Rocky33Now - “Shazam!”
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.
Robert Aymond - Best APP Ever!
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.
handmethefrench - Not dependable
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.
Pattycakeb19 - Special songs I like.
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!
jordane1 - Thought It Was Good...But
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
DJ Kobayashi Maru - Very Impressed. Amazed, really.
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.
allen enriquez - Shazaman! Searchin!
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!
tyraandmom - Songs while offline
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.
momalaaa - Older songs
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!
CeceLady - I’ve Been Shazam—otized !!!!
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. ❤️❤️❤️❤️😊
Colorado0so - Too many changes, too much Greed $$’s
When Shazam app first came out, IT was a fantastic product!! and you could Shazam a song on radio, in a car, on TV... and listen to it “”all”” later & see lyrics, share complete song/video with family & friends.... it was a 5-star App... after it was sold... purchased and changed & compromised by ? Apple ...
? ?new ownership.. the immediate Greed for money appeared and then extra music fees, purchases, memberships tainted this once useful App... greed, yes, greed... absolutely destroyed the once marvelous features and freedom of use and listen to songs, many saved & shared.. & CD’s purchased at retailers... Family & friends tell me they seldom use it since all the changes and restrictions and new, greedy charges imposed/required to ‘checkout a song’.
I’d have to say... that’s what killed its once, highly rated popularity... Apple Music and Spotfy biggest issues I hear about...$$$’s
Good luck !
Harvey Kongsgaard - Classical and Modern Serious Music.
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.
Magicmiketooo - Life changer
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.
Dallas halsey - One of My Top 5 Apps
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!!!!
Kokubu - Not nearly as accurate or useful as claimed
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.
Davidmaxbaker123 - Could Be Better
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.
#StrawberryLemonade - 😁😍😃AMAZING 😃😍😁
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.
Proteus 846 - Several Issues
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.
NonstopRug - Cool but there’s a flaw with the iOS implementation
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.
Salty girl - Most Reliable App Ever Made!!
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!!
12356890673Abi - 3.5 stars
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
Mathew71 - Great app when it works!
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!
.+*Vulpixi*+. - Great App
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!
Venezuelan Melomaniac... - Really Good!
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!
soundz4senses - Reading my mind
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.
Mad Mike Max - I love this application
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.
john h6212 - Great App!! Very Helpful!!
App is great it’s very helpful when your trying to figure out the name of a song that is on the tip of your tounge, or who sings the song Shazam is there to help with that in a matter of seconds. I’ve used this app for a long time with all of the songs I’ve Shazam’d I’ve only had one issue, I think it was just a glitch it gave me a completely different song 2 times in a row and then the 3rd time it popped up, I haven’t had an issue since, I’ve also had a few app upgrades over the time period too. I honestly think since it was a song in a movie the talking and other background noise threw it off l, but I love this app!! I’ve only had the one issue and no other problems since the one mess up.
NickA1441 - Great all around music application.
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.
BriggsMultimedia - THE BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO MUSIC LOVERS
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!!!!
Aste Spumante - Not as smart as you’d think
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.
Digital Learning Specialist - 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.
Saaoyx - I wish I could put ZERO STARS
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.
FireFlash9 - Great app, but one issue.
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!
Hooked on Butterflies - Shazam Is Awesome!
I absolutely love Shazam! My daughter told me about it, so I downloaded it. When new songs play on the radio, the DJs never say the name of the song or artist, so it takes a while to learn who sings them. With Shazam, I never have to worry about it anymore! I’ve used it for TV shows to find out the song and artist and also in a store when they are playing music over the sound system. I have a party every year and start collecting music so I can play it during the party. All I have to do is go to “My Shazam” file to look at all the songs I Shazamed and make my playlist. Sometimes, I can’t understand the words to the song and I’m able to go to the lyrics tab to look them up. It’s the coolest App ever!
nvthree - Fork to my Plate
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.
N3UMY3R - Exactly as One Would Hope!
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!
Lysie Lou - This is an awesome app... but mine has been glitching!
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.
Emmajay775 - Seriously though...
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.
x-_-paiN-_- - NOT what it use to be. 👎🙁
Shazam use to be fast & easy after the updates now it takes for ever and it hardly ever finds songs on tv like on movies any more. Specially if not in English or recent songs. I run iPhone 6+ 128 GB so it's not because of space. I miss the sound waves it use to have. Had to try 7 times to find a Willie Nelson song and for another one after 10 attempts I gave up. Developers please make Shazam what it use to be, it doesn't have to be all pretty face as is now I use to spend a lot of time at a time on the app would stay on for 2 - 3 hours listening to music from Shazam but now it's so slow. Also I want to get paid version but how can I if I'm not happy with what I see. Please go back or re update but fix.
Themusicman08 - Very good app and I appreciate what it does.
