(Pocket-lint) Spotify users with the Nest Hub finally got a long-wanted feature: real-time lyrics.

The Hub and other Google Assistant smart displays can now display the lyrics of Spotify-supported songs while they are playing.

This feature was already rolled out on Android, iOS, smart TVs, and game consoles late last year, but it’s been strangely absent from Google Assistant devices until now.

Users simply need to touch a new lyrics sound in the lower right corner of the screen when playing a song. The lyrics will scroll as the music plays so you can sing along to your heart’s content.


For other applications Spotify, live lyrics are provided by MusixMatch: “Songs are one of the most requested features by listeners around the world,” the streaming service said when it launched the feature last year.

“So, after iteration and testing, we’ve created a simple, interactive — and even shareable — experience. By partnering with Musixmatch, we’re bringing the lyrics to life with in-app access across the majority of our massive title library.”

Spotify Premium or Free account holders can use this feature on the millions of tracks available to them.
