Spotify today announced that Lyrics, one of the most requested features from listeners across the globe, is now available to all users worldwide.
As of today, Lyrics are available to all Free and Premium users globally across iOS and Android devices, desktop, gaming consoles, and TV. “By partnering with Musixmatch, we’re bringing song lyrics to life through in-app access across the majority of our extensive library of tracks.” the company said in a blog post.
Last year, Spotify had launched its real-time lyrics feature in 26 markets across Latin America, Southern Asia and India.
Now, depending on the platform, Lyrics feature will be available from the “Now Playing” view or bar.
