Users of DTS Connected Radio will be able to access a big catalog of lyrics in 28 languages while listening in their cars, thanks to a partnership with LyricFind.

DTS Connected Radio is a hybrid radio system that combines over-the-air radio with IP-delivered content; the company and its subsidiary Xperi are promoting it as a global hybrid radio solution and say it will launch in a range of 2021 vehicles. (They recently announced that DTS Connected Radio will be in the Daimler MB User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system.)

The agreement with LyricFind provides features like lyrics display and search, synchronized lyrics “for in-cabin sing-along,” translation of song lyrics and lyrics for “Now Playing” music on all sources.

Bob Dillon, senior vice president, Connected Radio at Xperi, said automakers want this feature. He was quoted in the announcement, “We are pleased to be the first and only digital audio solution in our industry to offer this feature globally, which has emerged as a critical automaker requirement.”

“The new DTS Connected Radio lyrics feature, which is available in 28 languages, is fully integrated and immediately available to OEMs within the DTS Connected Radio platform,” the company announced.
