Google has started showing lyrics in its search results. This was made possible as a result of a licensing deal between Google and one of the world’s greatest lyrics licensing company, LyricsFind.
Earlier this week, the company announced that through its deal with Google, lyrics of more than 4,000 publishers will be shown on Google’s search results and also within Google Play Music App.
The CEO of LyricsFind, Darryl Ballantyne was quoted when announcing the partnership to the public, he said that,
“We are happy to expand the depth and quality of lyrics available on Google’s services. We are working together to make lyrics available to a larger audience in a faster and more efficient way.”
Since Monday, Google started showing lyrics in search results in the USA and will soon release the feature to other part of the world. One thing for sure is that within a couple of days, the feature should be completely circulated.
According to a blog post
made by the LyricFind team,
“LyricFind has been the main driver behind creating a legal and global lyric infrastructure for all platforms, and its partnership with Google further strengthens this mission. LyricFind collects new royalties for songwriters and rights holders, and benefits music fans who engage more easily than ever with lyrics that inspire them.”
Good enough, the partnership will make lyrics searching easier for users. But sites that post lyrics will little or no more be helpful as like before, because users no longer need to enter any site to get a lyrics.
The CEO of LyricsFind also made mention that through this partnership, publishers and songwriters can make money (the more your lyrics are view, the more you are paid).
