I for the life of me couldn’t figure out where I heard a certain song from that didn’t have lyrics. I turned on Shazam and within seconds it found it for me! It was from The Adventure Time soundtrack which of course was on Apple Music. Love the app and integration between the two. 5 stars!

by pinchidiabla on 2021/10/20 03:56
A really good app when there’s no background noise.I made the mistake of saving all my Shazams on the Shazam app and when I reinstalled the app everything was gone.
This is a very good app. I really recommend this app to discover new music.

Vulgar language songs played

Vulgar it scares me
The right hit 40% of the time
by GraPhXLight on 2021/10/19 22:54
This app is so very unreliable and wrong that it’s hard to believe Apple is behind it. Even with songs from Apple Music this thing is way, like WAY off (for example, a late 1800s classical piece is matched to some 1990s R&B piece 😶).
Fun App

by Meessheeplee on 2021/10/19 21:47
Would be cooler if the app would run in conjunction with other apps running. For example: I’m watching an IG video with audio in background but Shazam won’t work while another app is in use (on my iPhone, at least.)
It’s fantastically wonderful

I have been using this app for years one day it stopped working, I mean at all. Not once has it been able to recognize a song for months now.

I never knew the name to some of the best song. But thanks to Shazam I know them now. Very worth getting this app.
Fix it pls
by kebria killer on 2021/10/19 15:10
Not working recently i think thats because of ios15 and its not only me all of my friends gots this problem
Great app but weak connection
by Saitama2020 on 2021/10/19 14:42
I always loved Shazam it serves as a great tool when discovering and exploring new music genres especially when you don’t know the name of the song. Just one problem, every time I try Shazamming every song it doesn’t work like at all. It’s always worked well no matter the location so bad service or internet connection is not an excuse. Yet every time I reinstall it, it starts to work again but sometimes or even most of the time it still doesn’t work. This is really becoming dumb and annoying because not only am I unable to discover music that I really begin to like and find interest in, but I don’t seem to understand why the app is now acting like this piece of junk to where it doesn’t seem to want to work anymore. Overall, great app and hopefully this is just some undiscovered bug.
Love this app
by BabykinsNadi on 2021/10/19 11:25

Not working iOS 15…songs not saving in library
by Princess Jasmine89 on 2021/10/19 07:35
Ever since I downloaded the new update, Shazam has stopped saving my songs in my song library…so I can’t reference any of the songs I’ve looked up… Unless I go into the app directly, but it doesn’t work within the control center PLEASE FIX
The best app ever

Doesn’t work
by Trags15 on 2021/10/18 23:58
After I Shazam a song, I can’t find it again. It is supposed to save my history AND sync to Spotify. Neither happens so back to SoundHound. More reliable.
Always Improving

OS15 continues with introducing new bugs
by Villagio Piras on 2021/10/18 14:05
Shazam ceased to work with the first OS 15 release; .1 release fixed the bug, .2 introduced a new one and now it no longer works again. Apple contacted; told to delete and reload app. Worked until .2 release… Not able to contact Shazam on the issue….

Hi. This app is the best. I love how you just open the app and all you have to do is press the big button and it will hear the music and it brings up the name of what the song is called. I definitely recommend this app.

Shazam is a lifesaver for me- and any other music geek on the planet! I love discovering new music, and Shazam gets it right every time💫. Can’t imagine life without it now that I’ve got it -and have had it for many years! I always take a screenshot of the song because it will play the whole song, but only through Apple Music. Shazam, I love you!❤️

it’s a great app but its currently not working
by shadaemadeline on 2021/10/17 01:05
lately my shazams haven’t been saving which makes using the app pointless, I shazam a song and click on it and when it takes me to the app, it’s not there anymore and i’ve lost a lot of music because of this reason. please fix!!!

Why Shazam is suddenly taking me to Apple instead of modify. I like Apple but I also want to have Spotify as an option and you just took it away when I read of my Shazam. I know Applebaum Shazam but still Spotify. What’s up?. What’s up?

I have survived a stroke due to a ruptured brain anyerism in 08. Music has always been my means of escape, however, my stroke was Hemmoragic on my left side. My memory + more has been affected. Without this app, I would have gone mad from trying to remember the artists and titles to all of “my “ music.👍
Love the app!

I’m truly beyond elated to have this Shazam App at my finger tips. I wanted to find the name of songs that were playing in venues or retail stores for years. Shazam is the best App that has the quickest feature with one tap of the finger, then magic happens, it tells me what song is playing. The one tap feature on the App is truly a blessing. Music is healing and the songs I Shazam are now on my song list (iTunes). Thank you to the inventor if this App, you certainly have change my life in music. 💯 😊

I love how I could have it tell me who does that song, or when two people need to settle a bet and let Shazam settle it by telling the name of that song, or who did that song. Sometime I race to see if o can remember the name of the song before Shazam says it. I love Shazam, it s a must have app for me.

BEST feature and Update ideas!
by ORIGINALVIPERLICIOUS94 on 2021/05/07 08:09
I’m so happy that Shazam’s will save for later if you don’t have service at the moment to identify a song (which you may have forgotten about by the time you get home for example). If you guys took it a step further and allowed us to save the sound clips Shazam has taken when it can’t identify a song and/or cannot connect to the internet, allow us to *trim* or cut up the clip to remove background noise/interference in an attempt to clarify the audio & up the chances of the music being identified that would be INCREDIBLE! Maybe even add a social aspect, in which there’s a board of people’s unknown song clips and others can leave comments OR fill in blanks for Title/Artist so there’s less opportunities for abuse because some people ruin nice things for everyone, then think of all the lesser known music that can finally be enjoyed by those searching for years! Then similar to an open question/answers forum site people can upvote/downvote answers, the OP can mark their query solved/found. This would increase engagement and time spent on your app since people enjoy helping others solve problems and get community validation from doing so. Like remember Yahoo Answers back in the day? I think Shazam has the perfect platform setup already and this would be a natural evolution of your current services. Thanks for reading I hope they see it!
Only one problem
by Songfreak79 on 2021/06/28 22:52
Can you guys add the ability for dark mode on iOS 12 I have an iPod touch and I want to Shazam songs it’s an older iPod touch from 2015 so it’s about seven years old now in about 2022 its 6 years old right now and I want to be able to Shazam songs and when I do I can have the little Sam list on the bottom that you can scroll up and look at to be in dark mode I’m sure it’s possible on iOS 12 I mean you made it possible on iOS 13 and my iPod touch can’t even do that and there are some apps that even on iOS 12 that have dark mode like Facebook so I mean it wouldn’t be that hard to do it on Shazam on iOS 12 on an old iPod touch just with an update in the Shazam store please that’s what make my day I hate being blasted with the song last and white when I go into the app At least make it a little darker it doesn’t have to be super dark just a little darker like a grayish dark dark mode and then I’ll be happy I mean Facebook has a gray/dark mode on iOS 12 on the iPod touch for crying out loud and the iPad doesn’t even have it on Facebook and it’s on iOS 14 actually iOS 15 now because iOS 15 is out in developer beta form and there’s still no dark mode for Shazam but there is an iOS 15 beta for Facebook WTS same with iOS 12 for Facebook how does that work can you please add 1 plz
Well Earned 5 Star!!
by DatboiMemesOnEnd on 2021/04/08 01:29
Okay, so-I happen to decide to see what songs this app recognizes by playing random songs on my TV and seeing which ones it happens to guess! First, I tried Mario Kart Menu Theme, which it guessed, then I tried Broly Vs Gogeta (Epic song, btw), which it guessed, Rip & Tear, BFG Division, Blue Sizzle, you get the point! Well, I was thinking....No way it’ll guess Learn 2 Fly’s techno theme, right!? Riiiight! Well!!! That blew up in my face because it guessed it!! At first I was skeptical, thinking, “No way this is actually it! It must be confusing it for another song, right!?” NOPE!! It actually put a name to a song I had been wishing for the possibility to have on my playlist and I found it ON ITUNES and bought it!! Not the second that happened, I *SCRAMBLED* to the app store to give this app a 5 Star review!! You legends basically just reunited my child gaming spirit with its gaming music SOULMATE!!! I cannot thank you guys enough for making an app that can actually put names to songs that nobody else seems to know the proper names of! Seriously! You guys are awesome!!! Im gonna continue to use this app so I can expand my playlist from now on! You guys have a *SPARKING* day!!! Sincerely & With Thanks, 5aiy4n-G0d
Shaquille O’Kneel down to the king, Shazam.
by K.HokamaDrama on 2021/10/07 12:32
I would like to put things into perspective by simply saying that if you are like me and have an acute fear of certain social interactions. One of those social underwear in school style nightmares is when I hear a song that just slaps my eyebrows off(in the best way possible) or that feeling you get when you hear a song that you haven’t heard since back when everyone discovered music via the radio. Each of those is a prime juicy example of how SHAZAM integrates its awesome self into your heart and phone haha I don’t want to boast too much but I have SHAZAM as a MF widget on my home screen... just saying all I do is click on the S-wait like 4 seconds-the BLAM- Shazam is all “here’s the exact song for you sir”- “would you like to add it to your playlist that you already had straight from here?”- I’m like “shhiii you already know” and it’s as simple as that folks...Shazam is a lifesaver/uniquely personalized playlist making/anxiety saving app god. If you are reading this then you have made a mistake.. you should have downloaded it first and then read all my app-praising whilst the downloadeth finished. Duh
“Shazam!”
by Rocky33Now on 2020/03/24 17:02
There used to be a time in my younger years, it was a simple matter of identifying every single piece of music played on the radio. Now we’re in the 21st Century; radios have become practically obsolete, devices for playing music media beyond number. Each device having the capacity upwards of 100,000 songs. The average person needs some help knowing every song being played in a room within hearing range. Through the past ten years or more I’ve drifted back, and forth to Shazam. As my tool for telling me the name of the song I’m listening to. I’ve always never failed to notice, whenever there’s a song I need to know something about. Someone in the room has Shazam on the cell phone to help me out. Finally after a very long absence of getting by without Shazam on my phone. I downloaded the Shazam app on my phone for a long awaited reunion. The nicest feature about Shazam, it automatically connects me to my Apple Music. Then I can add the music I so quickly get identified added to my music collection on ITunes. Download the Shazam app, and give the music collection, and knowledge base a huge lift.
Best APP Ever!
by Robert Aymond on 2019/11/08 19:21
This review is long overdue but better late than......! Shazam was one of the very first apps I ever added to my first iPhone. It was surely in the top 5 if not the top 3, & it's so useful to a music lover like me! How I ever did without it still seems crazy to me, so it must never be allowed to go away or taken from any App Store. Let's make that a law so it will be legally protected! To the developers who created Shazam, I give all my thanks & appreciation for such a truly brilliant & useful tool that you've made available for everyone to easily use without the need to learn anything besides tapping a finger. Simplicity & Brilliance! Even more impressive though, is your unending & seamless enhancement of features & capabilities, yet always keeping it's simplicity intact. I'd love to shake your hands & thank everyone who's had a hand in any part of giving the world such a great program - especially to music lovers like me, but until I can, all I can say is Thanks to all of you.

