Your Shazams have a new look!

- Streamlined Results: Now when you Shazam a song, you’ll get the results and one big photo of the artist behind it—perfect for focusing on the music you were looking to discover in the first place. For more info, simply tap on the artist photo.

- Everything In Its Right Place: We’re excited to introduce an all-new track-result menu that makes it easy to view song lyrics, artist videos, updates and more in a single tap. Or swipe.

- Faster Playlisting: Connected to Apple Music or Spotify? ‘Add to’ playlist now takes one less tap. Simple!

Shazam for Apple Watch 2 stopped identifying songs
Suclarose on 3/17/2018
The app has worked well in the past but lately has stopped identifying songs. The app “listens” but then displays “We’ll tap you when we find a match” later it displays “Shazam Saved, we’ll name that song when you’re back online.
Works well.

Sequential song searching
VJB2 on 3/17/2018
Wish there was a way to Shazam songs one after another rather than having to ’X’ (back) out of the screen to search for the next song. Big distraction while driving .
Rocket, def leopard

Perfect as a widget
Humble easy on 3/17/2018
I’ve been using Shazam back when man first discovered fire. Shazam made me the man I am today, of it wasn’t for Shazam I’ll still be lost looking for answers. For those who’s reading this make Shazam a widget, trust me all your plays will be answered.

Thanks for the improvement. I am enjoying the app now. From Nigeria,west Africa
Poetically speaking! on 3/16/2018
Can’t do without it. A little annoying when it doesn’t recognize a song. Usually it’s a reggae song.🤣 The one thing I miss about Shazam red, is having the Shazam button on EVERY page. Still a great app.
Inconsistent At Times!
NY Dan! on 3/16/2018
I admit luving Shazam, but once in awhile it seems like it takes a little too long to give me the song title!! No worries! I Still Love It!!
Go back to ‘Start’
KarenTK on 3/16/2018
With each new version, there is less information. Early versions were better.
Much better than Soundhound
