What you need to know

  • Apple and Samsung brought Apple Music to some smart TVs earlier this year.
  • Those same TVs now also support real-time song lyrics, too.
  • TV models from 2018 through 2020 should be good to go.

Home karaokes just got easier with Apple Music's real-time song lyrics now available on compatible Samsung TVs.

As reported by Macerkopf and MacRumors, Apple Music's real-time lyrics will work on Samsung TVs whose model year was 2018 through 2020. Presumably, anything launching from now on will also support the same feature, too.

Real-time song lyrics allow music fans to see the lyrics as the song progresses. It's perfect for anyone who wants to be able to sing along and is a feature that's already available on other platforms.

Anyone with a compatible TV can download the Apple Music app from the Samsung Smart TV App Store and use their existing Apple ID to sign in. Anyone who doesn't have a subscription can sign up from within the app, too. They can also take advantage of a cool three-month trial as well.
