Singing is a fun pastime and a great breathing exercise as well. However, singing without accompaniment can be boring; you need the proper backing track to keep you in tune and on cue. Heading to a karaoke bar is one option, and going on YouTube to search for karaoke songs is another. But, if you need something quick and on-the-go, the best recourse is to download a karaoke app. Whether you want to do it professionally or simply for fun, here are some of the best apps you can use to sing songs.
1. Baby Karaoke For Kids
You know what they say — start them young! If you are a parent looking for the perfect hobby to keep your children busy, Baby Karaoke is the best way to go.
This singing app is specifically designed for kids. Most karaoke apps on the market today have a wealth of songs available, but not all of them are kid-friendly. If you want to shield your kids from inappropriate songs, then this is the karaoke app for you. It has a library of kid-friendly songs as well as some great Bollywood hits. There are also nursery rhymes that combine the fun of singing with the joy of learning.
If your child already has a knack for singing, you should find a way to help them hone their talent. And what better way to do that than through practice with the help of a kid-appropriate karaoke app?
The coronavirus pandemic has certainly put a stop to a lot of social gatherings. However, that does not mean you cannot have fun remotely. With the help of Houseparty, you can sing popular songs with your friends while video calling them.
Sure, Houseparty is primarily a social media app that connects you with your friends. But, its new in-app karaoke feature is a great way to kill time and bond with pals as well. You can find the karaoke feature on the top right side of the app’s screen. Simply tap the mic icon so that you can start singing karaoke songs with your friends. The app boasts over 10,000 songs available as of writing, but there is a good chance it will continue to add more.
If you want to use a karaoke app with an exciting social element, then iSing is the best choice for you. This singing app lets you sing songs, record yourself singing them, and then share those recordings with other people.
Moreover, iSing has a pretty extensive collection of songs, though not all of them are free. Some songs cut off as well if you are not a paid member. However, there are thousands of tracks you can access free of charge. The app’s developer also uploads new tracks every week.
In addition to this, iSing allows you to create your own profile. Think of it like a social feed consisting purely of your performances. Other iSing users can then access your profile and listen to your recordings. You can do the same to other users on the app as well.
Frequent YouTube karaoke singers may already be familiar with KaraFun since it has its own YouTube channel. But, did you know that KaraFun is also an Android and iOS karaoke app?
With KaraFun, you can easily sing your favorite songs even while you are on the move. You can also record yourself singing popular songs. The tracks on this app are plentiful — with over 25,000 songs to choose from.
Perhaps the best part about KaraFun, though, is its offline feature. With the offline mode, the app allows you to sing songs even if you are not connected to a network. Notably, this is unlike many other karaoke apps on the market today.
5. Karaoke By Yokee Music
The karaoke app from Yokee Music is a great addition to your list of choices. It boasts a friendly user interface that you can easily navigate. With this karaoke app, you can sing your favorite songs, record yourself singing, and even share your performances online through social media.
