If you’re like most people, there are a few songs that are just stuck in your head, no matter how hard you try to get them out. With this handy little hack, though, you can have your iPhone identify any song in the world automatically with just one tap. And once you’ve set it up, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it!
You might not be aware of a valuable function on your iPhone. Without having to open an app, you can tell what music is playing on the radio in a bar, in your car, or at a friend’s house. Simply scroll down and press a single button to complete the task.
It’s a component of Shazam, a music identification business that Apple purchased in 2018, being integrated with the iPhone and iPad. Although it has been accessible for a while, it could be more helpful now that people are getting back out and about. Shazam doesn’t even require installation.
Here’s how to configure it.
Log into your iPhone’s Settings.
Click on Control Center.
Tap the green ‘+’ button next to Music Recognition as you scroll down under “More.”
As a result, Control Center, which you can reach by swiping down from the top-right of your screen or from the bottom if you have an iPhone with a Home button, now includes the music recognition feature.
Once you’ve done that, you can use your iPhone to identify a song by hitting the Shazam button after swiping down from the top-right of the screen to reveal Control Center. After a brief listening period, your phone will display the artist and song title at the top of the screen. Additionally, a history of the songs you’ve selected will be saved so you may review them at a later time. Simply press and hold the Shazam button to accomplish it.
