  • (2019-01-28) Husam ABBOUD: love it, just the best experiance to have the great Genius lyrics as smoothly integrated with Google play as this extension, i wish this would be part of google music play default in future
  • (2018-12-04) Sebastian Toro: gracias realmente
  • (2017-10-10) Pierre Blarre: Nice one, only weird thing is the Chrome menu button, if you click on it and then hit Genius Play you reach a page to start your own Chrome extension, I think it's a little bug
  • (2017-08-18) Drew Walsh: It's giving me short stories instead of song lyrics
  • (2017-08-01) Rodrigo Mtz: I really like it, I just wish you could resize the window, or make it a bit smaller because when you open it, it covers more than half of the screen. Other than that it works great.
  • (2017-03-08) John Looney: Simple, works well. Non-intrusive small button on the Play Music screen.
  • (2017-01-22) Shaun Keys: Great extension! Works even better than the official Genius.com extension! Got disappointed and was going to make my own but now i don't need to!
  • (2016-12-14) Luiz Freitas: mate, great extension! simple, on point and non-intrusive. hope you keep it like that. cheers

  • (2020-01-27, v:1.1.0) Hanni Abu: Recently stopped working
    This extension recently stopped working, maybe about a month ago. I believe there was a Play update that might have broken this. May be as simple as updating a class selector for where to insert the lyrics button.
  • (2020-01-10, v:1.1.0) Husam ABBOUD: not working anymore
    such a great extension it is a pitty this stopped working :/
  • (2019-05-24, v:1.1.0) Husam ABBOUD: Congratulations + // Explicit version
    Hi there, congratulations on your experiance, i love your extention! love it love it love it, one small issue I have that it can't locate lyrics of some songs that has "(albom version explicit)" on title like these of Lil Wayne https://0s0.com/2K75yaR anytime a song with "albom version explicit" which is something in vast majority of Rap music, it can't be located the extention dosn't work :( thanks again kind regards,
  • (2019-03-15, v:1.1.0) not displaying the correct lyrics all the time
    when the track title has something in brackets it does not display the lyrics but scripts or irrelevant lyrics
  • (2018-09-14, v:1.1.0) Chris Fleet: Request
    Is support for Youtube Music something you'd consider adding please? This extension is exactly what I've been looking for & I would really appreciate being able to use it with Youtube Music.
  • (2017-12-04, v:1.1.0) Daniel Wilhoit: Code
    Any chance you could post the source?
  • (2017-08-01, v:1.1.0) Rodrigo Mtz: Resize window or make it smaller
    I wish the option to resize the window, or make it a bit smaller because when you open it, it covers more than half of the screen.
  • (2017-03-08, v:1.1.0) John Looney: Idea: Translation
    I occasionally listen to lyrics in a different language. It'd be cool to pipe the lyrics through Google Translate :)
  • (2016-12-17, v:1.1.0) Joshua Murari: Text color is unreadable
    When using, midnight theme for google play music. The text color with the back ground is unreadable.
