The easy way to use Shazam on your iPhone without downloading the app
Apple launched some ground-breaking new emoji in iOS 14.2 in 2020, including the “frustrated Italian hand gesture” and bubble tea. Additionally, Apple slipped in a very useful feature: the ability to add Shazam song identification to your iPhone’s Control Center. Most importantly, you do not need to download the Shazam app in order to utilize it. You can access this feature directly from your lock screen in a few simple steps.
Shazam is the song recognition program that made us all feel cool when we received our first cellphones. Suddenly, you could inform your entire group of pals about the song playing in the bar simply by opening an app and waving your phone in the air. Much more recently, Apple acquired Shazam in 2018, making the app free for all users and eventually integrating its astonishingly accurate music recognition feature directly into iOS – you don’t even need to download the app to use it.
Indeed, you do not need to unlock your phone to use Shazam, which comes in handy when you’re pressed for time to identify a song on the radio before it ends. It’ll even work if you’re listening to music through your headphones. If you’re using iOS 14.2 or later, you can use these methods to impress your friends and utilize Shazam directly from your lock screen.
Make Sure that Control Center can be used even when the phone is locked
