Description & Details


See a history of all songs recognized via the "Now Playing" feature

The "Now Playing"-feature on the new Pixel 2 phones is awesome - but what happens if you don't catch a song's name before it vanishes from the lockscreen? It's gone forever :-O!

"Now Playing History" shows a history of all the songs you've listened to, sorted by date. Never miss a song again! You can tap on an entry to listen to the song in your favorite music player (customizable) and mark individual songs as "favorite". The app can optionally fetch additional details (such as the album name and album cover) for each song. An optional "map"-feature allows you to see where you've listened to each song. Explore where you've listened to the songs in your history, go back in time to see the playlist of your favorite night club, or reminisce about your last concert's set list.

The app supports Last.fm scrobbling - you can either scrobble individual songs by long-pressing on them, or automatically scrobble all newly recognized songs.

You're able to search your history of recognized songs and delete songs from your history by long-pressing on them.

You can export your entire history (or just specific songs) to Google Drive / Gmail to share them with friends or to keep a backup for yourself.


**Features**

*- Last.fm scrobbling support
*- Fetches additional details (album name, album cover) from Last.fm (optional)
*- Search, delete, mark as favorite
*- Open songs in your favorite music app (supports 10 music apps)
*- Export your history to Google Drive / Gmail
*- Map feature (optional)
*- Supports 10 system languages
*- Dark theme


All data is stored locally on your device. When using the optional "scrobbling" and "album art/details"-feature, we send the song title and artist to the Last.fm-API. If you're using the "map"-feature, the recorded locations never leave your phone. The app does not use Google Analytics or any other tracking or ad libraries.

  • Now Playing History is an App Every Pixel 2 Owner Needs | Droid Life

    (6 months ago)

    Now Playing is a feature exclusive to the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. With it, your phone can recognize music that is playing in the background, saving you from downloading Shazam or embarrassingly asking the barista at your local Starbucks whose smooth jazz rendition of Ode to Billie Joe you’re listening to. Until now, … Continued

Great app !!! When I select a track from history it takes me to my Amazon music which I subscribe to fully but it only gives me an option to buy the track not add to library I have to go out of the app into Amazon music and add the track seperate please sort 👍

After restarting this app it works again. I was lost without it. A must have for pixel 2 users

Logs Now Playing, opens Google Music for me. Simple and direct. Awesome companion app, except for the list of songs resets to the top every time you go back to the app. Frustrating when you have a list one hundred songs long and you're bouncing between this app and the music player. And any song with a long name gets truncated, making identification difficult.

Works without any issue, great app!, Just one feature request to add in the next update: Please support an automatic Now Playing History backup to Dropbox/Box/Google Drive (I know there is a manual Export feature, but an automatic backup to a cloud storage provider would be awesome!), Thank you!
Peter 5
Does precisely what it says on the box. Very useful, particularly with the mapping feature, for "what was that track I heard at the cafe this morning" questions

No longer updating my history since the 15th of February

Awesome feature, awesome app. And it keeps getting better. Keep it up!

Had issues with the app, maybe or not related to the map update of 20th Dec. Contacted the app email address and they wrote back within 15 minutes with a possible solution! Great service! Since map update it's not recording the music! 😐😐 Used to add all the time because I've noticed that pixel 2 is listening all the time, not just when it's idle. Gets the album art too! Tapping on a song in the list starts it! Pretty good and thank you. Done something Google forgot

This is a fantastic app. Im surprised if not disappointed Google didn't include something like it in the Pixel 2's. That said I don't see how Google could have done any better, just sorry I didn't think of it. Thanks for creating such a great app for the Pixel 2, I LOVE IT!!!
Alik 5
Great and much-needed app! Location where each song was heard would be really nice though. Update (12/30/17): Thank you so much for listening to feedback and adding the map feature! It would be convenient if I could jump to a song's location on the map from the song list, since I often want to remember where I heard a given song. (i.e. I could tap a song from my History and it would take me to where it is on the map.)

I had a slight issue trying to get the app to work, sent a support email, in under 60 seconds I received a response with possible solutions to fix it. App works perfectly now. Never seen support so fast in all my life. 10 Stars.
