How to have a Google Now Playing history

The Google Now Playing problem

Google Now Playing it is extremely useful. Your device automatically starts listening to whatever is in the background. You do not need to press any button as in Shazam, there is a danger that the song will end before you can identify it. However, there is a big problem with Now Playing, and that is that it does not offer any kind of history. The system will offer you the song name on lock screen, but in case you forget to look at it, the name will be lost in a bit void.

Obviously, this is a great weakness on the part of Google. Not having an active history of this system goes against the feeling of automating the process. If the idea is not to depend on the user, why force him to have to look at the screen when there can be situations in which the user is impossible? Luckily, there is a solution.

Now Playing history: adding the missing feature

To achieve a Now Playing history, it will be enough to install an application called, very appropriately, Now Playing History. This app will offer you a chronological history of all the songs that the system has been detecting. In addition, you can listen to a sample of the songs in case you do not know what it is, and you can even mark them as favorites. It will also offer you other details such as the album art and name. You can also delete songs that you don’t want.

In addition, there is the option of view detected songs on a map. It is an optional function that will allow the app to use your location to know where you have listened to a specific song. Thus, you can search for songs by looking directly where you were. Another interesting option is the possibility of export your history to Google Drive or Gmail and share it wherever you want, in addition to having a backup.

If you are interested in trying Now Playing History, you should keep in mind that it is a payment application. It has a price of 1.49 euros in a single payment through the Play Store:
