Smartphones have made our life extremely easy. We have almost everything at our fingertips now. They have replaced so many things in our lives, music players being one of them. Now you can listen to music continuously for 24 hours on your phone. You can also download free music on your phone.
The only thing that is missing in the entire music experience on our phones is the support for lyrics. Earlier, when we had CD’s, the lyrics were usually written on the CD covers. However, that’s not the case with digital music.
Very few players support lyrics on Android. So, we decided to check out the best lyrics app for Android. And, here we are with six of them. All these lyrics app show lyrics while the song is playing on the music player on your phone.
Without any further ado, let’s get started.
Lyrics is an app that has no fancy name. It is simply called as Lyrics. However, that shouldn’t make you think that this app is not worthy. It is a great lightweight app that shows scrolling lyrics for the song playing on your device. When you change the song, the lyrics also change automatically.
It also supports search, which means you can manually search for lyrics. With a support for major Android music players such as Google Play Music, Rocket Player, Spotify, Pandora etc., this app also lets you control music from its own Now Playing Screen. Meaning, you don’t have to switch players to pause or play music.
It also keeps a track of recently viewed lyrics and comes with light and dark themes. Further, you also get Chromecast support. The only drawback of the app is that it’s not free. It is a subscription-based service with a free trial of 14 days.
The app actually lives up to its name – QuickLyric. The moment you play a song, it will show its lyrics. That’s because it fetches lyrics for all the songs on your device. Thanks to this, the app also has offline support. An open source app that also lets you search for lyrics in more than 12 languages including English, Russian, Japanese, and Hindi etc.
Further, one of the coolest thing about the app is that shows lyrics in a floating window. While doing other things on your phone, you can also check the lyrics simultaneously. You can use the built-in split-screen mode of Android, in case you don’t like the floating window.
The app supports scrolling or synchronized lyrics. You also get a bonus feature of identifying songs. For instance, if you hear a song in a cab and want to know its lyrics, just tap the Identify Lyrics button in the app and it will do the dirty work for you.
Like QuickLyric, the Genius app also doesn’t have a built-in music player. It only shows you the lyrics. But, if you manually search for the lyrics, it shows you the video of the song too.
Compatible with most music players, the Genius app also provides facts and background story behind the tracks. In addition to that, it supports annotations. By tapping annotations, you will find more information about the lyrics of the song. By the way, here are some amazing facts about YouTube.
Again, similar to the QuickLyric app, you get the identify nearby music feature. However, you cannot download the lyrics.
Lyrics Mania offers a bunch of really cool features. In addition to showing lyrics for the songs played on external music players, this app also provides information about the artist.
The app supports lyrics search and song detection. You also get a bonus Postcard feature. With the help of this, you can create an image with quotes from the songs lyrics. You can then customize this postcard as per wish. Once you have created the postcard, you can directly share it to social networks.
Further, it also comes with many customization options. For instance, you can change the background of lyrics and the way they are displayed on your screen. You can also add a translation of lyrics if available.
With an easy-to-read interface, Lyrically is powered by Lyric Wikia. It is a collaborative fan resource of lyrics where anyone can contribute. Lyric Wikia is a platform for the fans, by the fans.
Lyrically is a simple lyrics app with a clean interface. When you play a song on any external player, you get its name on the top of this app. If lyrics are available, the Lyrics button will be highlighted. Tap the button to view lyrics.
It doesn't support scrolling lyrics and the music identification feature. But, it allows you to pause, play, and forward songs directly from this app. You can also share the lyrics with your friends.
It would be safe to say that the Musixmatch app combines all the features offered by the other lyrics app in one single app. You get external music player support for lyrics including YouTube. It comes with a built-in music player that lists all your locally stored songs in a nice interface.
You can directly play songs from inside this app. For external players, you get a floating lyrics widget. Tap it to view lyrics on any screen. Besides the song identification feature, this app also provides a wide variety of information for the songs.
You can also translate lyrics in real time. Like the Lyrics Mania app, you get a similar feature where you can create quotes from lyrics. This is known as LyricsCard in the Musixmatch app.
With the help of these lyrics apps for Android, you don't have to search for the lyrics every time you listen to a song. Thanks to them, now you can fully enjoy your music and understand its meaning as well.
