Have you ever had a Last Song Syndrome (LSS) but couldn’t remember the song title even if your life depended on it? You’re in luck, as Spotify just rolled out a new ‘lyrics match’ feature for the IOS and Android.
As demoed by Spotify designer Lin Wang, the new update works as intended: simply type the random lyrics on the search bar and the app will show tracks that best fit the description. No more searching of ‘it really hurts‘ only to end up empty-handed.

As noted by The Verge, this feature is a familiar one to Apple Music users, who have enjoyed the option since 2018. This isn’t also the first time that Spotify implemented a lyrics-based feature, having rolled out the real-time lyrics add-on back in June, albeit in a limited capacity.
