Samsung made Apple Music available on its smart TVs earlier this year, the first third-party smart TV manufacturer to do so. The Korean electronics giant has now added Apple Music’s real-time synced lyrics to its smart TVs, too.
The time-synced lyrics feature is now available on 2018 to 2020 Samsung Smart TVs, where users can sing along a song by rolling over the lyrics, jump to a certain verse, or see where they are at in the song. It’s also easier to find a song by just searching up the lyrics. Fun for a karaoke night!
Whether singing along to a hot new song for the first time, or revisiting a classic throwback, using time-synced lyrics on Apple Music will help make sure users are not missing a beat – or a line.
Apple debuted the real-time lyrics last year with iOS 13, allowing listeners to sing or lip-sync along the verse of their favorite hits. Users will need to have an active Apple Music subscription to use the streaming service on TV. They can download the Apple Music app from the Samsung Smart TV App Store, log in with their Apple ID, and start streaming from the Apple Music library.
Not all songs support this feature. If a song features time-synced lyrics, then it will automatically appear on screen in time with the music. Apple Music is available free for three months and then $9.99 per month.
