SoundSeeder 1.0 Arrives As A Single App With Lollipop Support, Landscape Mode, Linux And Windows Syncing, And More

SoundSeeder takes a bunch of Android devices lying around and turns them into a poor man's sound system by syncing audio playback across all of the phones and tablets so that they pump out tunes in unison. The app hit the Play Store in two parts last year, but now everything's bundled up into a single package. Not only that, it's now ready to shed its beta tag.

As of Christmas Eve, the soundtrack to the hit Disney movie Frozen sold more albums than any other in the year 2014. Yep, even more than Taylor Swift. In what is likely just one of several post-Christmas deals and freebies to come, Google is giving it away for free.

SoundHound Update Includes Option To Automatically Add Searches To A Spotify Playlist

You need never be plagued by a haunting tune you just can't identify in this modern world. There are plenty of apps that can ID a song in mere seconds, but the new version of SoundHound adds a cool trick. It can add songs you ID to a Spotify playlist for easy listening. This functionality was debuted a few months ago for Rdio, but I'd wager there are more Spotify users out there.

Plantronics Backbeat Fit Review: A Sporty Bluetooth Headset That Crosses The Finish Line

One of my favorite Bluetooth earphones of all time is Plantronics' Backbeat GO 2. Ever since I got it over a year ago, you'd rarely find me outside of home or work without seeing it around my neck. It accompanies me on my walks, my shopping, and most of my daily activities. It is small and minimalistic, easily fits in my purse, and lightly hangs around my neck when not in use. It's also quite comfortable to wear for 2 or 3 hours continuously, enough to entertain me on all of my outings.

Shazam 5.1 Arrives Sporting A Material Look, Holding Hands With Spotify, And Knowing The Latest Trends

For a big, bald genie like Shazam, keeping up with the latest trends can be a struggle. But—crap, this is embarrassing.

Ahem. For a music identification and discovery app like Shazam, it's important to keep up with whatever's currently trending. So the latest version has received a brand new redesign that focuses on just that. The new homescreen places an emphasis on what's popular, what people are listening to in your city, and what your friends consider dope (through Facebook support).

In the last month Google has offered up the Guardians of the Galaxy mixtape, Lorde's Pure Heroine, and Night Visions by Imagine Dragons entirely for free. Now you can grab deadmau5's electronic album titled > album title goes here < (no, that's not a note for me to come back and wiki the name later). Like previous deals, there's a good chance this one is only available in the US thanks to labels, licensing, and other shenanigans.

[Deal Alert] Ya Ya Ya, Google's Giving Away Lorde's Album 'Pure Heroine' For Free

It's definitely not as cool or timeless as that Guardians of The Galaxy deal, it's probably limited to the US or a few countries, it's likely not the most targeted deal for our audience, but we still feel compelled to let you know that Google is offering Lorde's Pure Heroine album for free right now on Play Music.

If this is your jam, you'll be happy to find 10 songs in Lorde's album, including the chart-topper "Royals," and a few other interesting songs like, "Tennis Court," and "Glory And Gore." Unfortunately, this isn't the Extended Release, so you'll be missing out on the catchy, "No Better." I'd better stop typing before I completely morph into Ryan Seacrest.

Google Play Music Starts Providing Shortcuts To Relevant YouTube Videos

Over the last few weeks, we've heard of a feature popping up for Google Play Music All Access users here and there (thanks for the tips!), whereby the app or web interface would link users to relevant music videos inside the app. When listening to or browsing music, the app would show a YouTube icon, sometimes in the center of the screen, sometimes weirdly positioned in the "now playing" bar. It was clear Google was still testing the feature but it looks like now, with the publication of an official change log for Play Music's latest update, Google may be flipping the switch on a wider basis.
