- Spotify is testing a new live lyrics feature with some users in the United States.
According to Engadget, Spotify is A/B testing a feature that will display time-synced lyrics as a song plays, allowing users to sing along. But the new feature is only available a portion of people thanks to the A/B testing situation.
Apple Music already offers a similar feature that has proven popular and Spotify itself has tested live lyrics in other regions, including Brazil, Mexico, and Hong Kong. There's currently no timescale for when the feature will be made available to the public at large, however.
