musixmatch is a searchable lyrics catalogue of more than 12,4 million lyrics in 50 languages. It is accessible on Windows and Mac through Spotify, as well as on mobile apps for the iOS, Android and Windows Phone operating systems. It is also available on Apple Watch and Android Wearable.

musixmatch displays synchronised lyrics to view in time with the music being played. On its native apps, it bears the ability to scan all the songs in a user's music library and find lyrics for them all, as well as to be used as a native music player. On the Android platform, it also supports many major music streaming services like Spotify, Google Play Music, Deezer, Rhapsody and Rdio and can display lyrics floating above the application.

Their API-enabled feed allows website owners and mobile application developers to legally display and monetize the lyrics in their database.
