Apple on Tuesday announced a new Apple Music feature called Sing, which will help music lovers everywhere sing along to their favorite songs. Apple Music Sing will be available at the end of the monththough it’s unclear if the feature will require iOS 16.2which should also arrive this month.

Editor’s note: Updated 7/12/22 with information about compatible devices.

Apple Music Sing can display the lyrics of a song and it also provides different views of the lyrics. The lyrics are animated and “dance to the rhythm of the voice” to help the singers keep the beat. Background vocals are animated separately from the lead vocal, and there’s also a duet view where songs that feature multiple singers have lyrics appearing on opposite sides of the screen.

Another key feature is the ability to adjust the vocal level of the song. So, if you’re singing and want to lower your vocals in the recording, you can do so by using a vocal level adjustment slider on your device.