Almost Great but Still got a BUG ☹️
by Maya_DMayanBruja on 2021/07/24 22:27
I LOVE 99% of EVERYTHING about Shazam. It Records & SAVES the Music I hope to ALWAYS have. It’s been recording & saving ALL my Music, even the ones I can’t remember I saved. And all to my Email too (Which I’ve had for YEARS). I love how instant it works & how it can find Most of the songs. Yeah, it still has trouble finding My Spanish speaking Music, but I Trust Shazam will get there Eventually. Although, I regret to say, but I have the Shazam app Icon, on my Scroll down menu (on iPhone 11) & yes, it does the job. I can tap on it & Shazam will instantly start recording & recognizing the song/music being played (on/from another app). BUT…… Once the Notification is shown/pops up & goes away, I later go to my actual Shazam app & the song I KNOW I just played & wanted memory recognition from, is NO LONGER THERE. Yeah Shazam tells me the songs I shazamed for THAT DAY & the days/weeks/etc. Passed. BUT MOST of them are NO LONGER THERE. Like they simply VANISHED. PLEASE Shazam. FIX THIS BUG. I Hate how it’s beginning to Defeat the purpose of even having a Shazam if it won’t properly store my songs anymore. & Who knows how long this has been going on. I’ve probably been missing hundreds of songs that I “thought was saved” when really, they weren’t. Moments GONE☹️ Be awesome Again!!
Not dependable
by handmethefrench on 2018/09/29 03:54
This app only needs to do one thing: tell me what the name of the present song is. It’s not that difficult. Songs don’t last forever, and by the time you realize you like the song, you probably only have a few moments to capture the song with an app, as you juggle with driving your car and getting away from any background noise. Yet, this app cannot the only thing it needs to do. It struggles to load every time, before eventually the button doesn’t respond at all to the touch. If you think updating the app might make it work, you’d be wrong. Admittedly, this might not normally merit the time to draft a negative review, but there’s nothing quite so annoying as having precious few seconds to capture a song and then having your dedicated app fail at its only job. If anyone from the Shazam bureaucracy is reading this, please make whatever simplifications are necessary to this app to make it work.
Love the app, miss the global map
by memeske on 2021/05/14 08:06
Perfect app for many reason that have been stated by the many users you have. Love it and could picture a normal life without it, given my admiration and passion for music and musicians. Over the many updates, my favorite new artist and try explorer “secret weapon” was the global map navigation. Yes, it was tedious to expand at times, but this really a (admittedly skewed) idea of what any town were listening to, that could be pulled on that. Hope that map makes a come back, otherwise, superb essential app. Not sure how long ago that was...I have grown and I went to ups and downs!! Music is appeases the soul and spirit, and being able to always capture that “song”, and even do a bit of Karaoke with it...hope it leads to less wars..but also hope you are adding privacy respect to your mission. It’s a modern world and you must find a way to survive and be profitable. Just stopping by to say THANK YOU to you all AGAIN!!
Very Impressed. Amazed, really.
by DJ Kobayashi Maru on 2020/04/27 05:41
I've spent my lockdown time ripping my cd collection to FLAC, and I came across one of my electronic mix cd's from around 2002. No song listing, no CD-Text, not even a label. I spent about an hour looking through my computer files to see if I had any notes or playlists or cd-burning files that would help me identify the unfamiliar music on the disc. I tried listening to it to see if I could figure out the songs, but no luck at all. I was thinking there was no way Shazam would be even remotely helpful for this kind of stuff. I was dead wrong. Shazam nailed every single song, even the remixes. It identified one song as "The Sheriff" by Fila Brazilla, but the times didn't match up when I double checked AllMusic. My version was longer than the listed time. I did a little more research to see if there was a longer version. When there wasn't, I decided to check to see if that song ripped with extra silence at the head or tail in error on my CD. Sure enough, Shazam was right, and my disc was wrong: 30 seconds of silence at the end of the track. I am seriously stunned at what a great job Shazam did with such an eclectic disc of music. I knew it was good at the popular stuff, but most of these songs didn't have lyrics (and in some cases, melodies.) Anyway, highly recommended and highly grateful.
Thought It Was Good...But
by jordane1 on 2021/02/14 14:56
Had been using this app on and off in combination with SoundHound. One feature I like about this app is that you can “search a song” and it will save it to a history log Same As SoundHound but unfortunately this history isn’t “device transferable” unlike SoundHound and also I did I a series of searches from the control center (panel) which is a extremely useful feature that I don’t think SoundHound has but it was to my surprise after (falling default) to this method that these “searches” weren’t being saved only the ones that were searched when the app was visible on screen which as mentioned before is device specific and I can’t view on a different device 4/5 stars if this app saved history from the beginning of time as SoundHound did it would get the 5 stars as even if you logged in later after searching a series they would simply get added to you me account history with location(SoundHound) A+ App though I will say
Songs while offline
by tyraandmom on 2019/11/18 21:30
This app is very useful for finding songs you may not know the name of or new songs that you've never heard before. I only have a few problems with this app. When you shazam a song while your offline it says that it'll tell you the song when you have connection. I travel a lot and am a lover of all music genres so I have quite a majority of songs from around the world, and I might not always have wi-fi to connect to. I'm currently abroad for a wedding and my carrier doesn't support data outside of my country, so at the after party they played loads of songs I liked; I went to shazam them and waited till I got back to my hotel to open the app, and there was no sign of them. Another problem I have is Auto-Shazam. I turn it on and when I go listen to a song on a video and it doesn't react. Overall this app is useful, but there are some features that claim to work, but don't.
Special songs I like.
by Pattycakeb19 on 2020/03/26 17:04
I like to purchase music to play in my car. I do not usually want to buy full albums, but specific songs that I like. What I love about Shazam is that there may be a commercial with a song I like or a movie will feature a certain song. I may not know the correct name or who sings it. All I have do is Shazam it and there it is. I have used it so many times. My playlist for my car is unbelievable. All good songs. Not 30% or 70%, but 100% songs I like. The only bummer is that I used to be able to press purchase And it took me right to the place where I could purchase the song. I can’t do that now or if I can I do not know how. I am not interested in paying a monthly fee for all the music in the world. I want only specific songs and sometimes I might not be able to remember the name. Purchasing is the best option for me!
Shazaman! Searchin!
by allen enriquez on 2018/04/28 23:46
I’ve been using Shazam for over 10 years I barely thought about giving it a review. Not that it really needs it, because many people already know about the app globally. It’s the best app to see what artist/tv/movie/radio is playing! I remembered when I first used it when 3G was barely the next gen with it at these speeds it made it so much better to search for the details without any needs to going the the webpage or anything else it is at your fingertips just one click their is a way to say “Shazam” to start the searching. I am not to sure if it works with everything. Most o the type I find my self just using Siri to do most of my stuff while moving around. It’s a very useful app because you may what to know what movie someone is watching or a friend my want to know without interrupting the movie they can search seamlessly!
Classical and Modern Serious Music.
by Harvey Kongsgaard on 2018/08/26 17:30
I absolutely love Shazam. I also love all types of music but especially classical music and especially of the modern genre. I play keyboards and was brought up playing an antique Harmonium (a pedal reed organ) and in a short time became accomplished enough to be the Assistant Organist for a large Presbyterian Church in the Twin City suburb town of Hastings MN. We had a small seven rank but very powerful Pipe Organ which was absolutely a GAS to play full organ even tho I had to sort of wing it on the full 32 note pedal keyboard. Now getting back to my review of Shazam. I think your App comes up short in identifying classical musical tracks and albums. Most serious music lovers prefer to know the Composer first before they know who are the Artists or Artist. I do wish Shazam would provide much more Info on the Classical Music tracks (PLEASE) but thanx a whole lot for what you do do.
Older songs
by momalaaa on 2019/09/27 16:49
I’ve noticed you are using the release date of that certain song which may not be when it was originally released. I know songs released in 60’s and 70’s have this done when album is reissue. I’m having to look up correct year when making year specific play lists. Also, younger people take that as correct & won’t be argued out of it. Would it be a huge problem to add Originally Released showing that year. Shazam doesn’t always recognize older songs. Just finished watching Ken Burns series Country Music and a there were a lot of artists not recognized at all. It seems to not recognize music that’s not mainstream. I don’t tend too listen to mainstream all the time. Local groups aren’t noticed sometimes either even ef they’ve had a few albums out. Shazam not too bad keeping up with massive amount of music there is today. I just get annoyed sometimes when I can’t find the words to that dang song that’s playing right now!
When I need the right words...
by rmorgan7868 on 2021/05/06 07:23
Ever had a song stuck in your head. Regardless if it’s the latest top 40 hit or an old favorite from twenty years ago. Desperately wanting to put a little kick in your step or re-live a special moment, and you can’t because the words just are not there. The toon or the melody keeps playing over and over inside your head, but disappointed as the mood is shattered trying to piece together a few key words and make up a couple words that don’t even belong, left to hum a few bars then fizzle out. It absolutely kills the moment. Shazam affords the ability to locate that special song regardless of genre, artist, style or age of the hit. I am empowered to sing along with the tune, pull up the right lyrics and now that the frustration is over! You have helped me complete my day. Thank you Shazam!
Too many changes, too much Greed $$’s
by Colorado0so on 2019/11/28 04:26
When Shazam app first came out, IT was a fantastic product!! and you could Shazam a song on radio, in a car, on TV... and listen to it “”all”” later & see lyrics, share complete song/video with family & friends.... it was a 5-star App... after it was sold... purchased and changed & compromised by ? Apple ... ? ?new ownership.. the immediate Greed for money appeared and then extra music fees, purchases, memberships tainted this once useful App... greed, yes, greed... absolutely destroyed the once marvelous features and freedom of use and listen to songs, many saved & shared.. & CD’s purchased at retailers... Family & friends tell me they seldom use it since all the changes and restrictions and new, greedy charges imposed/required to ‘checkout a song’. I’d have to say... that’s what killed its once, highly rated popularity... Apple Music and Spotfy biggest issues I hear about...$$$’s Good luck !
I’ve Been Shazam—otized !!!!
by CeceLady on 2018/11/24 01:52
This is the bestest app ever PEOPLE! If you want to know the name of a song and artist this is the app you want. It is so accurate and on point. I always keep Shazam open in the background because I love any kind of music that sounds good to me since I don’t have a preference in music my playlist varies and this is how I use it .......when I am listening to the radio and a new song comes on and I have never heard that song....BAAM! I SHAZAM IT RIGHT AWAY!!!! when a car goes by with a good song that I like, or when I go into any business to shop and they’re playing some nice song I immediately SHAZAM IT......I love the fact that I it also finds latin music not only English music and the app is able to find both languages, and even classical music, well the list goes on. I love it and use it basically everyday. ❤️❤️❤️❤️😊
Could Be Better
by Davidmaxbaker123 on 2018/01/17 10:00
It IS very useful in finding out the track name, artist, album of a great many songs. It DOES have a few flaws. One flaw is that it occasionally gets a song completely wrong, or associates it with another artist, but that is probably less that 1 % of the time. Another quirk which I don't like is that it frequently defaults to a newer CD compilation album release for a song when what I really wanted was the original album and it's song listings. One thing I like about it is its ability to display an album title exactly how you need to label it in iTunes in order for iTunes to be able to find the album artwork. If your title is just one character off from Shazam, iTunes won't find the artwork and you have to enter it manually. Fix the glitches I described, and it's a five-star app in my book.
Not nearly as accurate or useful as claimed
by Kokubu on 2020/12/07 19:12
I really don’t get the appeal of Shazam. It usually doesn’t work. If it’s a top-40 song, it works pretty well. Anything else, and most of the time it says “No result”. Or it picks a song seemingly at random. Then if you try again, it picks a different random song. It has no concept of “I’m not sure what this is so here’s a couple guesses”. The wrong answers are never even from the right genre. It’s like talking to a smart-but-dumb computer on a 1960’s sci-fi movie. There isn’t a way to train it, either. It’s even difficult to remove an incorrectly Shazam’d song from the history — it takes about 6 taps, which is about 5 too many for something I want to do half the time I hit the Shazam button. The other case where it’s good but not useful is classical music. Its accuracy with classical music is excellent. Unfortunately, again, it snatches defeat from the jaws of victory, this time by displaying only the title and *performer* (usually conductor), but not the composer. “String quartet #7”? I guess that narrows it down but it really wasn’t what I was looking for. I wish Shazam worked well, and provided results in a useful format. Right now, it’s a novelty when it works at all. UPDATE: Now it’s started nagging me about “cloud backup” and a bunch of other useless stuff. Please stop. You have one useful feature. Make it better. Don’t go trying to make me integrate my life or some garbage like that.
