Everyone has happened to want to know the lyrics of a song, to hum or simply a desire to understand its meaning. There are mobile application dedicated to this purpose, but the easiest thing to do is type in the title of a search engine. Soon the operation will be even easier and immediate surrender, thanks to the collaboration announced between Google and LyricFind , which was founded in 2004 and based in Toronto.
The partnership will bring lyrics directly in the SERP (ie results pages), without forcing the user to click further to external sites to start reading them. They will appear in the upper part of the interface, as shown in the screenshot attached below. The handshake will also affect the platform Google Play Music , allowing users to see the lyrics while listening. At the moment we do not know how much will have to wait for the rollout internationally: in the United States, however, many report that they have already managed to see the text directly in the search engine.
LyricFind, the greatest service to the world of song lyrics licensed, has signed a partnership with Google to expand its offerings. Adding the texts of more than 4,000 publishers in Google searches and within Google Play Music, LyricFind now offers licensed the texts displayed in the results of searches performed on Google and in the music.
we have not been disclosed the economic details of the agreement between the parties. It is certain, however, that the initiative will bring into the coffers of authors and record labels revenues related to the display of the texts. These are the words of Darryl Ballantyne, CEO of LyricFind.
We are happy to expand the integration and quality of books available on Google services. We are working together to make the texts available to the widest possible audience quickly and efficiently.
