The Shazam App has transformed the way we engage with music, serving as an exceptional tool. 

Picture yourself in a cafe when you hear a catchy tune playing but are unsure of the title. That's where Shazam comes in, a music recognition application that listens to the song and reveals the track's name and the artist. 

All you have to do is open the app, tap the Shazam button, and presto, the song details will appear on your device's screen. However, its capabilities extend beyond song identification.

In addition to recognizing songs, the Shazam App offers song lyrics, music videos, and links to various music streaming platforms, allowing you to listen to the whole track.

I have extremely eclectic taste in music & only a handful of times has Shazam been stumped. Honestly, the few times it has happened I think had more to do with Australian 60 Minutes speaking over the music chosen for dramatic effect in a scene. It extremely frustrating that they do so & don't include the songs in the credits. On the few occasions they haven't spoken over the whole segment, Shazam has been able to quickly name the songs."


Solid 10! It's so easy to use! I use Shazam to build my Spotify play lists. Hear something on the radio or in a store? SHAZAM! Grab that song now. You can move it over later, adding it where you want, search for a different version, etc. But, you lock it in now, with a quick screen tap. Not even a distraction. The ONLY thing I'd like to add to the app, would be the ability to search the library for previous Shazams of the same song, for faster deletion. A dozen incidents, is overkill."


It's great for finding songs you hear on the radio or out in public, BUT it won't list songs in other apps if it doesn't capture any lyrics. I've tried dozens of times now, and it either can't recognize it, or it gives me a totally random song that doesn't even sound similar. I can find a song myself if I hear the lyrics, but if it's a classical song or something with no lyrics, shazam doesn't help at all."
