Shzam does all the intriguing work with in no time I have the music I most like listening to. This app just open the whole world of different tastes of music, great vibes just love its quick response.it is by far the best thing ever to have happened for musicians.

Really worthless. I'm kinda blown away at how this app can't even detect old standard classic rock songs. I'm not sure what this app is even good for. What are the Shazam developers smoking?

Shazam used to be really good, it was a really useful app, especially the auto shazam feature. For example I'll be on a social media app and see a video with a cool song in it, wanting to know what the song is i'll use auto shazam but ever since an update that happened a while ago auto shazam doesn't work, it's really annoying. Another example of this, say I'm watching the music channel on TV a song comes on that I like. I'm literally holding my phone to the TV and it can't find the song 👎

Keeps saying offline. Been using shazam for several years, now all of a sudden it keeps saying it is saving my search cos I'm offline. After a complete uninstall and reinstall, I can't even log in anymore as it keeps saying I'm offline. I couldn't have redownloaded the app if my internet was bad, so the faults clearly from the shazam servers. Fix up

Just the app that I needed, I dont have to Google lyrics anymore. Its instantaneous and the range of songs is amazingly huge. Nice interface though I wish there was an option to play the song on Spotify or download for offline.

A lot of music that this app can't even figure out, half the results it gives me are entirely different songs in an entirely different genre. Not the best feeling playing an epic type song only to be linked to a country song.

Why was the lyrics option removed for most africa songs in latest update.? I got heartbroken when i found this out. It was the only reason i loved the app in the first place. And besides it takes like forever to get an actual song. Poor Update. Please @Shazam do something about this. The lyrics most especially. Thanks.

My one complaint is that when you Shazam a song it does not tell you what genre the song falls into. That would greatly help in updating my song library so when I pick a particular genre I hear the same songs of that genre.

this app works super well. it's never incorrectly identified a song and I've used it in loud places where I could barely hear the music and was astonished it actually worked.

Reliable only if you try to search something popular and easy to differentiate. Unable to discover Lamb of God - Memento Mori. When I try to find something that is most likely to be unknown, shazam mostly fails. Better than nothing.

This app just embarrassed me before my friends , I told them that they could trust the app to perform its functions very well ,but unfortunately it just kept on reading and never gave any results till the song ended, this was really embarrassing and surely my friends wouldn't want to install "SHAZAM" , please rectify this issue

the identification of songs is now poor compared to the system in 2020/21. Popular songs can't get shazamed, I'd have to wait a long time for different stages of identification and yet nothing at the end. It's frustrating and painful cos I was expecting the song—even when I'm playing the song on my phone, it doesn't still catch it.

It doesn't work anymore? Tested it with songs that it used to recognise but it wont anymore.. EDIT: still not recognising any music, especially songs without lyrics

It's really good, pretty much no mistakes. It even finds songs that aren't on YouTube, which is insane.

I like the song preview from my Library of my recent Shazams. However, lately their sound quality is terrible and sounds like a cell phone with a bad signal breaking up. Also, it used to find songs quickly, lately it has been struggling 🤷

Words cannot express how much I love Shazam. From the second the app was developed until now I've been able to use it to find so many songs and I don't have to deal with ads every 2 seconds. I wish more apps were like Shazam

OMG !! I can't believe, This is one of the best applications I've ever tried. This application recognizes a 5 second music and finds the original song. Just wow!

I liked this app more when I could find out what the song was, and you'd get the lyrics too, seeing I don't have an iPhone, this new version of Shazam, doesn't serve any purpose to me, as I'm on android, so I'm uninstalling, it was alright once upon a time

Rendered completely useless now and before Google voice implemented the "identify this song" feature, Shazam was giving error messages whenever I tried to use it to identify a song. Still does no matter how many times I update the app. Sorry but you've been replaced. If you have an android, Google works everytime not just some of the time. Uninstalling.

Nope! Can't identify music anymore (15 answers, all wrong - Soundhound 1st try). Can't play music anymore, just a shill for Apple music now, no YouTube etc. Have to download and install Apple's product to hear even a short clip. Bye bye forever! I hate when this happens to an app... :(

Shazam is very very awesome. I've managed to fing almost 95% of the songs i've been recording on the radio and when i hear the song playing and likes it, where no one can tell me, i just Shazam it. And there's more, try it u won't be disappointed because so far Shazam is the best music identifier.Thanks very very much to the developers now i "find, listen and download."

Getting pretty tired of the pocket Shazam button not showing up, despite my app settings having it show up. Usually, updating the app corrects the problem but it keeps doing it. Fix it, why don't you? So now the damn app doesn't even try to find a song. Y'all gonna fix it or not?

Its really good for identifying songs but i dont like that you have to go on youtube or spotify to actually listen to the songs. There should be an option to listen to full songs

I've had this app for years and love it. Every new phone I get it's one of the first apps I download if it doesn't automatically transfer. And I make sure that I sign in with it so that all of my tags over the years come with me. I especially enjoy the fact that when I tag a song it's automatically added to my Spotify playlist so I can listen to it anytime from anywhere.

It's Shazam, can't really complain too much. The only issue I've came across is that if you enable the "notification bar tap to Shazam" button it keeps searching for music, and won't let you cancel the song search. Other than that, it works exactly as it should.

