Are you tired of frantically trying to Shazam a song playing in the background? With the latest Android 14 build, the Google Pixel series of smartphones is about to make your music discovery experience a lot easier. The built-in Now Playing feature is getting a Summary page that offers a granular look at the tunes you’ve heard.
If you’re a music lover, you’ll be excited to hear about the new ‘Summary’ tab that has been spotted in the latest Android 14 build. This new feature, as reported by 9to5Google and discovered by Kieron Quinn, provides users with a wealth of information about their listening habits. The ‘Summary’ tab is full of statistics about what you’ve been listening to, including categories for genre, artist, and frequency for songs.
The header of the ‘Summary’ tab reports your music listening habits for the last 30 days, allowing you to see how many tracks, artists, and genres you’ve listened to. This information can be incredibly useful, as it provides a comprehensive overview of your preferences and listening habits. For example, you might discover that you’ve been listening to more indie music than usual, or that you’ve been listening to a particular artist more frequently than you thought.
Moreover, the Summary tab is a valuable tool for music creators and curators. Artists can see how their songs are performing and what genres their fans enjoy the most. Curators can gain insights into what kind of music their followers enjoy and curate playlists accordingly. This feature is a win-win for both creators and listeners.
Can Other Android Devices Access Now Playing Music History?
If you’re a music lover who doesn’t own a Google Pixel smartphone, don’t worry. You can still enjoy the benefits of the Summary tab feature by side-loading the Ambient Music Mod APK onto your Android device. This means you can track your music discovery and listening habits, just like Pixel users can.
