The track information is presented in a friendly manner and well organized, as the tags appear in the order in which they were added. Thus, from the My Shazam section you can check out the song and artist names, as well as the exact date and time you Shazamed that music track,
The live tile is a welcomed addition because it will enable yo to view at a glance, right from the Start screen, which was the last song identified with the help of this application.

Tap and play to work the magic

Operating Shazam could hardly be simpler and the main functionality of the app can be accessed with one tap, regardless of the menu you are currently in.

In a matter of seconds, the result will be displayed and you will see the name of that song and of the performing artist(s). There are also some quick links to help you get the song from Xbox Music, view the lyrics or check out some of the video clips that are available on YouTube.

Hits & Misses


  • accurate recognition of songs after a few seconds of playback
  • unlimited tagging capabilities


  • images and lyrics missing for some music tracks
Bottom Line

The app has a smooth feel to it thanks to the nice appearance and the fluent navigation inside the GUI.


Shazam works really fast and the results are quite accurate, but there are many songs that are not included in the database.


The app is careful with user data altogether, but it will require access to some secure areas of the system.


The impact on the system resources is a bit above moderate, but only while the app is being used for longer periods of time.


The service can be freely used and users can add as many tags as they please.


Well suited for Windows Phone 7.5 and higher handsets, Shazam doesn't have any special demands in order to run properly.

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

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.

Shazam Phone Audio
  1. Open the Shazam app on your device.
  2. 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.

Can You Shazam Music From Your Phone

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

Shazam Sound From Phone

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.