This app is great and it comes in handy since I am a broadcaster on an Internet radio station. There are a lot of songs that Shazam can identify that Siri can’t. There are just two small problems and I hope that in a future update these can be resolved. In Shazam below the Shazam button is a button that is not labeled. I believe this is the search button. But voiceover doesn’t know what to do with it. It guess is at what it is. Then in the top right corner, there is the charge button. When you get into this area, you are unable to close this area by going back. I’m hoping that Shazam an apple and Shazam work to fix these issues. Other than that, this is a good app.
kylie_nope - This is amazing really
I love this app so much, I really liked this song at a party and I didn’t know what it was and I asked my friend and she whipped out Shazam and told me the name of the song and I was amazed. I immediately downloaded it and it’s so cool. It will take around 2 seconds for it to recognize the song and it will add it to your Apple Music if you want it to. It will also tell you who it is by, and how many Shazam’s it’s had. This app also doesn’t even require the voice of the person singing to know the song. It requires no sign up so you can just download and use it right away. This app is incredible and I really love it so you should give it a try!!!! Plus, it’s totally free!!! I love it so much! You should try!!
tulleymay - Finds songs scary fast
I feel like hell is hearing an amazing song and not being able to find the name of it. However, Shazam will reach down into the burning depths of hell and pluck you out safely to the melody of your new favorite song, with the name and artist attached to it. In .1463 seconds, it will find the song you are looking for, even if it’s the part of the song that’s basically silent, or sounds like 10 million other songs. Shazam knows. Shazam knows the song you’re looking for, the thoughts in your head, your deepest darkest secret, the first time you masturbated, and the when and how of your death. Shazam knows all, and it knows in .1463 seconds or less. It is omnipotent; omniscient... and a hell of an app I guess.
simplegray - Poor UX. Hard to Shazam after the first Shazam.
This app does one thing and that one thing is not present on any page in this app after your first Shazam. So dumb.
More — The “Shazam” button exists only on the launch page. Once you Shazam and it finds the track, you are forever stuck on the details page of that song. It doesn’t reset back to the Shazam page, ever. And it doesn’t let you swipe to go back (sorry iPhone Plus and X users). If you come back 3 days later to Shazam a song quickly, you’ll still be stuck on the last track you Shazam’d and no quick Shazam button access (read: no ability to Shazam). The only way to do it is to hit little tiny back arrow button perfectly to go back. I have missed so many Shazam chances because I opened Shazam, it lands on the details page of a song I Shazam’d days ago, and I couldn’t quickly hit back with one hand on my phone. Beautifully designed app, poorly thought out UX.
phryedbanana - Used to love this app
Used to be one of my favorite apps. Would load in a second, pick up songs from crowded bars, or just a few seconds of a commercial. Now I’m lucky to get the app open and working before the song is over. Takes far too long to load. Also doesn’t decipher as well as it used to. You also have to press a small inconvenient button to go back to use the app after is has told you what the song is. The sounds wave bands or whatever they are called used to pulse to the beat of the song now it just randomly throbs. I realize some of these complaints are knit picking, but this app used to be so awesome and work so well only a few years ago.
Busyfresh2000 - Shazam ANYTHING (literally)
This is a great app to use to identify ALMOST every song ever, although there are those tracks that no matter how many times you shazam them they won't be identified, even if you know the song and just want to know the artist. My one gripe with this app is that it doesn't match up the tracks properly; it says it's this song, but in reality you know it isn't and you shazam it a few more times, and then the proper song is matched...all in all it's a very useful app, doesn't take much space, and usually can get a match first try... 3.5 out of a possible 5 from me, but I had to give it a 4 due to the fact I can't click on only a half star. This app is 👌 by me...
ALESTIF - Is PERFECT!! but..
I love this app and I use it too much but I hate that to listen the song you have to paid Apple Music.
Yes I know that this app does magic recognizing songs, one day I see a video recorded in 2013 by my mom, in the video she was recording the window of the car and in the background there was a song playing, I was thinking which was the name of the song and I put the video in background and enter to Shazam.
Shazam recognized the song in seconds and the thing that surprise me was that in the video the sound of the car was very loud. I give it 5✰ because the recognition of songs is incredible but i would love the app if you could listen the song complete.
