What you need to know

  • Spotify brings its “real-time” lyrics feature to the Google Nest Hub.
  • The lyrics will appear highlighted as the song progresses with those to come looking more transparent.
  • This is an effort to bring listeners into their song more as Spotify has partnered with Musixmatch.

Spotify, since late 2021, has been busy bringing its “real-time lyrics” to its cast of supported platforms. The Google Nest Hub (opens in new tab) is finally getting its chance to provide real-time lyrics to those looking to sing along.

9to5Google (opens in new tab) reported this new feature while Spotify is fullscreen on your Nest Hub. The “lyrics” button will be at the bottom right-hand side of the player’s UI next to the favorite button. Tapping this will change the background from the song’s album cover to its lyrics. As the lyrics are spoken, they will be in the center of the screen, highlighted. The words to come will be transparent and when there are no lyrics Spotify will provide a music note to indicate that.
