Musical.ly is an app where you can post videos of you lip-syncing parts of your favorite songs. This app can be downloaded on Apple and Android devices. Anyone can follow you and you can follow them. There are so many cool features that you just have to check out.

If you are worried about privacy, then you can create a private account that will send you notifications if someone wants to follow you. When someone is following you, they can see all of your uploaded musicals except for ones that you save privately. There are also sections of different voices that you can lip-sync, such as the comedy section.

Some people even become famous from musical.ly. If you get a certain number of followers, you will have a crown next to your profile picture.

If you want to have your own voice on musical.ly, then all you have to do is hit the “+” on the bottom of the screen and hit “shoot first,” then record. There is also a feature called “Live Moment” where the screen will start to flash and it will take about five pictures really quickly. After the pictures are taken, they will be combined together to make a fast-motion slideshow. It is a pretty cool feature and you should see what amazing things people can do with it.

At school, everyone is reenacting musicals that they do on musical.ly. People even form groups about a song. We are in a group, the Skylar Squad, which was created after seeing a musical about a spoiled girl named Skylar and her friend Inez. We can get really silly.

Musical.ly is an incredibly fun and amazing app that you might want to check out. What are you waiting for? Kids love it.