Mikey_DaGoat - OMG SHAZAM🙏🏾🙏🏾
Guys if you are about to download this app let me tell you something. If you are trying to find a favorite song but dont know the title? Use this and it automatically finds it iff the internet. No errors at all i promise you I confirmed it myself. Ive been using shazam for over a year now and it is the most essential app in my life. 2 days earlier i was shazaming a song but it didnt really pick up the audio because i couldnt find the remote. So it was ok at first but actually TODAY i got an notification on my phone saying they “retried shazaming the song” and it was the exact one i was hearing fot the past week. So i just wanted to say Shazam is the best song finder in the iphone app store HANDS DOWN🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾
Gio22447 - Complaint about Shazam
While I was talking on the phone today I tried to delete a song on my Shazam Library and I clicked the three vertical dots of that song. I clicked “remove from Shazam library” at least five times and nothing happened. Once I hung up the phone and went back to library I noticed it deleted five songs from my Shazam Library. This isn’t cool since it gives people the misconception that the song wasn’t deleted and they can continuously click delete only to find out after, that, they deleted multiple songs. Either enhance the system to allow deleting a song while on a call or display an error message saying “error unable to delete a song while on cellular data, etc.” One of the five songs from my library which was deleted, as a result of this bs, was a song I was searching for for over 5 years and now it’s lost forever and I don’t remember the name of that artist.
t.jmax - Amazing Music App!
I love this app, it is so awesome, and here’s why: First of all, I’m a music LOVER. And this is a great way to be in contact with music.
When I’m watching you tube, I hear music that I really love. I want it on my playlist of course, but I don’t know the title of it and I get really sad. Untell this app was released, I would use this app every day, and I still do. And I can get any song I hear basically. I LOVE IT 🥰 When ever I want a song I hear, Shazam is great, it’s easy. I take my iPad always on the go, and I get ten songs on my playlist every day basically. I hope you all love this app, because I totally do! Who ever made this app, I give credit. Thank you so Much for reading! Bye now. P.s. I love horses and my horse Bokaloh says hi bye😏😘
Cardin K - The Best!
This is the best app I’ve ever used to help name those songs! If you guys want a feature suggestion, it would be to display a list of several songs with their perspective percentage match for what you’re recording. For example:
97.4% match this song......
22.7% match this song......
14.2% match this song......
...... (and so forth) .......
Atleast, this would be something I would add to my app (if I knew how to make one).
Because basically, on occasion when Shazam just can’t correctly name a song, it may be useful for us to see the top most likely songs it could be, and we could go through each of them to see if any of them are the one we are looking for.
Also, with a feature like that it’d also be good to receive updates live, like after every second (and as the app hears more of the song) it updates it’s list of percentages of what song it’s likely to be. Updating live so that you can continue to shazam as long as you want, and the longer of a shazam, the more likely you are to see the correct song at the top of the list.
... Just a suggestion to make the app better!

Waussie187 - What would you do without this app?
I have discovered countless amounts of songs with the use of Shazam and it’d be so annoying if this app didn’t exist. It has enabled me to expand my selection of music, thus enhancing my playlists. Whenever a catchy song plays on the radio and I don’t know the name of it, Shazam is always the first thing that comes to my head when I need to discover the song. It is able to pick up almost every song correctly, even ones that aren’t that common. I also enjoy the fact that when you tap the lyrics button, each line will appear in tandem with the line sung in the actual song. This further accentuates the smart level of technology contained within Shazam.
blackT - Very handy app
Works well ... Gone are the days of searching record stores for months looking for a song you've heard a few times and really want to buy it. But you don't know the title, so you sing a few words to the lucky person behind the counter hoping someone will know it, and then when someone eventually recognises it , you don't believe them until they play it because the name's something really obscure...
Gee those days were fun , this app has killed all that and now life is a little easier , not as fun but when you hear a song just open the app and press the circle and voila
Dynamoworks - Great in concept
This app used to work great, I loved using it. Fair to say it changed my relationship with music, and became my default tool for deciding my Triple J hottest 100 votes (most shazzams for a song gets my top vote). Unfortunately it’s now supper buggy and unreliable for some reason. I think they changed the way it works? If you didn’t have cell coverage it used to just store a sample for when you get back in range. Now it panics and crashes, or freezes and won’t work, like, 50% of the time. It’s it because it’s so busy downloading ads that there’s no processor left for the actual purpose of the app?
I don’t understand how a great app which used to work really well can get *less* reliable. Please Shazam sort your selves out, I love your app but it’s unusable like this
bshaas - Apple Music syncing is always broken
Every time Shazam release an update they break the auto syncing function and Shazamed songs are no longer added to the “My Shazam Tracks” playlist in Apple Music. I’ve tried using the Encore app, the standard app, disconnecting and reconnecting Apple Music, logging out and logging back in, and deleting and reinstalling the app. Nothing works. Songs have to be manually added. Very frustrating, that was my main use case for Shazam. It’s a great app and it’s even better on an Apple Watch, but I want to listen to music in Apple Music, not the Shazam app. Also, why the heck are the saved “My Shazam” tracks separate in Shazam and Shazam encore? Obviously Shazam encore has been depreciated but if I try and use the standard Shazam app instead I lose my entire Shazam history? Just a poorly thought out and poorly developed system all around.
*annoyed user* - Good app! But I have a big suggestion!
This app is really good, but think of it as this.
