When a track in your library has Real-time Lyrics, you’ll see a small clock alongside the lyrics icon: <img src='https://roon-community-uploads.s3.amazonaws.com/original/3X/9/2/92121908240a6abcacb324bef573d060a00bb379.jpeg'/> <img src='http://roon-kb.s3.amazonaws.com/77a2e82f-dc04-4536-844b-68f390dfbb9a.png'/> <br> When you play a song with Real-time Lyrics, your Display will show lyrics on-screen, scrolling them along with the song. <img src='http://roon-kb.s3.amazonaws.com/3ea65496-a819-400c-9041-215209850fe8.gif'/> ###### Note that Real-time Lyrics can be turned off from the Displays tab of Settings. Also note that the Real-time Lyrics **icon** is currently only available for content in your library. Real-time Lyrics will be shown for content that's not part of your library, but the icon will not be shown while browsing. We hope to address this limitation in the future. <br> # Compatible Devices The devices listed below are known to work as Roon Displays : ### Chromecast Chromecast devices, including Chromecast Gen1, Chromecast Gen2, Chromecast Ultra, and various other devices with Chromecast built in are compatible Roon Display devices.
