[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.

Apple tries to force us using Apple Music, but I won't! 
Drawback of secured OS...😪

My Question or Issue

Can you please implement lyrics in the Apple TV app? I'm using that feature a lot and now not having it on a 200 Euro device is just unacceptable. Also can you implement the advanced futuristic feature to fast forwards a song? No idea how that is not a thing.

13 months and counting since lyrics were released. “Incompetent” doesn’t even begin to describe the state of Spotify’s tvOS development.

very odd decision to exclude apple tv users from having lyrics…

Please Spotify, I enjoy your service and have had family Premium plan for years.  Please turn on the lyrics in the Apple TV implementation of your application.  Please resolve whatever pissing match you are having with Apple and turn this on.  I don't want to switch to Apple music just for this one feature.