Your in the car, you don’t have Shazam on your phone, but you heard this really good song on the radio. If you could add a feature where you can Shazam recorded videos, you could just record the song then when you get home and download it, you can just Shazam the video.
I would also love this feature because sometimes when your scrolling through Instagram or tiktok you come across a song, so if we could just screen record and then Shazam the video it would be was easier then using 2 devices!
Hope you think about this suggestion! :D
DnntD - This is my favorite app of all times
Friend of mine suggested Shazam while ago and now it’s part of my life, can’t even imagine it without Shazam. This app helped me in so many situations where I had just a few seconds of finding tracks name and artist. So helpful, flawless, perfect app. I seriously love it. Thank you creators, you made my life easier, long gone days when I had to search for the tracks online trough radio stations where I heard them etc. If I could give 10 stars I would, but I can only give 5. Recently I watched movie Shazam - this is exactly how the app feels for me - a superhero. ;)
ScoobyDoo's1stfan#1 - Internet problems?
To who it may concern,
I used to love Shazam, a lot. Even though it may work perfectly on my iPhone 7 it no longer works perfectly on my iPad. In fact, it no longer works at all on my iPad. Every time I try to Shazam a song on my iPad it takes forever and then it finally comes up with a message saying that they’ll notify me when I’m back online. After the first few times I thought there was something wrong with my internet even though google was still working for me, but then I decided to put it to the test. I tried to Shazam a song on my iPhone and my iPad at the same time, it worked on my iPhone and did the same thing that it had been doing to me on my iPad. I’ve deleted the app and downloaded it again too many times to count. How do I fix this? Is anyone else having the same problem?
Obediah spittle - Clever
I was in a cocktail bar on a cruise ship where there was lots of laughter, clinking of glasses, talking etc and I could hear this good music coming from the overhead speakers above the din. I knew I wasn’t able to Shazam the music because I didn’t have Internet so I held my phone up as far as I could towards the speakers and recorded it on voicemail on my phone. I came home after the cruise had finished, and used my husband’s Shazam on my recording and it picked up the song amongst all the laughter and the clatter - I couldn’t believe it - very clever - and I got my song. Happy me!!
AussieStarWarsFan77 - Doesn’t pick up music!
Great app but lately or most of the time it hasn’t picked up any of the music I’ve tried listening to as it always comes back saying “No result We didn’t catch that try again” after I’ve pressed the button to listen! It still does it even though I’ve got the music up loud or I’m in a cinema where they have the speakers up really loud and yet most of the time it still comes up with the same message all the time even though the rings on the listening section are big but still doesn’t pick up the music no matter how loud the music is playing! It’s been doing this for a long time now but sometimes it works and finds the songs but other times it doesn’t! I like the app but just wished it would work 100% of the time as it’s meant to work!
Beirutlover - It wants to do everything
It’s a great app for searching songs but I guess now it wants to overtake all your iPhone apps and wants to connect to any available Bluetooth playback device. It has a great lag when you want to open a song in something else other than an apple related web site, then again, I guess apple own it and that’s to be expected.
In today’s world of many apps and easily available technology I think they need to realise there are many other options out there now, it’s called competition!
Eddie Bauhn. - Was great, apple 5ucked it.
I’ve been using Shazam for coming up to ten years and it was always my favourite and close to my most used app. Since Apple bought it, it’s become worse and worse. The premium version (which I paid for) was killed off and now everybody has to use the same lame ad supported and Apple centric app. Listening options no longer support the best streaming services and many other useful features from the original app have also been killed off.
pinkhavanabaypup - Awesome app
Absolutely love it so much, I use it almost every day and because I’m hard at hearing it catches songs that I can’t hear very well sometimes. Only problem is it doesn’t always catch some songs that I can hear and it sometimes doesn’t catch live performed songs but other than those two things it is the perfect app, I don’t have to search and search the internet for that song using only a few lyrics I remember
Dj Sammy W - Miss Sammy W reckons
This app is the front and centre of my home page. This app makes me believe I really could be a Dj because of the convenience of having the great songs right there and then in my playlist forever. The creator of this app deserves whatever highest award he or she may qualify for. You are my hero Shazam creator. You have changed my life for the better and I cannot express my appreciation in words. Well this is my attempt anyway. Much love, one of the many number 1 fans. Peace
anyway mARTIna - Thank YOU Shazams
Hi my name is mARTIna and I have only few App on my phone. YOU know ... the essential one that help YOU to organise the NEEDS . And Shazams allowed me, in the past 3 years to learn so much about a song, I could easily found it again because Shazams with only one click could tell me exactly the creator of the song and the title so it was possible to find it again on the net . and connect closer to the song the person I was sharing that song with ... etcetera .... 🌻
DisapDi - Hit and Miss
When I first got this app it was relatively basic which was fine, as it had the ability to listen and advise me of what the song title was 90% of the time. Unfortunately it did take a while to load then and crashed often while loading. Now it loads fast, has lots of additional features and can rarely tell me the song titles that I’m trying to locate anymore. Clearly I’m not after common hits, who needs an app for that?! So for the past year (roughly)I’ve hardly bothered, coz when I’ve really been stuck and needed it, it didn’t deliver!
