YouTube is starting to test the new feature for those who want to sing along to their favorite tunes. It may therefore be available in the future karaoke mode for the world’s most popular music and media platform.
YouTube, karaoke mode: how it works
The alleged test features that make YouTube karaoke mode possible have been published. It would seem that, at the exact moment the song begins, the album remains in the foreground of the screen for a while. Then it moves to the right side to make room for the text, which will highlight the exact line to follow in order not to lose the thread of the song.
Furthermore, once the song is finished, Google will give the possibility to highlight the song’s credits. And, if there are no lyrics available to sing along to, YouTube will only display the album cover, song title, and artist name in the center of the screen.
Since this feature is still a test, the ability to sing in karaoke mode is only given by other platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music.
