Spotify adds lyrics to its desktop app to let you sing along at your computer

New, 14 comments

While Spotify adds new features and improvements to its range of mobile apps on a regular basis, the streaming music service is making some useful changes to its desktop app today. The main addition is the integration of the Musixmatch service, bringing fully integrated lyrics straight into Spotify for desktop. A new lyrics button will bring up on-screen lyrics, and you can also search or browse for lyrics using the explore feature in Spotify.

Musixmatch has been one of the most popular apps for Spotify desktop, and Spotify’s Dave Price describes lyrics integration as a "sought-after feature." Other improvements include a tweaked friend feed to view what playlists, songs, and artists friends are listening to, and daily viral charts to find the most shared tracks. The latest Spotify desktop app will start rolling out over the coming weeks to all users.
