Do you use Spotify for your everyday music? If yes, then there’s good news for you. Now you can listen and sing at the same time with Spotify songs. A company finally rolls out the new lyrics features on its platform by partnered with Genius and Musixmatch.

When you play a song on Spotify, then it displays lyrics along with it, which makes you feel like you are doing karaoke.

At first, the lyric was in the testing phase in the app on a few songs. But after a week later, we can gradually find its presence in more songs and tracks. Besides, Spotify only tests the lyrics feature on the mobile apps, but now it’s also available on the website too but for limited songs. It also does support various languages, including English, which kind of cool and handy.

However, some users reported that Spotify is not loading lyrics whenever they play a track. So what’s the reason behind this problem? Can we solve it or not? We will find the answer to all these queries in this article.

Before we move, first, let’s know how you can access the lyrics on Spotify tracks. It’s a new thing for all users’ right?

How to Access Spotify Song Lyrics?

After hearing about the new Spotify lyrics feature, you might feel excited to get hands-on it, right? Who doesn’t when you get both song and its lyrics on the same platform. It’s a good thing because you don’t have to download the lyrics of songs each and every time whenever you heard a new one.

  1. Open the Spotify app on your device, whether Android or IOS.
  2. Play a song or track which you want to listen to.
  3. On the song artist interface, just scroll up to view the lyrics of that particular song.
  4. You can also expand the lyrics in order to access it on a full screen.

Why Spotify Not Loading Lyrics?

When Spotify released the lyrics feature on its platform, we heard many complaints from the users that they can’t access the lyrics completely. So, if Spotify not showing lyrics then stay calm. As I said earlier, it’s in the testing phase, so it not completely available on all songs. It is also a real-time lyric, so it will take time to cover up on all Spotify songs. 

However, Spotify gradually adding more lyrics to other tracks, too, so if you can’t find it for your favorite song, then maybe it’s in the process.

So as we can say, lyrics are only supported on limited tracks only. But we hope we will find it more in the future.
