This app is great! I really enjoy it. I just have one small problem...the music always seems to drown my voice out! I don't know how to fix this. Even when my vocal volume is all the way up the music overpowers my voice. It's really annoying especially when I work hard on a song and I can't even hear myself :(

Good ish. There are a lot of songs that aren't in here, and entire platinum selling bands with nothing in here. One of the consistently frustrating things is if you change how it shares to IG and tell it to use it every time....you can't go back and change it. I've Uninstalled the app, Uninstalled IG, nothing let's me correct that mistake, and it really has impacted my IG feed for who sees what I post and who doesn't. Reels are the way to go, but I set it to stories. Bad choice. Apparently.

I really like this app. But when I try to view the lives it says that it does not follow Smule's requirements. What? But I also don't like that you HAVE to pay to do what you want. 1) If you aren't a VIP, then people can only see 100 of your recordings. 2) You can only really do duets without paying. There is so little things that you can do without paying. There should be a lot more things to do without paying.

the app was AMAZING I tell you, AMAZING! It WAS amazing. Now it sucks. Everytime I select a song to sing and start it, the app freezes and turns to black. From what I can see, you guys don't do a great job of fixing bugs or listening to people who find them. 😕

It works great now! I'm a huge fan of this app, but this week it has decided to quit working for me. Tech support HELP! I can't play most songs to sing, and if I can get a song to play, at the end it says it had a problem and doesn't have the recorded audio. I turned off Bluetooth and I have the VIP subscription. Uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail. HELP!

I'ma former subscriber, but I do plan on using the app in the future. It's awesome and has great features. It could use a more expensive catalog, imo, but I'ma not of a music snob, so that might just be me. The only thing I really find fault in with this is it's exclusively a vocal app. It would be really cool if there was an option to replace the other instruments with my own too, but there are other apps that allow this, so I have been using them. This one's really good for vox though!

The app used to be really good but then it started going downhill I tried uploading my pfp again but it wouldn't let me. Even when it did it doesn't show up at all. Also if you try to sing sometimes it doesn't pick up your sound at all either. Edit: They fixed the pfp issue and the mic is way better but sometimes it can be off timed (most of the time it isn't though so I'm glad it's fixed)

It's a good app used it before and it was a blast. I've been having difficulty using the songs Everytime I click on a song I freezes and doesn't allow it to play. Please fix this, this bug is not allowing the app to be functional. Edit: I created this post two months ago and this big still hasn't been fixed.

I don't know what's going on but my voice sounds out of sync sometimes when I go back to listen to the song before I submit. Also sometimes the music is too loud and it over powers someone singing and voice acting. Also I wish you can rewind while singing so if I mess up I have to start all over from the beginning which sucks!(UPDATE:they just added this feature).

This app does not support wireless headsets or wireless headphones. I've tried to work with the Smule team to troubleshoot this but they do not seem to have the ability to enable Bluetooth headsets to record ones singing. It's very unfortunate because I don't want to be tethered to my phone, I want to be able to sing and dance when I sing. I will update my post if they start to allow the use of Bluetooth headsets.

I used to love this app, I'd have given it 5 stars, but they've changed it so much, it just isn't as good as it used to be. You used to be able to edit your songs after singing them, actually getting to re-sing specific parts if you messed up without having to erase the whole song or start over, and you could also choose to sing with NO effects over your vocals, not sure why that's no longer an option (I used to have the app on the iPod, so I don't know if that's why).

I love this app, it's fun to just be able to sing and have fun doing it (even when you can't sing LOL). The only thing I don't like is how our profiles are not private. If I share a song with someone that doesn't have smule, they are able to look at my entire profile and see all my other songs even without having the app. Which I found was strange 🤷🏻‍♀️. If I could make that option private I would. Because there are some songs I like to share with friends and famil but just not all of them LOL

The new page display showing the LARGES ICONS is totally HORRIBLE!.👎👎👎👎👎 It's so hard to find the old songs, and don't even show when it was recording. This HUGE ICONS is totally taking over the list view.👎👎👎👎👎PLEASE!, bring back the list view. It's easy to search through old recording. Need to focus on getting sounds better. Please work on a group song: I want to get rid of it, but I can't. I should be able to🥺

Getting error message only when I plug in headphones. "Problem configuring audio settings 1001" yet there is no settings to configure. Same microphone/headset I've used to record hundreds of songs. Been off the app for couple years, wanted to try it out again but this happened. Nowhere on the app or the internet am I seeing this message experienced with other users. Must be a sign from heaven to uninstall Smule.

It's a good app, helps bring ppl together that have similar tastes in music, u make new friends, and practice singing. It does have some flaws as anything would. But if the developers would like to make some changes that could improve both the app and user experience. Of course if their capable of it. 1st expand on music variety(not just for iphone), make it simpler to use(or add tutorial), and adding gifs+a voice chat( on inbox option) could help with communicating better. Ik others agree too.

I chose a different app. This app allows you to duet with some famous familiar faces. Also, my leaving is because I love singing, here you get a handful of songs to sing by their choice. To sing solo its $$. You can sing other songs but only in duets. There are some good people in this app. I like flexibility to sing a whole song, mingle and make friends. I didn't get much of any that here. If your a solo artist this app is great for you! 🤗

This used to be the absolute best app of it's kind for many years, but the new subscription service makes the app basically unusable if you aren't interested publicly sharing your recordings. Honestly, they've been trying for years to force the app into being some kind of new social media and it's just really uncomfortable.

Wonderful experience since upgrading my phone. I feel bad for folks with old phones. You should include the required phone specs in the app description. I think the idea of giving a 7 day free VIP to new signups is a great idea. Free use is much better when you've discovered folks to follow, and that is easier when you can post songs and meet the people who join it.

I had previously given only 3 stars due to problems with a prior update. Now the app works great again and is fun and easy to use on both devices I have it installed on. Still can't afford VIP , But I still enjoy singing with other people who have posted duets and solos. Plenty of songs to choose from, volume controls, and other cool options when recording .

The quality seems good so far, but being an alto tenor, it seems there is no way to change the pitch which is an issue that may cause me to switch to Starmaker. Most female led songs are a bit too high for me. Also would like the beauty filter that StarMaker has..just sayin. Lastly, after I changed devices I was cheated out of my 7 days free :/

I have used this app for two years now, and I have to say this is easily one of my favorite apps. You can sing with other people, join groups, and make friends. However, this app isn't perfect. The iPhone version is different than Android version. Something I wish the Android version had is deleting your recording I also wish you could skip through parts you don't want to sing. I also wish you could delete other people's recordings if they join your group.

I'm ready to delete this already. The app shows while I'm singing I'm nailing it but the recording is way out of time. The cueing to start singing is horrible, sometimes it lights up after the song has reached that point. But hey, it says I sound awesome every time, no I don't. Especially on playback. Maybe a tutorial on settings would help too. I thought maybe it was me but I used a separate device to record and no I'm not that far off so I'm not sure what's going on but it's a bad experience.

It is good.. and I love talking to my friends and singing but some reason it's acting up now. This never happened before. Idk what's going on with this app rn But it keeps freezing sometimes when I text, listen to recordings and sing a recording and the recordings cut out and the app freezes And sometimes stops. Smule needs to fix a lot of stuff on this app and live Jams. Please fix it. I'm so frustrated about the apps problem. I've been on here for almost 3 years now. It has problems rk😩😒

Smule doesn't seem to be a karaoke app even though it advertises itself as one. Two reasons, first there aren't any backing or lead tracks & even though there is a "sing with the artist" filter, the filter doesn't actually give you the songs to "join" to sing with the artist, second there is no way to change the pitch, which is essential for good karaoke. I won't be sticking around after the 7 day trial. Some of the other features are cool but the two core features missing are a non starter.

If you love music, you'll love this app, it's fun and relaxing. There are millions of songs to choose from, you can sing alone, with friends, and even with the artists who performs the song!!! Great therapy for the soul. Amazing app, and VIP isn't really expensive either. I'm a broke girl and can afford it!!! Thank You Smule for creating a fantastic, affordable, therapeutic, and fun app!!

I'm paying for this app. like many others and because of that... it would be nice if Smule could remove it's watermark in my videos like other apps do when you pay for them. Also I would like to be able to record without any filter. I know people that don't have a singing voice or a powerful voice in person, but with this app it doesn't matter if you can sing because you still sound loud, and pretty good; (personally) I don't need any help with filters within this app for my recordings.

I love the app. I've used it for 5 years now. But until Sing Live is fixed I can't give it any higher than a 2. You've coined a new term: smuled. It's when you pick up the mic and the connection breaks and both singers have to restart the entire app. It's frustrating that sometimes it takes 10 minutes to sing with someone. Oh, and I get connection errors when checking messages. I have to force quit and restart to read new messages.

amazing! its awesome and defiantly worth it! my only problems is I wish you could have drafts only YOU can see so you don't have to post ur signing to the public but you can save it! and its also very slow to download, sometimes taking around 2 hours. I have good storage, it's just the app. but over all good!

I love this app but just when I work thru any technical issues with an update.. they go and change it again with ANOTHER update...now there's lagging and video timing and singing DONT match...this is pretty much my one and only coping skill due to depression and anxiety...and I can't utilize it effectively if it doesn't work...not worth 20.00 per month if problems and technical difficulties outweigh the positive benefits and overall fun...js

Harder to use and definately not user friendly when it comes to choosing the pitch you want that you think sounds the best. Every time an update happens the app works shittier. Now its not letting me save my recordings. It says network error. Which doesn't even make sense. If there was a problem with the network it wouldn't allow me to load the song and sing it. So the fact that the song loads and im able to sing it but not save it makes no sense. STOP DOING UPDATES.

I gave this app a poor review saying that it was loaded with bots and that it could be a great app but I was actually speaking of a different one that rhymes with par taker. This app is the bomb, I've made close friends all around the world with our connection through music and it has improved my singing voice a thousand times over. If you have no technical skills maybe try the free version of this first because you do need to understand the difference between digital and analog sound. Worth it

I have loved my experiences with Smule for the most part and it is currently my favorite thing pastime. I'm a VIP subscriber. However, lately, the quality of the app has declined to point I am not able to use it properly: recorded audio drastically changes after being uploaded (my voice too quiet/loud), mt voice echoes a second after throwing my timing way out of sync, constantly have to clear cache so recordings will upload, and now when I try to sing it freezes without starting again.

