Since its launch in August 2012, Sing! Karaoke has been enabling you to sing popular songs with your friends and other users from around the world. And now, the global karaoke party app developed by Smule is enabling you to forge deeper and longer-lasting connections with your fellow “Singers” with the introduction of a messaging feature.
Well, thanks to the app’s latest update, you can now exchange messages with other Sing users right within the app, and without having to lose sight of one another’s messages in the comments at that.
To get started with Sing’s built-in messaging feature, just go to the app’s notifications tab and tap the chat bubbles icon at the top left corner. You can then initiate a conversation with any of your friends on Sing. You can also start chatting with someone by tapping the Message button on that user’s profile.

In addition to one-on-one chat, Sing’s messaging feature allows you to engage in group chats. The more, the merrier, as they say.
With messaging in Sing, you can easily share covers, send invites, and get and keep in touch with the people you wish and like to collaborate with.
Sing’s new messaging feature includes various controls to protect your privacy and to suit your preferences.
For one thing, Sing lets you block specific users from messaging you. For another, messages from Singers you don’t follow are separated from the main Inbox and sorted into the Other section, and you won’t receive notifications about them — a setup that is similar to that of Instagram.
And speaking of notifications, you can toggle notifications for a specific chat or for all chats in Sing’s settings section, where you can also toggle read receipts.
