Shazam bring their music identification to the web, as well as update the iOS app with a fresh new design, smarter notifications and charts redesign.

The new web Shazam application is currently in beta and works on Safari, Chrome and Firefox on macOS and Chrome OS.

The iOS redesign puts music discovery first, with a large “S” button front and centre to start Shazaming. Swipe up to go to My Music and see all of your past Shazams. Shazam Charts are now available through the Search tool.

Connect Shazam to Apple Music to sync more of your past Shazam. Deleting a song from Apple Music will ensure it isn’t added again. Connect to Spotify to find and sync more of your new Shazam. The app will try to sync again on your next Shazam if connection is lost.
