Shazam has received an update, allowing it to recognize songs from third-party applications like TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube.

“You can now identify songs in apps like TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube. Simply open Shazam, tap the blue button, and switch back to the app you were using,” reads the Version 15.36 update. “Remember to turn on iCloud to keep your Shazams safe and in sync with Music Recognition in Control Center. Go to Shazam Settings > iCloud Sync.”

Conversely, Apple customers can also use the app by including it in the Control Center of their iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. In Settings, you can go to the Control Center, where you can find the built-in Music Recognition feature of the system, albeit it still uses the Shazam logo. Once selected, you can simply open the Control Center and tap the Music Recognition icon to identify the songs you want to know. This offers more convenience as you won’t have to switch between apps. 

On the other hand, you can also use the app’s “Auto Shazam” feature, allowing it to automatically identify songs while you are busy using other apps. You can activate it by touching and holding the Shazam app in the app drawer and tapping Auto Shazam. Once activated, you can switch to other apps, and it will identify any song that will play. These items will then be placed in your Library.
