There’s been a lot of reports about the lyrics feature in YouTube Music expanding over the last 24 hours. As there are a not-insignificant number of users without it yet, it seems that it’s a staged rollout that’s not quite complete. ie. The feature is present in the app but not all users can see the lyrics.
To access the lyrics to your favourite songs, click the info button next to the song name and select lyrics. It’s as simple as that. Personally I have found that there are some artists that are well covered, others not at all. So if you’re not seeing lyrics in YouTube Music yet, check out a few artists just to make sure.
This is just another step in creating a significant feature gap – can we please start with parity Google? – between Google Play Music and YouTube Music. While there is no cemented date when GPM will cease operation, clearly it’s coming.
What do you need from YouTube Music before you’re prepared to discard GPM moving forward?
