Spotify on Monday unveiled a useful new feature on iOS and Android that allows users to search for songs through lyrics, a feature Apple Music users have enjoyed for years,media 9to5mac reported.
If you’re playing a song, a music recognition app like Shazam is great when the user isn’t sure about a song/singer’s name. However, if users just want to sing a few lyrics to their phones, they don’t work so well.
In these cases, users typically search the web for lyrics before playing or adding tracks using the music service. Spotify has now simplified the problem, as services on iOS and Android have added the easy option to enter lyrics to search for songs.
The update shows Spotify following in the footsteps of Apple Music, which acquired the ability to search through lyrics as early as 2018 on iOS 12.
Spotify designer Lina shared the news on Twitter on Monday.
