Sing! allows users to select individual songs, playlists or suggested themes, then virtually travel around the globe to find someone from the Smule community to sing with. Sing! even allows users to duet alongside celebrity Smule Partner Artists like Jason Derulo, Luke Bryan, Jessie J and many more. Sing! utilizes Apple TV’s new Siri Remote with touch surface to allow users to scroll around a virtual earth in order to find singers to join for a selected song.
For a more immersive experience, users can download Sing! for iPhone and sync it with the app on Apple TV using Wi-Fi. The iPhone becomes a microphone with adjustable reverb and volume controls. Multiple iPhones can be synced to the Apple TV, allowing for two people to sing together and others to queue up songs to the party playlist.
