Identify your songs with Songie

Use this lightweight app to announce each upcoming song on your playlist

Songie is an app that tells you what song is about to start playing and who the artist is.

It uses the native text-to-speech function on your Android phone to relay this information audibly, so that the app itself doesn’t take up too much storage space. It supports a large number of music playing apps, including Google Play Music and Spotify.

It’s a pretty basic app, but it can be very handy to have running in the background when you want to know what each track is called before it plays, consequently, removing those frustrating four minutes of wracking your brain.

Check out its main features below:

  • As well as Google Play Music and Spotify, Songie supports Samsung Music, LG Music, Sony Music, Poweramp, PlayerPro, 8tracks, doubleTwist, Shuttle Music Player, Rocket Player, n7player and Rhapsody. More are being added with every update so you should be able to find a supported music player.

  • As well as announcing the name of the song you’re about to listen to, Songie displays the song title and the artist at the top of your screen. However, this function can only be seen if the screen is on and it will only fl ash up for a second.

  • The app is dominated by a massive button telling you if it is on or off. This is probably a bit excessive, but as the app does nothing else, it fills the space nicely. If you don’t need it running any more, just tap it to stop.

  • If you want to let your friends know about Songie, you can share the link to the app’s page in the Google Play store. You can do this by tapping the share icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen.

  • You need to have your phone’s text-to-speech function activated for this to work. It takes you through this in the setup, but you are able to change this manually in the Language and input section of your Settings menu, and alter your text-to-speech settings.
