There have been several occasions when I listened to a nice song and wished to view its lyrics just to learn the song by heart. Luckily, Apple has made it pretty up front to view lyrics in Apple Music not just on iPhone but also on Android, Mac, and PC.
So, the next time you couldn't understand the words of a song while enjoying Apple Music, you can quickly get the lyrics to remove the confusion. What's more, if lyrics are unavailable for a specific song, you will also be able to add custom lyrics.
