Genius for Android shows lyrics for whatever you're playing

Genius is all about digging up lyrics for that song you're listening to, so it would only make sense if it brought up those lyrics at the very moment the song comes on, wouldn't it? Sure enough, you're getting that feature now. A recent update to the Android app introduces lyric matching for whatever you're playing, in any app -- whether it's Apple Music, Google Play Music or Spotify, you'll get those verses as soon as they're relevant. They'll only be as good as the crowdsourced material allows, of course, but it beats scratching your head when an unintelligible line comes up mid-tune.