Awesome. missing many hiphop songs. but majority of music. period. is being picked up. not much unreleased from YouTube. but that's expected due to known reasons. Great App if you go to Bars. especially with Rock & Soul Music. love this app. please continue to upgrade to be able to notice songs that's not on Mains streaming platforms. upgrading tracks from YouTube would be a SUPERPLUS. THANK YOU

Simple, effective, and useful. I discovered this app from a grade school research paper and have been using it ever since. Who knows when you'll run into a cool song you want to listen to later. No bloat, no fuss, just works

This app was completely great at identifying a song within 5 seconds, but since it has been purchased by Apple, it has seriously gone down, it doesn't sense anymore. Please The First Owners must claim the app back

It's really amazing what this thing can do. I think it's miraculous the way it can match such a short excerpt it hears through your phone's microphone to such a large database of songs and do it so accurately. I just let it listen to the crowd noise from Frank Zappa's "ship arriving too late to save a drowning witch" and it gave me the correct answer. This suggests to me that it has one weakness: it can't identify a new version of a song until it gets that recording updated to its database.

Useful for identifying some music I don't usually listen to. But not all songs can be discovered this way, some are unshazamable (always return no result no matter how many times I tried identifying the particular songs). In addition, even if the song has lyrics, when it is shazamed the song has no lyrics at all within Shazam or the song does not use real-time scrolling lyrics within Shazam.

Shazam works great, but the Google app version is not as good as the apple - specifically, once found, the song will only open in apple music. if I've missed something, I'll redo my review, but at this moment, thumbs down.

I'm impressed!! I was watching a YouTube video of a livestream with this super catchy song that I could not discern lyrics of because this guy just wouldn't stop talking! I tried rewinding the video so many times, searching myself manually over and over before giving up and installing this app. Shazam miraculously came to the rescue and within 4 tries it found it! NIGHTCAP - "Young Love" in case anyone is curious 😄

After upgrading to Android 12, this app can't recognize any songs anymore. Please look into it. Done reinstalling too, testing on some well known songs I Shazamed before, but it can't be found this time.

Perfect for when you want to find a song, I think you can even hum the song and find it. I've used the app so many times, I almost don't go without it.

What the hell?! This is terrible... Idfk why the app instantly showing results whenever i turn it on, and the music is completely random.. and if you think it's because some song is playing on a background?.... Well, the parameter is completely silent, but somehow it's detecting nothing at all and instantly throws random songs on my face.

I've been using this app since day dot and now all of a sudden I can't hear some of the songs in my list, it sounds like an issue with my speakers the song comes and goes however its the app. It's extremely frustrating and this is definitely a shazam issue. You guys need to pick up your socks to resolve and fix this issue asap

I love that Shazam recognizes music in other languages and from other countries! And I like that it has the ability to 'listen' to music playing from within another app. The sync feature to save Shazam history is great, too! I appreciated it when I switched devices. GREAT APP!!!

Since itunes taking over shazam, it's becoming slow on detecting song.. been using this app after track id terminated and satisfied with it until recent update.. it seems that it cannot search song directly from YouTube anymore.. also taking longer to detect song.. Or maybe it's just me.. i don't know..

On Android it defaults to playing music in Apple Music an App I don't have, making it difficult to play in Spotify which I do have. Doesn't appear to be option to change to Spotify.

Tried it and it wouldn't discover the music even though it was quite popular. I held it close to the music playing device and everything. And unless you pay you can't listen to a song fully.

There no button to loop song like reapting it agian with auto repeat button so I don't have to go back and hope they add this and also cut songs half but I'm a gamer and why have people to suffer from this and making them pay for full music while gaming you know youtube's picture in picture doesn't work on most songs and 100% of songs are apple music and 38% of songs cant be played like there is no play button plus is more bad that song can't be identified and gives me wrong one even if I update

I've alwayz been a lover of ALL genres of music n as there seem to be more than ever b4...Shazam is my "necessity" to not miss out as I step into a room with something I hear n love yet do not recognize...thus with the quick hit of a button.. it's name is saved for me to check out later when I am back to my "free-time"!! Keeps my music interests up to date when I don't have the needed time to discover it all on my own!! So Thanks 2 Shazam 4 Keeping me "In tha Know"!!

The app is really good I had no problems with it when I had Samsung device with Android version 6 but now I have switched to a Tecno mobile phone running Android version 10.. the problem is the pop up doesn't open with one click I have to open the app everytime and then minimize it and search for the song I want to ...

I have used this app for years, and one day, my entire Shazam history was just gone. I also liked how you could see lyrics and song/album release date and info. Now you basically can do just one thing, and that's find out the song and artist. I understand that's the point, but why do you keep making it worse with each update instead of better?

It's easy to use and does a great job at identifying songs but since it's owned by Apple unfortunately it only supports Apple music when it comes to linking your scans with your music service. Hope it can support more music streaming services

Great app, how about the sound bite gets saved when it does not find anything and you can replay it again. This way I can find other ways to identify a song. Happens most when shazamming a song from a show and then it stops or they talk over it.

Worst app I've fount to recognize music... won't even do simple tasks, I have been relying on Google music recognizer which is by far better as it doesn't tell you a random result when it can't find the song your looking for.. go back to the planning board.

Become so bad Before, it was the best application ever. Always use it when listening podcast. Even can work with BT headset. Great. Then now, it is useless, so bad. Never find song, even simple one like U2 or Led Zep. Seems link with Apple bought it. They spoiled it. So shame

I have been using this app since it first started years ago. It was excellent for finding offbeat songs. Since it was purchased by Apple it has seriously gone down hill. It used to be fantastic at finding absolutely everything. It doesn't any more and I suspect it is only finding songs you can buy from ITunes. It also used to be just a straight up app that did what it said but now it seems to be more tuned towards trapping and compiling data. I'm currently looking for a replacement.

