Many music streaming services are now available, but Spotify remains the most popular for millions of people. Although the app has had a long and profitable career, it hasn’t wowed in every category. While other streaming services like Apple Music and Amazon Music have long offered real-time lyric displays, Spotify has not. Fortunately, things have changed.

On Nov. 18, Spotify officially made its real-time lyrics function available to all of its customers, both free and paid, for the first time. As an alternative, you may have seen the news and launched Spotify only to find a slew of nothing playing. A few strategies may be used to get the functionality to display more quickly.

Spotify’s real-time lyrics may be accessed by following these steps

Check to see whether Spotify has been updated. We don’t know if this function is related to the current Spotify version, but we’ve seen it emerge after updating the app. Make sure you’re using the most up-to-date version of Spotify on whichever device you typically use it on.

Have you yet to show up? It happened to me on my phone. Real-time lyrics were still unavailable even after an App Store update. My recommendation is to log into Spotify from a different device. It is possible to use this function on any Spotify-enabled smartphone, tablet, or computer. Only after logging onto Spotify on my Pixel 4 did I discover the function. The same thing happened when I returned to my iPhone.

Spotify’s real-time lyrics may be used on mobile, desktop, and TV

Using it on a mobile device is a breeze. When you touch on a song with real-time lyrics, a “Lyrics” window will appear at the bottom of the screen. if you scroll down or tap on the lyrics window, it will expand to provide you a preview of the song’s lyrics from Musixmatch (current lyrics are highlighted in white). To access all the lyrics, you must touch on this window again, which makes it full screen.

When using a desktop computer, the function is easier to miss. You’ll notice a little microphone symbol next to the Queue icon when you select a song that has real-time lyrics available. Clicking the microphone will bring up a huge lyrics window. In contrast to the smartphone version, it appears that the complete song’s lyrics aren’t immediately visible. Only the last two or three lines of the song will be shown.

The lyrics button may be found in the upper right corner of the Now Playing screen on Spotify TV. This functionality is also expected to arrive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Android TV and more devices in the future, so you can now follow along with the lyrics while listening to Spotify on any of these devices, as well as many others.
