[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.

@swimmins there is a website/app that allows you to transfer playlists between platforms. But before you jump ship, I know it’s a shame that Spotify doesn’t have lyrics on Apple TV, but I’ve used Apple Music and Spotify, and Spotify has many more features and just in general is more refined. Don’t get me wrong, apple lyrics work wayyy better than Spotifys but I think it will be worth waiting for the lyrics 🤷‍♂️

How come it’s available in all devices, even on iOS, but it’s not on the device this feature makes most sense???

Would really prefer to use Spotify on my Apple TV instead of my Xbox (the Xbox Spotify app has lyric support). I end up moving to Apple Music or not listening when I realize this.

Another user requesting support for this feature. It's available in Apple Music, it's available on Amazon Prime, it's available... well everywhere except my main source of music, Spotify. 

As a workaround I know I can use spotify connect and view lyrics on my mobile while the song plays on Apple tv, but come on.. it's not ideal.

Hi!

 

What's the current status of this feature?

 

Is there any progress?

 

Any beta to test out?

Yesss I actually don't understand why Spotify hasn't added the lyrics feature to the Apple TV app. There are so many Apple TV users who use Spotify around me including myself... I'm thinking of moving to Apple Music because it has lyrics on the Apple TV app 😕 Spotify better add this feature soon...

What kind of TV do you have?

So I have an LG smart TV and it has the spotify app. That spotify app for
LG actually HAS lyrics.

I was so dumbfoundead. How is that possible?

like COME ON this is such a simple request. There has to be an explanation
or Spotify is just run by idiots.

Happy to see that this idea has been so quick to get to the Live status. Here’s hoping that this missing functionality gets added soon!
