Germany/German locale/English locale
My Question or Issue
I'm unable to use the Behind the Lyrics feature (feature has been enabled in the app settings) to have lyrics displayed. I have tried songs which definitely have lyrics in the Genius database. However neither on my Android devices nor on my FireTV (using Spotify's own app for FireTV) lyrics will be displayed.
I've tried to use either the German or English locale on my devices just in case Spotify will only display lyrics on devices set to English. But the locale does not make an difference apparently.
So my simple question is: What can I do to have lyrics displayed in the Spotify app?
Solved! Go to Solution.
A friendly email support (yes, Spotify does have email support) verified that "Behind the Lyrics" is currently only support on mobile and TVs with Chromecast.
I'm still evaluating different streaming service because I unsatisfied with the enourmous ammount of bugs in the Amazon Music app (that I have used until now). Not having lyrics on my FireTV is unfortuanetely a no-go for me. So personally I have to choose another streaming service that does provide lyrics on FireTV.
Technically (Spotify Connect for example) Spotify is one of the best streaming services on the market. It is most unfortunate that a basic service like lyrics (well, for me it is basic and for most other streaming services it is as well) is supported so poorly.