It has fixed some glitches like the delays, speed-ups, muffled voices and missing uploads. I just hope that Smule can list the OCs with no joiner as well, it's sad if the recordings are lost just cos no one has joined them...one more thing is, I would prefer to see the song thumbnails instead of the white-washed spinning globes. I've been a VIP user for 3 years and I've improved a lot in singing, and I've found my original style. Thank you very much for this app.

Last week, it was working fine. This week, its overly distorted on the recordings. No change in the phone, it's not been damaged and nothing has been installed or downloaded to cause the new distortion. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling but still getting the same problem. Smule doesn't have a settings tab to adjust mic settings and neither does my android. This isn't the first time this has happened but the problem seems to fix itself and then later occurs again, all on it's own.

I've not been able to save a recording in months. I was hoping it would work itself out, I've went through every setting possible and when I go to save it says problwm with audio configuration, it's freezing up now too, and I have to exit. I've uninstalled, reinstalled cleared settings, data, cache on the app and others that may cause issues and still nothing. I paid for a year and now I can't use it.

Ever since changing from a corded headphone jacked phone to a bluetooth only (pretty much all new smart phones) it doesn't pic up the mic from the BT headphones and doesn't playback your own voice while using BT headsets. On top of that the new layout is impossible to change anything like it used to be back on my note 8 where I could adjust things at the touch of the screen. Won't be using this until it's fixed to make it work with newer phones and Bluetooth headsets.

Love this app. It helps me loosen up when I'm stressed or tensed. If possible I would suggest that we had the option to edit or redo sections of the song instead of starting completely over caz something happened in the background while singing. Also is there a way to search songs sang in Groups? I wanna be a part of a group sing along but I never run across any of em.

I love this app but I have the same issue that hasn't been fixed for the 4 years I've been using this app, the app downloads songs for you to sing, but the download sometimes only downloads a portion of the song and has no way or redownloading the song so you just have to give up completely on the song, constantly reporting this issue but hasn't been fixed, the new layout is overly complicated as well, the devs are not very responsive to the community, I could go on and on about everything wrong

No longer enjoying the app anymore. The app does not work well on new android devices at all. I've brought two of the same Samsung phones to test out the recording on each phone and the issue was still the same. My voice and recording is super loud and distorted sounding and not very clear at all. I've complained about the issue to them for 7 months now and they still haven't resolved the issue. They respond back with a reply with in the next month very bad delayed service.

I always have to delete and reinstall the app because, eventually, my songs get stuck in an "Uploading" phase, but NEVER UPLOADS!! Smule needs to fix this problem. I sang 6 songs last night before realizing it, and now they all just disappear, like I never sang it upon reinstalling it. This has happened about 10 times since having the app. Make that 11 now. Just had to do it again.

Giving 1 star right now because every time I try to record myself and save it, it can't finalize the audio, it gives me an error saying "Oops! There was a problem configuring the audio." I have a Samsung galaxy note 10+ and would really love this issue resolved so I can keep using the app that I love and have a subscription for 🥺🥺

This app is misleading, because when you first open it, it prompts you to immediately record a song without giving you any instruction on how the functionality works. And then, if you back out of that first time trying to record, there's no way to get back in to record without paying a $10 a month subscription. There are no ads, it just demands payment.

I really miss the old version of this app! I tried to record a song and after I was done it kept saying there was an error and I had to start the song all over again. Back then, this app allowed us to change the voice effect, now we can't, this really is a disappointment, and i hope it is fixed..

When I'm using this app, it allows me to sing perfectly fine. But, after the recording is finished, my voice sounds distorted, like a robot or something and it's upsetting for many reasons. Also, when I first joined the app, you could sing solo/make a duet by watching some ads, yet you guys have taken that away. Some people don't like having to sing with other people, so they wanna do solo and stuff, while others, including me, think it'd be cool to make a duet again WITHOUT having V.I.P.

Guys READ THIS. I have been off and on having issues with the audio sync issue. For me, I found the issue was that this only happens when Bluetooth is turned on (even if not being used). Test with Bluetooth off and see if they solves it. Otherwise, while I don't love every change, I think the app is still very good with quality of produced content being on par with professional work!

I CANNOT CANCEL MY SUBSCRIPTION! I had planned to take a break as I haven't been using it, and to renew at some point, but it will not give me ANY option to view subscription settings! At over $40 a MONTH, this is completely unacceptable. Google Play does not list Smule as one of my subscriptions (past or present), so it had to have been through the app. I've tried on mobile and desktop. The "how to" video shows options I do not have. STOP CHARGING ME!

Love this app so much but as others have mentioned the update has made it impossible to sing with other people. It sounds fine as you are recording, then the playback has me singing slow and behind the track. Doesn't seem to be an issue if I start the recording but it sucks that I can no longer sing with others! Edit: 5 months later, still having issues. I see many new features, but still problems with recording! Prioritize this please!

Used to be OK, broken since update. I plugged in my wired headphones and got a warning that wireless headphones aren't supported and the app would use my phone mic. After singing, I listened to the recording and my voice was a beat behind the backing track, even though I was singing it right. Tried another song and my recording was ahead of the backing track. Tried this with two different sets of headphones to rule out a hardware problem. It's the app. Please fix! This used to be so much fun!

Why "fix" what wasn't broken? I really enjoyed Smule prior to the changes you made, but it's horrible now. I used to be able to change effects after recording. Can't now. My voice used to line up with the music. Doesn't now. (The voice adjuster doesn't help.) I used to be able to change the video filter after recording. Can't now. I used to be able to adjust some of the effects for more or less reverb. Can't now. It's like you took a really great, innovative app and destroyed it. WHY?!

I will not resub this app, I love it at first no problems. Now the app take over a min to load. the app wont let me upload my videos to other apps. Videos stop or skip during playback. The app also records at the wrong speed even when adjusted every song is off speed. It isn't fun anymore to use this app. Smile's redesign was a total FAIL, oh well. moving on.

This app was so amazing. Though, since last and this year, hearing ourselves singing after singing a song, our voices will be too late and I have to re-sing the song again. Now, I'm experiencing a major problem: I can't do duets with others because my voice will sound so distorted. Then, the late voice, now, the distorted voice. Smooth move, Smule.

Been using this for 6 years. This last year it seems like every other week a new issue. This week it's near impossible to host or connect to a livejam. Several times also booted or disconnected. Tried on two different phones (android and ios) same problem. Other friends having same issues. And tonight I couldn't save any original opens or joins. Would love more consistency.

I've used this app for quite some time now...everything seemed fine...and then after the updates recently....The audio that you record of your voice is crackling, glitching, and garbling. On top of that, if you record video at the same time...you can not get it to align with your mouth...It will look like bad lip sync...🙃🙃...Yeah...and I tried the alignment tool too. Sorry...but if these issues are not sorted out on Android soon...I'm done with paying for an app to just sit on my phone...🙄

I love this app! Far the best, however. It is very upsetting that this has not been fixed. 1- Why does the camera mode takes the entire screen? The lyrics gets a tiny space, and one has to just not care about video, We are not here to have to act after recording. Leave both videos tiny. Everyone will appreciate it! 2- Please, GIVE US either a BACK button if one accidentally hits continue and now has the wrong filter, and one has to redo. PLEASE CARE ABOUT OUR TIME. I spend hours on this, I love it but that's annoying. 3- PLEASE auto reject any recordings that are obviously bad. There are people that still dont know how to use a mic and all we hear is the awful feedback. Like for real? you write at the end. You sound great! But its a feedback! That shows a lot from you guys. Simple stuff.

Edit from my previous review - It's getting worse! Thought of giving them a chance to fix the issue of audio configuration. Now the voice lag is disastrous! Please do not spend your money on this app, It will never be fixed. Been a VIP member for 4 years. And for a few days this app is become sooooo buggy. Can't record anything. An error comes up saying - there was a problem configuring the audio. Sent multiple tickets, but no resolution. Guess they don't care anymore.

Great karaoke app, lots of songs. Free version you can only sing duets that other people start...but that's still a lot of fun, and you can keep an eye out for special deals on membership. The customer service is the best I've ever had to work with. Got back to me fast, polite, and fixed the the problem within a couple days. Not a lot of ads to deal with and pretty simple to use with a headset. A little harder without, but not impossible. Overall a great time!

This app is terrible. Mic and sound works one minute and next it just stops. There is no way to test you mic to see if it works without wasting time singing to find out it doesnt work. The majority of the time you use this your troubleshooting. Don't even bother. Can only open duet with VIP. Tried on pc first with blue stacks-what a headache, then tried on phone. It worked great on phone(for a good hour), then it didnt.

I've had this app for many years now, and it has gotten me through some rough times. It's truly the most AMAZING thing....until just recently. As an Android user The lyrics aren't in sync with the song at all! Not even close, and the video keeps freezing up. I would truly beyond heartbroken if I had to delete my VIP membership after all these years. Do hope you fix it very soon.

I am all of a sudden having problems recording. I can sing the song, but then it says "There was a problem configuring audio. Please try again" and then I can't edit. I've used my bluetooth headphones many times and have never had this problem. The vocals usually match up fairly close. Please fix this. We are paying money for a subscription to this service. It should work.

I'll change my rating if app gets fixed. I couldn't adjust effects without it acting like all the effects were on 100% even when set to 1 %. Then I did update and now I can't even join songs, telling me "can't configure audio" been on here 2 plus years and lately It's just been getting worse. Seems less people are joining, seeing songs. Plus all the problems with effects and being able to finish songs. Can't even use this app right now. What happened smule. We deserve to know why app is crashing

I have had such a negative experience with Smule. I'm disappointed, frustrated, discouraged.

My timing is constantly off. My favorite singers have awesome oc's that expire before Smule will work. And the absolute WORST is them deleting songs I sang with loved ones that have passed away, all because of "permission righ

I really like this app, and it didn't have any problems until just recently. Now it won't let me record anything. Everytime I try it says there was a problem with audio configuration. Maybe this is just with androids but I'm very frustrated because it did this for a couple of weeks and then for one day said it was working and now today it's no longer working? I really would like to start recording again, please fix this asap 🙏

I've used this app on and off for years. What made it special was the feeling I was in a studio with all the professional level voice effects. You guys removed that feature, so we all might as well go use another karaoke app since Smule has gotten rid of the one thing that made it stand out above all other signing apps for many years. Please fix and I'll change rating to 5 stars </3

I absolutely loved this app except for the recent update. I have android and now all of a sudden when you play back a song the timing of your voice and the music is completely off. Can't even adjust it either. I really hope you guys fix this soon or I'll have to cancel my subscription other android users are also complaining.

