Hey folks, sorry about the delay here!

It looks like right now, this is expected behaviour. Although you can disable Behind The Lyrics on your phone, it will still currently show on your Chromecast.

 

Rest assured we've passed your feedback about this directly on.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this, and let us know if there's anything else!

Thanks for your effort, Melody.

 

It would be great if Spotify added an option to sync the Behind the Lyrics setting so that Genius texts won't appear when streaming with Google Cast.

Okey, from january I still can’t disable this really annoying function. I pay the fee regularly I’m a premium user why I have two wait for the solution two month or more? Don’t do this Spotify I love your streaming service, but I’m really thinking to change to Apple Music because this genius thing.

My solution to this was actually to unplug my chromecast and just use my PS4 for all my media needs instead (works great actually because wifi is spotty around my TV and I can run internet for the PS4 via ethernet).

 

If spotify introduces genius lyrics to the PS4 app I'm gonna scream.

I turned behind the lyrics on account setting, but it still shows up on the screen. Is Spotify too lazy to fix this easy problem? It’s rediculous, can you fix it now? What am I paying fees every month for? Hurry up

Mos embarrassing thing

You'll have to play "less popular" music if you have an event. Be careful when you throw parties and kids are there and the "behind the lyrics" says pretty dirty things and some nasty language.... Really bad move Spotify

None. I am pretty disappointed that this issue still remains.
