With Android 13, YouTube Music received support for Google Cast devices in the audio output switcher. Now, Google is testing live scrolling lyrics along with a tweaked Casting UI. The best part about this testing is that some users have already received it.

According to a Redditor named u/PmMeYourChromebook, they spotted the new Casting UI when casting YouTube Music from Android to a Chromecast Ultra. There are a few other notable changes as well. Users are seeing that the song name, artist name, and album artwork, which were previously placed at the center of the screen, now sit to the right with the left-aligned text.

The vacant center space now makes way for the scrolling live lyrics, with the current verse highlighted in white. The background of this YouTube Music scrolling live lyrics remains a blurred version of the album artwork. After the song ends and the live lyrics finish, you will see a “list of credited songwriters.” Users also noted that the old, centered UI reappears if no lyrics are available. The album artwork takes the place of the YouTube Music scrolling live lyrics.

The new YouTube Music scrolling live lyrics feature isn't rolling out widely for many users. This feature is in line with what YouTube Music told the experts that users would get to see more lyrics features in the future. This was following a partnership with MusixMatch. However, when compared to Spotify and Apple Music, the lyrics on YouTube Music are static and do not scroll or get highlighted as the track plays.
