There are two types of people in this world: 1) those who listen to music because it sounds good; and 2) those who listen to music to hear and follow along with the lyrics. If the latter camp sounds like you, then chances are you might have a sudden urge to share said music lyrics from time to time.
MusicLyricsShare is a newly released and free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer ETHN that streamlines this process in Apple’s Music app by letting users tap and hold on the individual lyric blocks that appear when a song streams via Apple Music.
Spotify now lets you find your favorite tunes by lyrics, a handy feature that Apple Music picked up two years ago via the iOS 12 software update. The service gained weekly music charts, too.
Music enriches our lives at a spiritual level, and that’s one of the reasons why it can be so enjoyable to turn on the radio when you’re at work or undertaking a menial task. But if you’ve ever listened to a song and couldn’t distinguish its lyrics before, then you’d understand easy access to song lyrics is such an imperative ingredient for the ideal mobile music player, much like your iPhone.
Many music streaming applications already come with lyric functions out of the box, but this only applies to when you’re in that particular app. Apple could and should make the user experience more useful by allowing lyric viewing from the Now Playing widget anywhere in iOS, and that’s one reason why a free jailbreak tweak called Lyrication v2 by iOS developer Marcel Braun exists.
If you enjoy listening to music on your iPad or iPhone, there may be an occasion when you like to sing along. You can tap to open and see the lyrics in real-time, but in a smaller window. With iPadOS 14, that has changed.
You can view your time-synced lyrics in full screen mode as well as the playback options for the song. These improvements make listening to your favorite songs and artists even better. Here’s how to enable the full-screen lyrics, check out your queue, and manage playback in Music on iPhone and iPad.
If you’re the type of person who likes to follow along with song lyrics while listening to music, then you might find that the iOS platform isn’t quite as supportive of your needs out of the box as it could be.
Luckily, that’s what we have the jailbreak community for, and there’s a newly released and free jailbreak tweak in town dubbed Lyricize by iOS developer level3tjg that puts song lyrics directly on the Lock Screen to make following along with your favorite music easier.
Owners of select smart TV sets from Samsung dating back to 2018 can now enjoy synchronized Apple Music lyrics that are also available across iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV.
Just a day after Apple brought the real-time Apple Music lyrics feature from iOS to macOS via the macOS Catalina 10.15.4 update, which released yesterday, Google has now added a similar lyrics feature of its own to its official YouTube Music app for iPhone and iPad.
Beta 2 of the upcoming macOS Catalina 10.15.4 update that dropped yesterday has brought the fun time-synced lyrics feature which debuted on iOS 13 to the Mac platform.
Not everyone cares about song lyrics, but if you’re the type of person who likes to follow along with whatever it might be that you’re listening to, then we have no doubt that you’ll enjoy a newly released jailbreak tweak dubbed Lyricify – originally by iOS developer ConorTheDev and more recently passed to iOS developer Renaitare.
As depicted in the screenshot examples, Lyricify was beautifully designed to display your favorite song lyrics directly on your handset’s Lock screen in an Apple-esque manner. With that in mind, the tweak looks and feels native, making it feel both familiar and easy to use.
One of the subtler improvements in the reworked Music app on iOS and iPadOS 13, tvOS 13 and macOS Catalina 10.15.4 is time-synced lyrics, a fun feature that lets you do karaoke on your iPhone, iPad and Apple TV, no additional app needed, and iDB shows you how.
