Spotify has launched its Lyric feature to all Free and Premium users in the Philippines, giving listeners in-app access to millions of song lyrics in the language in which they are sung.
The feature has been made possible thanks to Spotify’s partnership with Musixmatch, the world’s largest catalogue of song lyrics and translations. Users can access the new feature by tapping the “Lyrics” tab at the bottom of their “Now Playing” screen within the app.
“Lyrics has been one of the most requested features by Spotify users and we’re excited to make song lyrics available to listeners in Southeast Asia, including the Philippines. Listeners can now get to know their favorite tracks—and the lyrics behind them—even better. It’s another way Spotify is connecting fans and artists through the music they love,” says Boon Ken Wong, Asia team lead, editorial, Spotify.
Get into the groove with Spotify’s new Lyrics feature and belt out your favorite songs at home with these surefire hits featured on Sing Along K-Pop, Girl Power Karaoke, and Karaoke Duets.
