Spotify has been working on its lyrics feature for a while now. They have been testing it in select markets since last year. The feature is now live in its app.

Before the introduction of the in-app lyrics feature, users had to get another app to show real-time lyrics such as Musixmatch which has become popular for music binge-listeners like me who are trying to sharpen their karaoke skills while self-quarantining during this pandemic that has had most people stay at home and find new ways to entertain themselves.

Spotify’s partnerships with lyric providers was a mess. They worked with Musixmatch, cut ties with them to work with Genius for the “Behind the Lyrics” feature and now they’re back with Musixmatch to provide real-time lyrics inside the app.

Spotify was also testing a new UI for its lyrics feature.
