Amazing idea!

 

People would love to sing karaoke in front of their Apple TV, actually better suiting feature there than on smartphones.

When it comes about lyrics Spotify’s competitors do an amazing job . For instance Deezer shows lyrics at the time a track is played. They are well synchronized and they look great. Sadly Spotify lacks of this great feature on TV as if they don’t care about their loyal users.

If there is a option to choose different way to show the lyrics would be great. And please make one dynamic animated lyrics, just like those lyrics speakers, that would be perfect for the party.

Deezer is way superior when it comes to lyrics. Spotify needs to catch up.

The great idea. It's important to add lyrics to TV app.

The lyrics have been included in desktop and mobile app, and TV app recently updated which have new now playing UI, but it's not have lyrics, which looks strange. I think that add lyrics to the now playing UI will have the best vision.

I've been looking for a feature like this a long time ago.

At this time, smart TVs are very popular and we all know we spend most of the time at home right now. It would be super useful to have lyrics on Android TV while playing Spotify.

Apple has given priority to their Fitness+ app, which was something not even planned for now but it's important to find the needs. I think Spotify should do something similar, reorganise their plans and start thinking how can they fulfill needs and offer something highly required by the users. I know there is a powerful team behind so go for it 👍

Excellent idea! In my opinion, the design of the music player on Smart TV doesn't take advantage of the space of the screens, and including the lyrics would complement that space that is not filled.
