Spotifythe streaming music service Swedish, has started to activate a karaoke mode on some of the tracks allowing users to sing the songs and receive a score to know how well they did.
Users find the song they want to listen to, go to the player and slide down. Once they are in the area of letters, it is necessary to click on the button ‘sing’ (sing) that appears in the upper area. The app will activate the karaoke mode featuring a new screen with play buttons, a new lyric preview, changes to the beat of the music, and a voice level indicator.
Spotify, meanwhile, uses a microphone to capture the user’s voice and set the final score. In fact, the score is a percentage of accuracy so that the user can know if he did it like the original artist.
If the percentage is high, that is to say that apappears above 80% after the tests carried out, the platform will display confetti on the screen as a reward.
While there are artists who, regardless of this functionality, release their songs in ‘karaoke’ versions on various streaming platforms for users to perform, the new Spotify mode seems to be available on most titles with lyrics.
It is important to note that this feature only works in some countries, but it is expected to expand globally in the coming days.
Custom music bands, another new Spotify feature
The karaoke feature is not the only feature that Spotify has recently launched. The Swedish service has also started to enable a feature called ‘Supergrouper’ which, in a way, allows you to combine different artists to create a personalized music group.
‘Supergrouper’ doesn’t really create collaborations by mixing music from different artists. Instead, it’s another option. design custom playlists with songs from the users’ favorite artists.
Playlists can be shared with other users through the social networks. There is also a slightly different design so that its creator can indicate who would be his ideal band, what would be the name of that band and who would it be; for example, singer, drummer, guitarist, bassist, etc.
Currently, this Spotify app experience is only available for music fans in United States, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines, but the platform promises to expand it soon to other regions of the world.
Users can access this link from their smart phones and choose the artists they want to see in the group, or let Spotify do it for the listeners, and define their roles if they wish. You can also create a name for this imaginary group. Finally, the application will create a playlist with the songs of each artist that best suit that person’s listening.