For some reason this app has decreased it's value like when the update announced that you can Shazam on what you're listening it would be identified. Two things that are bad, the headphone listen doesn't not after the update than before I've noticed that then another is that some songs that are official the results don't have the acquired feedback it's just "can't identify" or "we couldn't find".

I would NOT RECOMMEND this app to anyone, because I have played 4 different songs over 5 minutes long 2 times each and 1 time from start to finish and it DID NOT IDENTIFY/IDENTIFY This application is a complete waste of time. I suggest that Shazam looks more in South African music

The app started not identifying the television show last week. It finally connected at the last song of the first round. This week it would only list the first song played in the library. Unable to play the game and very disappointed! This was something we did as a family once per week. Will this ever be fixed where we can play along with the television show again?

It's almost unbelievable how good it is to find songs. I played less than two seconds of a instrumental song I wanted to know the name of and Shazam found it so easily! Less than two seconds, y'all. I'm genuinely impressed.

I'm a little disappointed with the app now, I used to be able to play along with the show but now all it does is look for the song and tells you what it is and let's you listen to it. I loved playing along. Maybe I'm doing it wrong. It's just disappointing cause I was looking forward to playing along.

This app is riddled with bugs. If it's not used for a few weeks, it just stops working. It will say that it "saves" your Shazams for a later time and acts like your internet is faulty when it clearly isn't. I'll try another app.

It is pretty good. I played some songs that aren't to popular and it still got them right. It also is able to identify the song through headphones (like if you are playing music through headphones it will still be able to pick it up.) I only gave it 4 stars however because at least for me it gets a little glitchy at times otherwise it is really good and simple, and is a great idea to help people recognise songs!! Would recommend 🤩

By using Shazam I discover a lot of new music and styles that I enjoy along with new artists. It is a MUST on my phone..I use mine with YouTube Music, another app I love. They are so awesome together... 🥰

Had to come and review cos for the past one week or more, I've not been able to shazam. It tells me that it has saved my song and will reveal when I'm online. I always have data and other apps are working perfectly fine. Please can this be resolved? Had to even update to the latest update and its still the same.

Why is the autoshazam not working? It only works if I go back to my screen menu and back on the app again. It should work even when I am not at the actual app right? Its ridiculous that I have to go out and back again to have the autoshazam working.
Average White Guy
May 21, 2022
The app is great for mainstream pop and rock but is wrong almost everytime you play something classical or of a non western origin. I hate the fact there is no way to rate how accurate Shazam is because the app just acts like it's right 100% of the time and it's not even close to that.

Really good and perfectly useful!....until now. I esp loved the offline feature bc I couldn't go online for indefinite periods of time... Then just recently I saved several offline shazams and when I finally went online, the songs were all found as usual and saved in the library— only for it to refresh just mere seconds later and after that they just disappeared like they were never there at all. Only one of those songs survived. I hope it never happens again, bc it's been really good otherwise.

Doesn't always find stuff. and that's fine, but the majority of the time it does saves the precious hours of my life it could take to single out a single moment in singular videos just to run it through a program to find a song. Here it's just crank up the volume, press 2 buttons, vwola baby.

When I use internet to find the title and artist of a song, the result comes in literally SECONDS! Very satisfied with the app. Especially because, unfortunately, radio stations like 96.1 and 104.1, no longer announce the title and artist, at the end of every song

I like Shazam for being able to identify unknown songs. But what I hate is that in the last couple of years it is virtually impossible to get your Shazam library to populate in Spotify. I've tried every trick I find online. None of them work.

I've used many apps for finding music but non of them can compete with "Shazam" Its verh easy to use,finds music faster than many music finder apps i know of and the pop up feature is brilliant I'd suggest it to anyone who is looking for a music finder app that consumes less memory and data

I love that I am *mostly* able to identify songs and save them on a Spotify Playlist. Widget option is choice (EASY TO ACCESS) while driving & saving songs. It's so fun to play the Playlist of Shazamed songs and get a great shuffle variety of all the different things that have caught my ear over the year. I often find myself in a 50/50 split between shazaming songs I'm familiar with just to add them to that Playlist and discovering new songs at live events/on radio while driving.

Good at "SHAZAM"-ING/capturing(most of)the songs I look for; but not as good(for the ones that have this option)at staying in sync, lyric-wise, with where I play the song(s)for a lot of them(they keep playing the lyrics the moment I successfully Shazam them and don't stop or reset until their finished, regardless of if I stop playing it and then restart). Other than the lyrics issue though, it's a great app

Love the app but it keeps using my mic after it's closed. Even though it's set to use only while open. I had to set it to not use the mic to fix the issue. Wich, as we know, just created more issues.. S.S20.

Can tell you what a song is no matter how small the artist is. It can get songs in less than a second. But Auto shazam often doesn't work. Which is when I often use it so it is really inconvenient

Good, and great. But it could improve abit more in terms of hearing or listening sensitivity. Also add on a wider pool of categories and genre that are outside of norm.

works almost everytime, it's like magic! Also, the feature to add your shazamed songs directly to a Spotify playlist is fantastic!

When the name of that song or the artist is right on the tip of your tongue, but just won't fully manifest and you know it will be bothering you all night, Shazam keeps us sane. 😂 This was one of the first apps I ever downloaded, and I've added it to every phones since. It's also perfect for when you hear an old song and there's one line in it that you always wondered what they were saying, as Shazam supplies lyrics for most songs, as well as information on the song, artist and album, and more.

it's the worst music search app. Google's music search feature is way better . It took 4 tries to search the correct song name , sometimes it cannot even find it even when Google can.

