Spotify launches real-time lyrics for all Free and Premium users globally

Spotify is rolling out interactive lyrics for all of its Free and Premium users worldwide. The music streaming service has partnered with lyrics provider Musixmatch on the shareable feature, and says that it is “bringing song lyrics to life through in-app access across the majority of our extensive library of tracks”.

Spotify says that lyrics are one of its listeners’ most requested features globally. To access the real-time lyrics on mobile, you’ll need to tap on the ‘Now Playing View’ on a song and then, while listening, swipe up from the bottom of the screen. On the Spotify desktop app, you’ll need to click on the microphone icon in the ‘Now Playing’ bar while a song is playing and, the track lyrics should start scrolling in real time while the song plays. If you want your lyrics to stream in the apps, then you want to go to Musixmatch and sign up as an artist and load up the lyrics for everything you have distributed.
