Step 1


[Your Library] Keep lyrics up at all times

I like having the lyrics accessible, and having to swipe up and click lyrics is a pain. Instead of the album cover, it would be awesome to have the option to have the lyrics there instead!

This isn't something that spotify staff even need to "look into". Lyrics already stay visible on desktop. Just do the same thing on the app! 👍


Well, I would really like to know if Spotify will do this feature a reality! Its a bad experience, all time needs to click on the feature. 




This would be a massive quality of life boost for me. It’s literally my biggest frustration with Spotify on mobile. I can do this on my laptop and smart tv, why not my phone? I listen to music in the shower and having my phone in a waterproof case with the lyrics up the whole time would be awesome. 


It is difficult for me to understand lyrics sometimes when listening to songs. I have the lyrics tab open the majority of the time. If the lyrics are available would it be possible to keep the lyrics tab open when the next song comes on? As of now when the song changes the lyrics tab disappears and must be manually reopened. I propose the tab stays open and if the lyrics aren't available it will show the "about the artist tab."


For me, this is an important accessibility issue. I struggle to follow along with lyrics by audio alone due to multiple factors I won't go into here.


I have been trying to experience music more, and get more invested in the music, but this is presenting a real problem for me.


Many of my best friends love music but I struggle to connect with them on that front because I've struggled to follow along.


Surely Spotify wants everybody to grow their connection and live out music despite any accessibility issues they may face. This seems like a really low bar to drive more engagement, improve customers' experience, and show the disability community that Spotify cares about them.
