Shazam for Android lets you find songs on your home screen with widgets
The Shazam app, the popular music app owned by Apple, has released a new update for Android users that also brings support for new home screen widgets. The latest Shazam 13.7 update for Android is rolling out to all, allowing users to quickly identify a song that’s playing without opening the app. The new widget features a design inspired by You in Android 12 and Android 13. The update is already available for download via the Google Play Store.
According to 9to5Google reports, the new Shazam widget for Android phones lets you quickly identify a song without opening the app. You can also quickly identify a song using an alert in the notification section, such as a report.
This new version of the home screen widget comes with a default size of 5×1 but you can reportedly change it to 1×1. It also has support for “Dynamic Color” themes based on your app’s background image for phones running Android 12 and Android 13.
If you use the 1×1 widget, it will appear as a moving circle when active. The widget says they have been updated to display the artwork for the referenced song.
Once identified, users will see the song, artist, and album artwork in the widget along with the option to share the result to other apps.
