The Apple Music-Spotify rivalry has been brewing for quite some time now, with the two music streaming subscriptions competing on numerous quirks and features.

However, one feature that made many customers stick to Apple Music is live lyrics – the ability to sing a song’s lyrics in real-time. Now, a similar ability by Spotify is arriving globally for users.

According to TechCrunch, The Stockholm-based music giant has retired the “Behind the lyrics” quirk and began replacing it with a more useful real-time lyrics feature.

Spotify has partnered with Musixmatch to establish the feature and roll it out to all users globally. The latter company is a music data and platform for lyric searching, with 50 million active users on its app.

Spotify will roll out the feature to every user (Free and Premium) on every platform supporting the service that includes mobile devices, desktop, and SpotifyTV on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, Samsung, Roku, LG, Sky, and Comcast.

Here is Spotify’s tutorial on how to access the feature on mobile devices:

  1. Tap on the “Now Playing View” on a song.
  2. While listening, swipe up from the bottom of the screen.
  3. You’ll see track lyrics that scroll in real time as the song is playing!
  4. To share, simply tap the “Share” button at the bottom of the lyrics screen and then select the lyrics you want to share—and where you want to share it—via third-party platforms.
