Shazam has a lot more competition from Siri, Cortana and other services, but the music recognition service has tried to stay on top with Google Now integration, faster recognition and other new tricks. The company has just added a feature that seems indispensable, but somehow wasn't available before: syncing across devices. As long as you're logged in to your account, it remembers any songs you identify and lets you see them from the desktop, iOS or other devices.

Like before, you then have the option to listen to the song on Spotify or purchase it on Google Play or Amazon. As Android Police points out, up until now your account was only good for tracking artists you follow, but couldn't saved identified tunes -- a pretty serious omission. Now, it will be easier to keep track of your Shazam activity, especially when you switch to a new device.Shazam (Google Play)