Life changer
by Magicmiketooo on 2019/03/17 19:50
Whoever created this app purely genius and only for the people who really enjoy music. People can tell you that the Love music, but people who really enjoy music Will tell you how music can change their mood around if they’re happy you can make them sad, if they’re sad or upset you can make them happy. These kind of people, allows the music to get inside her heart and soul those are the true believers of sound of music. Which is a great movie by the way a.k.a.. So thank you , Shazam you’ve allowed me to download music from anywhere I go to the department store, elevator, just listen to the music in your car, I can finally do you know who’s singing that song in actually have it downloaded it onto my Music list. Finally someone who is developed this app understands what I’m saying about music. Blanco
Awesome way to Name That Tune!!
by rocknrollmamacita on 2021/06/10 05:22
I can’t remember who turned me onto this app years ago, but it’s always been a handy tool. The app is much improved since I first started using it. Most of the music I listen to is from the 60’s through the early 2000’s. Sometimes I use it if I hear something I know, but haven’t heard it in years and am drawing a blank. Other times, I will hear something on a TV show I like but have no clue who the current artist is. Shazam let’s you open the song in Apple Music and other options. You can save it, make a playlist and I’m sure some other tricks I haven’t figured out yet. It’s picked up titles within a couple seconds. In the past, If there was any dialog I would try to find a break in whatever show I was watching to find the song. Not the case anymore!
One of My Top 5 Apps
by Dallas halsey on 2019/12/02 14:36
I LOVE THIS APP. I’m always on the hunt for new music and this app helps me do that! I love how I can be out and about, hear a song, hold up my phone, and in less than five seconds I’ve learned what it is. And it can seriously hear the song even if you’re out in a public place and the music isn’t that loud! Let me give you a few examples. I was in a busy chipotle and it gave me the song title. I was in a lens crafter and could barely hear the speaker myself. And there was this song from this short 1 minute video where my friend is talking over the song and all you can hear in the background is the melody but I was like OMG WHAT IS THAT SONG and I thought there was no way the app would be able to get it because the song was so subtle but low and behold it discovered it! DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!
Great app when it works!
by Mathew71 on 2017/12/13 20:53
This app is literally part of my daily routine so I use it quite a lot. However recently I’ve been noticing when I go to play a song using Apple Music through Shazam the entire app just stops working on my iPhone. So I figured it was just my phone acting up but then I went to use it on my iPad and the exact thing happened when I went to the map and tried playing a song. Also a lot of small things about the user interface will just stop working like the back buttons and scrolling on a page. It’s to the point every time after I Shazam a song and try to either add it to Apple Music or Olay it I have to close the app and restart it. Overall I love the app just wish I could use it a bit longer without having to restart it!
Cool but there’s a flaw with the iOS implementation
by NonstopRug on 2021/02/10 21:12
When you Shazam tracks from within the actual app and have the Apple Music sync feature these songs *automatically* get added to a custom Shazam playlist in the app. Unfortunately with the new iOS features that also allow you to Shazam track do not work with this feature… and that makes no sense because Apple owns Shazam! Take for instance, asking Siri “what song is this?” Siri will accurately get the song info and also allow you to open the sign in Shazam. All standard behavior. It even shows the new track a newly shazamed song. Unfortunately the automatic playlist doesn’t recognize this as a true Shazam. Same with when you use the iOS shortcut within the shortcuts app or when you use the newly implemented control center button. All three of these methods for Shazaming do not work with the Apple music syncing feature. PLEASE FIX THIS.
Most Reliable App Ever Made!!
by Salty girl on 2019/10/11 23:45
Since day one and what seems like endless apps downloaded since apps were created, Shazam has been that constant, that rock, that reliable friend. This app has been with me throughout the years and hasn’t failed, hasn’t been stuck in some circling mode of hell or crashed. Sure, maybe it’s had some hiccups getting some songs incorrect or versions of certain songs but we all have hiccups! Shazam you have helped me be mom o’ the year and always knowing the song 😉. You didn’t stop there either- you went further with letting me sing along!! It doesn’t get better than this app. Thanks Shazam, we are super cool together! Please stay this way. Add a trivia guessing game and BOOM outta the ballpark. Stay away from bugs. Stay safe. Continue to be awesome!! Love, Mom SHAZAM ROCKS!
3.5 stars
by 12356890673Abi on 2018/08/31 04:59
The live music lyrics could be better. Like I don’t understand why it hears the lyrics and recognizes if it is an a wrong place and “catches up”, but really, it doesn’t recognize if it’s paused? Can’t even hear any music but it continues as if it does. Pointless feature. And I appreciate that it has lyrics, but some popular songs don’t. They should sync to more than one website for lyrics. The ads aren’t personalized either, and honestly I wish it was. I don’t mind a clothing ad geared towards my interests every now and then, but constantly seeing the same add for AHS Apocalypse while trying to look at lyrics for my worship songs... I keep covering it up with my hands as I read bc I don’t want those kind of frightening images in my head. Being personalized ads, even just variety would be nicer. Don’t want to see the same ad every time I Shazam a song. And auto Shazam doesn’t work that well either
Several Issues
by Proteus846 on 2017/10/06 04:44
Shazam is a very useful tool, but it does have some issues in this version. For starters, I’d like to modify Notifications Settings… but the link in the app takes me to the front page of Settings and there’s no panel for Shazam available on my new phone. Additionally, when upgrading to a new iPhone I lost access to the ad-free experience I bought into years ago with the since-depreciated Shazam Encore. I’m using the same account as before, but I have ads now… I’ve submitted a ticket and am waiting to hear back. A final complaint would be with Facebook integration. Most apps now show me a page asking to sign in with the Facebook app, which takes me there to authenticate; Shazam, on the other hand, wants me to sign in directly in the app instead of taking me to the Facebook app to do so; this is less secure, sends my data through Shazam for additional lost security, and is just not the way I want to do things. Security and privacy are important in today’s world, and Shazam needs to add simple support for Facebook’s newer secure-authentication system. Other than those issues and occasional minor bugs, Shazam works great. Aside from the emails about the top charts that I can’t seem to turn off in the app for some reason, I enjoy using Shazam and it has proven extremely helpful in identifying music on many occasions.
😁😍😃AMAZING 😃😍😁
by #StrawberryLemonade on 2019/06/27 17:41
Omg Shazam is AMAZING it works so fast and it even has the options to l’est en to the song in Apple Music and to read the lyrics and so much else! Honestly I would like to point out how hard this programming must have been. They work so hard! As for if you are thinking about getting it I recommend this to people of all ages really. There is really nothing to worry about for kids. And it is so helpful. At any time you can have it Listen to a song. I even did this when there were people talking over the music and it still worked. I recommend this app so much! It even works if ur playing songs on ur own and phone which is weird but helpful when using airplay sometimes. Very helpful. And approximate time and effort they have put into this app.
Control Panel Song Recognition Is Useless!!
by Maji16 on 2021/04/16 18:44
If I could give the Song Recognition feature in the control panel a -10, I would, I find it just that useless. When I 1st saw this I was like “wow what and awesome thing” and instantly added it to my control panel and it recognizes all of my songs. But of course there is always a “gotcha” with anything this good because even though it recognizes the song it does not link them with my Shazam library like the app and if I clear 1 of my notifications on my list all the Shazam’s are deleted, thus no song recognized or saved to add to my Apple library later. This very very very frustrating and hate this feature. My memory is bad and that’s why I use the feature and leave the songs that I Shazam in my notifications so when I have a chance I can add it to my Apple Music Library. It’s an awful waste of space and if you’re going to offer it as a extension of the Shazam make sure all of the features work like app would or it’s just a waste of space.
Reading my mind
by soundz4senses on 2019/01/24 18:40
Shazam has been around for a long time and throughout its development what’s amazing to me is how it has kept up, not only with contemporaneous music but also music from antiquity. There are other amazing apps for music out there - think radioooo - But Shazam really defines the music discovery app process. I only wish that there could be a one button or step process to acquiring the music easily. I’d happily pay a dollar for every song I’ve Shazammed. If they can figure that out a lot of money will be made and a lot of musicians and music lovers will be happy. Musicians because hopefully they’ll get paid for their efforts and music lovers because they’ll have access to the music that they have discovered with Shazam. Well done and keep up the good work.
Really Good!
by Venezuelan Melomaniac... on 2018/12/24 16:32
Nowadays there’s a bunch of apps that perform the same function as Shazam... but they’re the pioneers so I’ve remained with them without even thinking about using something else, and I’ve seen some of those others apps not finding a tune’s name while Shazam is already offering to you the option of playing it through ITunes ...isn’t that pure sweet love? I’ve even find out the name of songs that are been played live! (Of course only with high performance artist/or people using some sampling tracks a long their shows). I’m not a write-reviews-guy ... but for Shazam I decided to do it in gracefully recognition of major gift that is for a music lover to be able to identify new music everyday, anytime and anywhere for years now! 1000% recommended ! 🙏🏽❤️ Peace ya’ll!
I love this application
by Mad Mike Max on 2019/05/08 23:48
Like stated above, I love this application,,but,, and it is a BIG but, if you are trying to learn how to sing a song, hence the reason this application failed to get that 5th Star. That missing 5th Star is because when you identify a song and it has the “Lyrics” button to depress, after you tag that song. I the lyrics tend to lag a little behind the spoken/sung word(s). This short coming tends to leave one/you guessing what is to be sung next and has you from time to time playing “CATCH UP” with that song, if lyrics are unknown to you. If you could program this application to show you the next line of song lyrics at LEAST a split second before the song lyrics are sung ,, “THAT WOULD BE GREAT”, and for CERTAIN would gain you the 5th illusive Star.
Not as smart as you’d think
by Aste Spumante on 2017/11/06 01:49
Shazam (at least for me) takes a long time to open to the point where it’s possible to press the Shazam button. Then, it takes a while to recognize the song. Often, a song ends before it can do all that. What usually happens is that I hear a song, then decide in the course of listening that I want to identify it. Then, the above happens and the song ends without being identified. I feel like I’m supposed to start Shazam-ing as soon as the song starts. That doesn’t seem realistic since I need to hear at least some of the song to know that I want to know more about it. Also, it’s not as smart as a human. It seems to recognize data embedded in the song rather than the actual characteristics of the music. If you Shazam a live performance of a well-known song—say, a performance on an NPR show—it will not recognize it.
Shazam music library or knowledge of songs
by ac nicky on 2021/03/20 19:08
I have experienced that Shazam has in some cases it doesn’t recognize a song or songs, music etc for some reason. I have experienced in particular music one of my favorite music Latin music be it from the 1950s/60s/70s/80s. I am from New York, some music genres are Afo-Cuban, Mambo, Son, Guanguanco, Son Montuno etc and Shazam does not recognize some songs or music sadly. I listen to a radio station WFDU Saturdays 1pm - 6pm and they play a mixed array of the types of music, songs I am referring to, maybe if someone in the organization can listen a few Saturdays, one can get a good grasp of what is being brought attention to, it would be greatly appreciated, thank you, P.S. my compliments to the great body of work done thus far, hats off to the hard work done!
Great App
by .+*Vulpixi*+. on 2020/10/12 12:43
I’m one of those people who like figuring out what a song is called. My friend had this app, so I asked my mom for it. She said yes. I use this app frequently in the car if I want to “bookmark” a song. My favorite feature is the live lyrics. When you Shazam a song you can look at the lyrics. But not just the lyrics, the lyrics that are actually playing on the part of the song it was Shazam-ed at. I actually used this app while writing this. I also like the fact it gives you a preview of the music video. But I wish there was a button that you could watch the whole music video that synced with your music. Otherwise everything else is great. I recommend this app to all those like me who need to know what the name of!
Good for what it’s for

