We’ve recognized that YouTube has been engaged on this function for a while. We first heard about it in April, and we’ve been questioning when the corporate was going to launch it. Nonetheless, 9To5Google has noticed this function within the wild, and that reveals that YouTube is within the strategy of releasing it to the general public.
YouTube Music is rolling out reside lyrics
Stay lyrics are a pleasant means so that you can know the place you’re within the tune whenever you’re viewing the lyrics. You by no means know whenever you’ll lose your house.
This new function brings a brand new look to the lyrics UI. As a substitute of seeing a strong background coloration, you’ll see via the panel to the album artwork, solely it will likely be closely blurred. The phrases will float over the background.
The textual content will gentle up because the tune progresses, letting you understand the place you’re within the tune. The remainder of the textual content will stay grayed out. Whereas the lyrics are timed to the music, you’ll nonetheless have the ability to scroll additional within the lyrics to see what phrases are arising. Nonetheless, when the tune reaches the subsequent line, it can scroll again to the present line.
One little element is that you just’ll see a bit of musical observe in between a number of the traces. This means sections when there’s simply music with no lyrics. A neat function is that, should you faucet on a line within the lyrics, the app will navigate to that time within the tune.
It’s nonetheless a piece in progress
We had been in a position to see this function, nevertheless it’s not there 100%. There are nonetheless songs on the platform that don’t have lyrics accessible, so that can stay an issue.
One factor we seen was that the reside lyrics aren’t accessible for all songs. You’re more likely to nonetheless see songs with the older type of lyrics. We’ve seen a case the place one tune can have the reside lyrics, however one other tune (a tune that’s in the identical album, thoughts you) would have the older lyrics.
As time goes on, it’s going to make it to extra songs.
