Shazam fans can now identify songs using the app while wearing headphones, whether wired or Bluetooth. This update responds to a long-standing user request to be able to identify songs without having to remove their headphones.
A feature that has been awaited for ages
Previously, although Shazam allowed identification of songs playing in apps like TikTok, Instagram and YouTube, it could not do so if the user was wearing headphones. With this new update, just open the app and check the earphone connection with a dedicated icon to start identifying music playing around you or in apps.
The function was designed to be simple and as intuitive as possible. For example, when a user watches a video on TikTok with headphones and wants to know the title of the song used, they can simply open Shazam, start recognition and return to TikTok. After a few seconds, the song title and artist will appear in the Shazam app.
Likewise, if a user is in a cafe and wants to know what song is playing, they can now use Shazam without removing their headphones. This function will be particularly useful in environments where the user does not want to interrupt their personal listening or disturb neighbors.
Shazam has always struggled with background noise, but the app’s latest update should improve the user experience in all kinds of situations, from watching a movie to playing a video game. Competitors like Google have developed advanced music recognition capabilities, so Shazam must continue to innovate to maintain its market leadership position.
Since its acquisition by Apple in 2017, Shazam has been gradually integrated into the computer manufacturer’s ecosystem, notably by generously offering trials for Apple Music and the possibility of synchronizing Shazams directly with the in-house streaming service. The Shazam application, available for free on the App Store, can be used via the Control Center on iPhone and iPad, Siri commands, on Mac, as well as through widgets.
But the app is also available on Android, and Apple must be credited with the fact that support for this version closely follows developments on iOS. Shazam, which celebrated its 20th anniversary last summer, has more than 300 million users worldwide.
