    Doesn't help. there is no specific answer on those threads if you need to subscribe to get it, and what songs have the lyrics. For example on apple's page drake's new album is shown as having lyrics, which do not show up on any of my devices.

    Same here. Cannot find a definitive answer however in beta I did see the lyrics menu option a few times (never worked yet) then it went away in later betas and not see it since. I am not an Apple music subscriber. Have seen some say you had to be and others who said they are not and have lyrics. So who knows.

    I am starting to think you have to have apple music because I have tried on several popular songs and have seen nothing.

    Lyrics is not an exclusive feature for Apple Music. You can always add your own custom lyrics using iTunes and sync songs to your phone. It works as expected and all my manually added lyrics show up properly.

    Actually the auto population of lyrics appears to be an Apple Music feature. I believe thats the feature being discussed here.
