[Desktop][Other] Changing size of lyrics

Status: Case Closed

Hi

Ive been having this problem since a few days, since the new web player UI was used in the updated desktop app.

The font of the lyrics is too big, and to get proper lyrics i need to zoom out (ctrl+-), but the whole spotify ui shrinks and the playlists, songs and friend activity is barely readable.

I would like to suggest a slider for the size of the font of lyrics, or a [+] or [-] sign to change the size.

this is an example of the overly large lyrics.

and this is when i've zoomed out, for the lyrics to be proper.

Please look into this matter and make the necessary changes.

Thank you 🙂

Agree--there are lots of great things with the update, but the song lyrics were better before. I think the slider idea is great. Or just any other way for each person to select how big a font we want. With songs that have a lot of words per phrase it's super difficult to see the complete lyrics and when the song is fast is nearly impossible. Hope something can be done about this font size.

I hope this idea would be implemented 'cause i have a problem with the lyrics and Spotify Support couldn't fix my bug. I cannot see the whole verse because it's too big and it's also cropped. I cannot do karaoke any more :'(Captura de pantalla 2021-05-20 202804.pngCaptura de pantalla 2021-06-13 204723.png

Need a setting for lyric on PC app, just adjust size of the lyric. It's too big size now, i need the smaller. Thanks.

Having the lyrics back in Spotify is great! But there is room for improvement in the accessibility department, and I hope other agree with this suggestion as well.

 

Sometimes the current lyrics lines are quite long, and can take up 3 rows (example in screenshot). This makes it quite hard to read for someone like me who has dyslexia.  A way to solve this would be to adjust the lyrics size.

 

Now everyone has their own preference in size. When I use lyrics I'm behind my desk, right in front of my monitor, and I don't need 2cm high text. But someone else might use the lyrics while cooking and their screen might be a few meters away, so they want the giant text size. Therefore my idea is as follows:

 

Include a slider or + - buttons in the lyrics screen to change the size of the text, on the fly, to your own preference. (example in screenshot)

I'm not able to vote on this idea because it's closed (I think that's why), but I definitely support the idea of a size slider for lyrics on desktop!!
