Shazam finally adds support for Android Wear, brings music discovery and lyrics to your wrist


I have to say that I was a little miffed when Shazam added support for the Apple Watch at launch, but never bothered to do the same with Android Wear, even after it was available for several months. Finally Shazam has given some love to the Android faithful with the latest update to the app.

Now the next time you hear a song that you aren’t sure about, you don’t have to whip out your phone. With just a couple of taps on your Android Wear watch, Shazam will tell you the name of the song after the app listens to it for a few seconds through the microphone on the watch. What’s even cooler is that you will also get the lyrics of the song on your watch, which is pretty cool.

Any song matches will be added to your My Shazam, which you will only be able to access from your phone. You will also need your phone in order to connect to Spotify, Deezer, or rdio.

So the next time you’re at a party and you want to show off something cool, just hold your arm up and Shazam it.

If you already have Shazam on your phone, you only need to update the app to start enjoying the goodness on your wrist. We have download links below.
