Identify Songs from Your Android Wear Device with EchoWear Song Search

Android Wear devices are perfect companions for all Android lovers. A smart watch with many functions under the hood can easily relieve a smartphone from carrying out certain tasks. Some of the said functions are quite obvious, but these smartwatches can do much more than just show you the time. Watches like the LG G Watch can also inform you about what song are you currently listening to, and this can be very useful in situations like a restaurant or other public place.

EchoWear Song Search is a Shazam or Soundhound equivalent for Android Wear that was developed by XDA Recognized Developer kevdliu. The app records a segment of the song and uploads it to Gracenote for identification. After few seconds, the results comes back and you are informed about the title of the song. The application is started by voice command, so you can start it without unnecessary delay. If you are lucky, you can buy a song and enjoy a new hit on you music player.

It appears that EchoWear Song Search is one of first applications for that platform, but surely this new platform will attract much more developers in the near future and entice devs to make some really useful application.

If you have an Android Wear device on your wrist, try out kevdliu’s app by visiting the EchoWear Song Search app thread.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
