Remember back in 2008 when Shazam blew everyone’s minds by being able to recognize songs played on the radio? Shazam innovated the music industry so much that Apple bought the company. Now, the Cupertino-based tech giant is introducing the app’s software as a built-in feature of iOS 14.6. We have to mention that the app was first integrated back when iOS 14.2 released but now, the ability to recognize songs is available directly from the Control Center.
iOS 14.6 Introduces Native Support for Shazam
When Shazam was introduced as a built-in app for iPhones, users were automatically redirected to the app’s official website whenever they wanted to identify a song. Now, they don’t need to visit the website anymore. The reason why we are saying that is because iOS 14.6 has introduced the feature in the Control Center.
What’s cool about the integration of Shazam into iOS 14.6 is that the process of identifying songs remains the same. This means that the only thing users need to do in order to recognize songs is to access the Control Center and tap on Shazam’s shortcut.
Furthermore, Apple is allowing users to share the song on social media platforms or via iMessages directly from the Shazam UI (user interface). Another cool feature that iPhone fans can access directly from the Shazam app is the song’s lyrics or to have it play on Apple Music.
From the looks of it, Apple is introducing a bundle of cool features to iOS 14.6. On the downside of things, the update is currently available only to developers and beta users who are enrolled in the Apple Beta Software Program. However, the much-anticipated iOS 14.6 is expected to release via OTA (over the air) channels this week.
