Many of us fear that the acquisition of Shazam by Apple could lead to the closure of its service for platforms other than Apple. Luckily it has not, and Shazam wants to continue expanding its availability on all platforms where possible.
In this regard, this music theme detection platform recently have a Chrome extension, which makes it possible to detect the musical theme that is playing at the same moment, either through a video on YouTube, in an audio track uploaded to SoundCloud, in a series or movie that is being played through the Netflix platform , or in a broadcast on Twitch, etc.
The only thing necessary is that at the moment in which you want to detect the musical theme that is playing, neither close the tab nor refresh the content of the web that houses it once the detection button is pressed. Shazam.
The downside is that to access the full topic of the detected content, users will need to log into Apple Music, where in addition to the topic in question, users will also have access to “get lyrics, music videos and more with one click.”
What’s more, the extension itself is capable of showing a history of all the detected musical themes, but now, for now it does not allow users to synchronize the history detected in the extension with the history detected through the mobile application.
The bad news, as of today, and as reported 9to5Google, is that the extension does not work for all users, although on the extension page on the Chrome Web Store, there are users who indicate that they have been able to make the extension work.
According to said page, the extension came quietly at the end of last year, although it will now be a matter of whether the extension will work for all users wherever it is installed in the future.
In this regard, like other extensions for Chrome, users will be able to pin their access icon next to the Chrome omnibar. According to the aforementioned publication, the Shazam application for Mac was last updated in February 2020, so we could be facing a change in strategy by the platform for desktop platforms.

AppStore Blocked Coinbase Wallet App Update
Bitcoin exchange Coinbase has disabled the ability to send NFTs in its Coinbase Wallet iOS app following Apple’s demand for a 30% gas fee.
You might have noticed you can’t send NFTs on Coinbase Wallet iOS anymore. This is because Apple blocked our last app release until we disabled the feature. ????
— Coinbase Wallet (@CoinbaseWallet) December 1, 2022
The developers of Coinbase Wallet have stated that a new version of their application will not be released until they agree to pay 30% transaction fees through the Apple payment system.
“Apple claims that the gas required to send NFTs must be paid through their In-App Purchase system so they can receive 30% [комиссии] from the commission,” wrote Coinbase.
Coinbase representatives tried to convey to Apple that this is technically impossible, since such operations take place on the basis of the blockchain, the technology of which is not supported by the App Store payment system.
“The biggest impact of this change is on iPhone users who own NFTs. […] Apple just made it much more difficult to transfer them to other wallets and give them to friends or family,” the statement said.
Coinbase admitted that this was a mistake on Apple’s part and called for negotiations.
MetaMask co-founder and former Apple employee Dan Finley has criticized the tech giant for “abusing its monopoly.” Moreover, he stated that his company is ready to abandon the Apple ecosystem if the AppStore does not change its mind.
Samsung once again showed everyone how it should be. The company updated Android for the very budget Galaxy A01 from 2019
Samsung continues to show other market players how to update smartphones. This time, the cheapest smartphone of the company, which was released three years ago, received a new version of Android.
We are talking about the Galaxy A01 model, based on Snapdragon 439 and released with Android 10. The novelty, however, did not receive Android 13, but only Android 12 with the One UI 4.1 shell, but for such a smartphone this is still a very significant update. Usually manufacturers first of all stop supporting the most budget devices.
Interestingly, the Galaxy A01 owners in Uzbekistan were the first to receive the update.
