Why doesn't Spotify have lyrics?

Why doesn't Spotify have lyrics?

Is it difficult to find properly time-synced lyrics for the ton of songs that exist, (especially the obscure ones) or is it because of licensing issues?

Hi there @LokeshC2,

thanks for reaching out to the community !


You can find more info on the Spotify-Genius "View Lyrics" integration on this info page.


Furthermore, i would strongly recommend adding your +VOTE to this live idea which supports the add of lyrics across platforms (subscribing to it for updates will also be a good idea).


Your feedback means the world.

Let me know if you have further questions 🙂

Yeah, it's for select songs and select playlists. Why not for all songs? Is it because of unavailability of lyrics or licences? I have an idea is the issue is unavailability of lyrics, but it's useless if the issue is licensing. So, I wanted to clear that up before posting the idea.
