Since December 2022, Apple has included a Karaoke feature with all Apple Music subscriptions. It's called ‌Apple Music‌ Sing, and it lets users sing along to their favorite songs by adjusting the volume of the vocals in tracks.

introducing apple music sing
Available on iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV 4K (2022), ‌Apple Music‌ Sing works with ‌Apple Music‌'s real-time lyrics feature, and gives you control over a song's vocal levels. This means you can sing along with the original artist vocals or turn the vocals down and take the lead.

When there's background vocals in a song, the vocal lines sung simultaneously can animate independently from the main vocals to make it easier for you to follow. And if there's a duet or more singers, multiple vocals show on opposite sides of the screen to make them easier to sing along to. Apple says that "tens of millions of songs" support the feature.
