IOS 13 Tip 6: Dynamic Lyrics in Music

For some time now, the Music app on your Apple devices has provided access to the lyrics of many songs to which you might be listening. However, you could only see these lyrics displayed on the screen. What if you wanted to sing along? Well, now you can, thanks to Dynamic Lyrics. This new feature allows the lyrics to display in sync with the song, as it is playing. So, sighted users can follow along, seeing the lyrics where they are sung, as they are sung. It’s never been easier to follow along and belt out your favorite jams, and it will take family karaoke night to a whole new level.

Voiceover users, you will still have to read the lyrics yourself, as you probably would not want to hear the spoken lyrics interrupting the songs you love. Still though, this is a great new feature, and we here at TTJ really love it. We think you will too. It works on your iPhone, iPad, AppleTV, and Mac, once Mac OS Catalina is released.

If you are subscribed to Apple Music, just start playing a song, tap on the song at the bottom of the screen to open the Now Playing screen, then tap “Lyrics” at the bottom of the screen. On AppleTV, lyrics automatically appear. For more information, check out this Apple Support Article.