This app is great once you figure out what it’s for—identifying songs being played, as in on the radio or at the mall or by a roommate when the transactional cost of just asking is too high. For a long time I could never figure out why the app couldn’t recognize even simple songs I sang or hummed, officially giving up when it couldn’t even recognize my laudable rendition of Happy Birthday to You, which is, like, the most recognizable song in the world. But then a friend filled me in on the app’s actual purpose, and, upon verifying his claim through several test runs, my scorn was replaced with unabashed admiration. I find the app especially useful for classical music. Though, there was one Mendelssohn piece that it took several tries to identify…
So convenient, So clever, So revolutionary

Honestly though I garauntee every human being & definitely the better half that’s either reading reviews, reviewing their own , or is too busy using this amazing app has had to deal with those crappy moments when you hear new music you know you love but know you won’t hear again until you happen to be lucky enough to hear it again or the even crappier moments when you specifically want to hear one of those songs you heard but can’t because you don’t remember the name of it or worse yet you never end up knowing any music because you never are able to learn the music you hear and my PERSONAL least favorite.. knowing so much music but never knowing the names of them Until sazam
Thank you!

Shazam! I do not have enough thank full words for your team. I’ve been using the app for as long as I can remember, but I’ve finally decided to give back to you and post a review. First off, the free aspect is incredible. I hate to say this, but it’s such an incredible app that I’d have no problem paying for what’s free. Next, thanks to the app, I have danced and grooved much harder, because now I can find the music my heart craves! Third, I love the fact that I can prove to my husband I know more music than he does (we use Shazam to Test). Ha. I could list 100 reasons why this software seems to be some of the more radical to hit the market, but I’ll just summarize w a deep and heart-felt thank you for your passion and vision. Amazing app. Works beautifully. Many thumbs up.
Great app, but one issue.
by FireFlash9 on 2020/07/26 02:35
This app is great on pretty much every level. I used to hate having to just guess the name of a song or never remember a song again because nobody said the name. And no way was I able to tell the name of any classical music pieces. But with Shazam, all of those problems are fixed and it is easy, just the tap of a few buttons away! My one problem, is that it asks for me to sign in with my Apple id password EVERY TIME. It doesn’t matter if I signed in with it lasts time, it will ask again. The settings say it is linked to my Apple Music, so I don’t see why it would keep asking. This can get very annoying since I don’t now any way to stop it. Other than that this is a great app and I highly recommend it!
I wish I could put ZERO STARS
by Saaoyx on 2019/07/29 18:21
I do not understand how people are getting what they want with this app. I thought this app would work to find “that song” for me, guess what? It didn’t. I got this app thinking it would be great, because the reviews are fantastic. The only thing I like about this app is that it doesn’t cost wasted money (at least I can just throw it away). I don’t know about anyone else, but I believe lots of people are also getting Shazam because the app itself made it seem impressive. When I first opened Shazam, I wanted to play around with it, so I sang Happy Birthday. Who doesn’t know Happy Birthday? Apparently Shazam didn’t. Then I got confused and tried it again, it still didn’t work. I finally decided to sing my song I wanted to know the name of (I still don’t know the name of). It didn’t work. Voice recognition is very helpful and accessible, but Shazam sadly couldn’t be with that. It shows how badly great inventions like voice recognition can be used for.
Great all around music application.
by NickA1441 on 2019/01/23 05:36
The icon on this application is extremely recognizable thanks to its popularity and promotion. It has a 4.9/5 stars on the APP store and it deserves it for its simplicity. Its descreption is simple and clear and does not get much more user friendly than this as you simply push a single button and the APP listens to the song and sends it back to you. Its target audience is defined as anyone who loves music. Its stand out characteristics and content is simply how easy it is to use and how effective it gets the job done. This APP is free for all users. It is innovative in the sense that once you start up the application, all you have to see is the opening page, which is one giant button, making navigation very easy.
This is an awesome app... but mine has been glitching!
by Lysie Lou on 2018/06/23 04:39
I love this app, I’ve had it since it first came out. I like that I can link it to face book, share cool songs that I found on my face book feed or to individual friends. I can even look up the lyrics to the songs that I Shazam. However, for about a month now when ever I go to “my Shazam” to look at the the songs I discovered it kicks me out the app immediately. I have even tried signing out so I could sign back in, in the hopes that it would reset the app... that didn’t help. So I tried deleting the app and reinstalling it again. That didn’t work! So it is for this reason I’m am rating the app 2 stars. It is extremely annoying that I can’t use the app to its fullest. Especially when I enjoyed using the app the way it was intended prior to this issue. So if the developers can fix this glitch I would be happy to give this a app a 5 star rating-once again.
Fork to my Plate
by nvthree on 2018/12/02 09:06
I've been a user since 2009. If music holds any sway in your daily life, Shazam is the fork to your dinner plate. Growing a product from a true mvp to what it is today, over (?) years has to be hard. There's been versions of Shazam I've passionately hated. In hindsight, I could only hate it because was so helpful. Today, so many others use this app just like I do, to record and put name to the soundtrack of their life so they can bring that music back on demand whenever they want. For the last couple years this app has been soundly built. Its my go to for creating playlists and It's connected to my music library. Shazam is how I enhance my time with my family and friends, building the musical backdrop for the best times of my life.
THE BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO MUSIC LOVERS
by BriggsMultimedia on 2019/09/14 12:35
SHAZAM IS THE BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO MUSIC LOVERS SINCE iTunes. I listen to music much of the day. Whether I’m in my car, at home, on an aircraft, on a Caribbean Sea vessel, my music is on! What Shazam does for me is to identify music with which I’m unfamiliar in an instant. And the best feature is one I only recently “discovered!” As I heard new music, I used to run for my phone with the Shazam app to position it to pick up the audio. But I listen to so much of my music via my iPhone! I just discovered that I can simply click on Shazam while any music is playing in my phone from any source. Shazam identifies it instantly! Before the ding has finished playing from some radio station in the world, Shazam has made it possible for me to download it!!!!
Great app but weak connection
by Saitama2020 on 2021/10/19 14:42
I always loved Shazam it serves as a great tool when discovering and exploring new music genres especially when you don’t know the name of the song. Just one problem, every time I try Shazamming every song it doesn’t work like at all. It’s always worked well no matter the location so bad service or internet connection is not an excuse. Yet every time I reinstall it, it starts to work again but sometimes or even most of the time it still doesn’t work. This is really becoming dumb and annoying because not only am I unable to discover music that I really begin to like and find interest in, but I don’t seem to understand why the app is now acting like this piece of junk to where it doesn’t seem to want to work anymore. Overall, great app and hopefully this is just some undiscovered bug.
Exactly as One Would Hope!
by N3UMY3R on 2019/07/16 14:22
I loath being asked to review. I don’t mind giving my ‘star-rating,’ but anything more dissuades me. HOWEVER, the folks at Shazam deserve praise. As a music-lover and a musician this app is invaluable. It is incredibly competent and accurate at its job! Thank you folks for your brilliance in helping me identify songs in a music world that is now populated with probably the largest volume of “recorded” classic, indie, and DIY artists in the history of our civilization. Just 30 years ago the task of your app would have been daunting, however now it seems to me it should be insurmountable, yet you guys are accomplished at the task. Making my life easier and my iTunes playlist evolving and diverse. Thank you seems insufficient. Regardless, thank you!
Seriously though...
by Emmajay775 on 2018/06/23 13:21
I don’t write reviews. I don’t care that much tbh. However this app is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. Yeah I know it sounds sad. However, this app has brought me music I find just the last lyrics on. It’s fast and smooth and saves everything so I don’t have to remember it. This app has brought me music I would have never gone the extra mile to listen too. Bringing me to experiences I’ve never had. Even with no WiFi it saves what it’s hearing. It’s crazy. I was feeling down and I heard this song I used the app on a while back. I looked it up on this app and found something that is almost like personal therapy. I’ve recommended it to all my friends there’s just no beating something as convenient as this.

