Spotify and Google did not provide comment.

To access lyrics in real time on Nest Hub devices, tap the lyrics icon in the bottom right corner of the screen. This feature allows users to listen to music on Spotify while viewing the lyrics stream on the screen at the same time. It works for both Premium Spotify subscribers and members with Spotify Free accounts.

Spotify rolled out support for real-time lyrics on other devices back in november, so Nest Hub owners have had to do without this feature for quite some time. Now that smart displays have joined the list of devices compatible with Spotify’s live lyrics, users can enjoy mini karaoke as the lyrics are highlighted on the screen as they play.

Spotify tested its real-time lyrics back in 2019. The following year, this feature was initially launched in 26 global markets in Southeast Asia, India and Latin America.

Rivals such as Deser, Apple Musicas well as Amazonian music have had the same real-time lyrics feature on their respective platforms for many years now. YouTube Music added support for texts for android and ios devices in 2020, however users have to scroll manually (lame).

The Google Nest Hub Smart Display, an alternative to the Amazon Echo, is available in a variety of sizes. Users who want the best sound should get Google Nest Max Hub which has a 10-inch display, allowing those with visual impairments to better see their favorite texts and save themselves embarrassment at parties.

Google Nest Hub (2nd generation) has a 7-inch display and is not known for its audio quality like the Nest Hub Max. When the second generation model was released, Google boosted the bass to fifty%which was a significant improvement over the first generation model.
