Spotify makes it easy to sing along to a song by displaying the song lyrics on the app. We’ll show you how to reveal these lyrics in Spotify on the web, desktop, and mobile phones.

Song lyrics are available in multiple languages on this streaming service. However, not all songs have their lyrics available.

Additionally, keep in mind that Spotify rolls out features slowly. It’s possible the song lyrics feature hasn’t reached your account yet.

Update, 11/18/21: Spotify has made the lyrics feature available for everyone globally. Make sure to update the Spotify app on your smartphone or computer and start singing along!
