Our Lyrics feature is one of our favorites, but we know we can make it better. We've had good suggestions in our ideas forum but we need more of your opinion to take another step in order to improve this so popular feature. :ear_tone2:

For this reason, we'd like to invite you to post your feedback here, in one place - so that our product managers and developers can see what we're missing out! :nerd:

let us be able to add the lyrics to the songs like in musixmatch but for deezer let us be the ones to add the lyrics if the lyrics are missing in a song!

Give us a tool to add lyrics on our own, also let’s us rate them (just like we rate songs on flow). Some lyrics are totally out of sync, so would be nice  to have a feature so we can fix that on our own.

It would be nice to have the song lyrics displayed on-screen when running Deezer in Android Auto.

A useful feature for someone who does a lot of singing in his car. :)

Love this feature, but it should allow lyrics to be added and edits to the added lyrics.

when we download songs for offline use also download the lyrics with them PLZ!!!

I think it would be nice to be able to add translation !

I think it would be great to have a translate option for songs that are not on the same language of the app/phone/account.

 

So for example, you could have display the lyrics on the same native languages and then put a button that says “Tap to translate” or something and it will auto translate with Google or whatever engine you use. (You can always put a message that the translation may be not fully accurate but it would help at least when you want to know more or less what the song is about).

 

Also as mentioned above, allowing to make it everyone to add lyrics by themselves. Maybe adding it as ‘local’ lyrics so it would allow for everyone to make their desired changes without having to make changes on the database.

That is not safe. You get distracted by the lyrics and do pay attention to driving

Yes that would be great!

That would be great because now it says “we are working on it “ but the lyrics never come.

many people will have it so use the community !

Same, but for CarPlay too!

Feature to resync/sync a music with wrong/no syncing.

Option to change fonts and sizes.

Option to read the lyrics with phone sideways (so that the text would be bigger and easier to read).

Userlevel 2

make it available to see the lyrics offline

To many songs, the lyrics aren’t synchronous

My personal top feature requests:

  1. Lyrics on Chromecast
  2. Offline lyrics
  3. Participative edition of lyrics (and sync)

Nice to have:

  • display settings customization (like size, spacing, font...)
  • lyrics translation

I love the Lyrics feature.  I do wish the words were bigger on my iPhone.  Can they be linked to the ios which has font size settings?  Cheers

Thank you all for the great feedback! It's been super useful and our product managers were delighted with your suggestions. So hopefully we'll see some of them coming through :wink:

Feel free to continue posting your suggestions, we'll continue to keep an eye here :thumbsup_tone2:

I’d like to be able to forward/track from the lyrics display, on Android.

I would like to control the music while reading the lyrics.

I think we should be able to sync lyrics. Because sometimes the sync is really garbage. And it would be awesome to change fonts.

If you are going to implement community lyrics editing feature, think about how to support the right ones, because while musixmatch is taking lyrics from community, their solution is flawed:

Lyrics are getting written by people, then verified by “moderators” who are also people but with a lot of karma-like points. The problem is that lyrics are getting locked after their review, so if lyrics are wrong you can left a feedback about wrong lyrics, but not correct them right away. Basically, a lot of them moderators are karmafarmers, who don’t even look at the lyrics anymore. Last year I was complaining about X by Welshly Arms. I did it twice, but the lyrics are still wrong. Lyrics on Genius were corrected, thanks to IzaFfiew, who noticed our comments, but not on musixmatch.

The fault's all my own
And I should've known

So maybe lock them by people who surely can be trusted (your music moderators idk) or don’t lock them at all

Maybe give points not to users, but to lines. Like everyone can (almost)anonymously “fix” a thing in a certain line (text or time code) and the others are voting for this change or another (like/dislike/redundant), or pick one they like more to sing along. This looks complicated, but idk, maybe there’s something in it.

Seems to work well. But I don’t like that the entire album art is the Lyrics button. Only the Lyrics button should do this. The rest of the album should either flip to album info (release date etc) or go to the album page.

What about adding Airplay Video and Cast Video to lyrics so you can play them on the TV?

As I say this, I see in one song it is not tracking the lyrics in time with the song. Maybe if that’s a limitation of this song it should add a little note saying this song doesn’t support lyrics synchronisation so it doesn’t look like a bug.
