Always wanted to hear a song that you heard once or twice without knowing its name? Spotify can now help as long as you remember some of the words. You can now search for songs by lyrics, on the desktop, on the web or in the app.
The news comes through a tweet from one of the Spotify engineers.
My team just shipped something for iOS and Android ̵1;
Now you can find songs by lyrics 😉 on Spotify

We’ve tested and it already works whether you’re on a desktop, browser, or app with the latest updates. Instead of searching for songs or artists, you can type in some words from the lyrics that you remember. As long as you are reasonably accurate, it works reasonably well.
For anyone who has ever forgotten the song’s name (and isn’t that all?), This feature should be extremely helpful. Apple Music listeners already have a similar function, but other streaming services do not (yet).
