Long-press the button and a popup will emerge asking if you wish to turn on Auto Shazam. Tap “Turn On” here, then Shazam will ask permission to record audio, so choose “Allow.”
  • Now that Auto Shazam is enabled, anytime Shazam hears music, it will identify the song and notify you when it gets a match. It may take a moment, but it’s amazingly accurate when it comes to finding any song playing. This even works when your screen is off (just like the Pixel 2), but it’s more consistent with the screen on and unlocked.
  • To see the name of any song, just tap the Shazam found notification and you’ll be taken to a page with more details. If you wish, you can create an account with Shazam (which just requires an email address) to save your list so that always have access to it. This provides an easy way to stream or purchase the songs Shazam has identified.
