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.

Elon Musk Says Twitter Introducing NFT Profile Pictures Is ‘Annoying’

Elon Musk doesn't appear to be amused with Twitter's move to let users have verified non-fungible tokens (NFTs) as profile pictures. The SpaceX and Tesla CEO called the integration “annoying” and suggested Twitter was wasting engineering resources on this effort instead of trying to curb spam activity on the platform. Twitter recently began rolling out NFT features for its users, initially allowing its Twitter Blue subscribers on iOS to use NFTs as their profile pictures. The latest option is slightly different from the usual round-type display picture on Twitter. This one has a hexagonal shape.

Musk has previously extended support to blockchain technology, but he has also made public his displeasure when he disliked something. His recent criticism of Twitter's NFT move is likely triggered by the rising crypto giveaway scams by people who impersonate the Tesla CEO and other notable figures.

The problem reached the point where Twitter had to block unverified accounts that changed their names to “Elon Musk” in 2018.

“This is annoying,” said Musk in a tweet on Twitter's NFT decision.

He followed it with an explanation, “Twitter is spending engineering resources on this bs while crypto scammers are throwing a spambot block party in every thread.”

Twitter's NFT tool debut comes months after it allowed users to send and receive Bitcoin. An NFT is a unit of data stored on a digital ledger, called a blockchain, which is also the underlying technology for cryptocurrency. As this technology evolved, NFTs came into prominence. NFTs come with certificates that are used to verify a digital asset to be unique. They can represent photos, videos, audio clips, and other types of digital files.

Musk has often expressed his acceptance of this emerging industry on social media and via his electric vehicle company. In March last year, Musk announced Tesla would accept payments in Bitcoin, but reversed that decision in May citing environmental concerns. Earlier this month, Tesla started accepting payments in Dogecoin for some merchandise.
