Is there a way to elegantly integrate a lyric display for tracks that have embedded lyrics under a tag? It would be awesome to have Vox automatically display the playing track's lyrics. The best way I can see to implement it is to have another "View" option, which would replace the playlist view with the current track's lyrics.

- Vox's most appealing quality is probably simplicity. Any additional feature compromises this a little. - Many people don't have embedded lyrics in their music.

Such a simple feature would surely make a minimal footprint on the interface and would take a developer minimal time to implement. Vox is already the music player of choice for OSX among audiophiles, and this demographic tends to embed lyrics into files in the interest of complete metadata.

I'd be curious to know if there are any plans or discussions about implementing a lyric feature.


Hello markkhosla!
First of all thank your for your feedback and making VOX better.
We are planning of lyrics in the future updates. Hope we can make it soon:)


Lyrics might ruin the simplicity of vox.
However, it's still needed.
Maybe you can find some brilliant way to Implement it.

Good luck~


Hello Sam. We are still investigating the best behavior for lyrics.


This app handles lyrics displaying gracefully, nevertheless it’s
distributed under the GPL license. You can take it as a reference.


Thank you Charles!
We will take it into consideration.
