[iOS][Other] Show Lyrics without listening to song

I feel like there should be an option under the triple dot button of a song to see the lyrics for it without having to tap on the song.

Hello and thanks for submitting your idea to the Idea Exchange!


We've gone ahead and marked this as a new suggestion. Spotify Staff will look into this idea once it reaches the necessary amount of votes.


More info on how your feedback reaches Spotify via the Idea Exchange can be found here.




Also a great idea, would be nice to check lyrics when searching for a song to see if its the one you’re looking for.


It would be very nice to be able to follow the lyrics while the song is playing. Almost as a sing alone feature 


Spotify actually pulls its lyrics from Musixmatch, so if you go there you can go look at them independently


I think this is a great idea. I find myself googling "_____ lyrics". If this was implemented, it would keep us from closing the app, opening up a web browser, finding the song of choice, then opening Spotify back up. It's nice to have everything in one place.


This would be beyond dope! I craft whole playlist based off a common word or theme and often use Google to find songs that contain certain words -- DJ's and Producers would flip out over this option

very nice for home made karaoke!

Other think that I really wish is that we could be able again to send private messages in Spotfy again! I have a lot of friends that are leaving instagram and facebook, and whenever I want to share a good song with them, I can't anymore...My question is why? Did Mark Zuckerberg paid for Spotfy to chut that option down? What a shame Spotfy, you had everything to became the most powerful social network, but you preferred to sell yourself.


I had been thinking about this, recently. I sometimes find songs through the rabbit hole or however, that I'm searching, for the potential of adding to particular playlists. Lyrics are a big deal (if the playlists are not instrumental), so I check to see if the lyrics are fitting. I sometimes listen to one song, while I look up the lyrics for the next one up. If I could just go the options for that song, to see them, that would save the time in listening to find out, especially toward the end, that it's not fitting.




Sometimes I dont want to listen to a song but just read the lyrics for example. Maybe there can be a tab if you click on the 3 dots where you can find the lyrics of the song.