I for the life of me couldn’t figure out where I heard a certain song from that didn’t have lyrics. I turned on Shazam and within seconds it found it for me! It was from The Adventure Time soundtrack which of course was on Apple Music. Love the app and integration between the two. 5 stars!

This is a very good app. I really recommend this app to discover new music.

The right hit 40% of the time
by GraPhXLight on 2021/10/19 22:54
This app is so very unreliable and wrong that it’s hard to believe Apple is behind it. Even with songs from Apple Music this thing is way, like WAY off (for example, a late 1800s classical piece is matched to some 1990s R&B piece 😶).
Fun App

Would be cooler if the app would run in conjunction with other apps running. For example: I’m watching an IG video with audio in background but Shazam won’t work while another app is in use (on my iPhone, at least.)
It’s fantastically wonderful

Shazam ceased to work with the first OS 15 release; .1 release fixed the bug, .2 introduced a new one and now it no longer works again. Apple contacted; told to delete and reload app. Worked until .2 release… Not able to contact Shazam on the issue….

Hi. This app is the best. I love how you just open the app and all you have to do is press the big button and it will hear the music and it brings up the name of what the song is called. I definitely recommend this app.

Shazam is a lifesaver for me- and any other music geek on the planet! I love discovering new music, and Shazam gets it right every time💫. Can’t imagine life without it now that I’ve got it -and have had it for many years! I always take a screenshot of the song because it will play the whole song, but only through Apple Music. Shazam, I love you!❤️

by hhii its me on 2021/10/16 21:42
shazam is a scam. it never works, man i hear a song, it’s not even long. but shazam still gets it wrong. when the volume is low, shazam just doesn’t know. it only works when the volume is blasting my anger for this is everlasting.

I have survived a stroke due to a ruptured brain anyerism in 08. Music has always been my means of escape, however, my stroke was Hemmoragic on my left side. My memory + more has been affected. Without this app, I would have gone mad from trying to remember the artists and titles to all of “my “ music.👍
Love the app!
by Surouxna on 2021/10/16 20:39
The only complaint I have is some of the older music, 60s and 70s it does not recognize but other than that one of the best apps!

I’m truly beyond elated to have this Shazam App at my finger tips. I wanted to find the name of songs that were playing in venues or retail stores for years. Shazam is the best App that has the quickest feature with one tap of the finger, then magic happens, it tells me what song is playing. The one tap feature on the App is truly a blessing. Music is healing and the songs I Shazam are now on my song list (iTunes). Thank you to the inventor if this App, you certainly have change my life in music. 💯 😊

It used to be that I could tap on music and it would show the song in the music app. But no more. All of that is grayed out and nothing works. I’m also getting inconsistent results from listening to the same thing.

I love how I could have it tell me who does that song, or when two people need to settle a bet and let Shazam settle it by telling the name of that song, or who did that song. Sometime I race to see if o can remember the name of the song before Shazam says it. I love Shazam, it s a must have app for me.

BEST feature and Update ideas!
by ORIGINALVIPERLICIOUS94 on 2021/05/07 08:09
I’m so happy that Shazam’s will save for later if you don’t have service at the moment to identify a song (which you may have forgotten about by the time you get home for example). If you guys took it a step further and allowed us to save the sound clips Shazam has taken when it can’t identify a song and/or cannot connect to the internet, allow us to *trim* or cut up the clip to remove background noise/interference in an attempt to clarify the audio & up the chances of the music being identified that would be INCREDIBLE! Maybe even add a social aspect, in which there’s a board of people’s unknown song clips and others can leave comments OR fill in blanks for Title/Artist so there’s less opportunities for abuse because some people ruin nice things for everyone, then think of all the lesser known music that can finally be enjoyed by those searching for years! Then similar to an open question/answers forum site people can upvote/downvote answers, the OP can mark their query solved/found. This would increase engagement and time spent on your app since people enjoy helping others solve problems and get community validation from doing so. Like remember Yahoo Answers back in the day? I think Shazam has the perfect platform setup already and this would be a natural evolution of your current services. Thanks for reading I hope they see it!
Only one problem
by Songfreak79 on 2021/06/28 22:52
Can you guys add the ability for dark mode on iOS 12 I have an iPod touch and I want to Shazam songs it’s an older iPod touch from 2015 so it’s about seven years old now in about 2022 its 6 years old right now and I want to be able to Shazam songs and when I do I can have the little Sam list on the bottom that you can scroll up and look at to be in dark mode I’m sure it’s possible on iOS 12 I mean you made it possible on iOS 13 and my iPod touch can’t even do that and there are some apps that even on iOS 12 that have dark mode like Facebook so I mean it wouldn’t be that hard to do it on Shazam on iOS 12 on an old iPod touch just with an update in the Shazam store please that’s what make my day I hate being blasted with the song last and white when I go into the app At least make it a little darker it doesn’t have to be super dark just a little darker like a grayish dark dark mode and then I’ll be happy I mean Facebook has a gray/dark mode on iOS 12 on the iPod touch for crying out loud and the iPad doesn’t even have it on Facebook and it’s on iOS 14 actually iOS 15 now because iOS 15 is out in developer beta form and there’s still no dark mode for Shazam but there is an iOS 15 beta for Facebook WTS same with iOS 12 for Facebook how does that work can you please add 1 plz
Well Earned 5 Star!!
by DatboiMemesOnEnd on 2021/04/08 01:29
Okay, so-I happen to decide to see what songs this app recognizes by playing random songs on my TV and seeing which ones it happens to guess! First, I tried Mario Kart Menu Theme, which it guessed, then I tried Broly Vs Gogeta (Epic song, btw), which it guessed, Rip & Tear, BFG Division, Blue Sizzle, you get the point! Well, I was thinking....No way it’ll guess Learn 2 Fly’s techno theme, right!? Riiiight! Well!!! That blew up in my face because it guessed it!! At first I was skeptical, thinking, “No way this is actually it! It must be confusing it for another song, right!?” NOPE!! It actually put a name to a song I had been wishing for the possibility to have on my playlist and I found it ON ITUNES and bought it!! Not the second that happened, I *SCRAMBLED* to the app store to give this app a 5 Star review!! You legends basically just reunited my child gaming spirit with its gaming music SOULMATE!!! I cannot thank you guys enough for making an app that can actually put names to songs that nobody else seems to know the proper names of! Seriously! You guys are awesome!!! Im gonna continue to use this app so I can expand my playlist from now on! You guys have a *SPARKING* day!!! Sincerely & With Thanks, 5aiy4n-G0d
Shaquille O’Kneel down to the king, Shazam.
by K.HokamaDrama on 2021/10/07 12:32
I would like to put things into perspective by simply saying that if you are like me and have an acute fear of certain social interactions. One of those social underwear in school style nightmares is when I hear a song that just slaps my eyebrows off(in the best way possible) or that feeling you get when you hear a song that you haven’t heard since back when everyone discovered music via the radio. Each of those is a prime juicy example of how SHAZAM integrates its awesome self into your heart and phone haha I don’t want to boast too much but I have SHAZAM as a MF widget on my home screen... just saying all I do is click on the S-wait like 4 seconds-the BLAM- Shazam is all “here’s the exact song for you sir”- “would you like to add it to your playlist that you already had straight from here?”- I’m like “shhiii you already know” and it’s as simple as that folks...Shazam is a lifesaver/uniquely personalized playlist making/anxiety saving app god. If you are reading this then you have made a mistake.. you should have downloaded it first and then read all my app-praising whilst the downloadeth finished. Duh
“Shazam!”
by Rocky33Now on 2020/03/24 17:02
There used to be a time in my younger years, it was a simple matter of identifying every single piece of music played on the radio. Now we’re in the 21st Century; radios have become practically obsolete, devices for playing music media beyond number. Each device having the capacity upwards of 100,000 songs. The average person needs some help knowing every song being played in a room within hearing range. Through the past ten years or more I’ve drifted back, and forth to Shazam. As my tool for telling me the name of the song I’m listening to. I’ve always never failed to notice, whenever there’s a song I need to know something about. Someone in the room has Shazam on the cell phone to help me out. Finally after a very long absence of getting by without Shazam on my phone. I downloaded the Shazam app on my phone for a long awaited reunion. The nicest feature about Shazam, it automatically connects me to my Apple Music. Then I can add the music I so quickly get identified added to my music collection on ITunes. Download the Shazam app, and give the music collection, and knowledge base a huge lift.
Best APP Ever!
by Robert Aymond on 2019/11/08 19:21
This review is long overdue but better late than......! Shazam was one of the very first apps I ever added to my first iPhone. It was surely in the top 5 if not the top 3, & it's so useful to a music lover like me! How I ever did without it still seems crazy to me, so it must never be allowed to go away or taken from any App Store. Let's make that a law so it will be legally protected! To the developers who created Shazam, I give all my thanks & appreciation for such a truly brilliant & useful tool that you've made available for everyone to easily use without the need to learn anything besides tapping a finger. Simplicity & Brilliance! Even more impressive though, is your unending & seamless enhancement of features & capabilities, yet always keeping it's simplicity intact. I'd love to shake your hands & thank everyone who's had a hand in any part of giving the world such a great program - especially to music lovers like me, but until I can, all I can say is Thanks to all of you.

