Play a song starting at a given lyrics line

Solved!

Play a song starting at a given lyrics line

The last Spotify update introduced lyrics that synchronized with the rhythm. I mean that Spotify holds the data when each line in a song's lyrics is performed in the song.

I'm looking for a method that sets the player to point a specific time according to a given lyrics line.

Hey there, help's here!

Right now, this isn't possible with the API. Spotify uses Musixmatch to get lyrics. You might be able to combine the Spotify Web API and Musixmatch Lyrics API (https://developer.musixmatch.com/documentation/music-meta-data) to develop this. Let me know if you have any questions!

Have a good one,

Hi

are there any plans to add an endpoint for track lyrics? that would be nice!

If that's not happening in foreseeable time, maybe the endpoint you are using can be included in the external_urls property of a track
