Shazam can now identify songs playing through headphones or in background


Shazam has been one of the best utility apps available to identify songs and find lyrics for them just by listening to the audio. However, one of the biggest downfalls of the app is the inability to identify music playing through a device’s headphones or in background. That’s what the developers have rectified with the latest update.

With the latest update, a new feature called Pop-up Shazam is introduced in the latest Android version of the app that can recognize audio played through headphones with Shazam working in the background.


The new feature works very intelligently in the background. When Shazam working in the background, any song played in the background or in headphone gets automatically recognized by the app. Once it recognizes the song successfully, Pop-up Shazam appears like a floating chat icon in your phone’s UI. It bubbles to the top of your current screen, and once it identifies a song it can show the lyrics as well. This feature can be enabled in the app’s setting.

In our tests, this Pop-Up Shazam works great with most of the audio streaming platforms including Spotify and YouTube. As of now, this feature is only made available to Android and not on iOS. So, iOS users have to wait a bit more to get this feature rolling out for them. While if you are an Android user, you can update your existing Shazam app or download the new one to get this feature running for you.
