, has a feature that lets you sing the song while viewing the lyrics.
Spotify recently got a new Karaoke mode that lets you sing along to songs as the lyrics appear on the screen. Karaoke Mode is the latest addition to the Spotify app and is not yet available to all users.
What is Spotify Karaoke Mode?
Karaoke Mode is a new feature recently made available to the user. As you might have guessed from the name, it’s a feature that lets you sing with the tune of some as the lyrics appear on the screen.
Once the Karaoke Mode is enabled, the Spotify app will use your phone’s microphone to listen to your voice as you sing along with the tune.
Spotify’s Karaoke Mode utilizes an audio analyzer to analyze your voice and give you a score based on how well you sang the song.
While the score rating of Spotify Karaoke may not be a trustworthy parameter to know how good you sing, it could still be helpful in many ways.
Difference Between Spotify Karaoke Mode and Lyrics Tool
Many users may confuse between the Karaoke Mode and the Lyrics tool. Both are the feature of Spotify, but they serve different purposes.
The Lyrics tool shows you the lyrics of the song you’re listening to, and the Karaoke Mode shows you the lyrics and removes the singer’s voice so you can sing over the tune.
How to Use Spotify Karaoke Mode?
Spotify Karaoke Mode has officially made its way to the app. However, the app is only available to people in English-speaking countries.
If you live in an English-speaking country, you must update the Spotify application on your Android or iPhone from the Google Play Store/Apple App Store.
Once updated, you must follow the steps we shared below to use the new Spotify Karaoke Mode.
- Open the Spotify app on your Android or iPhone (Ensure the app has been updated).
- Sing into your Spotify account and play the song you want to sing.
- When the song starts to play, scroll down to reveal the Lyrics.
- You will see a new ‘Sing‘ button on the Lyrics screen.
- Next, tap on the microphone mode at the top right corner.
- This will immediately activate the Karaoke Mode on your Spotify app.
That’s it! Now you can sing along while viewing the lyrics and listening to the tune. Spotify’s audio analyzer will analyze your voice and rate you between 0 and 100.
Spotify Karaoke Mode Not Available?
Spotify Karaoke Mode is available to all users; you don’t need a premium subscription to access it. However, this time the Karaoke Mode is available to limited users only in English Speaking countries.
If you have updated your Spotify app for Android or iPhone, and didn’t find the Karaoke Mode, you have to wait for a few more weeks or months. The best you can do is to keep an eye out on the App Store for Android/iPhone and check whether an update is available.
