Acquired by Apple in late 2017 , Shazam has always been considered by many to be one of the best music recognition apps on the market, offering premium and free versions and connection to music services, with special emphasis on Spotify, thus allowing synchronization between accounts.
This new life of the application was responsible for bringing to its users interesting news such as the effective exclusion of ads in the free version and maintenance of basic functions, as well as the inclusion of new ones such as the availability of the so-called “Shazam pop-up”.
This new function creates a bubble for quick access to the application, allowing it to be activated without the need to change the screen, making it very welcome especially among those applications that do not allow minimization like Youtube and others.
To activate the new feature, the user must have the latest version of Shazam installed on their smartphone (for now, only for Android), and follow these steps:
- Open the Shazam application
- Access the “My Shazam” located in the upper left corner of the screen
- Click the gear icon (or profile photo)
- Enable / disable Shazam Pop-Up through the key and accept the requested accesses
After doing this, a notification will appear that can be used to trigger the bubble button, which will appear on the screen, allowing you to check which music is playing without leaving the application running.
An interesting point in the function is that, in addition to allowing the identification of the song and adding to its favorites (if the account is logged in), it also displays the lyrics in real time and can be a good choice for those who want to sing along with music in apps that do not support the function in question.
So what did you think of the new function? Tell us in the comments!
