Lyrics for Apple Music web player in beta testing

Apple is working on making some big changes to Apple Music for web. The tech giant today updated the website with beta support for viewing time-synced lyrics on the web.

Apple added real-time lyrics to Apple Music with the launch of iOS 13 in 2019. When lyrics are displayed on a device, Apple music will highlight the line that is currently played in white. The feature also allows users to skip to any part of a song by tapping on a lyric.
