[Other] Lyrics support for Apple TV app

Status: Live Idea

Lyrics have been a great addition to Spotify apps across several of my devices, but on the latest Spotify app for my Apple TV 4K, the feature doesn’t seem to be available. Roku and Xbox already appear to have support, so it would be great to have this feature on Apple’s streaming platform as well.

How does just about every TV platform support lyrics but it hasn't been added to Apple TV app yet?

 

I really hope this is in the works and not a conscious decision by Spotify to give a dig to Apple TV. I'm sick of Apple using customers getting the short end of the stick in this back and forth between you both.

I really need this! I'm not switching from apple music back to Spotify before Spotify adds this functionality to the Apple TV Spotify app.

Amazon Music already has this lyrics feature for a long time for the Apple TV app. Also, I hope Spotify changes the way lyrics show up on iOS devices. If I want lyrics show then I want it shown on EVERY song that comes up until I disable that feature.

Why do you need a certain amount of votes to get going on this? At this point in time it's basic functionality and you're lagging behind.
