Deezer incorporates Lyrics into the streaming experience

As you might guess, this means that listeners can hit a button in the music player and see all of the words to a track while it plays. Lyrics features two modes. Sing-a-long mode syncs up the words with the music, karaoke style. Score mode puts all of the words on one screen so the listener can read at their own pace.

The new feature comes thanks to a partnership with LyricFind, one of the current legal options available. According to Deezer’s blog post announcing the deal, the tie-up is “the first-ever implementation of synchronized lyrics from a major streaming service.”
