    This wonderful app, is a must have app! It allows me to find music globally! I use it to find out who the artist is, from the singers to the backup musicians in the group. On radio’s, television, to movie soundtracks in the theaters! From all generations! Don’t know what I’d do without it! Saves my sanity, now that they’ve closed almost every record store in Hawaii! The hours I use to spend in my youth. Reading and researching all kinds of music, looking for something new to share with my family and friends. Now I have it all at my fingertips in seconds! With the option to watch in on videos, or download to my phone. I can share it online on my Facebook page, with my friends and family in the mainland. Along with the great island music, we have here in Hawaii! I can’t live without it now! So addicted! Do yourself a favor and download “Shazam App” immediately! Luv & Aloha Kathi Jo

    Although the app is not always accurate, Shazam has almost never let me down when trying to find a mystery song. It really helps me in a lot of situations, as I am a musician forever trying out new piece's. I definitely recommend Shazam as it is the most accurate app of its activity.

    I love this app. I can't express my gratitude towards this app in words for what it has given me. It helped me find my lost treasures(musics). Even the musics(especially background and transitional) with shorter duration(less than 10 seconds). Shorter audio clips are recorded by the app. Although it can't find the match immediately, within a minute it finds out the correct match. Just keep checking the offline music section.

  • It was perfect, until the updated started Oct 29, 2017

    By TiredOfBadApps
    I've had this problem with just a few apps...that I didn't just delete, or with whos developers I am still fighting to have them stop billing me; you get the app (and in this case, pay $4.99), it works great, and you really enjoy using it, or in the case of a navigational app, you depend on it. Then, the update notices start. And it sounds all good to you, so update. Right now this app has been in some state of suspended, useless limbo. The message states that "even though you have paid for this app," it cannot be updated unless you connect to your computer, open iTunes or whatever, Blah, Blah, Blah. I am no where near my Mac. Is this developed for a Mac computer, or for an iPhone? I must have been mistaken, because I thought it was the latter. Screw your poorly designed improvements, and give me back the original app. Too many app developers are travelling this road. It's highley problematic. Only a cell phone company could screw up a Mac product, and really, Mac, get a tighter reign on this kind of thing. You don't look open and innovative, you look stupid and out of control.

    Shazam really helps finding songs around you and also playing in other apps but what needs improvement is the user library, once we add a song to our library there's no option to sort our list in alphabetical order or any other order except the sorting by time (default), also there's no way to remove duplicates or search a particular song in your library to see if its already added or not! Please look into these suggestions and deploy them. Hope these inputs will help other users as well!

    I had to give 1 🌟 since no option for zero stars. I can't even deal with this APPLE update. I open Shazam on my Samsung S21, and keeps informing me to update app. I did update, but each time I try and open it it crashes. Doesn't open at all, system message, *app not responding* or *close app* I hate this nonsense. Why the heck has Apple 🍎 taken over Shazam if they aren't even going to ensure that it works properly.

  • Shazam Oct 26, 2019

    By Mrs Sweet Toe
    When I first got Shazam it was great! Then you did some upgrades and changes which were not so good; however several months later you did additional upgrades which again made the app great! However recently the app keeps blanking out on me will not retain my Shazam history and I am very frustrated by this as I am trying to retain my history in order to purchase music. I have at times Shazam music and found a new artist that I like and then purchased several songs by those artists later even introducing those artist to other people. The retained history is now too difficult to access! You need to repair the problems with Shazam or you will start losing customers me to start with! You are making too many efforts to try to get me to upgrade purchases to the product it is something that I, as well as many others, do not enjoy having foisted on us, so please stop keeping us from using our product simply in an effort to attempt to get us to purchase upgrades. Back in the day that was called a bait and switch and in most states is it legal! Make what we purchased user friendly and we will NOT be searching for other apps to ID and purchase new and old music!

    Shazam used to be good but now, I have NO IDEA what's going on with it. Shazam listens to the music to determine the song, but it'll be completely random songs! I recorded songs i already knew just to see if it was just one time but it's not. Also, Shazam doesn't know how to differentiate music in earbuds v.s people talking out loud. It is EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING especially when you really want to know the song and Shazam takes CENTURIES trying to figure it out, only to come up with no result.

    Slowly getting better. The recognition of some obvious songs are brutal. It either doesn't get it at all or takes 5 tries.. I'm starting to get annoyed that it doesn't detect songs as fast as it used to.

    Well, I originally left a better review hoping the app would eventually give me the correct song, but after (I counted) 26 consecutive HORRIBLY FAILED attempts to identify a song from my browser using the pop shazam feature, I'm giving up. Shazam works fine for one feature, and one feature only; you hear something on the radio and you tap the listen button. Otherwise this app has performed terribly for me...

  • Essential to my love for music Oct 5, 2018

    By “B” Porter
    I have used Shazam for so many years.. I use it all the time because music is a passion for me... music is a part of me.. my friends used to tease me in a restaurant or store If background music was playing & I heard anything that I might be interested in, but didn’t know who was making that beautiful sound.. I always whip out my phone & hit Shazam, I’ve built many of playlist from shazamed music, many times of music I would’ve never heard of if not for my ...shazamed from my Shazam’s... I am a fan if not a Shazam addict I’m sure there are other similar apps but I guarantee from experience this one is tried and true dependable!!

