Lyrics updated to version 3.0, adds Music ID to your Windows Phone

Lyrics for your Windows Phone was recently updated which added a few performance tweaks and Music ID. Lyrics is integrated with Zune to pull up not only the tracks in your music library but also the ability to list the lyrics as well.

Lyrics by Musixmatch (opens in new tab)  has a library of over 5.5 million officially licensed lyrics in eighteen languages. If the lyrics are in the library, Lyrics will help you sing along without missing a beat (or a word).

Other key features of Lyrics include:

  • Displays artist biographies, twitter handle and lyrics catalog artist by artist
  • Instant Search for songs by Title, Artist Name, or Lyrics Phrase
  • Add all your lyrics to your favorite list
  • Share a single verse or the full song on Twitter
  • Dedicate the lyrics through Facebook/SMS/Email to your significant other
  • Follows Windows Phone Theme

In testing the Music ID feature, it took little time identifying songs ranging from "Dream Police" by Cheap Trick to "Cinderella" by Firefall to "Riverdance" by Bill Whelan. Lyrics even coughed up the lyrics on all three as well.

Overall, Lyrics by Musixmatch is an impressive music player for your Windows Phone. Lyrics is a free app for your Windows Phone that you can grab here at the (opens in new tab) Windows Phone Store.
