What is the app to recognize songs? You hear an awesome song somewhere & want to know what song is this. Well, this is an incident that has happened with almost every one of us. Nowadays, we have Apps made to do the exact same thing, i.e., identify the song that’s currently playing around us. Now, if you go to the Google Play Store, you will find a ton of Song Finder Apps, but which is the best Song Identifier App?
Well, in this article, we listed out some of the best Music Recognition apps for Android that you can use to identify the song currently playing around you. Like always, this list isn’t in any particular order, so the App on the first place doesn’t necessarily mean it is the best song identifier app. Same for the app that comes at the end of the list.
You know it was coming. Well, Shazam should be your very first choice for an App to identify music tracks. With over 100 Million downloads & reviewed by over 3 Million users on the Google Play Store, this app does the job pretty well. All you need to do is open Shazam and then tap on the button that says “Touch to Shazam”. In a few seconds, it will identify which song is playing around you and show you the name.
Moreover, there is also a “Lite” version of the app that does just the identification of the songs & it’s a very small app with no extra functionalities like the regular Shazam app.

If you are lazy like me, say “OK Hound… what’s that song?” & SoundHound App will identify the song for you. Pretty cool, right?
