Spotify on Thursday announced that it is expanding the availability of the live lyrics feature to more regions. The music-streaming service has partnered with Musixmatch for it, and the feature will be available for all Free and Premium across various platforms. The live lyrics feature was first introduced in June 2020 for users in Asia (including India), the Caribbean, and South America. The new feature synchronises the lyrics with the song being played. Spotify also mentioned that the live lyrics feature was one of the most requested features by its users.

A blog post by Spotify announced the update that brings the live lyrics feature to users across the globe. The music-streaming service has expanded on its existing partnership with Musixmatch to bring “song lyrics to life through in-app access across the majority of our extensive library of tracks.” The new live lyrics will be available to all users. They can experience the new feature on the Android and iOS apps, Spotify desktop client, TV, as well as gaming consoles — PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Lyrics on the Spotify mobile app can be viewed by swiping up in the ‘Now Playing View' of a song. The lyrics are synchronised to the song and keep scrolling automatically as the song progresses. Spotify has also given users the ability to share the lyrics directly from the lyrics screen by tapping the share button at the bottom of the screen. Similarly, users on the desktop app can tap on the microphone in the Now Playing bar to view the lyrics of a song.

On the Spotify TV app, users will have to activate the live lyrics feature by clicking on the Lyrics button on the bottom right corner of the ‘Now Playing View' of a song. Once activated, the lyrics would automatically be visible in the ‘Now Playing View.'

The live lyrics feature was first introduced in June 2020 for users in India and 25 other regions in Asia, Latin America, and South America.

Adidas Announces Coinbase Deal, Just Days After Announcing Its Entry Into the Metaverse

Adidas, the global sportswear manufacturer, is going all-in on crypto, announcing a partnership with Nasdaq-listed cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase, in the same week that it decided to splurge big on a plot of land in the blockchain-based virtual gaming world of The Sandbox. While neither announcements offer any details whatsoever and do little to indicate if there's any intended connection between the two events, it is plausible that the company plans to spend cryptocurrency in The Sandbox; if so, Coinbase could help it make the required investment.

Adidas took to Twitter to state that it is partnering with the crypto exchange Coinbase but revealed little about the nature of the partnership, ending the tweet with a phrase you hear quite often in the crypto world — “Probably nothing.” Coinbase confirmed the partnership, as it replied “[Good morning]… Welcome to the party, partner!”

Adidas also took note of the Ethereum-based VR game The Sandbox and suggested that it would build something in the game's virtual parcels of lands, calling the concept “AdiVerse.” Adidas already owns property on The Sandbox, as its name can be seen on a parcel of land at these coordinates. It is unclear whether the company purchased this land, or whether the land was allocated to the company by The Sandbox.

In a recent statement from an Adidas spokesperson speaking to City A.M., the company stated that the “metaverse is currently one of the most exciting developments in digital, making it an interesting platform for Adidas.”

While that statement in itself is a hint to the company's future plans, it is worth noting that Adidas launch an NFT on POAP very recently suggesting that Coinbase could be related to that effort, especially if the sportswear giant plans to release a larger line of non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Meanwhile, Coinbase has been in the midst of trying to launch an NFT marketplace of its own and we could see Adidas use that marketplace to distribute NFTs going forward.

The company could also use Coinbase to accept cryptocurrency as a form of payment, similar to what many other companies have done in the past through Coinbase Commerce, but all of this is mere speculation for now.

Adidas' movement in the space also appears to be a swift reaction to rival-brand Nike, which revealed a virtual world modelled after its headquarters on video game platform Roblox, becoming one of the first big brands to mark an official entry to the metaverse. The digital space, called “Nikeland”, allows players to outfit their avatar with special Nike products and is free for anyone to visit on Roblox.
