Spotify now lets you search songs by lyrics

October 06th, 2020

Remember the times when you’re constantly singing a line of a song but just can’t remember the title of that song? Spotify can now help you with that. You can now search for songs using their lyrics on iOS and Android. 

Spotify designer Lin Wang tweeted earlier today that users can now input lyrics into the app’s search bar to get song results, something Apple Music has offered since 2018.

As you can see from the tweet, songs that include the lyrics you input will have a “lyrics match” label. They show up along with other similar results, so keep an eye out for that label if you’re specifically searching with lyrics.

Spotify will also be launching a new set of top music charts today, with a twist.

A new @spotifycharts Twitter account includes a look at the top albums of the week; it is tracked from Friday to Thursday. There’s a US-centric top albums chart as well as a global view, and they are released every Monday.

In addition to the weekly album round-up, the Spotify Charts account will also be sharing the top 50 songs of the week streamed in the US and globally, as well.
