As Vtubers like Kizuna AI, Kaguya Luna, YuNi and others continue to bask in the spotlight, the Vtuber revolution has come to the masses through smartphone-based apps allowing users to slip into a virtual persona and stream content. Platforms such as VChara, GooMe, PapeMoji, Custom Cast, REALITY and Hololive are only a few which come to mind.

Now, in a world's first for a mobile system, Mirrativ, a popular platform combining Vtubing and the ability to livestream your smartphone screen, has launched a new service called Emokara which lets you use your virtual avatar to sing karaoke to your live audience.

Mirrativ's native avatar generation and broadcasting system Emomo can be used singly or in combination with livestreaming of games or other apps.

Emokara: Let your avatar sing

With Emokara, you now have access to the JOYSOUND karaoke song library and real karaoke features like lyrics display, so you can use your Emomo avatar to sing karaoke to a live audience.


During your broadcast, simply press the karaoke button and advance to the song selection menu. You can review the most popular songs, search for songs by genre, or input the title directly.

On the right, you can see that the five most popular songs when the screen cap was taken were "Lemon" (Kenshi Yonezu), "Senbonzakura" (Wagakki Band), "Yokoso Japari Park E" (Welcome to Japari Park) by Doubutsu Biscuits x PPP, "Zankoku na tenshi no teze" (A Cruel Angel's Thesis) by Yoko Takashi, and "Rokuchounen to Ichiya Monogatari" (The Story of Six Billion Years and One Night) by kemu.

When Emokara begins, the screen goes black. Your Emomo avatar shows up holding a mic and then, when the song begins to play, stepping in tune to the rhythm as lyrics show up on the screen just like a real karaoke system.

As with other Mirrativ livestreams, your audience can interact by writing messages or sending gifts, stamps and animations such as confetti showers.

This video will give you an idea of what it looks like in practice:
