The Spotify music streaming service has apps that allow you to listen to music on your iPhone, computer, and several other types of devices. The service has been around for several years and has consistently been upgraded and improved. Part of these changes involves the addition of new features, including one called “Behind the Lyrics.” This is a feature that will show on the “Now Playing” screen while a song is playing from one of your playlists, and provides information about the song and the artist.
However, you might prefer not to use this feature, which can leave you looking for a way to disable it. Our guide below will show you where to find that setting so that you can disable Behind the Lyrics on your iPhone’s Spotify app.
How to Stop “Behind the Lyrics” in Spotify