Almost Great but Still got a BUG ☹️
by Maya_DMayanBruja on 2021/07/24 22:27
I LOVE 99% of EVERYTHING about Shazam. It Records & SAVES the Music I hope to ALWAYS have. It’s been recording & saving ALL my Music, even the ones I can’t remember I saved. And all to my Email too (Which I’ve had for YEARS). I love how instant it works & how it can find Most of the songs. Yeah, it still has trouble finding My Spanish speaking Music, but I Trust Shazam will get there Eventually. Although, I regret to say, but I have the Shazam app Icon, on my Scroll down menu (on iPhone 11) & yes, it does the job. I can tap on it & Shazam will instantly start recording & recognizing the song/music being played (on/from another app). BUT…… Once the Notification is shown/pops up & goes away, I later go to my actual Shazam app & the song I KNOW I just played & wanted memory recognition from, is NO LONGER THERE. Yeah Shazam tells me the songs I shazamed for THAT DAY & the days/weeks/etc. Passed. BUT MOST of them are NO LONGER THERE. Like they simply VANISHED. PLEASE Shazam. FIX THIS BUG. I Hate how it’s beginning to Defeat the purpose of even having a Shazam if it won’t properly store my songs anymore. & Who knows how long this has been going on. I’ve probably been missing hundreds of songs that I “thought was saved” when really, they weren’t. Moments GONE☹️ Be awesome Again!!
Not dependable
by handmethefrench on 2018/09/29 03:54
This app only needs to do one thing: tell me what the name of the present song is. It’s not that difficult. Songs don’t last forever, and by the time you realize you like the song, you probably only have a few moments to capture the song with an app, as you juggle with driving your car and getting away from any background noise. Yet, this app cannot the only thing it needs to do. It struggles to load every time, before eventually the button doesn’t respond at all to the touch. If you think updating the app might make it work, you’d be wrong. Admittedly, this might not normally merit the time to draft a negative review, but there’s nothing quite so annoying as having precious few seconds to capture a song and then having your dedicated app fail at its only job. If anyone from the Shazam bureaucracy is reading this, please make whatever simplifications are necessary to this app to make it work.
Love the app, miss the global map
by memeske on 2021/05/14 08:06
Perfect app for many reason that have been stated by the many users you have. Love it and could picture a normal life without it, given my admiration and passion for music and musicians. Over the many updates, my favorite new artist and try explorer “secret weapon” was the global map navigation. Yes, it was tedious to expand at times, but this really a (admittedly skewed) idea of what any town were listening to, that could be pulled on that. Hope that map makes a come back, otherwise, superb essential app. Not sure how long ago that was...I have grown and I went to ups and downs!! Music is appeases the soul and spirit, and being able to always capture that “song”, and even do a bit of Karaoke with it...hope it leads to less wars..but also hope you are adding privacy respect to your mission. It’s a modern world and you must find a way to survive and be profitable. Just stopping by to say THANK YOU to you all AGAIN!!
Very Impressed. Amazed, really.
by DJ Kobayashi Maru on 2020/04/27 05:41
I've spent my lockdown time ripping my cd collection to FLAC, and I came across one of my electronic mix cd's from around 2002. No song listing, no CD-Text, not even a label. I spent about an hour looking through my computer files to see if I had any notes or playlists or cd-burning files that would help me identify the unfamiliar music on the disc. I tried listening to it to see if I could figure out the songs, but no luck at all. I was thinking there was no way Shazam would be even remotely helpful for this kind of stuff. I was dead wrong. Shazam nailed every single song, even the remixes. It identified one song as "The Sheriff" by Fila Brazilla, but the times didn't match up when I double checked AllMusic. My version was longer than the listed time. I did a little more research to see if there was a longer version. When there wasn't, I decided to check to see if that song ripped with extra silence at the head or tail in error on my CD. Sure enough, Shazam was right, and my disc was wrong: 30 seconds of silence at the end of the track. I am seriously stunned at what a great job Shazam did with such an eclectic disc of music. I knew it was good at the popular stuff, but most of these songs didn't have lyrics (and in some cases, melodies.) Anyway, highly recommended and highly grateful.
Thought It Was Good...But
by jordane1 on 2021/02/14 14:56
Had been using this app on and off in combination with SoundHound. One feature I like about this app is that you can “search a song” and it will save it to a history log Same As SoundHound but unfortunately this history isn’t “device transferable” unlike SoundHound and also I did I a series of searches from the control center (panel) which is a extremely useful feature that I don’t think SoundHound has but it was to my surprise after (falling default) to this method that these “searches” weren’t being saved only the ones that were searched when the app was visible on screen which as mentioned before is device specific and I can’t view on a different device 4/5 stars if this app saved history from the beginning of time as SoundHound did it would get the 5 stars as even if you logged in later after searching a series they would simply get added to you me account history with location(SoundHound) A+ App though I will say
Songs while offline
by tyraandmom on 2019/11/18 21:30
This app is very useful for finding songs you may not know the name of or new songs that you've never heard before. I only have a few problems with this app. When you shazam a song while your offline it says that it'll tell you the song when you have connection. I travel a lot and am a lover of all music genres so I have quite a majority of songs from around the world, and I might not always have wi-fi to connect to. I'm currently abroad for a wedding and my carrier doesn't support data outside of my country, so at the after party they played loads of songs I liked; I went to shazam them and waited till I got back to my hotel to open the app, and there was no sign of them. Another problem I have is Auto-Shazam. I turn it on and when I go listen to a song on a video and it doesn't react. Overall this app is useful, but there are some features that claim to work, but don't.
Special songs I like.
by Pattycakeb19 on 2020/03/26 17:04
I like to purchase music to play in my car. I do not usually want to buy full albums, but specific songs that I like. What I love about Shazam is that there may be a commercial with a song I like or a movie will feature a certain song. I may not know the correct name or who sings it. All I have do is Shazam it and there it is. I have used it so many times. My playlist for my car is unbelievable. All good songs. Not 30% or 70%, but 100% songs I like. The only bummer is that I used to be able to press purchase And it took me right to the place where I could purchase the song. I can’t do that now or if I can I do not know how. I am not interested in paying a monthly fee for all the music in the world. I want only specific songs and sometimes I might not be able to remember the name. Purchasing is the best option for me!
Shazaman! Searchin!
by allen enriquez on 2018/04/28 23:46
I’ve been using Shazam for over 10 years I barely thought about giving it a review. Not that it really needs it, because many people already know about the app globally. It’s the best app to see what artist/tv/movie/radio is playing! I remembered when I first used it when 3G was barely the next gen with it at these speeds it made it so much better to search for the details without any needs to going the the webpage or anything else it is at your fingertips just one click their is a way to say “Shazam” to start the searching. I am not to sure if it works with everything. Most o the type I find my self just using Siri to do most of my stuff while moving around. It’s a very useful app because you may what to know what movie someone is watching or a friend my want to know without interrupting the movie they can search seamlessly!
Classical and Modern Serious Music.
by Harvey Kongsgaard on 2018/08/26 17:30
I absolutely love Shazam. I also love all types of music but especially classical music and especially of the modern genre. I play keyboards and was brought up playing an antique Harmonium (a pedal reed organ) and in a short time became accomplished enough to be the Assistant Organist for a large Presbyterian Church in the Twin City suburb town of Hastings MN. We had a small seven rank but very powerful Pipe Organ which was absolutely a GAS to play full organ even tho I had to sort of wing it on the full 32 note pedal keyboard. Now getting back to my review of Shazam. I think your App comes up short in identifying classical musical tracks and albums. Most serious music lovers prefer to know the Composer first before they know who are the Artists or Artist. I do wish Shazam would provide much more Info on the Classical Music tracks (PLEASE) but thanx a whole lot for what you do do.
Older songs
by momalaaa on 2019/09/27 16:49
I’ve noticed you are using the release date of that certain song which may not be when it was originally released. I know songs released in 60’s and 70’s have this done when album is reissue. I’m having to look up correct year when making year specific play lists. Also, younger people take that as correct & won’t be argued out of it. Would it be a huge problem to add Originally Released showing that year. Shazam doesn’t always recognize older songs. Just finished watching Ken Burns series Country Music and a there were a lot of artists not recognized at all. It seems to not recognize music that’s not mainstream. I don’t tend too listen to mainstream all the time. Local groups aren’t noticed sometimes either even ef they’ve had a few albums out. Shazam not too bad keeping up with massive amount of music there is today. I just get annoyed sometimes when I can’t find the words to that dang song that’s playing right now!
When I need the right words...
by rmorgan7868 on 2021/05/06 07:23
Ever had a song stuck in your head. Regardless if it’s the latest top 40 hit or an old favorite from twenty years ago. Desperately wanting to put a little kick in your step or re-live a special moment, and you can’t because the words just are not there. The toon or the melody keeps playing over and over inside your head, but disappointed as the mood is shattered trying to piece together a few key words and make up a couple words that don’t even belong, left to hum a few bars then fizzle out. It absolutely kills the moment. Shazam affords the ability to locate that special song regardless of genre, artist, style or age of the hit. I am empowered to sing along with the tune, pull up the right lyrics and now that the frustration is over! You have helped me complete my day. Thank you Shazam!
Too many changes, too much Greed $$’s
by Colorado0so on 2019/11/28 04:26
When Shazam app first came out, IT was a fantastic product!! and you could Shazam a song on radio, in a car, on TV... and listen to it “”all”” later & see lyrics, share complete song/video with family & friends.... it was a 5-star App... after it was sold... purchased and changed & compromised by ? Apple ... ? ?new ownership.. the immediate Greed for money appeared and then extra music fees, purchases, memberships tainted this once useful App... greed, yes, greed... absolutely destroyed the once marvelous features and freedom of use and listen to songs, many saved & shared.. & CD’s purchased at retailers... Family & friends tell me they seldom use it since all the changes and restrictions and new, greedy charges imposed/required to ‘checkout a song’. I’d have to say... that’s what killed its once, highly rated popularity... Apple Music and Spotfy biggest issues I hear about...$$$’s Good luck !
I’ve Been Shazam—otized !!!!
by CeceLady on 2018/11/24 01:52
This is the bestest app ever PEOPLE! If you want to know the name of a song and artist this is the app you want. It is so accurate and on point. I always keep Shazam open in the background because I love any kind of music that sounds good to me since I don’t have a preference in music my playlist varies and this is how I use it .......when I am listening to the radio and a new song comes on and I have never heard that song....BAAM! I SHAZAM IT RIGHT AWAY!!!! when a car goes by with a good song that I like, or when I go into any business to shop and they’re playing some nice song I immediately SHAZAM IT......I love the fact that I it also finds latin music not only English music and the app is able to find both languages, and even classical music, well the list goes on. I love it and use it basically everyday. ❤️❤️❤️❤️😊
Could Be Better
by Davidmaxbaker123 on 2018/01/17 10:00
It IS very useful in finding out the track name, artist, album of a great many songs. It DOES have a few flaws. One flaw is that it occasionally gets a song completely wrong, or associates it with another artist, but that is probably less that 1 % of the time. Another quirk which I don't like is that it frequently defaults to a newer CD compilation album release for a song when what I really wanted was the original album and it's song listings. One thing I like about it is its ability to display an album title exactly how you need to label it in iTunes in order for iTunes to be able to find the album artwork. If your title is just one character off from Shazam, iTunes won't find the artwork and you have to enter it manually. Fix the glitches I described, and it's a five-star app in my book.
Not nearly as accurate or useful as claimed
by Kokubu on 2020/12/07 19:12
I really don’t get the appeal of Shazam. It usually doesn’t work. If it’s a top-40 song, it works pretty well. Anything else, and most of the time it says “No result”. Or it picks a song seemingly at random. Then if you try again, it picks a different random song. It has no concept of “I’m not sure what this is so here’s a couple guesses”. The wrong answers are never even from the right genre. It’s like talking to a smart-but-dumb computer on a 1960’s sci-fi movie. There isn’t a way to train it, either. It’s even difficult to remove an incorrectly Shazam’d song from the history — it takes about 6 taps, which is about 5 too many for something I want to do half the time I hit the Shazam button. The other case where it’s good but not useful is classical music. Its accuracy with classical music is excellent. Unfortunately, again, it snatches defeat from the jaws of victory, this time by displaying only the title and *performer* (usually conductor), but not the composer. “String quartet #7”? I guess that narrows it down but it really wasn’t what I was looking for. I wish Shazam worked well, and provided results in a useful format. Right now, it’s a novelty when it works at all. UPDATE: Now it’s started nagging me about “cloud backup” and a bunch of other useless stuff. Please stop. You have one useful feature. Make it better. Don’t go trying to make me integrate my life or some garbage like that.
Life changer
by Magicmiketooo on 2019/03/17 19:50
Whoever created this app purely genius and only for the people who really enjoy music. People can tell you that the Love music, but people who really enjoy music Will tell you how music can change their mood around if they’re happy you can make them sad, if they’re sad or upset you can make them happy. These kind of people, allows the music to get inside her heart and soul those are the true believers of sound of music. Which is a great movie by the way a.k.a.. So thank you , Shazam you’ve allowed me to download music from anywhere I go to the department store, elevator, just listen to the music in your car, I can finally do you know who’s singing that song in actually have it downloaded it onto my Music list. Finally someone who is developed this app understands what I’m saying about music. Blanco
Awesome way to Name That Tune!!

