Have you ever wanted to listen to a song you remember hearing once or twice, but did not know the name? Spotify can help now, as long as you remember some of the words. You can now search for songs with lyrics, from your desktop, web or app.
The news comes through a tweet from one of Spotify̵7;s engineers.
My team just sent something on iOS and Android –
now you can find songs with lyrics 😉 on Spotify

We have tested and it already works if you are on the desktop, browser or app with the latest updates. Instead of searching for a song or artist, you can type in a few words from the lyrics you remember. As long as you are pretty accurate, it works pretty well.
For anyone who has ever forgotten the name of the song (and isn’t it all?), The feature should be very helpful. Apple Music listeners already have a similar feature, but other streaming services do not (yet).
