Apple is testing song lyrics for Apple Music Web Player

0

Apple today updated its beta.music.apple.com site for Apple Music, introducing support for viewing song lyrics on the web. When listening to ‌Apple Music‌ content through a web browser on the beta site, there is now an option to see the lyrics by clicking the speech bubble in the top right of the screen.

The design of the lyric interface mimics the design of song lyrics available through the ‌Apple Music‌ app on iPhone, iPad and Mac, with the lyrics scrolling in time to the music on the right side of the screen. The feature is only available on the beta web player at the moment, but Apple will likely roll it out to the music.apple.com website in the future after it has been fully tested.

Apple has offered a web-based ‌Apple Music‌ player since 2019, with the website offering the same content available on iOS devices and Macs. The website allows ‌Apple Music‌ subscribers to listen to music on any device while the songs play directly in the browser.

Anyone can view the web player and listen to sample songs, but full access requires an ‌Apple Music‌ subscription tied to an Apple ID. It provides access to all Library and Playlist content, plus the same recommendations and mixes available in the ‌Apple Music‌ apps for iOS, Mac, and Android.

(Thanks, Noah!)
