Exploring Features on Spotify

Back in the day, you had to open the cover and sleeve of an LP to read lyrics or find them in a CD’s jewel case — if the band chose to display their lyrics at all. Now, you can view lyrics on Spotify with a couple of clicks on your PC or taps on your phone.

However, it is important to note that if you don’t see an option for lyrics, that song’s lyrics aren’t available. It’s rare that this happens, but it could crop up on obscure tracks. Also, sometimes it takes several seconds for the song and lyrics to sync up. But overall, it’s a great feature.