  • I LOVE IT SO MUCH I UPGRADED!... then lost 2 years of musical search history :-/ Jun 17, 2019

    By jobengals86
    Works fine. Everything has been linked with my Facebook since day 1. I used the free version for a long time, stored a bunch of history in there and then ... all i did was press the upgrade button because hey, screw commercials if you use an app this much, right? There's also ZERO distinction between the look of the app's digital cover of itself on your screen between the free and paid version - WHY? Neither the free or paid version are linked up with each other in any contiguous way; they’re just two duplicates of the same app, one with ads and one without. So after upgrading and linking all my musical accounts to everything ..... there’s no more history of any of my Shazams. Two stars because it works the exact same way as the free version. Don’t give them your money until they fix these issues; it’s MUCH more worth it to bear a few ads and commercials if it means having your Shazam history, at least in my opinion.

    This is a great app. I don't know how many times I've had a brain fart while listening to a song & not knowing either the song, the artist, or both (9 times out of 10 it's usually the artist I can't remember for one reason or another). I just simply tap on Shazam and put it by the speakers, then boom, I have my answer!🤘

    Getting bad since Apple bought it. The offline does not work most of the time. Requested so many time to link to Apple user which is boring as I am not. Good to have the choice of listening the music found from various of app (Deezer, Spotify...) Update: they update the app and does not ask to link to Apple account anymore. The offline is now working on the background without way to set up. I received a notification the song was found 20 days after tried. Updated to 4/5 from 2/5 stars.

  • So glad this App is here Jul 24, 2019

    By I'd hit it J Roc
    So glad that I bought this app. The free version was good ( I don’t even know if there is anymore? Was a while ago for me). I bought it because I just wanted a little more. To make sure I got the most out of it and it could save all my music finds. (Like I said it was a while ago and my memory is terrible)....... I gave it a 4 out 5 because sometimes the songs I tired to Shazam don’t get found. Maybe my location or cell service WiFi who knows. Or it could be it’s new or freestyle or something ? I have no idea.. Possibly be because they’re not “Shazamable”? Nun the leased I’m glad I have this app. I’ve Shazamed close to over 500 songs. Definitely worth. Get it!!!

    Shazam is a wonderful app however recently I have stumbled upon a problem. Whenever I try to shazam a song it keep showing "couldn't record audio, another application might be using microphone" I tried deleting the app and downloading it back but still wouldn't fix the problem. I went to setting and turned off any application that uses microphone and it still shows the same thing. I emailed shazam about this twice and I still didn't get a response back. Please help me to fix this. Thank you

    It's a good app the only issue is that when using pop up shazam it's not always one or two steps to get it to work. Sometimes its a long battle between turning notifications on and of. Although (even if all notifications are off) it'll magically work. You can restart your phone, the app, it's really annoying. Otherwise great application.

  • Missing auto Oct 7, 2017

    By Ashvic920
    You guys got rid of the auto button. I NEEDED that to tag the songs I listened to while driving! Update: I figured out the new auto button like a minute after I wrote this review, so I'm changing it to 3 stars. I'm still having an issue with push notifications. That hasn't been working in over a year! I've seen multiple FAQs about that and they all say to change it in settings. However, whenever I try to find the toggle in settings (both in the app and on my phones settings) the option isn't there. I literally have nothing that can turn on and off the push notifications! You will get 5 stars when you give me that option back!

  • Fair to Good application Nov 18, 2020

    By Me, myself, and I (1970)
    Really the only worthwhile application for identifying music and/or songs from different sources. Now, that being said, there has been a deterioration in the accuracy and/or ability to even identify music and/or songs for about the past two to three years. I am not sure what it is, or if it’s platform specific, but has been increasingly more difficult to identify pieces of music/song with this app., say within the year or two. However, since it is the only viable app available for this purpose. I just really wish it was more reliable ☹️🙄.

    This app is fairly decent. I use it to detect songs from edits of Instagram for my YouTube channel. But some songs barely work no matter how many times I tried. And you can clearly hear the music in the edit and it never can hear it correctly.

    It used to be good and would recognise most music, but now it has gone down hill big times. It no longer identifies music that it has done before. This is despite putting it right up to my speakers or at distance. It might be because Shazam has been configured to to only identify the garbage by Sony pimps such as Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh.

  • Latest Shazam update is horrible (v11.9.1) May 8, 2018

    By iomracer
    With the latest update of Shazam you cannot remove Shazam’ed songs. Your list sync’s with their servers and retains everything you Shazam’d, even if you used the ‘remove from my Shazam’ function, the songs come back. Also, when looking up artists it no long tells you how many people have Shazam’d that artist. But worse, you cannot just click ‘follow’ (or ‘unfollow’) an artist from that tab - you have to go to My Shazams and unfollow one at a time. At least the song recognition feature remains intact. I Shazam many less popular songs (e.g. those broadcast by KCRW) and it gets 99% of them.

  • Soundhound is so much better Mar 12, 2018

    By pookerella
    I do not understand why they wanted to destroy this app. It’s slow, it’s database blows and 60% of the time it doesn’t find what you’re looking for. Music isn’t only about what’s going on today, people. And even then, it doesn’t have the newest releases unless it’s major releases! All the alt and obscure stuff isn’t there, even in today’s music. And then Soundhound will find it. Maybe if Shazam didn’t spend all those years on TELEVISION NONSENSE, they would have a better app. But they did. And it’s not great. Used to be great. Not any more. #sad

  • It deleted my entire Apple Music Playlist Jul 19, 2020

    By timmy808
    I have been using the app for years. I have loved it until recently. I think a recent update did something to completely delete the Apple Music playlist that i had built with Shazam over the last few years. That is hundreds of songs over the course of years that are now completely deleted from my phone. It is a real shame because i really loved using this app.