Absolutely loved Shazam! If you haven't tried it you you should definitely give it a shot! You'll be glad you did and also when you do decide that you like it.. Pass it along & tell all your friends about it. Also another plus & I really appreciate the fact that I can login with my email and still have all the songs I shazamed from day one. It's very convenient.

recently there's been issues opening the app, and when you're listening to a song in the store speed is king. but it's still a great app. takes 20 seconds maybe for it to get a hit.

I have given this app 2 stars for 2 main reasons. Reason 1: Apple bought it and now I cannot set Spotify or any other music streaming services as default. There is also a MASSIVE "Play in Apple music" button. I would instead like a play in Spotify button. Reason 2 is that the WearOS version of this app has really been shoved into the mud and doesn't even work. You go into the app, it plays an animation, then closes saying it couldn't find the song. Apple probably did this to promote watchOS.

I highly recommend this app as it will always recognise the songs that are playing and is good tbh. But I would like to recommend that it would be able to sync with more Google apps like ymusic and others. But other than that, this app is excellent. What are you waiting for? Download it now!😁😄

This app is one of humanity's finest achievements. Figure out any song that's playing! It's not always correct, nor does it know every song in existence, but I'll be damned if it's not close to it. I've had Shazam fail to recognize a track at a concert, then a week later got hit with a notification that it figured it out correctly. Shazam is the best

This app is the worst when it comes to listening to music coming from the same device such as a video and thats the main reason I attempt to use Shazam. Before I realize snapchat does your app better (suffers from same issue but is much better at identifying a song) 😅

I really love this app it does come in handy, but the only thing that I find as a problem is that they should have made it where it would just do one duplicate song, so it wouldn't take that much space on your phone and you should have organized by authors a-z

It thinks Human League is Robert Palmer. These aren't obscure songs. These are pop classic staples that the app should recognize easily. If I can't trust it to identify easy gets, then I can't trust it when I actually need it to.

I have no words to describe the quality, accuracy, timeliness of this app. Very clean, no ads, purely working for the sake of users. I'm using this app for years and it never disappointed be not even once. It can even recognise songs from very noisy and modified audio clip. The recognise from other apps feature is outstanding. I wish I could give this app 100 stars 🌟

The app is fantastic and it's very very easy to use and what i liked most about it is that you can actually use it offline, if that isn't wonderful i don't know what else could be. But the reason why i rated it 4star's is that you can't download a song straight on it you need to download an apple or something app which is totally a turnoff.

For some reason, the app doesn't work as it once did. A couple years ago, it was very accurate. Now, it can't recognise Classical music. To Smetana, the app calls it "Calming Ocean Sounds".

I've been using Shazam for close to ten years, and I only have one complaint/suggestion: it would be nice if Shazam could tell if we have the exact same song saved in our Library. I use Shazam to identify songs I want to download later and I have a habit of putting it off for a LONG time. To the point where I have over a hundred songs or more saved at a time. So it would be nice if the app could tell us if we had repeat Shazams on our lists.

It's 2022. Your app is still too dim-witted to identify songs playing on my bluetooth earphones. So if I want to identify a song playing via my Internet radio on my earphones, Shazam is completely useless. Some reports on the net say it works on Apple's Airpods. Really? How daft can you get?

Thank you shazam found the meme I was looking for. Update came back years later as a latch ditch attempt to find this song, I only had like 2 seconds of it and someone is talking during it. Opened Shazam played it once, and instantly it found a YouTube video with about 900 views. And it was it. Idk how it works but it's legit. Funny I came back a 2nd time to leave a review not even remembering I already left one years ago. Good app

Won't open. Keeps saying something associated with the app is disabled or not installed. I made sure everything was not disabled and it still wont open, what is it talking about? What do i not have installed suddenly when its worked great for years? Update: checked it a year later and whatever was wrong seems to have been fixed. Opened the app store and had to enable then update. Seems to function properly again. Thank you for the patch. Updated to 5 stars.

Shazam is the Best App! When a song comes on and I'm wondering who this is, just hit Shazam and BAM the song and artist will appear to my hit list. I Love It! It's quick, easy, and convenient. Not sure of the music your listening to HIT SHAZAM and your favorite tunes are right at your finger tips.

So, I shazam a song and didn't get a result, it keeps telling me that the song could not be found. So I gave up. After 2 days I received a notification saying "we couldn't find your shazam earlier, so we tried again." FINANLLY FOUND IT! "🎉. I mean not all apps out there do this, I really appreciate your work. Best app!! Nice work, keep it up👏

When I entered permissions I selected "only while using the app," so it turns itself on in my notifications bar after I've closed the app so it can listen in. Really sneaky move. I can turn off the notifications, but I can't trust it not to just randomly listen in on private conversations, so I uninstalled. Seriously, don't trust this app!

Really easy-to-use. Also work when you offline(its save until you online back to search it). This app really helpful everytime I heard every song that I don't know name of song (Such as album remix without song name[YouTube],radio station, broadcast and many types of music station)

I am sorry to say that is application is completely useless on the Samsung watch4. I have tried, with the WiFi turned on and the phone connected and near the watch, to play Coldplay's "Paradise" - a reasonably well-known song with a distinct melody - on a different device whose speaker was within 20 cm from the watch's microphone (which I made sure the application had access to while it was used). the result: "Sorry, we couldn't tag your music. Try again later?" Disappointing!

Used SoundHound for years, however it became really slow to open and the song or clip I was trying to capture would be done before it was ready to record. Tried Shazam and so far have been very impressed. Much faster finding the source than SoundHound ever was. So far, so good!

Love Shazam. 3 things I'd change: Option to turn off lyrics on floating app; Option to return back to main scan page after 5/10 secs; easier back-up & restore of all Shazams across platforms - phone & laptop (account would be good).

