Starting today, Apple Music on Samsung smart TVs will be able to display real-time synced lyrics that animate along with the music.

This feature is available only for Samsung TVs that can run the Apple Music app — that is, those launched from 2018 through 2020.

Samsung:

With time-synced lyrics on Apple Music, each song is brought to life through a unique, colourful, and dynamic background that is generated from the album art. [...]

Time-synced lyrics on Apple Music is seamless and intuitive on Samsung Smart TVs. Users can easily scroll through a song by flipping through the lyrics, jump to a certain verse, skip straight to the chorus or see where they are at in the song whenever they want.

Earlier in April, Samsung TVs were the first TVs in the world to support Apple Music. No firmware update is needed; users only have to download the app from the Samsung Smart TV App Store and sign in with their Apple ID.

In Singapore, Apple Music costs S$9.98/month but there’s also a S$4.98/month plan for university students. Alternatively, families can get the S$14.98/month plan that allows access for up to six people. The subscription will give you access to 60 million songs, as well as your entire iTunes library, which you can listen to either online or off across your devices. You also get ad-free music videos and live and on-demand radio shows from Beats 1, a 24/7 music radio station owned by Apple.
