Music-identification app Shazam has gotten a lot more magical with a new feature called 'Pop-up' that can identify songs playing through your headphones. 

'Pop-up' solves one of the biggest problems of the Shazam app, which has become a useful tool for identifying both the artist and song title of a piece of music, according to The Verge.
