Searching for song lyrics has now become a bit easier, especially on Google where most people go to for them.
The search giant has just partnered with Toronto-based lyric licensing service, LyricFind, to start displaying lyrics of popular songs on top of the search results. This means you no longer have to click through websites just to find them.
LyricFind announced today more than 4,000 publishers (including all major ones like Universal Music, Sony, and Warner) will be making “millions” of dollars from the new deal and will be supplying the lyrics, which will be added to Google Search and Google Play Music.
“It’s all based on usage. Royalties are paid based on the number of times a lyric is viewed. The more it’s viewed, the more publishers get paid,” LyricFind CEO, Darryl Ballantyne, told Bloomberg.
As of now, the new feature is already available in the U.S. but will soon be available worldwide since LyricFind has already obtained licenses to make it work globally.
