[All Platforms][Other] Lyrics for local files

We know Spotify is implementing Lyrics into the application - this is being tested, as seen on Twitter every day.

This is one of the best moves you can do now, but ...
let these lyrics also appear for local files. Many songs that are not on Spotify have their own lyrics in Musixmatch, so please let them also get this feature (or any other feature so that everyone can add themselves) to their local files.

 

An example of such a song might be "I spoke to the d***l in miami, he said everything would be fine" by XXXTENTACION. The song is not on Spotify, but has its own lyrics on the site.

Precisely because lyrics are being implemented and tested, I want to ask for this option now.

Logistically this might be hard for Spotify to implement. I love the initiative but for now they need to focus their efforts on improving the sync of songs currently on Spotify, and releasing lyrics globally.

 

If you have lyrics you know that the time sync of each song is inconsistent. With some songs synced correctly on Musixmatch, yet for some reason the sync is different on the Spotify App. We need consistency of the lyrics and sync, spotify needs to update the vast majority of songs currently supported by Lyrics.
