Amazon has rolled out its X-Ray trivia feature to its Music platform.

Amazon Music has offered lyrics for several years, but as Engadget reports, Amazon is now extending the trivia part of X-Ray to its Music apps. When you start playing a song, look for “X-Ray” at the bottom of the screen, next to the lightning-bolt icon. Tap it and Amazon Music will serve up details about the song or artist playing. Swipe up to move through each fact.

The option should pop up on tens of millions of songs, according to Engadget, which says Amazon promises “a behind the scenes look at song information, artists, and albums with access to everything from fun trivia to song credits, related content, and more.”

On Kacey Musgraves’ “Space Cowboy,” X-Ray showed some basic details about the song like its release date, its current placement on the country charts, and awards won by Musgraves.

Spotify has a similar feature, dubbed Behind the Lyrics, in partnership with Genius. On select songs, just swipe up from the bottom for more details about what’s playing.

Amazon X-Ray, meanwhile, dates back to 2011 when it rolled out on Kindle ebook devices, and allowed readers to learn more about certain characters, places, and phrases via Shelfari.com and Wikipedia without leaving their ebook. It was later extended to Prime Video movies and TV shows, pulling data from Amazon-owned IMDb. Just tap the screen while watching for more.
