What you need to know
- Spotify will roll out real-time lyrics support this Tuesday on its mobile apps.
- The lyrics support will be powered by the well-known lyrics provider, Musixmatch.
- The company had been testing the features in four markets over the past year, but will now expand it to 24 new ones, bringing it to a total of 26 supported countries.
Spotify is set to upgrade its mobile apps with a long-requested user-feature, real-time lyrics support. Unlike the version of the feature in Google's YouTube Music app, real-time lyrics are more fun and immersive. They will scroll across the screen in time to the music, allowing a user to keep track of what is being played and even sing-along if they'd like.
Via TechCrunch who broke the story, saying:
Lyrics support is a great value add for streaming music services. With Spotify being one of the leading music services, the addition of something like this is likely to keep even more users from jumping ship to similar services like Apple and YouTube Music.
TechCrunch says users can expect lyrics support to go live at 10 a.m. Eastern on Tuesday, June 30.
Apple Music really, really nails lyrics. And it has lyrics for most songs as well. I guess Spotify is about to catch up some.
They really do. I only tried it because Verizon included it for free. I'm glad they did. It's a step up from Google Music.
Yes. Apple Music really is a step up from GP Music or Youtube Music. I am still using Apple Music now, in large part to how well the lyrics work.