VIP member for years. The most recent update has broken this app completely for the Android platform, especially if you have a tablet with a 4:3 ratio screen, because on playback of any recording, all of the controls end up disappearing under the lower part of the screen. And the auto-gating of the mic is dreadful, cutting off lots of sung notes. This used to be such a great app. Now considering canceling membership.

it used to be a great app but then they added all this reverb non sense. now the playback sounds awful. you can never make it sound normal. it was nice when you could watch ads to earn points to use to purchase songs so you could sing solos. the whole earth showing with the location is pointless as well especially when it just shows some random location. its harder to click on things now in the app. not sure how to explain that but yeah. bottom line it just used to be a way better app.

This app gives you the ability to sing thousands of duets for free. There's a world of people with beautiful voices and some who like to sing even if their voice isn't perfect. I'm considering getting the paid version for a month. Update: I've been paying for this for months and though it's overall still good it endlessly gets stuck in uploads half the time with the only solution reinstalling the app and losing the tracks. Spent so much time perfecting tracks that ended up useless. Fix it.

The app is fine and all but lately when I listen to myself sing, it sounds extremely robotic and it isn't good. It's very annoying having to deal with this issue more times now than before. Uninstalling and reinstalling doesn't work and nor does restarting my phone. After I recently updated this app, the issue was fixed but now it's back to sounding robotic. Please permanently fix this.

When the app is functioning, it's fun and rewarding. But just today, the recording mechanism failed like it did last year. It took them 3 months to fix it. Many other users are having the same problem. Fortunately, after 5 attempts to uninstall the app and then a successful reinstall, the problem was fixed this time. That did not work last year. So far it's back to normal.

I'm glad that with the most recent update they brought creative freedoms back in the way of filters and the app is still something I enjoy. I wish they would add a function that works allow you to record with wireless earbuds or headphones though because I prefer the audio that comes through the ones I have, but the recording comes through so off time that I can't even get it adjusted to be on time with the music and I have to deal with my half broken wired ones.

Great app with a lot of songs and tons of other singers to sing with! Not every song I want, but most of them. Also, have trouble sometimes uploading my recordings, where they do not upload at all because of errors (only a couple times) or they are pending upload and it's stuck that way and I can't access the recording at all, even to delete it.

They say if something isn't broken don't fix it or better yet don't reinvent the wheel. Like many have said here this app used to be really great, lots of fun, but now not so much. It's no fun when your singing along with the track and go back to listen to the recording and your audio is not in sync with the timing of the song. It's disappointing when you put your best effort forward, hit save only to have the recording not save. Was a therapeutic outlet.

I absoloutly love this app, I had used it a few years ago and made very amazing progress, but now that I came back to using it there's a problem. With every recording there's a static noise for both voices that won't go away, I'm not sure if others are having that problem but I still do not enjoy hearing static over the song, my voice, and the other person's voice.

My experience in the past with this app was so desirable. I love being able to retry a challenging part in a song without having to start over. But this new update sucks. I also liked hearing myself sing while I'm recording like in past versions of the app. Now it just sucks... also what happened to the option where you could change how loud the backing vocals are? If there's an option to hear yourself while you sing I think that would be cool. Also to save your progress.

Congrats, you made an app that was really great almost unusable. I'm now forced to use a filter for my recording. There's clicking feedback throughout the recording (due to the filter) no matter what filter, which is distracting. And now there's a second filter that I have to apply after the recording. There's also no tutorial that helps me understand what I'm doing. The syncing is slightly better than it used to be, but it doesn't make up for the fact that you've given me less control.

Video joins are out of sync. Audio sounds fine (thanks to the ability to adjust it), but video is out of sync with the voice. Also major crackling in headphones when joining audio-only. Edit: Your response is useless. I'm here to report what happens in your app. You can read my review and fix it or just keep telling hundreds of us to email you.

UPDATED REVIEW-The past few months have been horrible with this app. I am on Android with Samsung S10e. I was having the same issues many were-crackly audio, extreme delay when listening to yourself while singing and audio/video out of sync beyond fixing. I almost lost hope. Even with the latest update I was still having issues. HOWEVER, I don't know if this is related or not but this morning my phone updated to Android 11 and everything is working perfectly on Smule!!!

Great concept and has enough technical features to actually get the job done. But it has a bug where playback sounds correct after recording, then after uploading it sounds like my vocals randomly get quiet on and off. I first thought others were forgetting how the song goes, but now I see it's a bug. The app doesn't acknowledge it nor offer a solution yet the app costs a whopping $10 PER WEEK. It feels underhanded to charge the most I've ever seen for an app, and have buggy core functionality.

I love the app. Singing my favorite songs is a lot of fun but after the last couple of updates I've been disappointed. For example, I can no longer choose my filters on video and voice effects. The other is when I want to listen to older recordings like my very first one but now have to be VIP to do so. I get I may be that one person on the app without VIP but that shouldn't have to affect my experience while singing. 😭please fix.

I had enjoyed using the app for probably 1½ to 2 years now and have used it for a while on my tablet. It's a great singing app and I love spending a few hours singing my favorites. BUT recently, after a few month hiatus, I come back to the app to find out that when I finish a song I can NO LONGER access the options to change the vocal style or sync my performance. It's all hidden behind the "continue" button. I can't use the app anymore because I cant even sync my own recordings so it matches!!!

I used to enjoy singing on this app and have been here for almost 4 years. There's a big glitch in the app where you try to delete a recording and it stays on your profile, if you try to delete it again, it instead deletes other recordings . All my recordings are now gone instead of the one I actually wanted to delete. I'm going to try a different singing app.

The new update is horrible. You can't even pick your own effects anymore and to knit pick out peoples personal recordings you want to use. Also, everytime I try to connect my bluetooth headphones and doesn't even recognize it as headphones and I can't hear myself sing no matter what I try. These need to be fixed.

After reading all of the recent reviews as well as the poorly worded and oft-regurgitated excuses from the developers I deleted the app immediately after downloading. I used to use this app awhile back and for quite some time, but I do remember the customet service being lack luster and sadly it looks like that hasn't changed. I was hoping there would have been amazing improvements by now but obviously it's only gone downhill since its creation and original launch. Color me not impressed.

Crappy customer and tech support. I used to love this app until it suddenly decided not to pic up my mic anymore. I thought initially it was because I switched phones, but have since tried it on 2 other android devices and have the same problem. I've done everything recommended and nothing works, and of course you can never get a response from anyone with any helpful information. I been a VIP member for 2 years, but have to cancel because I cant even use the app.

Android user & really loved this app in the past, so I just paid for another full year of VIP thinking it would be the same as it had been before.I had to uninstall the older version, then reinstall due to a storage issue on my phone.Soooo sorry I did because this new version is not working, it skips during the recordings an has great lags and delays after recordings are finished. I should not have to try and fix every recording with a voice match feature. Extremely upset and sadly disappointed!

The app is great and all but there are some problems I keep experiencing recently. First, the song freezes for a bit and it knocks me off, and it even freezes in the middle of a word. Second, whenever I plug in my earbuds some songs go staticy and slow. Third, it won't let me use the free trail. The 3rd one I don't really mind since I can still sing but it is kind of disappointing.

This app used to be amazing! I had a VIP membership for 2 years and decided not to continue this year as the quality has severely dropped. New sound effects are horrible, voice and music are not lined up well if you choose to hear yourself while you sing, there's a severe lagging issue. Also the live jams doesn't work anymore for me, just a bunch of crackling and kicks me off every time. The first year I joined was the best... it's also not android friendly.. 😑👎🏼

After the latest updates, it's been tragically bad. Delayed. There's no feedback from my mic, no matter how many times I change settings (on the app and my phone) the effects seem to throw it all off. What happened to the menu when you turn the camera off? It stays the same as the video menu for me. I dunno. I've been a VIP for almost a year and have loved it up til now. I'm going to have to cancel my subscription if the issues aren't resolved. 🥺

What is going on???? I used to love this app. Now every update makes it more and more difficult to actually use the app. Despite all these fancy updates, as an android user and vip for almost 2 years, they are all irrelevant if we can't even record songs without technical issues. Crazy delays and now it won't pick up audio clearly from my headphones. Nevertheless, I believe you all will fix it and I'll be patient. Smule still rocks!

The Android app is not very good compared to the iPhone version. Several useful features are lacking and it's pretty buggy. I enjoy using it and the song selection is wonderful, but I can only give it 3 stars at the moment. Wish they would focus on getting Android up to par as much as they do updating the layouts & styles (which you can't create on Android btw). Less features but subscription cost is the same. Hmm...

I am very dissapointed in this update.Now when I sing a song that I worked Hard on and then try to find the right filter/sound (because now there are too many to choose from, unecessarily!) The entire recording gets deleted! Every time! It takes time to sing these songs, and then that happens?! then I cant even use the filters or sing with anyone on video because my timing is off, right in the middle of the song.What is the point! Smule get it together.This is NOT why I am paying for this app!

I used to love this app. About a month ago it started messing up and I deleted it. I just re subscribed and its still not fixed. The sound is crackling when I try to sing. I thought it was my headphones but tried two others and it did the same. Along with there is a delay between my voice and the music when i review the song afterwards. Please fix this. I love this app and would hate to give it up.

I have loved using this app for almost a year now but the new settings have completely ruined it. The phrase "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" comes to mind. PLEASE put it back to how it was. The latency on the vocal is impossible to work through and the effects are now a nightmare to attempt to navigate. I'll stay forever if it gets fixed lol!

