Apple makes Shazam available on almost all devices, including iPhone, iPad, Mac, MacBook, Apple Watch, HomePod, HomePod mini, and even Android.
Users can start Apples Recognize Shazam songs quickly and easily on almost all Apple devices. This means that the user will never be stuck wondering what that new song is called and how to get it. It only takes a few seconds for an iPhone, Mac or other Apple device to play a music sample and identify the song with additional information and links to purchase or play on the user’s device.
Music is vital to Apple, and the iPod was one of its first big hits with consumers after the first models of Apple computers and Macintoshes began to fade from notoriety. It was a Windows PC world, and things were looking bleak for what is now one of the world’s most successful companies. Soon after its introduction, the iPod became the most popular music player on the market, cementing Apple as a music-focused company as well as a computer manufacturer.
Shazam is Apple’s music recognition software built into the iPhone and iPad. This feature is easy to activate from an iPhone’s Control Center, but it’s also possible to use Shazam on an Apple Watch and Mac computer by installing the app. A user can ask Siri to “Shazam that song” with a variety of Apple devices, including a HomePod, iPod Touch, as well as iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Mac. With the Shazam app installed on a Mac, users can place it in the menu bar for easy access. A Shazam complication can be added to the Apple Watch to start the music recognition process with just one click. The Shazam widget for iPhone or iPad is probably the fastest of them all, matching the one-click launch of the Apple Watch but using the fastest processor to analyze the song.
Shazam for Android
Apple also makes the Shazam app available to Android users and also keeps it updated. The application is free, and since it has a direct link with Apple Music, it’s a win-win for Apple and the user. Google Assistant can also identify songs. However, the Shazam app maintains an excellent rating of almost five stars with millions of downloads, providing a better experience for many users.
Shazam does not have an app for Apple TV and does not support AirPods. However, most of these users own an iPhone, iPad, or Mac, which makes it a little redundant to include this feature on literally every product. Apple covers song recognition on every device that includes a screen, as well as the HomePod, which provides extensive coverage making it easy to identify music anytime and anywhere.
