Support for lyrics was first added in iOS 10, allowing users to view the lyrics for a song when listening to Apple Music. As of iOS 12, Apple implemented a feature allowing users to search for a song's lyrics to bring up the relevant song.

Apple says its Apple Music lyrics feature is now available in a total of 11 countries, including Australia, Canada, the UK, and the United States in addition to the new countries added today.

Lyrics can be accessed on iOS devices, Apple Music for Android, on the Mac, and on the Apple TV.

Apple in October 2018 partnered with Genius to add Genius lyrics for additional songs within Apple Music. Lyrics are not yet available for the full Apple Music catalogue, but are available for many songs.

What is so difficult with enabling lyrics worldwide. Isn’t the lyrics the same for the same song regardless of which country you live in?

Exactly - i understand a thing like maps is hard to implement worldwide. But lyrics should be a feature that’s turned on for near-everyone at the same time.

I hate staggered releases of software.
It's actually a licensing issue. The rights to display lyrics are licensed separately from the song, which means dealing with laws and contracts in each country or region.
