If you’re like me, you’re always finding new music while you’re out and about. No longer are the days where you have to sing the tune over and over again, trying to remember it while you do a Google search, hoping you got the lyrics right. We use popular apps such as Google’s Sound Search, Shazam, SoundHound and these apps get the job done for us, instantly. I also don’t need to tell you that Roman Nurik’s DashClock Widget is extremely popular. Especially, with many big name apps building extension support for this lockscreen and homescreen widget.
Thanks to reddit user fodawim, we can now combine our love for DashClock and our need to discover new music all from the same widget. Sound Search for DashClcok allows you to quickly search for the song you’re currently listening to using DashClock and your favorite sound searching app. Right now Google Sound Search, Shazam Encore, SoundHound, TrackID, and musiXmatch are all supported.
It’s worth mentioning that the developer wasn’t able to pull up Google Ears (Sound Search) directly from DashClock. It will open Google Voice Search. You’ll then have to manually tap the music note that appears as if you were doing a normal Sound Search. SoundHound and Shazam open straight to searching for a song.
