Spotify 'Karaoke mode' demand escalates as Apple Music Sing goes live
It seems that Apple never skips its homework and always keeps up with the competition. A classic example of this is the introduction of Apple Music Replay in lieu of Spotify Wrapped.
No doubt, Replay wasn’t as exciting as the Wrapped‘s animated presentation for some users, but the efforts are still commendable. With that said, Apple has taken it up a notch and recently presented Apple Music Sing.
It is a karaoke-like feature that lets users sing along to their favorite tunes with changeable vocals and real-time lyrics.
Spotify ‘Karaoke mode’
While Apple Music Sing is indeed exciting for users, it has prompted a number of Spotify users (1,2,3,4,5,6) to demand a similar ‘Karaoke mode’.
WHERE TF IS SPOTIFY KARAOKE ?? @Spotify I DEMAND IT NOW !!!
Ngl that karaoke feature looks nice for Apple Music, Spotify needs to catch up…
Spotify did release a karaoke-like ‘real-time lyrics’ feature under testing phase for a limited user base. But it seems that the company completely forgot about releasing the final version globally.
In fact, even before Spotify actually released the feature, the news broke out on the internet. But ever since Apple Music pushed out its own feature, conversations around Spotify’s own karaoke feature have escalated too.
What’s the actual status?
There’s no doubt about the fact that Spotify was said to be working on the functionality (powered by Musixmatch) but it was seemingly there for limited circulation.
This is why users (1,2,3,4,5,6) are now asking for an actual Spotify karaoke mode.
Spotify, meanwhile, was said to be working on a karaoke feature of its own, but it has not become broadly available.
Not just that, the previous Spotify real-time lyrics feature was also never available for everyone to use (1,2,3,4), even after its appearance on respective devices.
Furthermore, it had even been claimed by one publication that Spotify was set to get karaoke mode in the app. It also asserted that some TikTokers were noticing it too.
Nonetheless, we will keep an eye on this matter and update you with all relevant developments so stay tuned to PiunikaWeb.
