Ever since Spotify removed one of its core features - song lyrics - earlier this year, users have been clamouring for their return. So there was cause for excitement when it was announced that lyrics were included in Spotify's Japan launch yesterday.
While I have not been able to see it in action, since it's invite only (and I don't speak Japanese), the description of song lyrics on its new service in Japan from a Spotify spokesperson sounds pretty interesting:
"Lyrics has rolled out for the Spotify Japan launch, for the first time on mobile (Android & iOS) as well as desktop. This is a brand new experience with six animated layers on desktop.This is currently only available in Japan but we're looking forward to seeing a similar lyrics integration rolled out globally.We are partnering with local provider SyncPower on lyrics support in Japan."
