Spotify released on Thursday (18) the preview of lyrics from Musicas for all streaming platform customers, whether premium or free subscribers, as well as on all devices that have the app. The feature allows you to follow the hit by reading the song and also allows you to share excerpts from the songs in the social networks.

The project is a partnership between Spotify and Musixmatch and, according to streaming, “the lyrics are one of the most requested features by listeners around the world.”

“It's easier to play your latest favorite song when you know the lyrics. That's why, starting today, Spotify is empowering millions of fans around the world to sing louder and more confidently than ever with the release of Lyrics,” Spotify said in an official statement.

Therefore, the Olhar Digital prepared a tutorial for you to learn how to share these excerpts, which are postable in Stories on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Remembering that the tool already existed for some, however, it is now available for everyone.

It is also worth mentioning that there are two types of song sharing on the platform: music – with album photo and song name – and now also some phrases from the hit.

But let's get down to business!
