While Spotify and Apple Music have long offered the convenience of real-time lyrics, YouTube Music has lagged behind with its clunky, static option. But now, the music streaming giant is catching up with a new update that finally brings dynamic lyrics to the app. Say goodbye to the hassle of scrolling through lyrics and let YouTube Music do the work for you.
Real-Time Lyrics Feature Rolling Out to YouTube Music
With the latest update to YouTube Music, users can now access real-time lyrics for any song available on the app. The feature highlights the current lyrics, increasing their text size for better visibility within the lyrics tab, and automatically scrolls the lyrics as the song plays.
Similar to Spotify and Apple Music, YouTube Music’s real-time lyrics feature is now available for Android and iOS users. Google’s partnership with MusixMatch last year paved the way for the company to test this feature on Google TV/Android TV before launching it on mobile devices. Reports suggest that the feature is also powered by LyricFind.
While the real-time lyrics feature on YouTube Music is now available, it may not be accessible to all users. Some Reddit users who have version 5.51.50 of the YouTube Music app have received the update, but one Redditor pointed out that the feature is not tied to the app version.
Updating to the latest version of the app does not necessarily bring the new feature. Therefore, users may need to keep checking for the update to see if it is available for their device. However, a wider rollout of the feature is expected in the coming weeks, so users who do not have the feature yet should keep an eye out for future updates.
Additionally, YouTube has introduced several new features for its Premium subscribers. These features include an enhanced 1080p viewing mode, video queues in the mobile app, and device continuity. These features enhance the content-watching experience significantly, providing users with an even more seamless and enjoyable viewing experience.
