What was missing on the global music behemoth that is Spotify? If you answered lyrics, you’re right. You may know a favorite song by heart, but it would’ve been nice to sing along to newer songs without having to Google their words.

The music streaming service heard your pleas, and, starting today, July 1, it is rolling out lyrics for all free and premium users in the Philippines. In partnership with Musixmatch, which bills itself as the world’s largest catalogue of song lyrics and translations, the feature allows listeners in-app access to millions of song lyrics in the language in which they are sung.

Users can access the feature just by tapping “Lyrics” at the bottom of the “Now Playing” screen when you’re listening to a song in the app.

According to Boon Ken Wong, Spotify’s Asia team lead for Editorial, a lyrics feature has been one of the most requested by Spotify users.

“Listeners can now get to know their favorite tracks—and the lyrics behind them—even better,” he said. “It’s another way Spotify is connecting fans and artists through the music they love.”

Spotify is launching the lyrics feature in 26 countries, including Spotify’s markets in Southeast Asia. The list of countries includesÂArgentina, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Mexico, Peru, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, El Salvador, Uruguay, Vietnam, Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan, Singapore, and Hong Kong.
