    lyrics of playing song

    Hi all,
    irrespective of the interface which is used (browser on PC, apps on phone, Squeezelite, Squeeze Control etc) I think it would be useful if the displayed lyrics would update once a song is over and the next one begins.
    At the moment this update has to be done manually.
    Any chance to include an option to automatically update the info screen, or is this possible already?

    Thanks and regards

    When showing lyrics, review, or biography, theres some icons at the bottom. one of these looks like "(-)" - if this is blue (enabled), then the info will update when the song changes.

    What's the state of the button that controls this behavior?

    And iPeng imho, too. Which shows that this is a client feature. LMS
    cannot push that information to the clients, they have to pull it.

    Thanks guys,
    now I understand.
    I normally looked at lyrics with the option to click on the 3dots next to the song, click on more and then on lyrics.
    In this way the lyrics are displayed next to the playlist in the material skin and they do not update.

    But when clicking on the "i" next to the volume bar the lyrics and other artist info is displayed and it DOES update!

    Thanks for that.

    Cheers
