[Desktop] Bring back Lyrics


Allow me to re-edit again, in premise, that thanks to all of you this idea keeps receiving votes, and I am grateful to each of you, and when I expressed this desire as an idea I was a newbie, I owe to the professionality of Marco and Toku, whom I thank again, that I became aware that this idea it’s by no means new, nor even mine but Spotify’s, yet it is properly expressed, and it is shared by enough Community members for it to be still alive, and I agree with Arcanscape that, "We really need the lyrics feature", and I just notice an excellent temporary alternative of “SpotifyLyrics” kindly programmed and provided by Mirth (fr31): https://github.com/fr31/spotifylyrics/releases (via scoobyTdog), it works very well on my Pc 🙂 and I invite you all to try it.


Whilst singing might be fun, I have another approach to lyrics and sound, which is of course not mutually exclusive, and I read the words to see if I like them as I enjoy the melody, if I see myself in the lyrics, if I share the values expressed, and this is easier by having the words at hand.


So please Spotify bring back the Lyrics Feature most elegantly -- as you did with restyling the Community -- when you find a better Lyrics Provider.


Reading and listening might be even better than karaoke, although not as fun 😉

and every member could always do both, even just singing, as a very close person in my family does, and many other people do.


Thank you for evaluating, with my warmest and most sincere Regards.


Marco, a poet at heart

This is a really basic features and I believe it should be pretty easy to do it. And I have been wait for years. If they didn't make it in the next month. I am just gonna switch to other platform.


It's been 10 months since spotify said it reached their teams and there isn't a sign that they are working on it.
Why even bother to vote for ideas anymore?


how long will it take you to add full lyrics like apple music? 

Casual Listener

Why Spotify still doesn’t have this feature while Apple Music has it everywhere?


i can't believe we still don't have lyrics. come on spotify.

No news on when they will be launched in the US and Canada but a major step forwards lyrics in the US.


Maybe in the next 5 years.


For me this feature is now available on android app version 😮 Let's go desktop team.... xD

Have same version. Still "Behind the lyrics" for me.


@ProjectHeide, same version here, no lyrics.

Would you share a printscreen of your Spotify showing the lyrics?