1of 7 billion - Great, absolutely great
I think it’s a great idea and executed almost perfectly andi know that there are countless updates they have planned still, but atm there is one slight problem I have noticed, although not a big problem at all, the app occasionally gets songs wrong and not knowing the name for the song you’re wanting to find and believing it’s the song they show you can be a little bit annoying. However this could be classified as knit picking, it would be nice to fix this, thanks
RUPY TN - BRILLIANT
I installed this to test the claims. First on the radio next to my mac, easy. Next watching tv, liked a movie soundtrack as the credits rolled, clicked the app, nailed it, confirmed by the credits, (and I never left the couch) ... the last time, sitting on the balcony of a restaurant overlooking the sea, 4 of us all talking etc, I heard the background music, clicked the app, just holding the phone, no jamming up against speakers ... nailed it again. So, in a word, BRILLIANT!
Would give it 6 stars if I could.
Jjenny829 - Disappointed
I love Shazam but for some unknown reason it no longer works on my iPad, fantastic with my iPhone.. I haven’t been able to receive songs since 2019. Recently I deleted the app and downloaded it again on the iPad thinking it would help, but I lost all my songs and it still won’t work.. I would be so grateful for an answer as I would prefer to use it with my iPad.. Thankyou.
Now to add because I can’t do a new review. It still doesn’t work with my iPad. I really would like and explanation why. But I guess you just don’t have time to solve this issue which others have. So I guess I’ll just keep adding to this message until I get a reason.
kazzanator - Pretty good but one suggestion!
Wish it would allow you to upload segments from a recorded video! My heart breaks having to shazam a song on the spot that I hear, and in case it doesn’t catch it, the song passes and then I’ve missed the opportunity to shazam it more 😭 would love the option to upload a recorded video so we can record clips of songs and then be able to shazam them all the next day (rather than just in the moment!)
Other than that, love the app so much xx
Lissjen - Best app ever!
Every time that I use it. It brings back memories form the eighties childhood, when you dreamed about the future and thought how cool if you could have something like this that can tell you which song is playing. Rather than try to catch the name of the song in radio program. Tell you kids... it was a hard job pick. Sometimes you had to wait for days until you hear it back again. Cheers
veronica787 - It’s an awesome app but..
I’ve used Shazam for years but it has been the first time that the app has stuffed up. I shazamed a couple of songs last night. Today I wanted to put them on my playlist. I went on to Shazam and tried to swipe where I shazamed my songs and all of a sudden the app freezes. It won’t allow me to see any of the songs. Everything else works but that. I have tried deleting the app and getting it back, I have also tried turning my phone off and on again. That doesn’t work either. Please fix this.
Yoon9994 - I cannot fault it.
I love my music, and if I hear a song I will sing along. I will know the words and it can come from an obscure memory of a party my parents had when I was little. But I don’t know the artist or the name of the song. I am yet to stump Shazam.
From getting the name of the artist, I can now follow their musical journey. It can lead me in very different and fulfilling directions and has expanded my knowledge and love of popular music.
Magdi7 - Not Impressed
There’s more to life than just Money -
Shazam you keep coming up with annoying ways to try and get its users to buy Songs. We now have another with the latest Update - a stupid notification taking up a good part of the screen trying to get us to go to Apple Music. I’d rather be able to see the info on the screen about the Songs.
A Music type App that failed to realise that music lovers don’t need to be pushed to buy music and I wasn’t a real Fan of you getting the Video to auto play after every Shazam & waste my Mobile Dara.
Think about it Shazam...
okookoko_~- - Great app
This app is almost perfect everytime, sure, there are occasions where it can’t really pick up what’s playing, but thats more because of too much noise drowning out the music (which needs to be alot to stop it to work), or the clip is too short. To summarise, this is the best readily available app for music identification. From my tests, its more than likely to find what you’re looking for, even if the tracks are suuuuuper indie.
Ellabella546 - Shazam review
This is an amazing app, I use it almost every time in the car.
I haven’t had any problems with it apart from the fact that when I don’t have any wifi or data I have to wait until I get to somewhere with wifi. I scroll through the long list of music when I need to find a nice song to listen to a lot as well.
I would definitely recommend this app to anyone.
