  • Smule launches in-app group feature



    Smule singers have been creating groups since the app exists, but there was never any direct support for it in the app. People had to use hashtags to connect their accounts or songs to a group or set up additional Smule accounts, which was difficult to handle, since account switching is also not a feature currently. 

    But handling groups just go a lot easier, since there is now a dedicated feature for it in the app. It is available in the iOS version and on the website. In the Explore tab of Smule on iOS you can browse through new groups. If you hit the plus button there, you can create your own groups.

    Groups can contain up to 1000 members and each Smule user can create up to 3 groups.  The creator of the group is the “owner” and each group can only have one owner, who has administrator privileges.

    Groups are always public, but you can decide if people can request to join (with or without automatic approval) or whether the group will be invite-only. Once Smule users are part of a group, this will also be shown on their profile and the groups can be accessed from there. The group page shows the members and “posts”. These posts can currently only be songs, both published collabs and open calls. All members of the group can post. 

    By the way: The Sing.Salon also has a group page. Feel free to join it if you are registered member of the Sing.salon: https://www.smule.com/s/smule_groups/35008

    I created a group. I can drop my invites and any duets I have joined, but I cannot drop the duets when someone joins me. I cannot figure out the problem.

    Yes, that is how it works currently.

    I don't see where I have the option to add SingSalon or any groups other than my own. I've seen people with more than one showing up, but I'm not sure how they did it.

    If you want to JOIN a group, not create it, you would need to find the group page first. That isn’t easy at the moment. There is no proper search function or any kind of sorting available yet. It will probably come later. You can of course access the groups by following the group links on user’s profile pages.

    I went to your page and clicked the group yet nothing happened. I'm currently on a pc. Must I be on an IOS device?

    The same thing happens to me , I am on my iOS phone but I’ll can’t find Sing salon in the list of groups on the app, is there a way you can send an invite?

    So after i created a group in the app group feature, can i post all group video collabs previously done by our group there? Or is it just for posting current and future collabs?

    Ohh, the smule app of course. We (group members) can post collabs in that site, so does it include all the collabs that were made even before the group button created?
