I am using the Metropolis theme for Beamer but the following codes give me no heading like in Singapore theme. How do I add a heading so that the audience can see the outline of the presentation in Metropolis?

If you want to use the Singapore theme headline, check the file beamerthemeSingapore.sty and see which outer theme it loads, because this is where the headline gets defined. There we find:

\useoutertheme[subsection=false]{miniframes}

Now let's check beamerouterthememiniframes for the definition of the headline template, which is called:

\defbeamertemplate*{headline}{miniframes theme}

So the solution is to set the headline template accordingly after loading metropolis and this can be done through:

\documentclass[10pt]{beamer}
\useoutertheme[subsection=false]{miniframes}
\usetheme{metropolis}
\setbeamertemplate{headline}[miniframes theme]
