Where can I find the lyrics of a song?
On the Now Playing screen of your app, tap on the lyrics icon.

Can I see the lyrics on my TV app?
Not at this time. You can only access this feature on TIDAL’s mobile apps (iOS and Android) and on the desktop app or web player. 

Can I use this feature for karaoke?
Each line of the song is highlighted as it plays, but not each word. The lyrics are time-synced, but you can scroll and read any part of the lyrics. Feel free to sing along! 

How do I close the lyrics?
iOS: Tap X on the top left corner to close and return to the Now Playing screen.
Android: Tap on the left pointing arrow to close and go back to the Now Playing screen. 

Why can’t I see the 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. You can contribute to the Musixmatch database here.  

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.
