Shazam wins shortcut on macOS; YouTube, Spotify Stations, and Commander One are updated

Some apps for iOS and macOS have recently been updated with news and improvements that are, of course, always very welcome. Let's see what's new:


Shazam app icon

The music discovery service purchased by Apple has earned a new keyboard shortcut on Mac so you can get it started quickly if you don't like or use the app icon in the menu bar.

So when listening to a song you want to identify, just press the S keys for Shazam to start listening.

You can customize this shortcut in the macOS settings; for that, go on System Preferences Keyboard Shortcuts and configure it any way you want.

In this update, the app also gained Turkish language support.


YouTube app icon

Google has especially endorsed channel and video recommendations in the latest YouTube update, providing even more options for users to customize what they don't want to see on the app homepage.

Among the news, YouTube has added the “Do not recommend channel” option to the videos that appear on the “Home” tab of the app; Typically, this screen displays suggestions for videos you might like, however, you may not want to see the content of a particular channel.


With the new feature, just tap the three-point button (located in the right corner below a video) to expand the menu and select the option to not receive suggestions from that channel. According to YouTube, the news is available in the app for iOS and Android and will soon come web.

In addition, the platform is adding even more information about video recommendations to its iOS app. Thus users of iPhones and iPads can view, just below the suggested videos, a box indicating who watched that content and why it is being displayed to you. Android users will also be able to see this information in a while.

Also new, now available for Google's (and soon Apple's) mobile operating system, is the option to explore related topics and videos more easily: this is done via a new bar located at the top of the homepage or just below. of a playing video, which displays several categories of videos. The new menu will also be available on the web soon.

Spotify Stations

Spotify Stations app icon

The Spotify app dedicated to radio stations was updated this week with CarPlay support. This makes it possible to control the playback of the service directly from the multimedia unit of Ma-compatible cars instead of using the iPhone.

After the app was released in January 2018, the service only landed on iOS earlier this year and is still only available in two countries: the United States and Australia. This means that the novelty cannot be accessed in Brazil and Portugal (for now). However, when Spotify increases app availability, it will certainly also be compatible with CarPlay here.

Commander one

Commander One file manager has reached its second verse with several improvements.

From now on, you can open and edit documents stored on even more online servers (such as Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, etc.) on your Mac. In addition, the user can encrypt files stored on these platforms through the app.

To match well with macOS Mojave, Eltima, the software developer, has added Dark Mode support and even more Commander One emulator customization options (similar to the MacOS Terminal utility) for more advanced users.

Commander One version 2.0 (not yet?) Has not been made available on the Mac App Store. However, you can download or purchase the “Pro” version of the software (for $ 30 individual version) on the Eltima website.
