- App with 100 m+ downloads sees 500,000 hours of user generated performances recorded in past year
- New video editing feature lets fans produce homemade music videos plus new personalized community-based feed for greater content discovery
Montreal, May 25, 2021 – Yokee Karaoke, the most popular and innovative karaoke app on the market today with over a million monthly users, has today unveiled an extensive update to the #1 ranked karaoke app which has seen a 50% increase in its number of daily active users.
During the last year, over 500,000 hours of user generated content have been recorded, the equivalent of nearly 10 million performances of Tones And I’s global hit ‘Dance Monkey’, the app’s most popular track. Capitalizing on this boom, in part driven by the app’s community having more time to record at home, users will now be able to unlock their inner music video producer whilst also remaining the star of the show. With the new Music Clips feature, which supports hands free recording, users will be able to shoot videos that can be soundtracked separately by previously recorded versions of their favorite song.
Alongside the app's professional sounding audio effects, Yokee Karaoke’s fully realised visual and musical experience offers fans the opportunity to show off their love for their favorite artists and flex their creative flair for the whole community to see.
In addition to the Music Clips feature, the app has also introduced an advanced machine learning-powered feed, bringing together a highly personalized selection of the best in-app performances based on region, performance interactions, engagement parameters and much more. This new feature will empower the community to decide how they get to experience Yokee’s fun and always entertaining content.
A dynamic party in your pocket, Yokee Karaoke features an extensive catalogue of 100,000 licensed songs and fan favorites including many of the world’s greatest hits by the likes of Billie Eilish, Queen, Daddy Yankee, BTS, The Weeknd and hundreds of other artists. In December, Yokee’s extensive and active community garnered international attention after recording an en-masse rendition of Bill Withers’ classic ‘Lean On Me’ as part of the The Yokee Project, highlighting the power of music to bring people together, even during the testing times of the pandemic.
