Google adding song lyrics above search results

In a recent statement, Google has revealed that it is adding full song lyrics on top of its search results. The new 'lyrics' feature is part of Google's Knowledge Graph, which unfolds quick answers for the users' searches, without needing them to click on multiple search results.

According to the details shared by Google, the company is adding the word 'lyrics' to the song name in the search bar, to show a sizeable section of the lyrics to the Google users in North America. The section of lyrics showing up for the users will have link to the full lyrics on the Google Play store page.

As of now, the new 'lyrics' feature is only available to the users of Google in US English.

Moreover, with a test having disclosed that the lyrics of only one song out of the present Top 10 singles in the iTunes store is currently available, it is apparent that the lyrics database is quite limited. However, the test has also revealed that Google is not just using content from the top search results.

In a confirmation of the new 'lyrics' feature added above search results, Google said in a statement: "There's a feeling you get when you turn to a song and you know that the words have two meanings. Well it's whispered that now if you go search the tune, maybe Google will lead you to reason."
