For many years now, smartphone owners can recognize what is playing in seconds. The first, or at least most famous, application is Shazam, whose company was founded in 1999, but it was not until the beginning of the last decade, with the arrival of smartphones, that the “boom” hit. In other devices, such as computers, you have to look for a little more life, and in Linux we have options such as Music Radar.
