Smule, which makes a variety of music-related iPhone apps like Guitar!, Magic Piano, and AutoRap, has a new version of its popular Sing! Karaoke app out today with a major feature for the app: video. The new version of Sing! Karaoke, which features “a huge catalog of top hits” with instrumental tracks and lyric guides for singing along to, does three things with the newly added video feature.

9to5Mac Happy Hour

First, Sing! Karaoke now lets you record a video of your performance during a song using the camera on your device. You can flip between the front and back camera for this.

Next up, Sing! Karaoke’s video features extend to the app’s collaboration capability. This means you can perform duets with other Sing! Karaoke users from anywhere in the world and still capture video. The app even does mixing and rendering for you so the end result comes out looking edited nicely.

Finally, videos that you record in Sing! Karaoke can be saved either privately or publicly. After that, you can share your video (including private ones) to friends over Messages, email, Twitter, and Facebook. The new video features should be a lot of fun and a nice addition to the Sing! Karaoke app.

The latest version of Smule’s Sing! Karaoke is available for free on the App Store for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
