After you identify a song with Shazam, you can play it in an Apple Music, Deezer, Spotify or YouTube Music account. In the Shazam settings, you can connect your list of recognized songs to Apple Music or Spotify.
Many of Google’s Pixel phones include a similar Now Playing feature you can enable in the Sound & Vibration settings. Once activated, the software displays song titles on the Lock screen and creates a history list of the music playing within microphone range. (The Now Playing tool is designed for Pixel phones, but a web search reveals creative coders have adapted it for other Android phones.)

When you need emergency assistance, your phone has shortcuts to connect you. On an iPhone 8 or later, hold down the right-side button and one of the volume buttons until you see the Emergency SOS slider onscreen, and then drag the slide to call the local emergency number; if you can’t drag the slider, keep holding down the buttons until the phone automatically makes the call. In the Emergency SOS settings, you can enable the phone to make an emergency call when you press the side button five times.
Android-based phones, including Google’s Pixel and Samsung’s Galaxy models, have their own emergency-service aids. On phones with a power button, hold down that button until you see the Emergency icon and then tap it. On a phone without a power button, try swiping down on the screen to get to the Quick Settings for Emergency Mode or swiping up from the bottom to get to the Emergency Call button. Google’s free Personal Safety app for Android provides more tools for handling future emergency situations, for those who like to be prepared.