I can’t remember who turned me onto this app years ago, but it’s always been a handy tool. The app is much improved since I first started using it. Most of the music I listen to is from the 60’s through the early 2000’s. Sometimes I use it if I hear something I know, but haven’t heard it in years and am drawing a blank. Other times, I will hear something on a TV show I like but have no clue who the current artist is. Shazam let’s you open the song in Apple Music and other options. You can save it, make a playlist and I’m sure some other tricks I haven’t figured out yet. It’s picked up titles within a couple seconds. In the past, If there was any dialog I would try to find a break in whatever show I was watching to find the song. Not the case anymore!
One of My Top 5 Apps
by Dallas halsey on 2019/12/02 14:36
I LOVE THIS APP. I’m always on the hunt for new music and this app helps me do that! I love how I can be out and about, hear a song, hold up my phone, and in less than five seconds I’ve learned what it is. And it can seriously hear the song even if you’re out in a public place and the music isn’t that loud! Let me give you a few examples. I was in a busy chipotle and it gave me the song title. I was in a lens crafter and could barely hear the speaker myself. And there was this song from this short 1 minute video where my friend is talking over the song and all you can hear in the background is the melody but I was like OMG WHAT IS THAT SONG and I thought there was no way the app would be able to get it because the song was so subtle but low and behold it discovered it! DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!
Great app when it works!
by Mathew71 on 2017/12/13 20:53
This app is literally part of my daily routine so I use it quite a lot. However recently I’ve been noticing when I go to play a song using Apple Music through Shazam the entire app just stops working on my iPhone. So I figured it was just my phone acting up but then I went to use it on my iPad and the exact thing happened when I went to the map and tried playing a song. Also a lot of small things about the user interface will just stop working like the back buttons and scrolling on a page. It’s to the point every time after I Shazam a song and try to either add it to Apple Music or Olay it I have to close the app and restart it. Overall I love the app just wish I could use it a bit longer without having to restart it!
Cool but there’s a flaw with the iOS implementation
by NonstopRug on 2021/02/10 21:12
When you Shazam tracks from within the actual app and have the Apple Music sync feature these songs *automatically* get added to a custom Shazam playlist in the app. Unfortunately with the new iOS features that also allow you to Shazam track do not work with this feature… and that makes no sense because Apple owns Shazam! Take for instance, asking Siri “what song is this?” Siri will accurately get the song info and also allow you to open the sign in Shazam. All standard behavior. It even shows the new track a newly shazamed song. Unfortunately the automatic playlist doesn’t recognize this as a true Shazam. Same with when you use the iOS shortcut within the shortcuts app or when you use the newly implemented control center button. All three of these methods for Shazaming do not work with the Apple music syncing feature. PLEASE FIX THIS.
Most Reliable App Ever Made!!
by Salty girl on 2019/10/11 23:45
Since day one and what seems like endless apps downloaded since apps were created, Shazam has been that constant, that rock, that reliable friend. This app has been with me throughout the years and hasn’t failed, hasn’t been stuck in some circling mode of hell or crashed. Sure, maybe it’s had some hiccups getting some songs incorrect or versions of certain songs but we all have hiccups! Shazam you have helped me be mom o’ the year and always knowing the song 😉. You didn’t stop there either- you went further with letting me sing along!! It doesn’t get better than this app. Thanks Shazam, we are super cool together! Please stay this way. Add a trivia guessing game and BOOM outta the ballpark. Stay away from bugs. Stay safe. Continue to be awesome!! Love, Mom SHAZAM ROCKS!
3.5 stars
by 12356890673Abi on 2018/08/31 04:59
The live music lyrics could be better. Like I don’t understand why it hears the lyrics and recognizes if it is an a wrong place and “catches up”, but really, it doesn’t recognize if it’s paused? Can’t even hear any music but it continues as if it does. Pointless feature. And I appreciate that it has lyrics, but some popular songs don’t. They should sync to more than one website for lyrics. The ads aren’t personalized either, and honestly I wish it was. I don’t mind a clothing ad geared towards my interests every now and then, but constantly seeing the same add for AHS Apocalypse while trying to look at lyrics for my worship songs... I keep covering it up with my hands as I read bc I don’t want those kind of frightening images in my head. Being personalized ads, even just variety would be nicer. Don’t want to see the same ad every time I Shazam a song. And auto Shazam doesn’t work that well either
Several Issues
by Proteus846 on 2017/10/06 04:44
Shazam is a very useful tool, but it does have some issues in this version. For starters, I’d like to modify Notifications Settings… but the link in the app takes me to the front page of Settings and there’s no panel for Shazam available on my new phone. Additionally, when upgrading to a new iPhone I lost access to the ad-free experience I bought into years ago with the since-depreciated Shazam Encore. I’m using the same account as before, but I have ads now… I’ve submitted a ticket and am waiting to hear back. A final complaint would be with Facebook integration. Most apps now show me a page asking to sign in with the Facebook app, which takes me there to authenticate; Shazam, on the other hand, wants me to sign in directly in the app instead of taking me to the Facebook app to do so; this is less secure, sends my data through Shazam for additional lost security, and is just not the way I want to do things. Security and privacy are important in today’s world, and Shazam needs to add simple support for Facebook’s newer secure-authentication system. Other than those issues and occasional minor bugs, Shazam works great. Aside from the emails about the top charts that I can’t seem to turn off in the app for some reason, I enjoy using Shazam and it has proven extremely helpful in identifying music on many occasions.
😁😍😃AMAZING 😃😍😁
by #StrawberryLemonade on 2019/06/27 17:41
Omg Shazam is AMAZING it works so fast and it even has the options to l’est en to the song in Apple Music and to read the lyrics and so much else! Honestly I would like to point out how hard this programming must have been. They work so hard! As for if you are thinking about getting it I recommend this to people of all ages really. There is really nothing to worry about for kids. And it is so helpful. At any time you can have it Listen to a song. I even did this when there were people talking over the music and it still worked. I recommend this app so much! It even works if ur playing songs on ur own and phone which is weird but helpful when using airplay sometimes. Very helpful. And approximate time and effort they have put into this app.
Control Panel Song Recognition Is Useless!!
by Maji16 on 2021/04/16 18:44
If I could give the Song Recognition feature in the control panel a -10, I would, I find it just that useless. When I 1st saw this I was like “wow what and awesome thing” and instantly added it to my control panel and it recognizes all of my songs. But of course there is always a “gotcha” with anything this good because even though it recognizes the song it does not link them with my Shazam library like the app and if I clear 1 of my notifications on my list all the Shazam’s are deleted, thus no song recognized or saved to add to my Apple library later. This very very very frustrating and hate this feature. My memory is bad and that’s why I use the feature and leave the songs that I Shazam in my notifications so when I have a chance I can add it to my Apple Music Library. It’s an awful waste of space and if you’re going to offer it as a extension of the Shazam make sure all of the features work like app would or it’s just a waste of space.
Reading my mind
by soundz4senses on 2019/01/24 18:40
Shazam has been around for a long time and throughout its development what’s amazing to me is how it has kept up, not only with contemporaneous music but also music from antiquity. There are other amazing apps for music out there - think radioooo - But Shazam really defines the music discovery app process. I only wish that there could be a one button or step process to acquiring the music easily. I’d happily pay a dollar for every song I’ve Shazammed. If they can figure that out a lot of money will be made and a lot of musicians and music lovers will be happy. Musicians because hopefully they’ll get paid for their efforts and music lovers because they’ll have access to the music that they have discovered with Shazam. Well done and keep up the good work.
Really Good!
by Venezuelan Melomaniac... on 2018/12/24 16:32
Nowadays there’s a bunch of apps that perform the same function as Shazam... but they’re the pioneers so I’ve remained with them without even thinking about using something else, and I’ve seen some of those others apps not finding a tune’s name while Shazam is already offering to you the option of playing it through ITunes ...isn’t that pure sweet love? I’ve even find out the name of songs that are been played live! (Of course only with high performance artist/or people using some sampling tracks a long their shows). I’m not a write-reviews-guy ... but for Shazam I decided to do it in gracefully recognition of major gift that is for a music lover to be able to identify new music everyday, anytime and anywhere for years now! 1000% recommended ! 🙏🏽❤️ Peace ya’ll!
I love this application
by Mad Mike Max on 2019/05/08 23:48
Like stated above, I love this application,,but,, and it is a BIG but, if you are trying to learn how to sing a song, hence the reason this application failed to get that 5th Star. That missing 5th Star is because when you identify a song and it has the “Lyrics” button to depress, after you tag that song. I the lyrics tend to lag a little behind the spoken/sung word(s). This short coming tends to leave one/you guessing what is to be sung next and has you from time to time playing “CATCH UP” with that song, if lyrics are unknown to you. If you could program this application to show you the next line of song lyrics at LEAST a split second before the song lyrics are sung ,, “THAT WOULD BE GREAT”, and for CERTAIN would gain you the 5th illusive Star.
Not as smart as you’d think
by Aste Spumante on 2017/11/06 01:49
Shazam (at least for me) takes a long time to open to the point where it’s possible to press the Shazam button. Then, it takes a while to recognize the song. Often, a song ends before it can do all that. What usually happens is that I hear a song, then decide in the course of listening that I want to identify it. Then, the above happens and the song ends without being identified. I feel like I’m supposed to start Shazam-ing as soon as the song starts. That doesn’t seem realistic since I need to hear at least some of the song to know that I want to know more about it. Also, it’s not as smart as a human. It seems to recognize data embedded in the song rather than the actual characteristics of the music. If you Shazam a live performance of a well-known song—say, a performance on an NPR show—it will not recognize it.
