Did it ever happen to you: You're singing a song in your head and you want to look it up on Apple Music, but you just can not think of its name or even who recorded it? If you can sing in iOS 12, you can search for it because you can only search for song lyrics with the Update Songs in Apple Music. It's like Shazam, only instead of identifying music for sound, it uses the lyrics in your head.
Paid and free trial subscribers have had access to the lyrics for most songs in Apple Music since iOS 10, but this is the first time The Search for Music for song lyrics results in songs and albums with similar names like the search query also results. Even better, in iOS 1
Because Apple Music does not provide lyrics for all the songs in its database, this inversion is used -Lyrics search will not work every time. If you are not an Apple Music subscriber, you will not be able to play any of the results. If you try, Apple will prompt you to subscribe to their streaming service. Once you've found the name of the song, you can search for it on iTunes or another streaming music service instead.
The search for lyrics could not be easier. Start the music app and tap "Find" in the bottom right corner. Next, tap Apple Music instead of Your Library and enter your lyrics in the search bar. You may notice a few suggestions as you type. If you see the correct text "in songs," you can simply tap on this result to see a list of songs with those lyrics.
If you do not receive immediate suggestions, enter a few more words, then press "Search" on your keyboard. The next page displays music, artist, album, playlist, and music video suggestions. While you see a hit in Top Results you should pay more attention to the songs
Under the heading Songs you can see a song or several songs with matching lyrics displayed in bold and italics. If you do not see the correct title or see italics in italics, tap "Show All" next to Songs to see more results from songs with these lyrics. You can also tap Title to see if it's the correct song as long as you subscribe to Apple Music, otherwise you'll only be promoted to subscribe.
That's all it takes … on iOS 12. Users running iOS 11 or Android will not be able to see this feature on their Apple Music searches. While Android users may be unlucky at the moment, iPhone users have the opportunity to try it out by jumping to the iOS 12 beta program.