RnBispainful - Something isn't working
In the past this has been an amazing tool to use & has helped thousands of times. Not needed to use it for a while. Now when wanting to use it, it can't pick up anything or tells me it can't recognise anything. Have deleted & reinstalled the app & same problems. Hope someone could give me some information as to what may be happening.
kellzyBellzy03 - Every day use
I use Shazam very single day, it’s that good. Don’t know the name of a song and can’t get it out of your head? All you have to do is Shazam it... hear a good song on the radio & you like it? All you have to do is Shazam it and add it to your playlist. Shazam can do it all for your Apple Music playlists. Shazam really is the way to go for finding out music when you don’t know it’s name or title! Go Shazam it!!!!
uggcbiiyf - Concept
Shazam could publish playlists comprising the ten most or twenty most similar songs/tracks to the one for which the user was searching. On the presumption that the algorithm operates reductively by analogy, it should be possible to identify the five most, ten most, fifty most similar songs, etc.
This would be a popular addition to your service, and I hope you find the suggestion useful. Robot! Peace out.
jeffrey heheheheheheheheheh - Shazam
Shazam is good because when I’m on a road trip like recently and we play songs or hear songs we are not sure what they are called Shazam is a great app to help and if you like that song it automatically saves the song so you won’t forget and it’s easy to see because it’s got a bright and nice front cover :) great work with designing this app it is super convinient - user

Madad550 - Little disappointed.
Well you know how your tuning this chick and everything is going sweet and a song comes on and she loves it and your pretending you know that song like your mum played it to you in the cot. So you swing your phone up hit Shazam and bang you need wifi. And you ain’t got wifi cause you blew the owner of the club off when he pretend to know you. So all in all I think Shazam should carry some sort of memory or ability to work under duress just like us men are. Cause you costing me time in the sack.
Tracey1611 - My go to App!
You’re my go to app and so under rated! That one song I hear that brings back a memory that I’m listening to and can’t remember who the artist is? Or it’s playing and I want to remember that song - I just hit that button and there you are - never an issue, always there to help capture my ‘go to playlists songs’ when I need them!
Friendly Faces 😊 - Great....
This app really is good for finding that song you’ve had stuck in your head, you just dunno what it’s called!
In the last update, I don’t like how they got rid of the ‘Play All’ of that artist option. That is how I like to listen to music, playing on its own but now after EVERY song (which goes for 30secs) I have to change it. So now I don’t use it as much.
But is great for selecting the song you dunno what it is called. It also has lyrics!!
Paulie-K - A big thumbs up
Easy to use and gets it right first go.
Maybe the app should listens for the song straight away when it opens, before hitting the button because some times it’s a song on a commercial and by the time you open the app there is not enough music for it to pick up..
Keep up the good work.
talking_point - SHAZAM is there ... for when you need it
In a change room in a shop in a mall: you don’t know when you’ll need SHAZAM: but you’ll appreciate that you’ve got it, for the great song just comes on once, and then for a moment. And SHAZAM satisfies your curiosity, for that great song can echo in your mind forever, and this time with a name, a performer, and your mind need not be wracked with regret.
bindi ❤️❤️ - What I think of Shazam
This app is amazing, it’s great when trying to find the name of the song when listening to it and not knowing. The down thing is that sometimes I don’t get the song because it doesn’t pick the song up and I would want it to be able to try to get the song even tho it might be to quiet
Adam Geelong VIC - Shazam ... Still the best app ever made
I still remember using Shazam for the first time, and I still get the exact same first-time feel every time I use it. Absolutely amazing.
The world needs music, and we need to know what our ears are enjoying so we can enjoy it again and again and again!
Shazam deserves every million it has made.
Thank you Shazam!
rollinkrypto - Right on point
I needed this in the late 80’s & 90’s. No more embarrassment when I don’t know a popular song title or artist. The choice to connect with paid music streaming services rather than make it a necessity is great for us who just want to know the name of the music we like on the radio & also those who can’t afford streaming services can use it with ease. Thanks
Karlee1999 - My go to!
I have always and always will love this app, its just so easy to use and unlike using snapchat or siri to find a song that i end up forgetting again, this saves all the passed songs youve shazam’d AND if you have apple music it will automatically download the song for you and put it into a playlist! So perfect! Highly recommend
jxydxnsmxth - Shazam is great as always, just not for your Apple Watch.
Shazam works perfectly on my iPhone. Unfortunately it doesn't work as well on my Apple Watch. I tap on the "Shazam" button and am taken to the "I'll tap you when I'm done" prompt. I have both a perfect signal and a strong connection to both wifi and cellular. I have tried reinstalling the app, but nothing seems to fix it. The exact same song will be identified almost immediately on my iPhone.
seawilk - Can’t believe it
On a cruise recently in the cocktail bar and could hear this lovely music playing above all the people talking and laughing. I recorded it on my phone as I didn’t have Shazam at the time and it was very hard to hear the song but when I got home I recorded it on my husband Shazam and up came the title of the song and then I purchased it. Very happy me.
