Music is an essential part of our lives and there’s nothing better than singing along to your favorite songs. But, what if you don’t know the lyrics to a song you love and want to sing along? This can be a frustrating situation, especially if you’re not sure what the words mean and don’t have any way to find them.
Spotify, the popular music streaming platform, has come up with a solution to this problem by introducing a new feature that allows users to search songs by song lyrics. This new feature is a collaboration between Spotify and Musixmatch, and it’s available to all users, both free and premium, globally.
In this blog post, we’ll take you through the process of how to search for lyrics on Spotify and find your song.
Spotify’s Lyrics Feature
Spotify’s lyrics feature allows users to view the lyrics of a song as it plays. This is a useful feature for many listeners, as it allows them to see what a song is about and learn more about it before they decide to download it to their phone or tablet.
The lyrics feature is available on desktop, mobile, and TV apps, as well as gaming consoles. You can also see the lyrics of a song in real-time while you play it on your computer or TV and share the lyrics to Instagram Stories and Facebook.
How to Search Lyrics on Spotify
Before you can search by song lyrics, you need to log in to Spotify. You can do this by either signing up using your Facebook account or using an email address and password. Once you’ve logged in, you’ll find a number of features on the home page of the app, including a list of featured playlists, recently played music and different popular genres. You can also review your playlists and create and edit them.
To search songs on Spotify by song lyrics, just tap the “Lyrics” option (a microphone icon) when you’re playing a song that has them enabled. The lyrics will then appear on the screen below the song’s cover and music player as it plays. You can also view them in full-screen mode by tapping the More button in the top-left corner of the lyrics box.
Getting the Lyrics of a Song
The lyrics feature on Spotify is not available for every song, but it’s a great way to browse the lyrics of your favorite artists and bands. To get the lyrics of a song, you need to type at least 3 words from the song’s lyrics in the search bar. You’ll then see songs that have those lyrics in the search results with a ‘Lyrics match’ tag below them.
Finding a Song by Its Genre, Label, or Year
In addition to searching by lyrics, you can also find a song by its genre, label, or year. This is helpful if you’re looking for something specific that you may not have heard before. You can even narrow your search to exact matches if you want to.
Spotify’s new lyrics feature is a fantastic addition to the platform that allows users to view the lyrics of a song as it plays and search for songs by lyrics. It’s a great way to discover new music and learn more about the songs you love. The feature is available to all users, both free and premium, and works on desktop, mobile, and TV apps, as well as gaming consoles.
