Until now, it was possible to add Shazam to Mac thanks to the macOS version or by using the tool via Siri. Briefly, macOS Sonoma will have a native feature when version 14.2 is available. The same thing happens with iPhones or iPads. Apple is expected to release macOS Sonoma 14.2 by the end of the year.
Apple bought Shazam for $400 million in 2018. Since then, the music identification service has been developed to be integrated into the company’s services. With the official release of iOS 14.2 came a new function integrated into the Control Center that allows the user to identify songs with one touch.
Starting from 2016, the music recognition feature with the Control Center was added to the Shazam application. In 2023, Apple Music started supporting Classical. Finally, expansion to other Apple operating systems began in the same year, and news on this is still awaited.
