Hey Google, what's the song that's all: da daaaa da da daaaa na naa naa ooohh yeah

Google Search has long been able to identify songs playing nearby. After waiting anxiously for it to arrive, it finally rolled out for Google Assistant in 2017. Now Google's music identifying capabilities are getting an upgrade: finding the song stuck on the tip of your tongue is now as easy as humming into your phone.

Shazam now lets you listen to identified songs in YouTube Music

Shazam now lets you listen to identified songs in YouTube Music

Shazam is clearly the handiest app when it comes to identifying a song you can't put a name on. Before being acquired by Apple, the service partnered with Spotify to let you listen to songs, until it naturally received integration with Apple Music earlier this year. Apple appears to want to play a fair game, though, as its music identification service is now starting to let you listen to songs with YouTube Music.

Shazam on Android now integrates with Apple Music

Shazam on Android now integrates with Apple Music

The Shazam app was Apple-fied with prominent Apple Music tags and links for your identified songs soon after the tech titan completed its acquisition back in 2018. But still, it could only connect to the Spotify app for exchanging your playlists, but not Apple’s own streaming app. That's changing now as Shazam has added the option (currently in beta) to link your Apple Music account for a similar cross-app integration.

Google finally added a dark theme in Android 10, and developers are taking notice despite the low usage of the latest version. We've seen a few apps like Instagram and Tasker hop on the dark theme bandwagon, and now you can add Shazam to that list. Shazam's UI wasn't quite as blinding as others, but it's still appreciated.

Apple Music adds dark mode, live lyrics while listening to songs

Apple Music adds dark mode, live lyrics while listening to songs

When Apple announced iOS 13, one of the things that caught my attention was its live lyric implementation in the music app. That was a logical step after the company's purchase of Shazam and I liked how it was integrated in the app instead of requiring a separate layer like Musixmatch. Now, that same functionality is making its way to Apple Music on Android, along with a dark theme.

Shazam can recognize music from apps, even if it's playing on headphones or in the background

Before Shazam or SoundHound existed, I remember searching for a year or even more before I found the name of a few songs I heard a couple of times on the radio. Now it's as easy as tapping a button and getting the result. And Shazam is bringing more handy improvements that make song recognition easier while using other apps or if you have headphones plugged in.

Apple completes acquisition of Shazam, will remove ads from free version

Shazam pre-dates the smartphone as we know it today, but it didn't become popular until everyone was carrying internet-connected devices that could play music. Then, everyone wanted to know what song was playing in the background. Shazam is no longer the only way to ID songs, but it's the only one now wholly owned by Apple. Why does this matter to you, an Android user? Shazam is about to be free.