I used to really like the app no I am getting kind of frustrated. I am an Android user Samsung Galaxy S10 note to throw out there. I agree that recently the music has been having line up issues. I used to be able to slide to ms bar to adjust for my using Bluetooth but now the lag literally differs by song and by whether or not I am using a filter. I am not a professional vocalist by any means just a hobby and good for ear training IMO I am however a musician with excellent relative pitch. I am plenty patient willing to spend the 5 minutes to figure out where I needed to slide the lag bar but when it changes within the song that is a problem. There are some songs where even marginally off beat is going to make a person sound horribly out of tune (especially those with glissandos or runs.) I'd be remiss to not add that in playback after uploading occasionally the timing has also shifted to no longer in time where I set it. Furthermore with some songs the playback timing will sound in 3 different places on say 3 sets of decent headphones. Specifically playing back of straight phone no headphones audio versus JBL Endurance versus Aeropex Aftershoks versus Beats the timing changes just enough.. Lastly on the specifics of timing issues your filters almost always have a timing discrepancy. Example I am using magic and it is currently needed to time to -359 ms (You guys should really consider going up to 500 both ways as when batteries get low on headphones I've had -400 not be enough) and Super Studio needs to be at -356...makes it difficult to quickly compare filters. For those not using BT you should recognize an occasional need to adjust up to 5 either way for timing if that helps. I usually go no more than 3 to -3 honestly but almost never 0 on the Samsung headphones that plug in USB-C that came with my phone (Not my favorites by any means) Plugging in does not automatically mean lag can't exist think of the need for sound to travel in the first place if you need a visual. It will change on different songs and usually seems to coincide with song length or file size of the song. A volume issue going on no one seems to have addressed. When using any studio filter versus for example the magic filter there is a severe volume difference. It is not "magic" to simply turn the persons voice down so that isn't it (Though I'd agree some vocals should be turned down to 0 ) So on a study filter I generally need to turn my volume down and on magic volume up at least 3.0. I'd love the ability to adjust volume at different song sections actually. I might be perfect volume on high notes (I'm soprano BTW) but singing low alto I may get buried and not be able to here myself above instrumentation at all. However if I turn it up it is going to distort the high notes. Volume changes often I've noticed make pitch changes. (I double checked against a quality Seiko tuner. It's not just my ears playing tricks on me) I'm kind of hoping by leaving you guys a review that is super specific you'll be able to get more details to some problems people have mentioned but not described possibly enough to know where to focus your corrections. I fully understand that a large chunk of the issue is that people submit songs themselves. Maybe developing something or persons to check submissions or even those voted below a certain percentage for sound issues would be helpful. Hell if they want to check the lyrics cool! Additions that'd be cool are if you know your lag time ahead the ability to preset it (and still be able to change after just in case) thus being able to change the highlights or music bars before playing the song so the timing is correct with the music...(would be helpful with persons not musically trained) Added key signatures or actual notes I'd personally appreciate On the make your own parts section the ability to highlight the music parts correctly for example on say a song that has vocal backups like anything Nightcore style. (usually wrong) Android like Iphone wants the ability to edit sections w/out replaying the whole song again

I've loved Smule for singing since this past April. I found it by accident and its helped me kill time during covid. I bought a nice microphone for my android and have been able to make awesome sounding recordings with it. About three weeks ago I started to notice a lag in my vocals compared to the music. Timing is off, however if I adjust it as instructed the part of the song I'm reviewing is fine but then another part of the same song will still be fast or slow. It no longer works.

I have had this app for 6 plus years and have used it constantly to practice and be able to adjust my own voice accordingly BUT now the timing is off even when you know your on beat and you can't even take off the damn filters. I have an audition to practice for thats in January. Bring back the old damn settings and fix the voice timing to be accurate! I am now having to find another app that will help me warm up. Stop making adjustments that are only making the app worse.

I have been very happy with this app for a long time, but it has completely failed to deliver in the past few weeks. Not only do the vocals not match up with the music (even when you adjust the settings), but the music itself is very distorted and horrible quality. I definitely would not download this app until they fix something. They have posted some responses to the reviews on how to fix it or whatever, but nothing I've tried has worked.

It USED TO BE a GREAT, top notch app about a year ago, until the layout changed, AND the vocals are knocked all to hell while singing a song!! Theres a delay in vocals keeping time with the music, and that's a real problem!! I used to pretty regularly get the VIP membership, and used to play on this app ALL THE TIME, but it's really messed up now, and I will never subscribe again, unless the issues are corrected, and even then, I would want a free trial to make sure, before I waste another dime.

Smule was my saving grace during quarantine. The android version was working beautifully, then all of a sudden...playbacks were awful. delayed tracks. failed uploads. I should be able to record, join and upload songs without an issue. I shouldn't have to mess with the vocal feedback to match the track and video during playback. That's annoying. FIX THE ANDROID APP.

1 star for andriod... what has happened team. Choppy audio playback, but i can record a whole song, join and sing the song, edit the reverb volume and all the works. The problem is when I hit done. It just fails to upload, every. time. The kicker... 5 star for apple version. Works flawlessly and never gives issues. Love the app and appreciate the team and work that's been put in. Hope this gets worked out, best wishes, happy holidays, and take care💙

Im going to leave this rating where its at until Smule makes this app run smoothly and even on the low budge devices. Currently running it on a Lemfo Lem T, which it records and everything except when you finish the song, it doesnt allow you save the song or edit the song or post it anywhere. It just goes back to the song list.. Im a VIP user, i switch devices constantly and for those of us who are constantly on the go should be able to pull out whatever devices that is available at your disposal and sing (business as usual). The only good news that I have is the fact so far that Smule karaoke app works great with my bluetooth headset FIIL T1X, only 40 to 50 us bucks. Doesnt make your voice sound over powering or under powered.

Been using this app for 5 years. The latest update for the video effects has absolutely RUINED the vocal part of this app. Can't sing through one song without a discrepancy.

Maybe if you are hit in the pocketbook you will fix the real issues you have now created.

So disappointed in the latest update. When recording a video while singing the song, the vocals never line up with the video anymore during playback. (maybe Android issue only? Didn't use to be). And now you can't choose your own sound fx when joining someone else. I pay $5 a month to have these options. May cancel if it doesn't change back soon. Also, please update so that Android users get the option to toggle through the song to choose where to add vocals just like iOS users get.

Sync Not Working for Months on VIP Membership - I have been a mostly happy paying customer for years but ever since you made all these updates, no matter what I do, my sync does not work on video. I prefer to record videos and each time, it is ruined by massive sync issues. Either my mouth is not synced to my words or the music goes in and out of sync throughout the song or both! Actually, usually both. This is very disappointing. Please fix this. I just want to sing in sync! Samsung Galaxy S10

I will give Smule a 5 when or if the syncing issues are fixed. After the multiple updates, its impossible to enjoy the recording experience. I've been singing with one earbud in because the lag is so bad. I loved Smule for 4 months. Its not fair that Apple IPhone users get to enjoy the experience with no problems. Support suggests using the voice slide to adjust the sync issues, but that doesn't solve the lag I hear when I'm attempting to record. Plz fix this. Thnx

I've been paying for a VIP membership for something like 5 or 6 years now and have loved it. This new update? It super sucks! Wheres all my vocal options?

If it doesn't change, and soon, I will be canceling my membership. ALSO, the lag that I'm experiencing with EVERY song is probably even more frustrating than not being able to turn the voice options off!

Completely disappointed! The updates have rendered this app useless for Android devices! It's much less singer friendly as well...you've taken away the ability to pick the sound setting that best fits the song or the person one is singing with. The fact that the only "fix" for androids is to use the voice match slider, is telling of the fact that you do not care about your android users. Fix your app! I'm ready to end my VIP status and quit using altogether! I do NOT recommend this app rn!

This app used to be fantastic. It has maintained a good song selection and community...however...you used to be able to manipulate your voice in a variety of ways and now you have the illusion of options. They added tons of new sliders and categories for your recordings but the only real option you have is reverb. If you record without video you will still have sliders to edit video when what you want is just the audio options. Its confusing as heck & not user friendly anymore.

I don't like this new update. Unlike before I can't choose a different voice effect for my voice. My favorite voice effect was "pop star" but now I can't use it. The automatic voice effect you're given when editing has a strong echo that I don't really like that much. I'd prefer the old version where I could choose my own effect over this version. I see this more of a downgrade rather than an upgrade.

Honestly this app was amazing back then (2014), but when I came back to it, it was surprising to see how it's taken a turn. Non-VIP users have limited access to songs, duos, and solos for themself, which led me to believe that this app is only beneficial if you purchase VIP (which is oddly expensive). This doesnt seem very fair..The audio quality is crackily and out of sync and the effects?? What happened? So much has changed for the worse, and I hope it all gets fixed in some way in the future.

I don't like the new update with the new vocal effects combined with the video effects. It just complicates things. I like before where you had seperate video filters and then after have the different vocal effects with just a couple of vocal type effect settings. Not you have combined everything as one and the vocal effects are different. It was work. G fine before and now I don't like it. Why change something that's not broken. Can you bring back the old settings.

I hate that you can't do solo without paying, and that it doesn't show you where in the lyrics you are so I'd be done with a line, and I sung it too fast and the app didn't tell me. So when I listen back on my recordings there'd be these awkward long pauses, trip ups in my sentences and me rushing to catch up. And it needs your email, audio, media and files, and more. I'd rather just sing to myself, it's 100% better than this garbage

I have been on this app for a long while but have had to change my review from 5 to 1 star. I used to be able to tweak the settings in super studio and a few other sound options as part of my paid subscription but I can no longer do that. I tend to do my recording from my car so these were helpful for the non-traditional recording space. I still enjoy the app but I will probably downgrade back to a free membership or leave if these options aren't restored. I really am disappointed.

I was really looking forward to using the app but the voice and video do not sync when I record.

Was hoping to have a lot of fun, ended up feeling frustrated and disappointed.

I was having so much fun on the app and the latest update completely ruined the app for me and by reading the comments it doesn't look like I'm the only one. The effects are really bad and make the voice sound worse. The effects need to be more for little improvements on the voice to make it sound a little cleaner not totally distort the voice to sound like a robot. Please fix and I will be glad to change my rating

What did you do to SMULE, DEVELOPERS??? used to worked fine in Android and now it's terrible, the only way I can sing with good sync is in my iOs smule account that by the way requires to pay an additional subscription, but for the one I have in Android is terrible, the video always gets out of sync and the audio has some performance breaks, and I have a powerful Samsung S10 Note plus phone. I'm so disappointed!!! I delayed this review, waiting to you guys to fix this, but seems you don't care.

