Apple continues to improve the music recognition service Shazam, which it originally acquired back in 2018. In a new update today, Shazam for iOS should now be able to recognize even more songs …
According to the release notes for today’s update to Shazam, the app’s listening recognition technology has been updated to listen “louder” and “longer” to recognize what is playing. “Shazam is now finding more songs by trying harder, for longer. Press Shazam to try it,” says Apple.
Ideally, Shazam is able to identify the song being played within seconds, but this is not always the case. With today’s update, the Shazam application will listen for longer before giving up. This should mean that Shazam is even more useful than before.
Although the dedicated Shazam app for iOS has become more powerful over the years, Apple has also integrated Shazam technology deep into iOS itself. With the release of iOS 14.2 last year, Apple added a brand new Shazam button that can be added to the Control Center. Third-party applications are not able to integrate with the control center, so this is an advantage in that Shazam is owned by Apple.
You can download the latest version of Shazam for iPhone in the App Store for free.