I just wish it worked with my Amazon Music account. I refuse to use any Apple products because itunes acts like malware on non-apple devices. For the most part, this does work well to identify music you hear on radio stations and on playlists at nightclubs, etc. Out of 20 Shazams, it only misidentified one song. I'll have to use this until Amazon adds a song identifier to their Amazon Music App.

Was a good app untill the last update,but now suddenly struggles to identify any song not on a top forty list from the last 25 years. It either will not be able to identify the song, or will identify it wrongly. I was testing it against popular and non mainstream songs from the 60s-90s(everything from elvis to four tops to green day)and it wouldnt even identify songs that it had been prevously able to(from above+some).Not sure what changed but would stop using this app if this is the new normal.

So simply and more accurate. Database is upgrading well with those new song lists. More convenient if you're subscribed to Apple Music (based my experience) , it'll sync automatically as a playlist if you been recognized the songs. (it'll works if you logged in on Shazam, and connected your Appmus or Spotify Acc)

I love when it works, but it often doesn't. Wont Shazam on data, thinks I'm offline, and loses about half the "offline" Shazams it "found" but they just disappear and don't get added to my list. No way to get support with it, just loops me to Apple support, which says idk download a troubleshooting app or CALL them. Lame.

Omg. I've heard this song on so many YouTube shorts for months. It's one of those songs you wish could play in the background of life. (Polozhenie Zedline Remix) Native english speaker - not a single discernable word. Shazam was a thing years ago when I was growing up but for w/e reason I've always just googled lyrics. Couldn't this time! Family is sleeping so I downloaded app on my newer phone, played a short on an old phone through earbuds, held to speaker. Took less than TWO secs. 20/5 stars

EVerytime I try to Shazam a song it now takes forever just 6o tell me it couldnt get the song, when the song is clear! Please fix this issue ! It was so much better before therefore I give it 2 stars for now. Compared to before I would've gave it a 5.

This is real good! Although Google is in God mode. It is good only if you are playing a song whereas Google is able to recognise just by humming, singing yourself, etc. but this app got ★★★★★ because it is able to auto save it and add to my Spotify playlist also 🤩. Also Auto-Shazam works moderately fine.

This app is mandatory. It's like air and water to me.. Some songs are memes, like cultural touchstones, everyone knows or is familiar with them. But I was in "college" (prison) for 12 years in E Texas with only a handful of radio stations and missed so much good music. This app is a tremendous time saver and makes everything accessible. :)

Very useful app, makes that one song stuck in your head come out and overall a very good app would recommend to have just in case. But it has 1 problem I've noticed, depending on the song you pick it can identify 3 different songs each time but not the one you're looking for 😅

They removed the lyrics feature...that s not an upgrade but a downgrade. Why?? Oh and I just read the new ratings. It looks like Apple music bought some of the features or what. I tried to shazam a song yesterday to sing along. No lyrics.. I was surprised. My colleague had the lyrics on her app like we used to have with Shazam. I was confused and updated my app. Still no lyrics. I asked her what app is she using, she told me Apple music lol. And it used to link to Spotify but now Apple? SUS

Shazam is honestly just such a good app to have, whenever you want to know a songs name it never fails to find it. There are no ads, no 'PLEASE RATE US!!!111!' pop-ups, it's amazing! My playlist has grown so much just because of Shazam and I've gone from having to remember the song lyrics and then type it into Google to just being able to take out my phone, swipe down, and then tap the little Shazam icon. Tysm Shazam, love ya! (10/10, would recommend :])

Awful! I don't know if this happens to others as well, but it's this glitch that when you play the track, it stops and plays again the song continously. And the worst is that you can't do anything about it, and if you search that song up and play it the same thing happens.

Amazing app, literally can find most of if not all of the earths songs. Also a couple things I can appreciate like when you tap and hold on the name of a song it puts it in your clipboard for ya, little things like that just make a big difference, saves all the songs and does more then expected. No I am not a bot or a sponsor the apps just good and im a happy hooman cause of this app, good job guys 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

One of the best apps to have been created for music lovers. After all one can only Google so many lyrics on Google to find songs. Don't get me started on lyrics you're not even certain about and the fact that you can't google a melody. All hail Shazam!

This app gets a five star for me for a few reasons. First reason is you know that moment where you hear a song and you can't tell what tf it's name is, that's a Shazam moment. While your listening to it on the radio just tap the Shazam button. If your like me and have your phone on ur dash as u drive put the Shazam button on ur main screen for less clicks and more paying attention to the road. My last reason I love it because my short memory there's a latest Shazam so Ik what it was later on to

I had at 5 stars for many years. Changed today 4/2022, months if not finding the search or song. Popped up incorrect music. Doesn't seem to find a beat (or music) to a tune in the background. Frustrating. This does not even seem like the same app as 2+years prior. I may as well continue to guess the lyrics and hit up a search engine..

Shazam id's most songs about 75% of the time with current device, yet the same songs that are missed are also recognized on different a device when side by side. Also from notification bar or pop-up bubble it can't id anything unless the Shazam app is open already running in the background & this is with a s22 ultra, my previous phone had no such issues. Hopefully this app will improve with the next update.

I had this app for years and loved it but Im really disappointed in the updates. As a Deaf person, I use(d) this app to identify songs I might not know (and do know!) and use the lyrics to follow along. It no longer has the lyrics available so it's absolutely become a pointless app. Really disheartening. 👎👎

most of the time it knows.I haven't figured out yet if it keeps a log of the Shazam's you shazamed. It would be nice to be able to go back later and use Spotify to hear what ever it was that caught my attention. Not sure what all this app can do other than name songs. So far so good.