I USED to love this app. But the newest update in October doesn't allow you to adjust the setting of your voice (super studio, opera, indie etc.) when you join someone else's song to match their vocals and make the song sound balanced. My voice is now delayed in almost every song and there's these cracking sounds. I haven't been able to record because of the apps new poor quality. I'm VIP, but if no improvements, Im afraid I'll have to unistall and stop payments. Please revert to old version

Smule, I have no clue what you did. But you screwed this one royally. I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ and the crackling is gone but other issues still persist. Video is off track from audio. And there are glitches in the audio. Used wi-fi and mobile data, cleared cache and data, uninstalled and reinstalled, restarted phone, problem continues. I have an annual subscription. I'm gonna need that back since y'all can't fix this. I've already spoken with support and you failed to correct this.

It's unfortunate that you can't pick your voice effect when joining others, can't change visual effects, and it just sounds off now. Whenever you record if you click out of the voice effect to adjust volume of your voice you CAN NOT go back to the effects. It needs fixed. Used to use it a while ago and recently got back on. Glad I only subscribed to one month VIP instead of committing to a full year again. I will say I like the globe and seeing where the other person is joining from.

Its not fun anymore which makes me sad. I used to love this app, but the new version is terrible. Please fix it!

HORRIBLE . This app was a huge gift after I lost my mom and all 3 of my dogs in 1 MONTH. Singing w smule helped me heal. After last 'upgrade' the app sucks. I can't sing solo bc the music is distorted & sounds horrible. If I join someone on a duo, music sounds fine. I've sung solo n a distorted track, not easy, and it sounds find on playback. The worst is trying to get help. Customer svc is the worst. Like no one cares. About to cancel svc. Unbelievable how mgmt allowed a top app to go to hell.

Was such an amazing app before this last update. Having the effect chosen for you is an absolutely horrible idea. Not everyone's voice will sound better in certain voice effects. I won't be using anymore till this is hopefully fixed. I loved being able 2 see the different effects some made my voice better & went better w/the different genres i chose to sing. You just stripped the people using the app of the best feature the freedom to choose the best vocal effect that best goes w/ the song.

Tons stating it, but the new update is awful. On top of everything by others I also get more glitches. Songs being saved early on their own, and now you can't go back into them you have to start all over. I can't change the voice effects anymore? It gets stuck on one thing or another and won't let me change even when changing a song. And the response to the bad reviews? Try styles. I don't want the styles, it's a singing app, and the singing has been totally sat aside in favor of flair.

I love this app, it used to be perfect!!!! Choosing your own sound and controlling the volume at any time now if you pick your sound, you can't go back once you hit the volume button!! Just please please please go back to the way it was, I got a membership for a year!! It was PERFECT the way it was!!!!!

I absolutely love this app, however it has started messing up. When I sing a song it sounds crackly, and my voice doesn't match the video. It falls behind. I've tried different headphones and it still did it. I've tried a bunch of different songs and it still does it. Please help!! Update: I contacted help desk, they asked for a link to a song that isn't syncing properly, I sent it to them and they still have done nothing! I'm so frustrated!!!!

The latest update is horrible! No effects, except default effects? This app was just about perfect, all it needed was to allow the user to hear their own voice through the headphones while singing, like other karaoke apps do. But no, they went a different route and completely nose dove right into the dirt with this new, very limited update. As soon as my month is up, I'm considering a cancellation and going somewhere else for karaoke unless they see the error of their ways and fix their mistake!

Used to be my favorite app. Been singing for over 3-4 years on this thing. I've seen how far it's gotten in that time. But the new update, however, is frustrating! No more effects? That's what made it fun, a cool thing, voice acting all the better. Now with this new update, it's stupid. I understand most want how the recording was and how good of a voice you have but sometimes we like to add effects. The fact that it's been stripped from us is a downgrade.

Song selection is very limited. Users used to be able to pick your preferred vocal type (my favorite was 'Polish'), after you finish recording, but now it was set to 'Super pop' and wouldn't let me change it. I just uninstalled this app for the last time, all I have to say about this app now is, "Good riddance."

I had this app a while ago, and I didn't really have any problems, I actually really enjoyed using it! I liked the different ways you could change the way your voice sounded, but now I'm really disappointed. I came back to this app and was confused when I couldn't change the effects. I wanted no effects, but I couldn't choose anything other than the "magic" option. I don't think I'll ever use this app again, I don't feel confident just posting videos of me with effects. In my opinion, I hate it.

I really used to love this app... I think 4 is where I'm at, I've had so much issue.... With all of these "upgrades" that have been happening it has made singing quite difficult. Our cover art has left and was replaced with a globe... A globe that is a lot of the time off... Not that I can say I wanted it anyways. But I want a version that works. Recently I've had timing issues as well, and it makes it extremely hard when I can never be in sync with anyone. Hh, please fix this....

Most of the time when I record a song and listen before saving it is perfect loud and clear. But after saving when I try to play it my volume is very low or no voice sound - music sound is there. Reinstalled many times still problem exists. Please make better versions for us android users too. We love smule and hope you will work on making android version better.

So I wrote a review back in 2016. At first it was good with a Note 5 and rated a 5 paying $4.99 a month, then when I updated the App the recording started to Lag when you sing and the music would sound staticky, Very Frustrating especially when your paying $7.99 after I had uninstalled, upgraded my phone to a Note 8 and then Installed the App again! It's now 2020 and I decided to try sing with other people. When recording it sounds good but after you listen to it, the music still lags or speeds up. Your voice comes out before the music plays or while singing that verse with your partner at the same time! No matter how many adjustments you make! Make Sense? IDK but in 4 years it seems you haven't fixed the issue or just don't care!! So my rating now went from 2 to1. Mind you I sang with a lot of people and was also in a group, now it's SAD that I hardly get to sing with them. I still try ONCE IN A GREAT WHILE but I Will NOT PAY! PLEASE FIX THE ISSUES THAT WILL WORK RIGHT FOR SAMSUNG USERS NOT JUST FOR IPHONES!

I have been using paid version of this app for couple of years. I've recently noticed changes in the app. Whenever I open the app, it automatically starts to play. If I scroll through the songs, it suddenly begins to play. When I go to my channel, the auto play next option has disappeared. I used to love this app but now with current modifications, I'm disappointed 😞. I wonder if anyone else has experienced this, and if developers are going to fix these bugs.

Amazing, yet limiting. The biggest flaw is that there are songs I would like to sing, but there are no recordings, for duets that you need to join. I am currently unemployed. And these prices would really bite a hole in my wallet, which I can't let happen. I'd gladly sing solo, but unfortunately that's not an option without VIP. Great app, yet once again, limited.

I used to love this app but it started momentarily freezing when recording and no matter what you do, it just doesn't sync up after that. It worked perfectly before. With so many complaining of the same thing, maybe the app should be reverted to its previous, non glitchy version. Just an idea. I won't be fooling with it any more for a few weeks or until there is an update and hopefully when I try it again it will be fixed because it has taken all the joy from this app

I've been using this app for three months. It worked okay but now that they have updated the app the sound quality on my Android tablet is terrible and also it keeps freezing when I try to upload my videos. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling several times and it keeps doing the same thing. I paid for VIP for a year so that I could record my own songs but now I feel like I wasted my money! They need to fix this app asap!

Messaging needs to be fixed. I know it's a new feature but why create it and let it die? It feels like you guys didn't test the resilience if it before launching. Please put some resources into improving the messaging feature. Pulling up messages sometimes are completely impossible and message notifications are usually off time.

I love this app. I have a few problems with the app. 1) video recording is often not in SYNC with the audio portion of the recording. 2) LYRICS TIMING IS WAY OFF. When I am trying to record many, if not most songs, the lyrics on the screen do not show up at the same timing of the actual music does. If I'm not sure of the songs words, I often don't sing parts of many recordings because the words are too late on my phone screen. Best karaoke app ever 👌!

For me this was a really good experience for a year or two, after I got a virus on my phone it ruined my experience, what happens is I get on and it's like any other experience with the app, but if I try to sing a song it'll either crackle and pop or sound slowed down and distorted (it doesn't matter the song it'll do it with any), I've deleted the app and reinstalled it, I've rebooted my phone and nothing works if my problem is fixed, I will rate 5 stars.

I like the app overall, but I severely miss the credit system. Not being able to open songs without paying the subscription fee makes VIP fairly meaningless and non-VIP frustratingly impotent. My other issue is not being able to rewind within a recording on Android. I used to have an iPhone, which could scroll back to a previous lyric in a song, but I have to restart completely with my current device. It's irritating.

The idea is wonderful, as I love singing. It is fun, but the music never lines up to the pitch lines. This can be corrected after the song is recorded, but this means you would have to sing it as you know it without listening to the music which, to me, kills a lot of the fun this app could bring. I have tried this app twice now, and it still doesn't work the way it should. I have tried many different songs and they all have this issue.

This app needs a lot of work. It was originally for apple and has a bunch of cool features on there like being able to pause your song, go back to a part you messed up on and redo it. Can't do that on android. The android version now has some weird static sound in every song that has nothing to do with the mic or device. It makes recording absolutely impossible because all you can focus on is the crackling static in the background of the recording. Please fix it.

I loved this app on my iPhone 6s. However I recently changed my phone to a Samsung S20 ultra and I can't use the app without a wired headset. The phone has no provision for a wired headset. Use of the earbuds or other Bluetooth headsets makes the experience painful with all the static and background noise. I was really optimistic about the app and even paid to be a VIP thinking it would be a good experience. Sadly not so

This is an amazing app. I have only one complaint. When trying to do a song, while the song is loading if it takes too long or if you switch networks while loading, it will instantly let you join the song and then cut you off after a minute or two. I tried exiting the song and going back in but it just instantly let me join and cut me off. I tried closing the app and opening it again but the same thing happened. I had no choice but to uninstall and reinstall the app.

I wanna give 4 stars, but I, like some others, are experiencing a lag in playback. I sing on time and then somehow I am behind. If I try to sing ahead to fix it during playback, I end up still being ahead. Sigh...if I use my computer, does it work better than on my phone? Help please and please fix the issue so that we can go back to singing great songs like when I first joined 4 years ago. Thank you.

I was excited only to be disappointed. Great for Apple, horrible for Android users. I used to have iphone and it sounded great, I switched to Samsung (Android) and man does the voice lag after recording. I would have thought after years of this app existing, they'd finally tweak it up. The button that's supposed help with that really is not much help.

