My Question or Issue

Until yesterday the lyrics of my desktop Spotify were working. Now all the time i click the little microphone symbol it says that musixmatch doesn't have the lyric of the song. This is happening with every song.

Hey there folks,


Thanks for your updates and for your patience while we looked into this issue. We can now confirm that this should be fixed for everyone!


Make sure your app is updated to the latest version. If you're still having trouble, let us know in the relevant help board here and we'll have another look.


Note: Keep in mind that right now lyrics are only available in a few select countries and regions. If you'd like to see this feature come to more countries, you can consider adding your vote to this idea.


Same thing is happening here (also from Brazil). Since the last update (which I got today), the app keeps saying it doesnt have the lyrics.

What is weird is that on my phone it shows lyrics just fine. If I run spotify on my browser, there are lyrics there as well. The problem is just on the windows app.

I already tried a clean reinstall. Tried logging in again a couple times.... No luck with these.

I from Colombia and i have the same problem.

Same in Taiwan but it works properly with my Android phone.

Hi there @TINTJA

thanks for reaching out !


Can you please confirm that you've followed the steps for a clean reinstall and downloaded the app from the Microsoft Store?


If Lyrics still don't show up, please mention your exact Spotify version running on your device.


Thanks for your cooperation 🙂
