If you have ever heard a song that you like and you have been wanting to know its name, you will appreciate the existence of applications to recognize songs . With them, the mobile listens to the song and after a few seconds, if you’re lucky, you have the name of the song and its author.
On Android there are quite a few applications to recognize songs,
with tremendously popular names like Shazam, although there are many other applications to choose from, each one with its pros and cons. Turn your phone into a real song hunter with these eight apps to recognize songs .We start the list with the most popular song identifier app , Shazam. The application was bought by Apple a few years ago but luckily its Android version is still going ahead and without advertising.
Shazam has been into recognizing music for so many years
that it includes cool extra features. For example, the Auto Shazam mode plays all the music until you stop it, and it also has a floating button to identify songs faster .
SoundHound is another song recognition heavyweight. It works in a similar way to Shazam, with the advantage that it is also prepared for you to hum the song you are looking for (although the results will depend a lot on your abilities to hum with precision).
In SoundHound you can not only capture songs, but also play them later with the help of YouTube or Spotify. In some cases you can also get the lyrics, a to z lyrics of the song you were listening to.If you don’t feel like installing any apps for this task, you’ll always be left with Google Assistant. If you tap the microphone button in the assistant and the app detects that there’s music in the background, you’ll be offered the choice of What song is this? .
Once this is done, the Google Assistant will listen for a while until,
if you are lucky, it recognizes the song. He will then show you the result with information about the song and the singer, as well as related links to listen to the song on YouTube, Spotify and the like .Deezer is a music streaming service that competes with Spotify, although it has something that, at the moment, is not present in Spotify: song recognition. Here it receives the proper name of Song Catcher , although in Spanish it is simply named with What song is this?
