YouTube Music users can now read lyrics while listening to a song on the service’s iOS and Android apps, however, the lyric feature is not available on desktop web player. YouTube says the feature is actively being worked on. Luckily you can use a free chrome extension for lyrics on YouTube and YouTube Music, or play YouTube Music with Spotify.

How to install this extension to the browser?

1. Open Lyrics ( Youtube / Youtube Music ) in Google Chrome browser and click Add to Chrome.

2. Open, play a song and you will see below Lyrics feature.

3. Click the Show button and you will see the lyrics.

However, the lyrics don’t scroll in real time as the song is playing as Spotify. Actually, you can play YouTube Music playlists to Spotify by downloading YouTube Music playlists to mp3 and then add to Spotify.