Tough Cookie🍪 - Shazam Review
I like how you can “Shazam” songs if you don’t know the name. Sadly I can’t listen to the full song unless I pay for it on Apple Music or you watch the video. I do like watching the videos and reading part of the lyrics but I wish you could listen to the whole song and read the whole lyrics. Overall Shazam is pretty good, a few adjustments and it would be amazing! Keep it up!😉
Christinerose79 - Seriously the best app ever
I have had Shazam for years now!!!!! It is and handsdown will always be the best app ever. I am an avid music lover and when I hear something on the radio or a movie I can just Shazam it and I get the song and artist instantly!!! This app has seriously change my life I get all the songs I love straight away to my phone and to my playlist!!! Best app ever!!!! ❤️❤️❤️😘😘
Blaqmercury - Would have put me out of a job.
Having worked in the retail music industry back before the internet was live, this app would have put me out of a job back in the day. Very handy and prompt in finding artist/song titles. Truly amazing stuff an old music buff. I wish to shake the hands of those who brought this technology into existence- thank you! 👍🏻🤘🏽
Kristina Logan - Shazam Review
Shazam is a very useful app. Before Shazam I struggled to remember songs from the radio, but with Shazam it’s not a problem. Shazam knows the song within seconds. You can even Shazam off-line, it is slower then with wifi but is still very helpful. Shazam will notify you once you’re back on wifi what the song was. I find Shazam so helpful and my life wouldn’t be the same with it
Damage 63 - What more do you need ! ! !
I’m 57 bought vinyl back in my teens ( my dad had a 8 track cartridge player in the car ) moved to CD’s, awesome so much better than vinyl. Now in the digital age, with Shazam I never have to buy another CD ever again !
Shazam syncs to Apple Music download the song and there you go full albums from Shazaming one song, playlists on all devices.
PERFECT ! ! !
DJTig - Buggy.
Repeatedly prompting me to rate your app? That's a one star. Glad to hear you fixed it.
Also, when I go to My Shazam, the screen stays white. I have to return to the main screen and attempt again. Second attempt usually works.
Then, when I hit play all, it'll play about six songs, then loop them over instead of moving down the list like it used to.
I like the app, and I recommend it to friends, but it has been annoying me lately.
Kayla V 101 - Love this app
I love this app I believe it’s free and if I hear a song I like but have know idea what it call or can’t remember the lyrics. As long as I have my phone on me I just tap this and put it to the speakers 🔊. It tells you who wrote a song and what the name of this song is. Comes in really handy. That’s why I love this app. Would definitely recommend.
Christinakkk - The Shazam app - review - quality
9 times out of 10 it's able to scan and get the recording correctly but it's even better when it happens in another language. The app is front page iPhone ready on my phone :)
I'd like there to be a way of improving how it picks up sound (instead of it 'failing') and a bigger library of tunes, otherwise it's a perfectly good and very helpful app :)
Shaylee Gilbert - Love Shazam
I use Shazam a lot absolutely love the app always find the songs I want I only with that apple user would be able to use Shazam inside the phone. Found this song that was playing in a video and I couldn’t find it because some are the lyrics are hard to hear it would of been a great help if I could of just used Shazam within the phone

Alex Cross 12335 - Shazam review
Shazam is really good when I don’t know what a song is. My only complaint would be that they are sometimes slow for guessing the song.
cK1up - Fabulously Amazing!
Throughout all of my Shazam’s. They are all correct and this app is perfect for finding the name of that perfect song. Great app!
av1000s - sucks
cant even shazam a great opera
sirenshxt - 👻
Its better than any app
2Lt Weir - Best App Ever!
Have you ever been someplace and heard a tune that is special to you but no way of asking anyone what it is? Boom this does it!
Music is something that can perk up your soul when you need it.
Especially during these difficult times.
grant2350 - Appli la plus intelligente
Une appli complet et convivial au max
Chris 847 - Works as expected
Works as expected
shistar james - Shazam just sucks now
I’ve tried to find 12 songs with the auto shazam method and none of them worked i even played the songs for a solid 25 seconds each.. i had to maually search the lyrics by ear to find em🤷♀️ probably going to delete the app
Votrumblami - Petite déception
Depuis la création de Shazam, je suis devenu un fan de l’application. Je regrette cependant comme utilisateur que nous avons perdu au fil du temps la possibilité de fredonner des chansons pour les identifier tandis que c’était initialement faisable. Ça demeure une bonne app même si c’est également dommage qu’elle soit maintenant avalée par Apple et combinée avec ces autres tentacules pour tenter de nous forcer de lui fournir encore plus de nos infos personnelles et de nos préférences pour nous enfoncer de travers dans la gorge ses publicités ou produits et services complémentaires. Sinon ça demeure une de mes applications les plus utilisées.
Siamese1974 - Shazam doesn’t work with google music on iPhones.
Shazam no longer works with google music on iPhones. Screw you, Shazam. What a load of garbage. Deleting.
