    Why can’t I see lyrics on a particular song?
    We get our lyrics from Musixmatch. If there are no lyrics on your favorite song, that means they don’t have it in their database.

    Why can’t I see lyrics on the same song as my friend?
    This can happen if you don’t have the latest version of the TIDAL app. Please make sure you update your app to its latest version on your device.

    Is there a way to see where the song is?
    The lyrics are time-synced with the song. But you can scroll and read any part of the lyrics. When you scroll, a sync button appears in the bottom right corner. Tap on that to go back to where the song currently is.
