Do not be disappointed if there are no lyrics synced to your music.

The lyrics might not be shown because they are not connected to your music yet, even if those lyrics already exist.

The lyrics will be synced and displayed automatically if you search for them and connect them to your music.


After your music starts playing, search for lyrics to sync by title or artist, and then select the appropriate lyrics.

When you find a set of lyrics that you like, click Edit Sync Lyrics, and then click Finish when the mode switches to Edit Sync Lyrics mode. That’s it! The process is all finished when “The selected lyrics have been connected to your music” message appears. It couldn’t be any easier! J


If there are no lyrics available to sync with your music after you search, you can become the first person that uploads them by clicking Edit Sync Lyrics.
