Spotify tests the streaming of live lyrics for U.S. users
In a statement emailed to Engadget, Spotify said, “We can confirm we’re currently testing our lyrics feature to a select number of users in the US. At Spotify, we routinely conduct a number of tests in an effort to improve our user experience. Some of those tests end up paving the way for our broader user experience and others serve only as an important learning. We don’t have any further news to share at this time.”
The lyrics feature found in 27 countries and being tested in the U.S. are provided once again by Musixmatch. Offering live lyrics could help Spotify maintain its lead as the world’s largest music streamer with 248 million monthly listeners as of September. Of that total, 113 million listeners have paid for the premium version of the streamer with the balance using the ad-supported free version.
The premium version of Spotify allows users to download music for replay later (even when offline), listen to music with no ads, enjoy any song, and skip over an unlimited number of songs. The cost is $9.99 per month for an individual subscription following a two month free trial. A student account is $4.99 per month after a one month free trial, and a family subscription including up to six members, is $14.99 after a one month free trial.
