It's enjoyable experience to view lyrics when playing songs on computer or mobile devices. However, if you are using Spotify desktop client, you'll be disappointed to find out that the lyric section was removed from the app. On Spotify official site, it's stated that they are testing the lyrics feature now but didn't tell us when it would be available again. If you use Spotify much and want to get lyrics for Spotify music as they are sung like before, you should read on the following article to find the solution to this issue.

Tool You'll Need to Play Spotify Music with Lyrics

To enjoy your Spotify tracks with lyrics, you need assistance from an extra app that is called Musixmatch, a former partner with Spotify that previously supplied the lyric system for Spotify. Although Spotify didn't explain why they removed lyrics from the songs, it's speculated that's because of Spotify and Musixmatch's partnership has ended.

Fortunately, we can get the Musixmatch from Windows Store for free. The following instructions will show you the complete steps to view lyrics on Spotify by installing Musixmatch on your PC or Mac.

To see lyrics of Spotify songs in offline mode via Musixmatch, simply open the tracks at least once when connected to the internet. In this way, it will download and save the lyrics of the song so that you can see the lyrics anytime even when offline.
