However, there is a serious disadvantage. Many users complain that the sharing works pretty badly.

Mic for Android

mic-logoIf you love singing but don’t have a microphone, you can’t do without this amazing app. Like other apps listed here, it transmits the sound of your voice into a Bluetooth speaker (it can be a stereo system, for instance). 

The app is very simple to use. You don’t need to create an account to start, downloading Mic and giving it the permissions it asks for is enough. 

Let’s see what you can do with the help of Mic: 

  • Make your voice loud! Now you don’t have to go to karaoke to sing, you can do it at home. 
  • Record yourself. If you learn how to sing, this option may come in handy as you can make records and then compare them. 
  • Store all the audios you make right in the app. For sure, you can access your records through the file system of your phone but it might take time. 

However, there is a pretty disappointing thing – the delay in the sound delivery might be very big. This is irritating at times. What’s more, the voice sounds metallic, especially if you use the app for a long time. 

To install Mic, you will need approximately 4 MB of memory. 

You can download the app on Google Play at no cost.
