iOS 16 version of Shazam allows songs ID’d by Siri to be added to Shazam App Library

Apple has updated Shazam to version 17.3; it now lets users identify songs around them or even within apps while wearing headphones.

Apple has updated the iOS 16 version of its Shazam app. It adds a new feature designed to allow songs identified using Siri to be added to both the Shazam App library and the Music Recognition History view in the Control Center. 

Shazam is a music recognition app that Apple acquired in 2018 for US$400. Last year it passed 200 monthly active users worldwide. It’s available as a standalone app and as a built-in feature on the iPhone and iPad.
