Apple-owned Shazam is the most popular music-identification service in the world. Starting with iOS 14.2, your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch can identify music playing around you or in apps via Shazam-powered music recognition available from the Control Center.
Apple’s music recognition app Shazam has been updated to take advantage of new iOS 14 features like picture in picture support as well as the Back Tap shortcut feature. Shazam was updated to. Two years after completing its $400 million acquisition of Shazam, Apple is showing developers what the technology can do when it’s integrated directly with iOS.A version of the iOS 14.2 beta that’s currently in testing includes the ability to add Shazam’s Music Recognition in the Control Center panel. How to use the new Shazam Music Recognition feature in iOS 14.2 and iPadOS 14.2 Apple has now built-in Shazam Music Recognition directly into iOS 14.2 and iPadOS 14.2. You just activate it in control center and use it from there. Find out what music is playing on your iPhone, inside any app, using Shazam’s built-in music recognition. In the past, iPhones could only identify music playing from external speakers. But with iOS 14.2 and later, your iPhone can identify music playing right on the device.
In a nutshell, if you’ve got the iOS or iPadOS 14.2 beta installed:
- Go to Settings > Control Center
- Tap the green + to add Music Recognition to Included Controls
Do that, and you’ll see the Shazam icon in Control Center. Tap it, it’ll do its thing.
Me, I ask Siri:
Ios Song Recognition
“What song is this?”

Both seem to work equally well. I’m guessing they fire up the same exact bit of code. The Control Center approach is much more subtle if you’re in a room with others. Good to have both.
