Lyrics are one of the most requested features from listeners across the globe. So after iterating and testing, they created an experience that is simple and interactive—and even shareable. Spotify announced today it will make a new Lyrics feature available to all global users, both Free and Premium, across platforms. The feature is powered by lyrics provider Musixmatch.
The company says the feature will be available on the big screen via its app for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, Samsung, Roku, LG, Sky, and Chromecast. The new feature also offers built-in sharing from an included button on the bottom of the screen on mobile, which allows users to select the lyrics they want to share and the destination. There is no difference in the Lyrics experience for Free or Premium users.
