How to get the Video Styles if you don’t yet have access?!

Ever wondered what it would be like if we could create music video styled videos on Smule? Well, we are getting there with VIDEO STYLES – a new feature on Sing! That allows you to be more expressive with videos. These videos are a combination of colors, transitions, effects, animations all while timing perfectly to the music! Right now, there are three different pre-made styles you can select from: #RioStyle, #OsloStyle, and #PetraStyle

We are slowly rolling out this feature to users, however we don’t want to overload our video processing technology by giving this feature to everyone.

Here are ways YOU can do right now to get the effect!

1) You can search #RioStyle, #OsloStyle, and #PetraStyle in the search box to find cool duets you can join, and the new styles will be applied.

2) You can join some power users right now!

Smule star Liam meets hero Shawn Mendes

Dream big, put yourself out there, and you never know who you’ll meet.

It’s not every day we get to tell a story like this one. Meet Liam, the talented 4-year-old who’s been taking Smule by storm:

MeetLiam

Liam discovered his love for music at the ripe age of 2. When he’s not melting the hearts of the internet, Liam enjoys soccer, playing guitar, and rocking out to his favorite artists: Frank Sinatra, and Shawn Mendes.

Around 10 months ago during the #SingWithShawn event, Liam seized the moment & recorded this masterpiece:

The video swarmed social media, gaining millions of views, retweets, hearts & smiles. Guess who noticed?

On August 11th, with the help of loving parents Luke and Monika, Liam made it happen. Backstage at a show in Toronto, Liam was face-to-face with his idol Shawn.

We love Liam’s story, because it shows that he had the courage to reach for the stars. What’s Liam’s advice to others? Put yourself out there, make something, never stop singing. Actually, he’s more articulate than we are, Let’s hear it from the man himself:
