Shazam has a new feature for Android users

Shazam will recognise the music that's playing through your headphones.

When you turn on the Pop-up Shazam feature, it adds a persistent notification to your Android notification drawer.

The music recognition app Shazam has become a little bit better again.

Shazam works automatically with headphones plugged in; there's no feature to toggle on/off. Shazam also introduced "Pop-Up Shazam" which basically lets the app float on other apps making it easier to use it.

Shazam is a pretty great tool to have on your smartphone for identifying music that's playing.

Via Pop-Up it is now possible to start recognizing your music from any app.

Apps that tell you what song it is that you're hearing without having to take down the lyrics and Google it have been heaven sent for those of us who can't sleep not knowing what that song was.

Despite the fact that Apple owns Shazam, this feature is exclusive to Android devices. Whenever you wish to use Shazam to identify a song, simply tap on the Pop Up floating button. That is due to iOS having more restrictive permissions and not allowing apps to monitor background audio. In order to benefit from the new feature, you'll have to enable a new floating button that is overlaid on the screen. If at any time you want to remove it, all you have to do is drag it to the bottom of the screen.
