OK Google, Shazam this song Right From Your Android Wear Smartwatch

shazam-TextureMany Android Wear users have been waiting patiently for Shazam to  come to Android Wear smartwatch. Users who need to quickly discover music can now do so right from their wrist, thanks to an update Thursday 21st in the official Shazam app on Google Play.

The next time your phone is paired with an Android Wear watch, simply say, “OK Google, Shazam this song,” then wait for the results. Shazam will use your watch’s built-in mic to listen to the track, then display all necessary information right there on your wrist.

In addition to track information, if you swipe right after receiving your results, lyrics will be placed on your smartwatch, allowing for a quick singing session. We all know you have a beautiful singing voice.

If you have Shazam on your phone but don’t see shazam on your smartwatch, uninstall it and download again. Hit the link below for the updated Shazam app from Google Play.
