Spotify rolls out real-time lyrics
Spotify has rolled out real-time lyrics in select markets, including the Philippines, allowing users to easily sing along to the music they’re listening to.
Spotify confirmed the new feature with TechCrunch and launched it to 26 markets: Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Mexico, Peru, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, El Salvador, Uruguay, Vietnam, Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan, Singapore, and Hong Kong.
When playing a song, just slide your finger up from the bottom to reveal the lyrics. It will occupy just half of the screen but you can tap on it to go full screen.
Before real-time lyrics, Spotify has a Behind the Lyrics feature in partnership with Genius but only offers partial lyrics together with some backstory and commentary.