Shazam music library or knowledge of songs
by ac nicky on 2021/03/20 19:08
I have experienced that Shazam has in some cases it doesn’t recognize a song or songs, music etc for some reason. I have experienced in particular music one of my favorite music Latin music be it from the 1950s/60s/70s/80s. I am from New York, some music genres are Afo-Cuban, Mambo, Son, Guanguanco, Son Montuno etc and Shazam does not recognize some songs or music sadly. I listen to a radio station WFDU Saturdays 1pm - 6pm and they play a mixed array of the types of music, songs I am referring to, maybe if someone in the organization can listen a few Saturdays, one can get a good grasp of what is being brought attention to, it would be greatly appreciated, thank you, P.S. my compliments to the great body of work done thus far, hats off to the hard work done!
Great App
by .+*Vulpixi*+. on 2020/10/12 12:43
I’m one of those people who like figuring out what a song is called. My friend had this app, so I asked my mom for it. She said yes. I use this app frequently in the car if I want to “bookmark” a song. My favorite feature is the live lyrics. When you Shazam a song you can look at the lyrics. But not just the lyrics, the lyrics that are actually playing on the part of the song it was Shazam-ed at. I actually used this app while writing this. I also like the fact it gives you a preview of the music video. But I wish there was a button that you could watch the whole music video that synced with your music. Otherwise everything else is great. I recommend this app to all those like me who need to know what the name of!
Good for what it’s for
by archon95 on 2021/09/10 16:49
This app is great once you figure out what it’s for—identifying songs being played, as in on the radio or at the mall or by a roommate when the transactional cost of just asking is too high. For a long time I could never figure out why the app couldn’t recognize even simple songs I sang or hummed, officially giving up when it couldn’t even recognize my laudable rendition of Happy Birthday to You, which is, like, the most recognizable song in the world. But then a friend filled me in on the app’s actual purpose, and, upon verifying his claim through several test runs, my scorn was replaced with unabashed admiration. I find the app especially useful for classical music. Though, there was one Mendelssohn piece that it took several tries to identify…
So convenient, So clever, So revolutionary
by laceyjane19 on 2021/06/26 08:59
Honestly though I garauntee every human being & definitely the better half that’s either reading reviews, reviewing their own , or is too busy using this amazing app has had to deal with those crappy moments when you hear new music you know you love but know you won’t hear again until you happen to be lucky enough to hear it again or the even crappier moments when you specifically want to hear one of those songs you heard but can’t because you don’t remember the name of it or worse yet you never end up knowing any music because you never are able to learn the music you hear and my PERSONAL least favorite.. knowing so much music but never knowing the names of them Until sazam
Thank you!
by Digital Learning Specialist on 2018/06/19 02:17
Shazam! I do not have enough thank full words for your team. I’ve been using the app for as long as I can remember, but I’ve finally decided to give back to you and post a review. First off, the free aspect is incredible. I hate to say this, but it’s such an incredible app that I’d have no problem paying for what’s free. Next, thanks to the app, I have danced and grooved much harder, because now I can find the music my heart craves! Third, I love the fact that I can prove to my husband I know more music than he does (we use Shazam to Test). Ha. I could list 100 reasons why this software seems to be some of the more radical to hit the market, but I’ll just summarize w a deep and heart-felt thank you for your passion and vision. Amazing app. Works beautifully. Many thumbs up.
Great app, but one issue.
by FireFlash9 on 2020/07/26 02:35
This app is great on pretty much every level. I used to hate having to just guess the name of a song or never remember a song again because nobody said the name. And no way was I able to tell the name of any classical music pieces. But with Shazam, all of those problems are fixed and it is easy, just the tap of a few buttons away! My one problem, is that it asks for me to sign in with my Apple id password EVERY TIME. It doesn’t matter if I signed in with it lasts time, it will ask again. The settings say it is linked to my Apple Music, so I don’t see why it would keep asking. This can get very annoying since I don’t now any way to stop it. Other than that this is a great app and I highly recommend it!
I wish I could put ZERO STARS
by Saaoyx on 2019/07/29 18:21
I do not understand how people are getting what they want with this app. I thought this app would work to find “that song” for me, guess what? It didn’t. I got this app thinking it would be great, because the reviews are fantastic. The only thing I like about this app is that it doesn’t cost wasted money (at least I can just throw it away). I don’t know about anyone else, but I believe lots of people are also getting Shazam because the app itself made it seem impressive. When I first opened Shazam, I wanted to play around with it, so I sang Happy Birthday. Who doesn’t know Happy Birthday? Apparently Shazam didn’t. Then I got confused and tried it again, it still didn’t work. I finally decided to sing my song I wanted to know the name of (I still don’t know the name of). It didn’t work. Voice recognition is very helpful and accessible, but Shazam sadly couldn’t be with that. It shows how badly great inventions like voice recognition can be used for.
Great all around music application.
by NickA1441 on 2019/01/23 05:36
The icon on this application is extremely recognizable thanks to its popularity and promotion. It has a 4.9/5 stars on the APP store and it deserves it for its simplicity. Its descreption is simple and clear and does not get much more user friendly than this as you simply push a single button and the APP listens to the song and sends it back to you. Its target audience is defined as anyone who loves music. Its stand out characteristics and content is simply how easy it is to use and how effective it gets the job done. This APP is free for all users. It is innovative in the sense that once you start up the application, all you have to see is the opening page, which is one giant button, making navigation very easy.
This is an awesome app... but mine has been glitching!
by Lysie Lou on 2018/06/23 04:39
I love this app, I’ve had it since it first came out. I like that I can link it to face book, share cool songs that I found on my face book feed or to individual friends. I can even look up the lyrics to the songs that I Shazam. However, for about a month now when ever I go to “my Shazam” to look at the the songs I discovered it kicks me out the app immediately. I have even tried signing out so I could sign back in, in the hopes that it would reset the app... that didn’t help. So I tried deleting the app and reinstalling it again. That didn’t work! So it is for this reason I’m am rating the app 2 stars. It is extremely annoying that I can’t use the app to its fullest. Especially when I enjoyed using the app the way it was intended prior to this issue. So if the developers can fix this glitch I would be happy to give this a app a 5 star rating-once again.
Fork to my Plate
by nvthree on 2018/12/02 09:06
I've been a user since 2009. If music holds any sway in your daily life, Shazam is the fork to your dinner plate. Growing a product from a true mvp to what it is today, over (?) years has to be hard. There's been versions of Shazam I've passionately hated. In hindsight, I could only hate it because was so helpful. Today, so many others use this app just like I do, to record and put name to the soundtrack of their life so they can bring that music back on demand whenever they want. For the last couple years this app has been soundly built. Its my go to for creating playlists and It's connected to my music library. Shazam is how I enhance my time with my family and friends, building the musical backdrop for the best times of my life.
THE BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO MUSIC LOVERS
by BriggsMultimedia on 2019/09/14 12:35
SHAZAM IS THE BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO MUSIC LOVERS SINCE iTunes. I listen to music much of the day. Whether I’m in my car, at home, on an aircraft, on a Caribbean Sea vessel, my music is on! What Shazam does for me is to identify music with which I’m unfamiliar in an instant. And the best feature is one I only recently “discovered!” As I heard new music, I used to run for my phone with the Shazam app to position it to pick up the audio. But I listen to so much of my music via my iPhone! I just discovered that I can simply click on Shazam while any music is playing in my phone from any source. Shazam identifies it instantly! Before the ding has finished playing from some radio station in the world, Shazam has made it possible for me to download it!!!!
Great app but weak connection
by Saitama2020 on 2021/10/19 14:42
I always loved Shazam it serves as a great tool when discovering and exploring new music genres especially when you don’t know the name of the song. Just one problem, every time I try Shazamming every song it doesn’t work like at all. It’s always worked well no matter the location so bad service or internet connection is not an excuse. Yet every time I reinstall it, it starts to work again but sometimes or even most of the time it still doesn’t work. This is really becoming dumb and annoying because not only am I unable to discover music that I really begin to like and find interest in, but I don’t seem to understand why the app is now acting like this piece of junk to where it doesn’t seem to want to work anymore. Overall, great app and hopefully this is just some undiscovered bug.
Exactly as One Would Hope!
by N3UMY3R on 2019/07/16 14:22
I loath being asked to review. I don’t mind giving my ‘star-rating,’ but anything more dissuades me. HOWEVER, the folks at Shazam deserve praise. As a music-lover and a musician this app is invaluable. It is incredibly competent and accurate at its job! Thank you folks for your brilliance in helping me identify songs in a music world that is now populated with probably the largest volume of “recorded” classic, indie, and DIY artists in the history of our civilization. Just 30 years ago the task of your app would have been daunting, however now it seems to me it should be insurmountable, yet you guys are accomplished at the task. Making my life easier and my iTunes playlist evolving and diverse. Thank you seems insufficient. Regardless, thank you!
Seriously though...
by Emmajay775 on 2018/06/23 13:21
I don’t write reviews. I don’t care that much tbh. However this app is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. Yeah I know it sounds sad. However, this app has brought me music I find just the last lyrics on. It’s fast and smooth and saves everything so I don’t have to remember it. This app has brought me music I would have never gone the extra mile to listen too. Bringing me to experiences I’ve never had. Even with no WiFi it saves what it’s hearing. It’s crazy. I was feeling down and I heard this song I used the app on a while back. I looked it up on this app and found something that is almost like personal therapy. I’ve recommended it to all my friends there’s just no beating something as convenient as this.
