Shazam identifies a song by creating a unique digital fingerprint to match what you’re hearing with one of the millions of songs in the Shazam database.
Use the Shazam app
We would like to show you a description here but the site won’t allow us. Shazam is an excellent application that helps us find out the title of every song at the moment you're hearing it. The only thing you need to do is hold your Android phone close to the source of the sound and wait about five seconds for it to process the song. Login portal for SHAZAM customers.

SHAZAM ANYWHERE, AT ANYTIME. Use Pop-up Shazam to identify music in any app - Instagram, YouTube, TikTok. No connection? Shazam while offline. Turn on Auto Shazam to keep finding songs even when you leave the app. Find out what is popular in your country or city with Shazam charts.
If you have the Shazam app installed on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac, you can use the app to identify music and save them to your library.
- Open the Shazam app on your device.
- Tap or click the Shazam button to identify what’s playing around you.
When Shazam identifies the song, it’s saved in My Music, along with all your other previous Shazams.
After you identify a song, you can connect to Apple Music and other music services to listen to your Shazam.
If you don’t have an internet connection, the app still creates a unique digital fingerprint to match against the Shazam database the next time your device is connected to the internet. If a song can’t be identified, it will disappear from your pending Shazams.
Use Auto Shazam
To have Shazam automatically identify what’s playing around you, touch and hold (or double-click on Mac) the Shazam button . When Auto Shazam is on, Shazam matches what you’re hearing with songs in the Shazam database—even when you switch to another app. Shazam never saves or stores what it hears.
You can then find the Shazams identified with Auto Shazam in My Music, grouped together by date.
To turn off Auto Shazam, tap or click the Shazam button.