I'm not enough space to describe the experience. Your voice gets badly out of sync. It is not a specific phone, it is all Android phones. it is not my ability to keep time. I have checked with the metronome. I've used this app for about 6 years and have thousands of followers. Considered buying an iPhone just so it's not a problem. I think I'm done with the App instead. You've had six years of patience. I get that asio is challenging. Fix it already or let me turn off monitoring. (0%vol != off)

I first stumbled upon this app through Apple's platform which was pretty good. I loved it! Yet with Android's platform it's missing some key features. A main one is being able to place landmarks while singing so if u mess up you don't have to start all over, just start from the landmark. Please put this feature in. This is very disappointing, I feel like I just wasted $70 for a year subscription.

I love this app, but its been glitching on me for months. It kicks me out of the app if I try to click on the profile button (little person silluete on the bottom right), so I can't look at bookmarked songs or past favorites. Today it glitched and went straight from "start song" to "song's over" 2x in a row. I don't have these problems on my iPad, but I should be able to use my Android just as well. I pay for my subscription, my app should work consistently.

I was initially having fun with no problems. Now, however, no matter what headphones or device I use, my voice NEVER syncs up with the song. During the recording, I am spot on with whomever I've joined, but every single time I go to listen to the playback, my voice is a second or two behind. I'm super disappointed. I was having fun practicing . Sadly, I am uninstalling. Game over.

The idea is great, BUT it has been so corrupted by greed that it's pointless. Dont get this the wrong way, I have nothing against VIP services in apps, but when the VIP service is near necessary to use said app, we start to have problems. You should, AT THE VERY LEAST, allow users to start and sing solos without having to pay a monthly fee that is more expensive than a premium subscription to Netflix! I don't really know why I'm writing this, since they will never read this, much less change it.

The people make it fun. I hate the weekly charge, and it's far too expensive. There also needs to be ability to edit a song by clipping the beginning or end if you mess up singing. There also needs to be goals like achievements. And being told "I sounded awesome" on every song regardless of my points isn't helpful to aid in improving my performance. Perhaps unlockable features like an animated avatar that performs the song sung, or earnable props for the stage the avatar sung on, plus lighting.

Did one recording, and listened to the playback....the instruments were echoed, the background vocals were off timing wise from the music. Tried to pull up two other songs to try and wouldn't let me sing solo, but I could join someone else and a couple of other options but only through paying for VIP subscription. Not worth it, for something I would only use once in a while. And from the looks of other reviews, a lot of people are complaining about recording quality and such too.

I like this app a lot. It's fun to do karaoke this way. But ever since the latest update, I can't properly record with my bluetooth headphones. The song skips and stutters the entire time during recording, and my recording sounds choppy and messy as a result. I have tried to record while connected to Wifi or while having strong signal with and without bluetooth headphones on--it only messes up with bluetooth. I haven't had this problem before and would appreciate it if it was fixed.

So, I loved the idea and still do, but I got onto the app and tried recording songs. I have a good singing voice and was singing pretty high, but when I started to listen to the audio it came out very mutilated and low. It didn't even sound like my voice. If I get a response saying this was fixed I might try it out again, but it wasn't my microphone on my earbuds because I tried unplugging them but it sounded the same. :/ Not impressed really.

UI for Android is full of bugs. Once I enter a livejam I can't exit it. Can't change my profile picture. Favoriting a recording does nothing. Sorting songs/recordings by most popular doesn't actually work. At the top of the list are items with 1000 or 200 views, and you scroll down and find items with 7,000. Sorting means nothing. On top of everything, $9.99 a WEEK? Way too expensive.

The app was working just fine for me until yesterday. I tried recording a song and when I played it before saving it my mic acted up. I tried recording myself using other apps and I sounded fine, so there must be something wrong with your app. You can hear my voice in the background of the recording, but over my voice is an awful sound that covers up my voice. Please fix this issue.

I was excited for this app, but after spending some time and money on the Smule app I find the user experience frustrating to say the least. The app is clunky and freezes on multiple occasions. Making the user experience sub par. Which needs to be fixed promptly. I'm also not very keen on how much echo I hear in the headphones while singing, but that's not a big deal. The biggest deal is being able to actually use the app flawlessly every time. Until the bugs are fixed, don't waste your money.

I've had this app now for over for years and I've been a very loyal customer. However since the last update I I have been unable to sing. after each recording I tried to match my vocals and no matter what I do there is a delay in my voice. Can you please make it available to where we can adjust the lag longer than 44 seconds to allow those of us who experience lagging issues? Otherwise, I'm going to have to cancel my subscription as there's no point in singing if I can't get my voice to match.

It's a decent app for closeted vocalists, and an app for your average person to have some fun with some karaoke. Overall decent app with a variety of different songs to sing of many genres. Only issue is that you have to pay to do a solo. If you can't afford to pay for premium, such as myself, this can be annoying, and it is. Although, I suck it up and duet with strangers anyways. The app has a friendly community, of which, I admire. If we didn't have to pay to do solos, it would be a five star.

I signed up for Smule and the 7 day free trial. It won't allow me to do anything. Can't upload a photo, can't sing a song... I can look around and tap on stuff but its like a dummy/demo version. Lame... I was excited to learn how to sing duets with my friends. Uninstalling and cancelling now :( Update: Once I heard from tech support and uninstalled/reinstalled the app, I was able to sing and record songs. The songs were a little glitchy at times, but it may have been my reception. I had a lot of fun with this app! Thanks Smule

Would not recommend--you get notifications for every little thing, the app keeps closing itself without warning, it uses a good chunk of space on your phone, you get a free trial week of singing solo and then you have to get VIP access that can go as high as $99.99 U.S, you constantly get ads for VIP access if you're not a member, you have to collab with people who actually HAVE VIP access if you want to sing but can't afford a subscription, you can't unlike things, etc. It's just not worth it.

Disappointing. UI is different than iOS version and very tedious to manage. Also voice goes out of sync all the time and it feels laggy (even though being connected to wifi). My iPod touch died and so I had to use Android version, but it's been a very frustrating experience. It would deserve a 5-star rating if it was more like the iOS version

The worst app ever!!! Tried record and it started glitching plus a lot of the songs have the wrong words not mention it doesn't save anything and what if you want to hear even a small playback but can't. On top of that you have to pay for it when you can't even get a free sample right. A joke. I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Wasted time I can never get back.

Cost too much. I love the app but it teased me with one free song cover and after that it was a monthly fee to keep using which I do not mind but it's too much. In this day of coronavirus every dollar you can save go a long way. In quarantine, this app would be perfect to pass some time but I'd be totally irresponsible to spend so much on an app that is not putting food in my kids mouths or paying a bill. If they lower the price I do believe more people would subscribe and they would make more.

I like the app and the amount of music available on it but A LOT of the songs will skip or freeze right in the middle of singing then it will pick up but when you play it back it's completely out of sync. It would be GREAT if it was available to use on PC as well not just a phone. I have a VIP subscription and it was on a pretty good deal at the time so I went for it. Overall I definitely feel that it's worth it, making it available on PC would make me a lifetime subscriber, right now I'm just on a one year sub and will have to wait and see. A whole lot of songs though that you won't find at karaoke bars so that's a huge plus. I have been using bluetooth headset for this and that could be the reason for the lag and skips so I will try some wired headphones with a better quality mic and see if that helps. I highly suggest this but if you get the free version it will be disappointing.

I used to LOVE this App. At one point I paid $5 a month for this app after realizing I can't do solo songs without becoming a VIP member. I loved it!! After a while I had to cancel my subscription and when I decided to renew my subscription I found that the price had gone up significantly more and is now SUPER expensive for an app that used to be decently priced. I loved the app. So many songs, duets were fun when you wanted to and the celebrities getting involved was awesome. But not for that $

There is a delay in recording which makes it impossible to join someone on a song and the end result is singing that doesn't match, is slow and off time. The live vocal feedback is slow and there is loud Echo It ruins all the songs. Please fix the delay. Also vocal feedback and sometimes recording DOESN'T work with wireless headphones. Yes I use Android. And I feel that may be why. So please improve the app for Android users.

For how much it costs, it should work better. I've tried on 3 different devices now, and if I do it with the video function, the audio is garbage. I've tried it on WiFi, mobile network, directly plugged into an internet connection and it's still crackly and choppy, freezes up. I also run into the issue where a song I've selected will say it's 4 minutes long, but anywhere from 20 seconds to 3 minutes in will just suddenly cut off and end the song. Not worth what they charge.

Good, but sucks on Android. I used it on an iPhone years back and it worked perfectly. I switched to Android, but it's not the same. My biggest issue is my mic feedback won't sync with the music in real time, so I can't hear myself when I sing. And it clips causing glitchy audio, vocals don't sync when I'm done with a song so constant post-production fiddling, etc. Been waiting a while for a fix, but nothing. Bottom line, if you're considering a subscription then do it with an apple phone.

Problems! I have had this app for YEARS! I just started getting into it again. I started recording, and things were going well. Then all of a sudden the time started to change(turning the timing up all the way doesn't always solve the problem) , the mic started to cut in and out (badly)! I thought that it was my headphones, tried a new pair, same thing! Went to another app (StarMaker) and had NOT one issue! I much prefer Smule, but it looks like I will have to switch!

Extremely disappointed, I don't want to sing songs w/ others all the time. I shouldn't have to pay to sing solo at all. I installed the game for me, not 'for me and strangers'. It ridiculous, what a joke. It used to be fun way back when, now APPARENTLY they just want money. You can only sing a few songs solo for free, and even then the timing on the tracks are all way off. I'd give it zero stars if I could, uninstalling.

I like the app but rated it 2 stars for a few reasons. One is because about 75 percent of the time to use something you are give a message that it's for VIP users and that means subscribing and paying for a monthly fee and also when I do choose even the free options, it sounds very nice while singing but at play back there is about a one second delay which ruins the entire song. Please fix and allow those that cannot afford the monthly fee to enjoy more options and hear our recordings on time. !

I love this app & pay yearly BUT there are features to be desired. I know it's considered like a karaoke app, but I really wish I could edit parts of my cover if I make an error, without having to redo the entire song. VIP members should have the option to re-record sections before posting. It would also be nice of we could organize our covers as well as our bookmarks and favorites on our channel with customizable folders, instead of just one huge long list of all songs we've done.

