  • Smule introduces song-specific video effects (SmuleStyles)

    Smule has introduced a new feature called “Smule styles” or “templates”. It’s a combination of audio and video effects specific to certain songs. So instead of using the generic filters like Paris, Rio, Oslo and so on, you can create a solo or collab that has the feel of a music video for that specific song. Here are two examples:

    There is a new banner in the app which highlights open calls using these filters and you can also search for the tag #SmuleStyles. Here are a few songs which currently have templates, when you pick the OC from the official Smule songbook:

    • Sorry not sorry by Demi Lovato
    • Into the Unknown from Disney’s Frozen 2
    • Take on Me by A-Ha
    • Kings & Queens by Ava Max
    • With a little help from my Friends by The Beatles

    Of course you can also open songs yourself using these filters. If you open a song from the official songbook that has a template, you will see a preview on the splash screen and a button to turn the template on or off (see image below). With a template activated, the usual settings for audio and video filters are turned off.

    Hi. Thanks for the info. I did notice this new feature. But, just to clarify...these templates are only available for these songs you listed, right?  Coz you have that statement, "Of course you can also open songs yourself using these filters", but only for songs that have templates already.  There is no library yet of templates that one can choose from for any song one might like to open. For any song (other than the ones listed), one's choices for filter or effects are still only Classic, Rio, etc.

    Thanks again. Keep up the good work.

    There are probably more to come in the future. But sure, since they are specifically made for these songs, they can’t be used on other songs.

    My friend opened an OC with a template he created and every time I try to join my part of the vid is not using his template.  I can’t figure it out for the life of me.  Other people have joined him and theirs is the same but mine isn’t....help?

    I have another question about the video effect. I saw somewhere on Smule saying something like "turn on the camera to take photos and use face swap feature, etc". And I actually saw some video that the joiner swapped face with the opener. It looks kinda cool. My question is can we really take photos or swap face when joining a video OC? And how to do it ? Please share your experience if you know. Thank you.

    Has this been answered? My friend just joined my Style Video oc but the style didn't come out.
