With just a few taps on the screen, the app immediately lets you know the title of the song that you are looking for. To do this, launch the app, tap the Shazam button, and hold your device close to the music source for a few seconds. 


Shazam will then process the song and attempt to match it up with a song on the app's database. Once it has found a match, it will send you a list of songs that are similar alongside the title, artist, album, and much other information. 

If you're interested, you can save or even buy the song to add to your playlist.

Search for Songs Any Time, Any Place

You can use Shazam to find the song that you want at any time of the day. You can connect your other devices such as your Apple Watch to the app so you can use the app at any time, anywhere you are. 


Even if there is no connection, you can still use Shazam offline. All you need to do is to turn on the Auto Shazam feature so that it continues to find the songs that you want even when you close or leave the app. 

It is a very convenient app to use to find and listen to songs even when you're disconnected from the rest of the world.