🚨V.12.18.0-220331 You used to be able to add Shazams directly to one of your playlists on Spotify with the menu option (3 dots): "Add to playlist". Since Apple disabled the old app Shazam Encore, you are now only given the option to "open Spotify" for every Shazam. What a time waste!!😡😠😤😤. Also, the location details and the accompanying Google map that showed all Shazams is gone. Used to be available in older versions of this app. 5 stars 4u ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ when you bring it all back👍

It's a good app but when using the little bubble across apps it starts to get annoying. While listening for the long it will say "saved Shazam's" instead of telling me the songs or it actually doesn't save them to the library at all. Very strange pls fix , thanks. Edit. Most of the songs found I can't just open it in Spotify through Shazam I have to manually search for it in Spotify

I love the fact that all the songs I shazam are added to 'My Shazam Tracks' playlist on either Spotify or Apple Music depending on which app I've linked with shazam. I would love if the playlists were sorted according to genre instead of having everything in one playlist; The accuracy is also unmatched & I'm grateful for this! I've discovered so much music and new artists. 10/10 nonetheless because I absolutely love the app, and even more what Apple have done with it since they bought it.

Great app! Can find songs 98 percent of the time. But one thing is that the song has to be playing in order to find songs, you can't just sing the song that is stuck in your head. You have to have the actual song playing to search song.

Ever since Apple infested this app it has become toxic. It has locked it to iTunes. It used to add your shazams to Spotify, no longer. Yet another anti competitive move by Apple. Maybe it's time for Google or Microsoft to write a copy it. Maybe just google that tune. If you are apple groupie than you would have this installed, then it will match you apple car, your apple coffee machine and apple toothbrush.

Shazam is awesome! It sure makes identifying songs in movies... and end credit a breeze. Love it. It keeps me from wasting time looking on the computer.

Weird glitching sound playing music from it gets worse overtime. This has been a problem for a long time now and it doesn't seem likes it's going to be fixed.

What happened?! Used to be so good. Cannot trust it anymore. Often cannot find songs. Mostly use it when listening to jazz and classical music. I know all the classic rock titles, so don't need it when I'm listening to that. I have tried over and over on songs while they're playing and it just will not find them. These are not really rare songs either. Sometimes I will have to try countless times becausr it keeps spitting out wrong "guesses". Just happened 3 times in a row! 😳

0 for 5 match! This app sucks! While this app will tell you the name of some toilet bowl jingle from the 1950s, it is woefully unable to identifying music from the classical or local genres. It failed, for example, after a dozen attempts, to identify the very simple, Tchaikovsky's "Fantasy Overture" from Romeo and Juliette, a piece of music I've heard sampled in a dozen different television shows and movies. I usually give up on Shazam and move on but this omission from its library is pathetic.

I love Shazam but you need to fix it, although i enabled the "Shazam from notification bar" it only shows up for few minutes then when i look for it to use it again it disappears from the notification bar for no absolute reason. i literally have to open Shazam everytime for it to be on the notification bar again it's so annoying.

It is really good and I dont really see ads, it is also easy to use like you only tap and you get your favourite song, and it is so accurate, but sometimes it just really cant exactly find the song, well I'll rate 5 stars for being contented enough for not putting ads

I love this app. My personal music library has grown exponentially because even if I hear an ad or commercial on social media..I can capture it and save it. I just need to figure out how I can keep it on the screen at all times if needed. I've been able to overlap it onto other apps, but if i have to remove it i have a hard time getting it to overlay.

My favorite app to use when I hear a song and want to know who sings it or the title so I can easily download it.. always my go to app when I need any kind of information on a song or even an album! Anything you need to know about any song Shazam always finds it for me!🤗 My favorite thing about this app is it even has follow the music lyrics that are always spot on and always accurate!! Thank you, shazam!! I have tons of new songs on my playlist and couldn't have done it without this app!!!👏👍

App is great, but not being able to export tracks to any other app than apple music is a bit of a letdown. I'd like to export to Tidal, and I'm sure others would like to export to other streaming services apps as well. I paid for this app, but I guess apple paid you more.

Useless app, if you want to find out mainstream music it works, but if I try to search for a song in a dj mix or any underground music, it fails miserably. I used this app for so many years thinking that it will improve. Can anyone recomend something better than shazam ?

I LOVE this app. It is easy to use and navigate, is able to identify a song 98% of the time, and it stores your previous Shazams and allows you to listen to previews of them. It also saves recordings of a song when you have no data/internet connection so that you can still find out the name of the song later.

The app has stopped working, and is completely unusable. Since an update that I received over 2 months ago, as soon as I use the app to recognise a song, it automatic says that there's no result. Until this service breaking bug is fixed, I will be uninstalling Shazam and will be using SoundHound.

Apple ruined it. Before, integration into all the major music service platforms was seamless, now all it is is a revenue stream for Apple Music. Very slow and not as quick to identify now, basically they went back 10 years in app development with the Apple acquisition. Too bad the alternatives aren't better. Apple's UI influence is very apparent, and has ruined a once great app.

This app is almost perfect at identifying songs. I know the names of many other songs now because of Shazam. However, this app's only downside is that its not effective when there are background noises.

I've had Shazam for about 5 years. Each phone I get (which isn't many) I instantly download this app and put a widget of it on my home screen. Never had any issues. I love that it has the option for most songs to view the lyrics. It gives details on the artist and the option to go back to the list of songs you "shazamed". One of my favorite tools on my phone! You may get a "No result" but it's not often.