Keldeo-EXO - Un petit soucis
Shazam et vraiment super très bien pour trouver ce que l’on cherche mais j’ai une musique que j’avais film sur ma ps vita je connais pas le titre je le fais écoute à Shazam mais elle me donne pas le bon morceau elle ma donner un autre artiste qui n’a rien avoir avec la musique que j’ai fait écouter à Shazam la musique que j’ai fait écouter était la voix d’une femme qui chante mais il me donne un homme qui n’a rien avoir avec le morceau que j’ai
Dric's - Apple Music VS Spotify
Je préférai quand l’appli étant associée à Spotify.
Maintenant qu’elle l’est avec Apple Music, les titres ne s’ouvrent plus sur Spotify... Erreur en permanence malgré une connections valide.
BloodWolf519 - Awesome
This app has never failed me!!
jenie38 - wow
best song finder from any movie beat remix's save to library n loaded to music
ben3631 - Good stuff
Peace and love
Boom Wood - Good
Bedt idea related to music genius
naj1350 - What’s wrong with the new version?
It was a great app, and it’s not anymore :-(
Santei007rus - Great!
Found the song which was impossible to hear love it
missytg - Love
Shazam says my fave music and helps to make my life greatness. All the love ❤️❤️❤️
nxurjfbue in ncke - Je deteste votre version
Je deteste maintenant , avant je pouvait avoir accès directement a mettre ma music dans mon album spotify , maintenant depuis que vous avez apple music je ne peut plus je trouve cela très désagréable de devoir ouvrir spotify et ré écouter la chanson
SureShott - Great app
Great app for when you need that song title
Smokeless Steve - Awesome App
Excellent app and I would have given it a 5 star if it had the ability to prevent duplicates when I want to add a shazamed track to my library. A function that would indicate that a song is already in my library when I try to add it or a function that can remove duplicates would make this app near perfect.
Exeoon_ - Will never stop using
I’ve been using Shazam since day one since they’ve came out and not once have they ever ever disappointed me thank you Shazam for not screwing up like all the other thousands of thousands of apps out there
lekdjfi - Spotify sync broken
Like the app if it only did what it should. Tracks are supposed to sync to a spotify play list. It works occasionally.
Wayne Romany - Awesome music
DJ Romany never leave home with my new iPhone 12 Pro Max loaded with my fav music... thanks for letting me find songs on the fly! Love this app-;) music to my ears! Thank you!
Bouhmid08 - Shazam
Ahhhh you are awesome guys I love this app till the moon and back my god can’t really explain what I feel for you 🔥🔥🔥😍😍😍😍😋😋😋❤️❤️❤️❤️
étoile CR7 - Parfait
J.Monehh - Love Shazam
Anime spot - A so-so app😐😑
I like this app, I use it for lyrics and song identification, but it’s not all that great because of Apple Music. I don’t want to pay for Apple Music. So, if you can, can you please allow Apple Music free for this app?
AngusMcGregor - Doesn’t work no stars
It hasn’t worked for over a month. I checked the settings and everything is on. Today I removed the app shut down my phone and downloaded it again and still nothing.
cerpj - Inaccurate results
My friend is DJing and Shazam can’t pick up the proper remixes that he’s playing on his tables. I can see his computer and the track titles. Shazam identifies the song title but not the accurate remix artist.
eSculape9 - Pourrie
Parfaite pour la musique qu’écoutent les adolescents californiens boutonneux. Sinon ... pourrie
rachellecouture - Inconsistent in the last year
I’ve always liked this app and its service but in the last year I’ve noticed that without having changed any settings when I press to listen it doesn’t work and just does like this bounce back vibration and tells me to press to auto listen. I have no idea what this is about. I’ve missed a lot of really good songs I wanted to capture and couldn’t otherwise identify at other times.
Ks345100 - Love it
Shazam always has the right song when I try! When it is from a movie it would be better if they showed the whole seen from the movie! Otherwise it is one of my fav songs...
Brckwrth - Bravissimo
Absolutely love this App!
nexus6gs [ve3myz] - Does what they say
Sami_2013 - Alakashazam!
C’est la magie au bout des doigts. Tellement incroyable que je veux continuer à ne pas savoir comment ça fonctionne ==> Boom !
SA quebec - Love is back
Chronoire V - With many thanks
Have been using your app for years now and love it. Many times I required the name of a new song and “Shazam” there it is. Allowing me to purchase on iTunes or search on YouTube and listen to it. Sure beats the days of missing the D.J. announce the band and missing it. Not knowing for weeks or in some cases years what the band name is or even the song name. Bravo and congratulations on developing a great app that is so incredibly useful. Thank you 👍✌🏼
pieceofhit - Include the year when the song was released along with the title and artist please
It would really be nice to have the year when the song was released included on the first page displayed on the app, along with the artist and name of the song. Great app! Thank you!
Charles18185 - Please
I want to be able to link it to other apps
