If you have a backing music track (just plain music of a particular song), you can easily try singing that song (just like a voice-over) in an event (celebrations and auditions). So, basically, most of the people are interested in singing along with (karaoke) music rather without it. If you own an Android device, you must be aware that there are tons of applications in the Play Store. So, unquestionably, you get plenty of karaoke apps for Android as well. In this article, we have picked 6 of the best karaoke apps available for Android.
Smule karaoke app is one of the most popular of its kind. It offers the largest karaoke music database as of now (on Android). You will find almost every of your favorite songs listed here. In our case, we observed a lot of popular Bollywood songs listed.
In order to access all of the karaoke music offered, you can opt for the VIP membership plan. It would cost you around a dollar per month and nearly 10 USD per year. You can find various sections inside the app that would separate community made karaoke music from the VIP-only list.
In addition, it provides you the ability to find karaoke music tracks navigating through specified categories like Pop / Jazz and so on. You can also join other users to sing along with the same karaoke music. Smule offers you various audio effects to polish the recording quality, and also if you want, you can even record your video along with the karaoke music track to bag in more fans from the community.
Yokee does not offer much karaoke music tracks when compared to the Smule karaoke app. And, it is yet another paid karaoke music app with a good user interface design implemented.
You can collect free coins by watching video advertisements. In either case, you can opt for the VIP access at around 3 USD per month and 25 USD per year. It still gives a rich karaoke music experience considering if it has the songs listed you were searching for.
In addition, Yokee provides you the lyrics of the song when the karaoke starts playing. So, this gives you more confidence if you will be performing a romantic song on your wedding anniversary!
Red Karaoke is one of the best karaoke apps for Android providing a rich user experience. It also provides you with the chance to showcase your singing skills in front of a huge online community.
You can also record a video to increase the impact of your song. The post processing technique makes it real hard to spot whether a user has recorded it using just the mobile. So, definitely the audio effects applied to the recordings is something to be appreciated.
Fret not, if you are not aware of the lyrics of a song because the app provides you with the lyrics as well. If you are lucky enough, you can be featured on the trending list with a potential reach of more than 5 million users.
SingPlay is not exactly a karaoke music player but a karaoke music maker app for your Android device. If you had ever worked with Audacity in order to make a karaoke music, you could feel this a lot familiar.
It is an easy-to-use karaoke maker app for Android. Unfortunately, not every song can be converted into a perfect karaoke music. If you are lucky enough, you would end up generating a perfect karaoke track for your favorite song. SingPlay does not offer a rich user experience but works without any abnormal errors (at least in our case).
In addition, it lets you tweak the Chorus FX effect as well. It might come handy to use in specific situations but I did not feel the need to change any of the settings explicitly to generate a perfect karaoke of my favorite song. Surprisingly, being a free karaoke solution for Android, it even lets you control the pitch and the tempo if there is a need. Unlike other karaoke applications, SingPlay does not require an active Internet connection to operate.
#5. Midifun Karaoke
Midifun Karaoke is one of the simplest karaoke apps for Android. It presents you with a basic user interface that works just fine. It is completely a free karaoke app for your Android device.
The audio quality may not be as good as you would expect, but it does offer some of the interesting karaoke tracks which you may not find elsewhere. When you start recording, you can have a look at the on-screen lyrics as well. The lyrics offered here are perfectly alright and accurate as per our experience.
In addition to this, it incorporates a guessing game as well. While the lyrics of a song is displayed, you will get four options to select from to guess the song name. In the game, you can either be presented with the lyrics to look at or the tune in order to answer the question. Moreover, Midifun karaoke app works offline too.
Karaoke online is yet another impressive karaoke app. It takes a completely different approach than its competitors on the Play Store.
Unlike others, Karaoke online does not offer you a dedicated or exclusive karaoke music database but it simply curates them under a single roof to make them easily accessible. It utilizes YouTube’s database to show you only the karaoke music content from YouTube.
Some of the Android purists may not like installing it as a separate app rather using YouTube for it. However, it seems to be a cleaner alternative which also gives you the ability to record at the same time. Also, you get to control the sample rate from the settings as well.
There are definitely some nice karaoke apps for Android. Unfortunately, if you directly head on to the Play Store, you may find a lot of non-functional karaoke applications. However, to save your time, we picked the best available at the Play Store for this list.
If you want to simply utilize YouTube’s database, you can get started with the Karaoke online app. If you want to have a potential audience reach with your recordings, you can prefer either Red Karaoke or Smule. Just in case, if you want to have an offline functionality with a karaoke app, then Midifun would be your best bet. In either case, if you want to generate a karaoke music which is not available anywhere else, you can try the SingPlay app.