An older versions of the app, Shazam used to automatically add songs to a Spotify playlist. This made it very easy to use, as then I could quickly reorganize within Spotify as needed. However, now it seems like that functionality's been removed from the app?? Similarly, when the app finds a match, it used to show the button to quickly open in Spotify or add to playlist in Spotify. Now it seems like the only button that's available is open in Apple Music, and there's no way to change it?? 😡

Don't install the latest update, it's a bigger banner ad for Apple Music. It's a pretty good app if you have fairly commonplace musical encounters. But it's terrible with instrumentals; I could stand by a composition and Shazam it five times and get five totally different guesses, and I could keep doing it ad infinitum. I tried using the app to see if a busker was faking the violin and the results were inconclusive because I already know the app doesn't work well with instrumentals!

The best. Works perfectly well to the music I have been looking for. I've been having a hard time searching for specific songs with very little lyrics and with one use of this app, it was able to give me the correct songs. Amazing. Thank you!

I found the original Music that inspired the legendary "This is Sparta remix" and the app couldn't recognize it even though it had a solid 30s to listen and identify. After so many years and the loss of direct download the app still has a 70% success rate.

Good with broken features. You can connect it to Spotify, but it doesn't really accomplish much. It does not create a playlist of your Shazams for you. You'll have to build it manually one song at a time.

Won't stay asleep. Constantly starts back up after force closing, removing all permissions, turning off background data, and turning off auto shazam. Great app on the rare occasions you use it (maybe once every two years) but not worth the hassle if it's constantly pinging my greenify. Fix it I'll re-download

The feature to open links from Shazam directly into the Apple music app has stopped working. It previously would work without issue. Instead it repeatedly opens the Apple Music app in the Google Play Store. If I turn off enabling links to be opened natively to the Google Play Store, instead it opens to the Google Play Store in my browser. I have already linked the app with my Apple Music account. This is on a Samsung Galaxy S21. Please fix.

O stars. This is one of the worst apps to identify music. They've obviously been paid off for the one Shazam had when they first started out. Now they're just a lame piece of junk app left on my phone. Now I'm deleting this junk for good. Developers are non existent. Says a great deal. Bye

Works well most of the time, but often enough I get "No Results". I wish it was possible to type in the answer to teach your database, because I usually find it elsewhere (like rewinding the podcast or asking someone). There's also no way to send feedback through the app, so I'm writing it here for all. (Maybe I could if I sign up, but I don't want to.)

This app is essential if you're the type of person who's got your ears open for music everywhere you go. You might find yourself walking past a shop with it's doors open and catch the last 10 seconds of a song on a person's rich and storied playlist. This app retrieves the song title in a matter of seconds 90% of the time. Gone are the days of waiting until the end credits of a movie to see who's singing that weird nuanced cover of a classic.

This app have got to be one of the best tools ever invented. To be able to get the title of a song from the melody and/or it's vocals is so helpful. It is very user friendly and stores all of your 'shazamed' items. It also gives you options to enjoy your 'shazamed' items via other linked apps. The app is also updated on a regular bases.

Rarely have I been able to say, this is a fail-proof app. No matter if the song I'm shazam-ing is far in the distance, through the speakers in a loud supermarket, or even (the most impressive I thought), in the car next to me as I pulled up at a set of traffic lights. Even more than that, when you're offline or out of reception, Shazam will still find and save your search & store it so you can look it up next time you're back online. And all completely free, what more can you ask for?!

Out of all the apps in all the app stores, this is the one I use/love the most. I've never had it crash on me or slow down my processing speed, and it doesn't take too long to open, so I rarely miss a song I'm trying to get, and it only needs to "hear" like a second or two to buzz in with the info. Plus, only two of the 177 things I've shazamed have been unidentifiable. That's a helluva track rate, imo.

When sound hound fell on its face, I discovered Shazam which was even better. It never let's me down. Of course it can't possible identify everything from every genre. Especially unpublished music. But it's money 99 percent of the time. If results don't turn up, it probably just needs an update. 5 stars ✨

This app is really great, it works really well! However I have an issue with connecting it to spotify and anytime I try to link it, it will just keep loading and not do anything?! The annoying thing is that it will work fine for apple music but not the actual superior music streaming service... :/ edit: I'm on the update that rolled out on 31/01/2022 for any future readers.

This app used to be better for one reason: it actually added songs to a Spotify playlist (My Shazam Tracks) which it automatically created when I linked the two accounts. Now it won't add them at all, despite nothing changing on my end. I've checked my accounts and settings. Also, when the app asks for feedback internally, it literally won't let me rate it lower than a 7, then it just submitted my "feedback" when I was trying to change the number. Its music discovery is still great at least.

Sync between devices does not work (1 star). Song recognition is great (5 stars). When I got a new device and tried to sign in I realized there was a problem. So I had to write down all the songs I had on the old device library so as not to risk losing them before moving on. Then tried a bunch of things on the new device but confirmed device sync didn't work. I will probably try a different music discovery app now.

This app is trash. For some songs, the app only needs maybe 2 seconds to find but for the ones that actually matter, the stupid piece of garbage needs 5 hours, an instrumental sample, and a blood sacrifice before it can even find the damn song. I had a song playing for 3 whole minutes only for it to end. The app told me it couldn't find it. What makes it worse, is that the same song came on again, only this time, for some odd reason, it was able to find it. Worthless junk.

Best app I've ever used to snag titles and artist. Quick and hardly ever doesn't find a song. Sometimes it takes a few times to get the power song title for Japanese titles. But still works on them too. Love it. INDISPENSABLE APP! My only complaint is it's locked to the apple store and a few streaming services. All if which I refuse to use. So I can't really use the listen/purchase options.

