Versefy is a freeware lyrics finder for Spotify, Tidal, VLC, Foobar2000 and Winamp

Spotify is an excellent platform for discovering new songs. Having the lyrics sheet in view, can help you enjoy the song, until you memorize them.

Spotify has a built-in lyrics viewer, which in my opinion, is not perfect. And it's also limited to a couple of dozen countries. Well, you don't need it when you have third-party apps like Versefy, that do a better job.

The freeware program is available on the Microsoft Store, and is a 4MB download. It has a dark themed interface with a pleasant design, and an optional light theme that you may toggle from the toolbar at the bottom (2nd icon from the right).

The window is resizable, position it where you want to. Stick the window to stay on top of other programs by using the last option on the toolbar, this is useful when you are using Spotify minimized but still want to view the lyrics.

You don't need to log in to Spotify from Versefy, but the Spotify desktop program or the UWP app has to be running for the lyrics finder to work. However you can't use it with the web version of the music streaming service. Besides Spotify, Versefy also supports Tidal, VLC, Foobar 2000 and Winamp. This is perhaps the program's best feature. Click the respective icon in the top left corner of the interface, to switch to the music player of your choice.

Play a track in Spotify (or one of the supported players), and Versefy will automatically search for the corresponding lyrics and display the text in its window. The search isn't exactly fast, but I'm guessing that the performance depends on the lyrics provider. Click the Prev and Next buttons to navigate between different versions of the lyrics. The text is selectable, meaning you can copy and save the lyrics to a local file. Versefy displays the album art, track's title, artist name of the song that's playing. Hit the "lyrics from text" to open the lyrics page in your default browser.

Toggle the focus mode by clicking the 3rd icon at the bottom of Versefy's interface, and the app will switch to a minimal interface, aka an icon-less distraction free mode. Manage the lyrics providers from the program's settings. It supports three services: Musixmatch, Genius and Tekstowo.pl. You can disable/enable them, and move a source to the top of the list to prioritize it.

The application uses a bold font by default, which has a sort of shiny glow. If you find it difficult to see, turn off the option by clicking the 5th button on the bottom toolbar. The two icons next to it allow you to increase/decrease the font size.

Verdict

Versefy is a good lyrics finder, but it doesn't support auto-scrolling. I couldn't test the program with Tidal, but it works with VLC, Foobar, Winamp, and both versions of Spotify (Desktop program and the UWP app). The application isn't flawless, while it did its job for the most part, it failed to fetch the lyrics occasionally. These weren't local files which were improperly tagged, but tracks from the Spotify library. When this happens, you will miss the option to do a manual search. The lyrics viewer does not have a mini player for controlling the music.
