Your iPhone may be doing things you didn’t know. For example, it can recognize any music playing around you without opening any apps. A Control Center option enables this feature. It’s called Music Recognition and is powered by Apple-owned music discovery app Shazam. Apple is now improving this feature further. The music recognition feature can now sync with all Apple devices signed into the same ID, along with the latest Shazam app.
According to MacRumors, any iPhone running iOS 15 will now show you all the songs you watched using either the Shazam app or the music recognition tool in Control Center. The music recognition feature was integrated into the iPhone ecosystem as part of iOS 14.2 in 2020, three years after Apple acquired Shazam. The integration was so seamless that the user didn’t even need to download the Shazam app, while still using its search engine to identify a song.
But even though both the Shazam app and music recognition feature were letting users do the same thing, they fell effortlessly short when it came to data syncing. However, the latest push fixes that problem. If you ask Siri now or use the music recognition feature in Control Center to search for a song, you’ll be able to store it in the Shazam app, if it’s available on your iPhone, so you can access the app anytime later. can go on. and view or archive it.
There is another nifty trick that you can do now post the new update. Tapping and holding the Music Recognition tool in Control Center now shows a full history of your song searches. This includes both searches done using the music recognition tool and the Shazam app. History also syncs between all your Apple devices, provided they’re all signed in to the same Apple ID.
I use Shazam a lot because I’m always curious to know what that tune was playing in the bar. Previously, while I could find the searched tune in the music recognition device’s log, the Shazam app didn’t sync it. But now it’s going to be a lot easier. I can actually create a playlist on Shazam of the songs I find and it will automatically sync across my Mac and iPad.
iPhone’s music recognition tool can finally sync song history with the Shazam app which first appeared on BGR India.
