How to Shazam music in Snapchat

You can quickly and easily identify and save songs playing around you using Snapchat.

This feature is available for all iPhone and Android users of Snapchat.

  1. Simply hold your finger on the screen for a few seconds until music notes appear.
  2. Swipe over to the music icon on the left of the filters.

From here you can ‘Listen’ to the track in full on your streaming platform of choice or bring up the ‘Song info’ for lyrics and a preview. Note, to have streaming services (that aren’t Apple Music) such as Spotify, Deezer or Google Play Music as options, you must first connect Shazam and the platform. Tap the three white dots in the top right corner to access sharing options. This is a great way to promote your own music on Snapchat.

Siri has the same functionality. Simply ask “Hey Siri, what’s this song?”.

Get your music findable on Shazam and many other streaming platforms for free.
