Shazam Introduces Lite Version (Save More Space)

Shazam Introduces Lite Version (Save More Space) 1
Shazam Lite takes up less than 1MB of space, whereas the full-sized version takes up almost 26MB on our Samsung phone. Add that to its ability to use as little data as possible and to identify tracks offline, and you’ve got the ideal app for a lot of users in emerging markets. You can install it on older phones and Android devices with very little storage and RAM, after all, and even fire it up in places with limited connectivity.

The English version of the app will be available on Google Play in India, Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines and Nigeria sometime today, if it isn’t yet. The company is also releasing a Spanish version in Venezuela. If you live elsewhere and want a simpler Shazam, cross your fingers: we asked the company if it plans to release the app in other locations, and spokesperson James Pearson told us that it’s very much possible:

“GSMA estimated earlier this month ‘More than one billion people worldwide will be connected to mobile networks by 2020.’ I believe it was a logical strategy for Shazam to build on our global community of evangelists with new audiences in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. We will surely see similar efforts in other regions, as we see potential growth and wider audiences in all emerging markets. We have seen half the population of North America fanatically engaged with Shazam on their devices — and we’ve just announced the app has been downloaded a billion times. Shazam Lite represents our ongoing commitment to deliver the magic of Shazam to the entire world.”

Your chances of getting it look pretty slim if you’re in the US and other developed countries, though. Iordanis Giannakakis, the company’s Head of Android Engineering, said in a statement:

“We’re focused on providing Shazam in areas where connectivity is poor and available devices may be limited. Shazam Lite was built from the ground up with listeners from these regions in mind and it aims to bring the core, ‘magic’ Shazam experience to them.”

It has become a habit of applications to receive functionality in a non-uniform manner, especially with regard to different versions for Android and iOS. Not being the exception to the rule, Spotify also receives functionality at different times in its various versions.

After being released for the Android version last May, Spotify for iOS received finally the popular “Sleep Timer” feature. That is, iPhone users can also fall asleep listening to their favorite music / podcast without any problem.

Google Photos New tool will help you keep albums organized

Google Photos remains one of my favorite apps, presenting itself as the perfect way to keep all your photos and videos organized in one place. In addition, they are accessible virtually anywhere and on any device.

As one of the most popular Google Apps, they continue to invest a lot of resources in developing and implementing new features. The latest addition will help you keep albums organized by making it easy to find what you’re really looking for.

A small detail that can save you a lot of time.

The new implementation may go unnoticed for many users, but it is no less important. In the albums tab, Google Photos will start displaying a new option, which allows you to organize your albums according to different conditions.

For now, at this early stage, you will be able to keep albums organized by what has the most recent photo, which you modified less recently or simply in alphabetical order. Most likely, Google will continue to develop this new implementation to make it even easier to find the album you want.

This new implementation is coming first hand to Android smartphone users and is not yet available for iOS or the web version. However, it is important to note that it is being launched through Google’s servers. That is, it will not reach all users at the same time.

In order to receive the new implementation, you need to have the latest version of the App, so make sure you don’t have any updates available.

Although it has not been officially confirmed, it is believed that once reaching all Android users, the new feature will eventually also be available for iOS and the web version of Google Photos.
