Zoom is a popular video conferencing software option. It is ultra easy to set up and use. After a few clicks you will know exactly how to do karaoke on Zoom and can start interacting with all of your relatives & friends.
It has been a lifeline for many people during the Covid pandemic who could not visit the people closest to them due to imposed restrictions.

How To Do Karaoke On Zoom
. Create a Zoom account if you don't already have one. It will take around 10 minutes & is absolutely free.
. Visit Zoom.us
. Use the Orange Button top right to sign up using E-Mail, Facebook or Gmail account.
. Download Zoom App following all prompts.
. Select a song - Karaoke App or YouTube.
. YouTube is easy, simply search for the song you want & "Karaoke". You will see a video with instrumental audio & lyrics on the screen. Alternatively you can use Spotify or a karaoke app if you prefer.
. Sign into Zoom on your browser & click either join / host a meeting where you will enter an ID provided by the host, or host a meeting.
. If you are hosting, simply click 'Launch' meeting and this will then open up your Desktop App. If you are not already signed into the app you should do so.
. Check audio / share your screen.
. Ensure that your screen is shared - Bottom of the screen next to 'chat & record'. If you have more than one screen you can choose which to share & make adjustments to the screen. You will then see the area you are sharing highlighted in green on your screen.
. Un-mute your mic, you will find this on the bottom left of your screen.
Your friends will also need a Zoom account to join in the fun. You can add them by clicking 'Participants' at the bottom of your screen. They will also be given an ID so that they can join the party too.
When hosting a karaoke party on Zoom you might find that the audio quality is not up to scratch. There are a few ways you can improve on your Zoom experience.
. Use a mic, as this is by far the best way to improve audio quality.
. If you enable 'Stereo' in your audio settings this will also make a difference.
. To reduce echo, hold your Zoom meeting in a room that contains plenty of fabrics such as cushions, chairs & rugs.
. For group songs & duets let your friends turn on their audio and share the screen with lyrics video.
. Last but not least close browsers / windows that are not in use to speed up the app.
NB - The free Zoom plan has 'meeting time limits' depending on how many people are joining in. So rather than finding your karaoke party ending abruptly you should make sure to check out the time & guest limitations beforehand.
Now you are ready to put on your best party gear, grab a 'hairbrush' and rock the night away at your Zoom karaoke party with all your friends & family. Sounds good to me !!!
