tvOS 17 brings a whole new immersive Apple Music Sing experience on Apple TV 4K with the ability to see oneself on the screen, apply filters, and more.
In December 2022, the Cupertino tech giant launched the Apple Music Sing to offer a new karaoke feature that displays lyrics in real-time so subscribers can sing along to their favorite tracks.
Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV 4K, Apple Music Sing also offers adjustable vocals so users can lower the volume of the track to take the lead, keep it high enough to sign with the artist or make other changes, background vocals to easily follow the song, and duet view to sing along multi-singer tracks.

tvOS 17 has been integrated with Continuity Camera to offer a more entertaining Apple Music Sing experience on Apple TV 4K.
Introduced in macOS Ventura and iOS 16, the Continuity Camera feature turns an iPhone into a webcam for Mac for video calling, scanning, and more.
In tvOS 17, the Continuity Camera feature uses the iPhone camera to show users themselves on large screens as they sing along to their favorite tracks via Apple Music Sing and make the karaoke session more entertaining by using filters.
However, the immersive Apple Music Sing feature requires Apple TV 4K (3rd generation). Launched in 2022, Apple TV 4K is powered by an A15 Bionic chip with a 5-core CPU and 5-core GPU, up to 128GB storage, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, a Thread radio, and USB-C Siri Remote.
The expansion of the Continuity Camera in tvOS 17 also brings FaceTime video calling to Apple TV 4K with Center Stage, SharePlay, and more.
Bob Borchers, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing said:
“tvOS 17 transforms the biggest screen in the home with FaceTime and new video conferencing capabilities, giving Apple TV 4K users the ability to easily connect with anyone right from their living room. New features and enhancements make Apple TV simpler to use and even more enjoyable, reinforcing it as the absolute best option in the living room for Apple customers.”
