If you’re passionate about singing then it’s a no-brainer to have a karaoke app on your smartphone. Whether you just want to have fun or want to refine your singing for your own good, karaoke apps will help you live out your passion the way you want.
There are tons of karaoke apps on the Google Play Store for your Android smartphone. While they all offer pretty much the same core feature, karaoke that is, each app has some additional and exclusive features that make them different from the other.

Smule is a community of over 50 million music lovers spread across the world. With a library of over 10 million songs across multiple genres, it is one of the largest karaoke apps for Android. Just pick your favorite song and start singing to the tune. The app offers customizable music categories to help you discover songs easily.
You can sing the song all by yourself or join someone else’s recording and sing with them. You can also record a duet or start a group recording for others to join.

You can even sing duets with some popular international singers who are on the platform, including Ed Sheeran, Lewis Capaldi, Luis Fonsi, Jason Derulo, Demi Lovato, and more.
Sing on the correct pitch to hit the flowing blue bars, that add points to your singing. And if you miss the pitch sometimes, automatic pitch correction (autotune) is there to polish your voice. Smule also lets you add audio as well as visual effects to your recordings.
