One of the applications to recognize music available in Spain is Shazam, an application whose quality is more than proven and that was worth it to be bought by Apple itself. This, far from the application disappearing from Android, has finally served to continue improving, eliminating its ads (in exchange for integrating some functions with Apple Music).
Although tools such as those included in the Google assistant make staying relevant very difficult, in Shazam they have been working on functions that, although they have been present for some time, since the launch of the last update have taken center stage. Having Shazam in a notification is one of these features.
Hey Google, what is this song: tara tarara tararara taGoogle Assistant is now capable of identifying your singing or humming as music and will indicate which song it thinks you are singing.
Shazam in notifications is as useful as you think
I admit that since I’m not a very musical person, apps like Shazam have never been among my favorites. Even so, among friends and acquaintances for many it is an application of vital importance, whether in a bar, in the gym or even on the street. His use of technology was almost unbeatable, although the user experience does have room for innovation. Like, for example, making the process of searching for a song as easy as possible.
It’s not that Shazam doesn’t make an effort to make it as easy for its users as possible, since in that sense the app is exceptional. Shortcut in quick settings, automatic mode or a floating bubble are some of the best, but not the only ones.
Since the last update, Shazam has started activating the Shazam notification for everyone, a notification that is perpetually present in notifications and allows us to have direct access. The function is in the settings and your name is Shazamear from notification. If you click on it, Shazam will start analyzing the sound without opening the application.
Once analyzed, the recognized music will appear in a notification that will remain until we delete it. If we do a new search again, the new music that it identifies will not delete the previous notification, but will create a new notification with the new theme. These notifications with recognized music will end up grouped, like when many different people talk to you on WhatsApp or Telegram.