Okay so it seems like this is an okay game, it just has a bug. I've noticed some of the other reviews are about this too. When you are singing it doen't sync up with the sound. I tried without headphones too so no hate. I even tried to sing along with the guidelines but some of them were missing!! This is very disappointing. Please fix this. When you do you can call it thr number one singing app. ( Sorry if I sound rude I'm tryung to get a point across.)

The content and community make up for the shortcomings of the app itself, mainly the overly busy UI, lack of support for external filters, and buggy overall UX. If you subscribe via their web page, it's vastly cheaper than through the Play store, and yet that's not readily apparent. Also, if I've paid, please don't show me ads, even for in-app free content, within the app without providing a clear path to opt out. That's just bad business practice. Still, faults be darned, I give it a 5.

The voice changers aren't that great, below par when it comes to music apps. The songs listed as rock or alternative aren't rock or alternative music at all, it's all pop as far as I can see. The songs from musicals are ok, need a better selection of those. The VIP option is way too expensive. I would of loved this app if it had actual rock music and was more accessible for people. I really shouldn't have to pay for a subscription for solo. I firmly believe no one should download this game.

I loved the app there was many different options to do. But the only thing I hate is how when I listen to the recording it sounds like I'm off the beat. I double checked myself, on the beat, had other people check me, on the beat, and I even used another app, on the beat. This makes me feel less confident about my singing. Idk if others had this problem. Overall pretty good app where I can Express myself

It's rare I comment on an app but this one needed recognition. It's a great app to use for very convenient karaoke singing. I just wish there was a way to load in on my computer. One suggestion for a change is to be able to accompany your own songs, meaning maybe being able to harmonize with what you already sang.

Honestly, this app has been horrible since I downloaded it. I can't access my account and it keeps trying to get me to become VIP for songs that don't even work. None of the songs pick up my vocals at all, and there is always a horrible static sound. For the number 1 singing app this is extremely disappointing, I would not recommend this app to anybody.

Great song selection and the interface is pleasing and easy to use. But I have quite a few of problems with this app: Haven't found a way to mute the mic- Have to restart the whole song if you make one mistake, can't just redo one part. Voice editing tool needs to be redone - There isn't nearly enough customization to the effects. Have to pay $100 a year for VIP?? -If you aren't VIP you can't sing solo, you have to join somebody's song. The benefits of VIP are not good compared to the price tag

The app is not really working for me it will not let me go back to my profile page and every time I try it just kicks me off the game. Other then that it's a really good app it really fun and has no other major issues, it easy to use and you have suggestions of people you might like to sing with. I would totally suggest this to anyone who likes to sing and either wants a singing buddy or just wants to show off there voice, either way it's really fun and easy.

If you want any kind of variety in the app you had better be prepared to subscribe and pay for it. That combined with the terrible quality of videos and sound production. I only wanted the app to record singing along to things to get back into singing. I didn't need all the video and social aspect of the app, but if you're gonna do it make sure it works well at least. It's not the worst app ever, but I can just sing along with YouTube and record myself and not bother with all of this.

I friggin' love this app & it would be 4/5 stars if it weren't glitchy. 1) The profile page menu ["Channel", "Invites", etc.] won't scroll down most of the time. You should be able to scroll down from touching any point on the page, but it only works if you can get your thumb below 90% of the fold, an area often ocluded by other items, like the song now playing & the static footer general nav menu. 2) My bookmarked songs disappeared entirely & I can't find them. 3) Favorites often don't show up.

I love this app I buy membership on and off when I have the urge to sing for a month and it's great. However I am so tired of the on and off crackling sound I get in the background of my songs depending on the games latest update. Sometimes everything is fine but others I get background crackling noises that are not coming from my headphones or my microphone (I have switched both things out multiple times to try to get rid of the sound and it doesn't make a difference).

Half of the people on Smule can't sing and I know that's not the app's fault, but everytime I join a song its 1 to 2 seconds behind so when I listen to it, it's off and it makes me mad. If I'm gonna be off by a couple seconds everytime, then what's the point of singing it and having the app. Other than that, they have a variety of songs so if you search a song, it'll most likely be listed.

It's a great app and I enjoy singing on it, but someone needs to seriously fix the android problem. I have an android and it messes with volume after I've set it, it will turn it quiter then the volume I set it at. Then if I want to redo a song I have to ask someone with an apple phone to hide the part because it doesn't give you the option to hide on android at all, making it very hard in group songs.

I love the app, but it would be so much better if we were able to save songs as drafts to finish later, and be able to redo a certain part (even after posting too). Shouldn't be hard to do if starmaker can do it. Once you mess up, you can't go back and have to start all over. Editing would be a huge gamechanger. Also, when you accidentally "like" someone's song you cannot unlike it. It's frustrating, please fix this. Otherwise it's a really fun app.

I've tried two songs already and the synchronization is completely off, making everyone sound bad. Not to mention that this app will pester you to spend money on it after every session. At least you can join sessions with other people who have purchased that, but passed that, I'd recommend just doing karaoke in person.

Great for beginners looking to learn and hold simple notes (not completely knocking it) but for vocalists, it's not worth the time. Ads got me interested but functionality lost me. Great beginners app but not one for those who can already hold a tune. Go for it if you're starting out but it's far from that which can accurately assess vocalists.

Pay to play? No thank you! I was suggested this app by a friend. I thought I was going to like it, but it basically forces you to pay to use it if you want to sing solo. And I deleted three recordings before I found the sync up and fixed the voice/music sync problem. There's no tutorial, no warnings that you get ONE free solo- WHICH I DELETED BECAUSE OF THE SYNC ISSUE! Nothing on how any of the options work. I'm cancelling the free trial and uninstalling.

Used to love this app and used it all the time, downloaded it to today to see that when youre done recording they misalign the sound so much that there is not enough room on the alignment bar (one of the settings after recording) to fix it! Never had a problem with this before but now I can't stand to hear myself played back bc it's a half second off from everything else(this is in the "join" Option so it really matters to match your partner when your sing. Overall extremely disappointed. FIX.

There is a problem with the lyrical timing. It's been 2 days and so far each song has been out of sync. It's a great idea but unfortunately, it shouldn't be difficult. I love the freestyle option (since it's the last resort). Smule needs to contact their developera and inquire if this could be result of a time zone issue.

Would have been 5 stars BUT I cannot use any Bluetooth device with the app. This is a nuisance since there is no headphone jack port. I've tried multiple bluetooth devices earbuds, wireless speaker, receiver, car stereo. They all do the same thing: the audio is choppy, it cuts in and out many times a second and plays at about 1/4 speed. This is on a Google Pixel 2 XL running 8.1 Oreo. ATTENTION SMULE: PLEASE FIX THIS!! Aside from that the app is great!

since the last six minths there is a sporadic issue where the recording skips briefly for a split second. this has been frustrating since i then have to redo the collab. basically i have stopped using Android to record and have switched to iPhone. i think this should be a high priority to fix. i have tried everything i can think of on the phone. i thought they should have fixed it by now. i have been singing here for almost 3 years.

This is the best app ever. Really honestly the most used app i have. Only one suggestion, for 10 bucks a week, i think that we should be able to skip forward and backwards in the recording of songs, so if your part 2, and you are say, rerecording because of an error ect. You don't have to keep listening to the same part one over and over. Or if you make one little mistake you don't want recorded, you don't have to rerecord the entire song. Kudos to the devs. Great app.

It is fun, but since the last update, everytime I record my singing, when I listen to it at the end, it sounds like it was rushed. It makes it hard for me to want to finalize the songs I sing at all and makes me end up giving up on most of them. UPDATE 8/11: They changed the purchasing methods now, instead of 10$ per month, it is 10$ per WEEK now and 20$ per month, which is too expensive for such a small amount. Won't be using for a long time now.

I have had experiences with Smule in the past but ever since 2017, I have noticed a "Big problem" every time I go to sing the track is way off with my vocals, and I knew for a fact I'm singing in tempo with the song and my earbuds are working properly. Honestly I loved Smule in the past I was in tempo with the songs but now I sound like I'm singing very slowly, and it's frustrating. Probably best if I don't use any singing app. 😖😤☹😢

I give this app 3 stars because its great other than having to use headphones and it not syncing up while using them. You have to sing slower than the actual beat for it to be recorded in sync with the song when you play it back. its really frustrating. So I mostly sing without headphones, but its not as clear. And also 10/week is a bit much 🤷🏾‍♀️

it is a great experience, the only problems I have in countered isn't that bad, the issues are. -smule crashing the 1rst time while starting up the app. -smule crashing(pretty uncommon) -and a stutter in songs that cause mic audio to lag. none of the formerly mentioned issues affect the overall experience, however I think that if it can be, that the mic lag issue should be fixed, as it catches me off guard and commonly leads to me having to start over due to my perfectionist tendencies.

As I sing, the app always seem to pause right in the middle of recording. it's so annoying! why does the app do that during a recording session? I'm using Android and if the app is not working on Android, you shouldn't release it and except people to pay for something that doesnt even work on the platform that the app is released on. Please fix the issue.

I gave 3 stars mainly for the value this app adds. taking off 2 stars because it's extremely glitchy and the number of bugs are rediculous. (especially in the live jam feature and Android messages) The pace at which the bugs are fixed is also extremely slow. Makes me wonder if the foundation of the app is shabby or if there are any engineers in the company who have taken close interest in the app at all. The voice filters while recording songs are awesome however, and recording is glitch free.

The app itself is great. You get to hear so many different takes on songs youve heard on the radio since you were a kid. However sadly I cannot sing too. Something about this app messes with every microphone I own. From phone, to stand, to headset, to ear buds not one will properly record me. Instead it seems to listen for someone elses voice. Before you say I should have headphones on, I do. Ive tried changing those and the mic. Ive tried every combination possible but not one works. :/

So very fun! This app is filled with very positive people, and has many song selections. My only complaint is if you want to do a solo, you need to scowr the duets to see if anybody was kind enough to give you a free one (they don't sing any parts.) I feel like they should give you a point system where if you sing enough things, you get a certain amount of points so you can do a solo. But this app is still very fun to use.