It's nice app with lyrics those move along with the song as it plays and it's also easy to use. It can also record offline and give you the results when you are back online. I used to hear songs those i like playing on the radio and wanted to download them but sometimes it was difficult to hear the song title let alone the artist name from the announcer. Now i won't worry or bother anyone about who sang which song cause Shazam knows the answer.

Something is wrong with Shazam lately. By lately I mean over a year. At first I though it could be my phone or something but Ive since switched devices. It just doesnt recognize songs anymore, both popular and obscure. Not only, but it suggests totally different song and genres. I hope its fixable but its a shame to loose such a basic but fun feature.

This app used to work really well, but now it finds *maybe* 1 out of 10 searches, despite me holding my phone in front of my high fidelity studio monitors. My assumption is that the algorithm changed, but whatever the issue is I hope they fix it. Additionally, when opening a song in Spotify, I uaually have to delete characters like "&" and "(feat. Artist name)" because those attributes are not in the naming convention that Spotify uses. Please fix this, Shazam! Samsung Galaxy S20+.

Overall I like Shazam over the other choices, but there are a few issues that need to be addressed. First off, why is Apple music the only choice for music purchases? Seems really stupid on an ANDROID phone! And secondly every time I listen to the music sample for saved library songs the playback breaks up and sounds awful. No matter how good the network connection is. Please fix this!

This used to be a great app to sing along any song, but it seems that the lost perspective, only making the app less user-friendly, for instance before you were able just to swipe your finger from anywhere in the screen to the right to see the artist lyrics, info, videos. Now, to access the lyrics, you have to click a little link on the far top right corner, almost like preventing you from reaching out to it. Shame on the developers.

If you would have asked me about this app a few years go, I would have given it a 5 star rating. The app would pick up songs within seconds. But lately it feels like they have just gotten lazy in updating their music library. It takes up to 5 or 6 tries only for the app to say the song cannot be found. Most recently there has been a glitch where the lyrics of the song you have shazammed don't disappear from your screen even after you close the app and you have to restart your whole phone!

A very impressive library of nearly every genre of music. The app also continues to evolve in the look and access to additional features. Whenever, I use Shazam it's like I am getting a music tutorial. Recommendation: It would be fantastic to add an option of getting a biographical summary of the artist and a little trivia about the song itself. A very pleasing and entertaining app. Thanks much.

I probably use this more than any other app. Zero functionality issues over the years of frequent daily usage, and I just found out you can sync it with your spotify account to generate a playlist of all Shazam'd songs! My only suggestion to improve in future is lyrics for all songs (as of right now they're only available for some). Overall, super happy with this app. I would recommend it to everyone!!!

This app is so good. You don't have to ask for songs. All you have to do is open the app and tap the "Shazam" button that's in the middle of your screen and let the app listen to the song. That's it. When I first used the app, it took 10 - 15 secs to recognize the music but now, after all the updates over the time, it displays the results under 3 secs. That's pretty darn impressive... Good job developers..

Great app. Been using for a while, especially the Headphone feature. But apparently it has weird interaction with TWS. It seems like App doesn't listen to audio stream but to microphone. So it will recognize external audio instead of the one playing in your headphones (Galaxy buds 2 in my case). With no external audio it works as intentional. So 2 stars for now, but should easily be 4.

Not sure why people decide to ruin gold things, but Shazam used to be great, I could readily identify songs and new artists. Now it literally returns no results or completely incorrect music, wrong artist, wrong genre. For example, I was listening to house music and it returned drowning pool. Literally makes no sense...someone should be fired over this. You have a music identification app that doesn't identify music....time to find another app that actually works...

Based off of some of the reviews, my expectations were low, but I went ahead with installing anyway. I tested it by playing obscure songs to find the names of, it successfully found 4 of the songs, 1 being the wrong song, and the last 2 yielding no results. Another bad feature is that it keeps pushing apple music, even though I have an android. So 4 stars is my conclusion.

So far i have not found a song that this app isnt able to pick up. It works fast and even if you don't have wifi it will keep the song until it is able to figure it out. Very useful to use and the only complaint I have is sometimes the notifications will never leace my screen .

App worked great for years, opened it today and they've removed the lyrics tab. No idea why, was really the only thing I used it for, so it's basically useless now. Annoyingly it keeps prompting me to play a preview of the song I'm already listening to? Like you just identified the song because you could hear it, but instead of giving me useful info like the lyrics, you want me to play 20 second preview. K.

Too interactive. I don't need it to connect so much information. How about connecting me with the title of the song instead? Which is something it cannot do since Apple bought it. My guess is that it won't return titles unless it's on Apple Music as to not show Spotify has a better catalogue..and since A. Music is top40 cr4p mostly, then the app won't work. I could be wrong but this is Apple's Anticompetitive Playbook 101 as is that it doesn't direct link to songs anymore. PS. Apple; stop bothering Encore users about switching to keep receiving updates. Those should've stopped before you screwed up the app to begin with. If anything we need less features, or less useless features I should say. Let Encore go update-less in peace. Just don't pull a D-move and update the API "for security" rendering Encore incompatible as you do with everything else. This is why I stopped purchasing your hardware and most of your services. And, just in case there's one of the Microsoft employees that monitor other software to rip off, same goes for you.

Where has this app been all my life?!? I've had an unfortunate knack of listening to radio stations that play an eclectic mix of everything, but never give any information on the music they play. Then there's TV shows, movies, trailers, even freakin' commercials. No more fighting with Tunefind or Google (love both, but this is So much faster!). One tap, and there's the info. LOVE IT!!!
