This iOS Widget Displays Lyrics For Apple Music In Real-Time

The Musixmatch Lyrics Finder app probably doesn’t need any real introduction. Music lovers from all across the world have regularly been utilizing the power of the app to enjoy synced lyrics with whatever song they happen to be listening to at that time from within their music library. Well, if you didn’t already know, Musixmatch Lyrics Finder app also has a native iOS widget available as part of its arsenal of tools that allows synced lyrics to be viewed directly from within Notification Center.

There’s hardly any music service that Musixmatch doesn’t support. After being named App of the Year in 2013, it’s now been installed on countless iOS powered devices in multiple different territories around the world. The lyric syncing service is also integrated in a number of different desktop offerings such as Spotify. However, in addition to providing synchronized lyrics for music stored in one’s music library, it seems that the service is also capable of serving up lyrics for music streamed directly through Apple Music without any additional work or updates required by the engineering team behind the app. Great news for those currently in their Apple Music free trial on iOS 8.4.


Getting up and running is extremely easy as well. You simply need to have the Musixmatch app installed from the App Store and have the accompanying widget set up to show in Notification Center. To do that, you’ll need to pull down Notification Center, be on the “Today” segment and select “Edit” at the bottom. Tap the “+” icon to the left of the Musixmatch app and you’re done. Stream a song from Apple Music, invoke Notification Center and watch in sheer delight as the lyrics are pulled from the official licensed database of tunes and displayed right in front of your very eyes.


Musixmatch also has an accompanying Apple Watch app, so if you’re looking for lyrics on the fly without having to pull out your iPhone from your pocket, then you can rest assured that this wonderful app has you covered in that regard.


The Notification Center widget also has the ability to invoke the Musixmatch app to search internally for tracks and identify music that is playing around you, similar to Shazam and SoundHound.

The app is absolutely free and can be downloaded from the link we have embedded below.