The VIP pricing is ridiculous. I used to have a smule subscription that cost $4.99 a month. now, its $9.99 for a week...A WEEK!!! That's more expensive than a monthly subscriptuon to most steaming services! A monthly subscription? $19.99 more than a premium monthly Netflix subscription. Yes, you can do it for free if you do duets and things, but paying that much for a karaoke app that isn't even karaoke! Half the songs still have vocals over top! It's ridiculous.

I wish it had some of the features that the iOS version has.. such as being able to redo a certain verse rather than restarting the whole song if you mess up. Also it skips.. a lot. I'm lucky when I get a clean recording because of all the pauses and skips it does usually.. it's very frustrating. I want to enjoy this app but some of the bugs in it make it hard to.

I've been using this app for a few years now, and have even loved it enough to get VIP status. However, my problem is when I try to download the app on a new device (I had to get a new phone) it doesnt not allow me to log back in to my old account. This has happened at least twice now and is incredibly infuriating to lose countless recordings and starting over every time. I finally gave up and deleted my entire subscription as well as the app.

Whenever I want to practice my vocals or just have fun my mind automatically goes to: Smule!!!! You can replay your videos to find your flaws and even improve on it. I wish the app allowed you to have more choices for certain music and solos instead of having to pay. Other than that,the app is great for anyone that wants to improve on singing and or socialize with others. You can even sing with your favorite artists!

when I switched switched over to android it changed everything. used to love this app but the new platform is terrible and I can't use it anymore. Can't sing songs on my own that I've uploaded anymore without a subscription and that kills it for me. the singing itself glitches and I cant go back and fix parts in between. I'm very disappointed with what's happened to the app since I changed phones.

I want to love this app and have become a paying subscriber for the second time but the lag on playback is unacceptable. I have an android phone and it doesn't matter if I use headphones or don't, vocals and music sync while recording but way, way off for playback. I have tried everything on my end to resolve this - it's a dysfunctional app as is.

In general I love the app. I love to sing and have fun.Just a little issue that I hope you guys will fix, If I decided to listen a song, I have to keep manipulating the phone to be able to heard the total length of the recording, it is kind of annoying while you are busy doing something else. the phone closes the app.Could be my phone settings but, honestly I think is the app. please can you look into it Thanks.

I have been using this app for years with minimal issues. that changed a month-and-a-half ago. every time I'm recording the song it keeps cutting out skipping and ruining the whole singing experience. I asked for my $10 back for the month pass that I paid for and they are playing games with me sending me email after email asking me over and over again what the problem is. at this point I think they're just playing games. beware there are glitches in Smule.

Honestly, I don't mind the app, I actually rather like it. My only issue is that if I REALLY want to sing a song, I have to wait for someone ELSE to record it and then duet with them. The option to make a recording for someone else to join is always greyed out, even when it says it's free. I'm not buying a subscription just to record one or two songs I really like, especially since I listen to songs that many people don't know.

Dont know what happened to this app recently but if they've added a function where you have to fix your syncing everytime, you can tell its gone downhill. I will be cancelling my subscription. Stop updating apps for needless bells and whistles and improve functionality. Never used to have a problem with it, but now singing on this app is a chore, what a shame.

I used to absolutely love this app when I was like 10. But it's gone further downhill even more since I was last on it. You can sing absolutely NOTHING without dueting or paying an absurd amouny of money to do so. You can barely customize your profile without paying money. Singing itself is glitchy, with the song freezing at random moments, the audio having a delay in the final product, & electronic feedback even with new headphones. Dont download. Money-grabbing and low quality.

I personally love the amazing song library and fantastic arrangements! What drives me crazy is that if you're making a video there seems to be no way to rewind. So if you get three quarters of the way through the song and flub a note, you have to start back from the very beginning again. Now, this is on my phone; perhaps it's different on the computer, but if there's no way to rewind to fix a mistake, that might be a dealbreaker for me. Torn.

The singing experience is really worth 5 stars. But my rating is for the app as a whole. User-friendliness needs a little improv. Deleting recordings or bookmarks is inconv. with the page refreshing each time. Please allow for multiple selections of recordings and bookmarks at a time. I suggest long-press on a recording and then displaying options overhead is better than side-menus(3 dots). Just like a normal Android messaging app. Also, please integrate livejam with Android.

I love this program but I'm leaving my reveiw until this bug is fixed.

This app is no good at all on Android. If you mess up, you can't set up a marker to go back and try again and your audio doesn't sync together well. When you speak into the mic, your audio is delayed by a second sometimes. But thankfully, I'm upgrading to an iPhone in a few days so I'll be able to get back to this app with no problems at all.

I'm really happy that this app changed and gives non-members a chance to actually sing. The system before was broken, and made it virtually impossible to sing without spending money. The app is easy to navigate, and it's a lot of fun singing duets with others. I love the features, but one improvement I'd like to add is the option to re-do a part you messed up on after you're finished recording a song. That'd be amazing. I'd also love to be able to save songs as drafts. Thank you for this app. :D

This app used to be perfectly fine when it was out for the 1st 3 months but now it is terrible. First of all I want to start with the payment method, what is the use of making the app "FREE" when you download it but now it says you have to pay to show off your recordings. Next is how bad the quality has become, it was perfectly fine until now, it's all scratchy and you can barely hear yourself over the other person no matter how loud you are or how high you turn up your volume when editing.

I absolutely love this app I've been using this app when it was Glee karaoke. I recently got back into it and haven't had any issues up until this weekend when I try to record the playback is very staticy. Not sure if this is something that is just happening with me or if it's happening with everyone else on the app but it's making it very difficult for me to record and have a very clear playback to post and share.HELP!

I wish there was an easier way to utilize a real mic with the app, like being able to use the program on a desktop. I like the collaborations and the option of singing the song solo as well. Although convienent for the novice, I often prefer the raw recordings through a mixer, sans the auto turned sound of some of the equalizer options.

I really wish I could use this app on my Android device like I did on my iPad, but literally every single recording is several seconds behind the audio. Apparently most people using Android have this issue, but it seems a bit ridiculous considering how long ago Smule was released. Fix the issue and I'd consider signing up for the subscription. K, thanks.

if I could leave 0 stars I so would. I have a Samsung galaxy s6 plus and the quality of every single song sucks. it keeps on cracking since the beginning to the end of the song to the point that you lose track of it and even the desire to keep on singing. I deleted this app years ago because of the same reason but decided to give it a second chance hoping they fixed but stills terrible. I'm paying for this app also so please FIX IT. Show some appreciation to android users.

Neat idea, but lags so bad! Adjusting the vocals to match the tempo of the music is a huge pain and doesnt work as it should. Sometimes the pacing between the song and the moving graphic is off and it's extremely distracting. Dont worry though, even if you sing right in tune and tempo with the music, you'll still be recorded 2 seconds late, causing you to fuss with settings for 10 minutes before giving up altogether. Ugh.

I upgraded to the 39.99 yearly subscription (promotion) but was charged 2 more monthly subscriptions before I noticed. Can't get through to Smule and my refund request was denied by Google. Can someone help? Other than that, I like the app. There are miscellaneous things that could be better but that's a laundry list of quality of life issues.

I'd say that this is a prettt good app for those who love to sing, but I do have one complaint: for those who don't want to spend money on this, they cannot access certain songs they love. It used to be where you watched a couple adds for points to unlock songs, but you can't do that anymore. I would probably use this app more if we could do that again. Nevertheless, it is amazing.

A great time share. If you love to sing or just enjoy taking the vocals for a fun leisurely spin This really is a great app. It has so many no add features and so easy to use as a solo or with others. Here...YOU decide. It's the best I've seen. You can record w or w/o video Just so many options. The updates have never been disappointing.

I love it because the people there are so Awesome. After a while they feel like family & singing with them is such a joy. It's great fun! I love too, that you can work on improving & expanding your abilities & knowledge or just have fun with it. It's really up to you to make your own experience what you want it to me. You can interact as much, or as little, with others as you'd like. Competition opportunities abound & you can join groups and socialize with like minded others to the extent that you're comfortable or not, as well. I don't want to be without it now! There are problems from time to time with reording or accessing parts of the program. Sometimes it acts hinky...and there's no way to contact support directly, but you can email support for assistance & the response tends to vary with issues. Also, wired headphones are still necessary as the recording quality is either poor or not operational with Bluetooth. That's a problem for some people. Overall, I enjoy it very much and definitely recommend this app for everyone! Regardless of ethnicity, location, gender, talent, or social & musical preferences, you will find plenty of good music and great camaraderie any day or hour! Have a great time and come sing with me!😁

Every time I try it skips like a cd would or freezes no matter how many times I restart the don't or reset the app or my phone. Nothing is helping. I'm getting frustrated this just started about a few days ago. I cant even join people's duets because of it. I'm really getting tired of it. I would really like to sing and record soon.

It's amazing! The only thing I don't like about it; almost everything requires you to be a VIP, and being a VIP is freaking expensive... I mean, right when I asked to get it they said 'no' without even considering how limited people who can't get it can be. Some people can't pay, and it's kinda frustrating when you can't make at least your own recordings, or sing a duet with a friend who can't affors it as well. That's my only compliant though~ Other than that it's really good~!

I think its a okay free app, you cant do much other than join other people's songs. There is no way to only let specific people join a collab, once you join and post a collab you can't delete it, some people take it Abit too seriously along with the fact that the version you sing isn't a copy of the song with your voice posted just to your page. It is a set and done version that can't be then altered by anyone involved. I wish they had something where you can spot check songs you didn't do great on instead of having to re-sing the entire thing. Same for the vocal filters.

There is a huge delay between the music and vocals and no way to sync them up. That and other apps have a larger selection of songs and features. I just uninstalled because I've sent in a complaint about this months ago and nothing changed after the last update. This used to be a fun app until nothing worked right anymore.

You guys need to fix this for Android, there is far more you could figure out because I swear there is so many bugs when it comes to the audio syncing and quality. Mine will sound fine and then just go out and sound dull and that's also when video goes wack too. It's never been nice on Android since I can remember but I only have one apple device and it's pretty outdated I don't feel like using it being I don't even have a charger for it 🤷

Idk if it's my new phone or the update but the voice playback is always off with my singing and then it confuses me and I sound awful. It was perfect before when you could hear what you sang when you sang it. I liked when the song was paused too and I could try out the different sounds. As I said idk if this is just my new phone or the update but it's just frustrating
