For over two years, Spotify has been offering a Behind the Lyrics feature that allows users to see parts of the lyrics, accompanied by comments from other listeners and sometimes general information by the performers themselves. Now the company is finally working on showing subscribers what they really want to see: plain simple scrolling text without any bells and whistles.

Spotify confirmed to TechCrunch replay some people as part of a limited test. The site has found reports that this feature is being shown to listeners in Canada, Indonesia and Mexico. In these markets, texts are available under playback controls, exactly where Spotify displays Behind the Text content for other users. You can also expand the map to get the full screen. As the songs continue, the lyrics scroll automatically, dynamically adjusting to the music.
Hopefully the test will end on a positive note and all Spotify users will have access to plain text. This will also be the chance for the company to add the feature back to the desktop application, something that subscribers have been vocal about for more than three years.
