Apple just updated Shazam to play nice with Apple Music Classical, making it easier than ever for subscribers to get a classical music fix.
If you’re unfamiliar, Shazam is an application that identifies music based on a short sample played and using the microphone on the device.
- Simply press the Shazam button to identify classical music and send it to the classical app.
- Works with iPhones running iOS 15.4 or later and iPads on iPadOS 15 and later.
Classical Music Heaven
- Apple Music Classical launched in March, growing from Apple’s acquisition of Primephonic.
- Boasts over 5 million classical songs, the world’s largest classical music library.
- Includes precise search results using composer, work, opus number, conductor, artist, and more.
The big picture: This update bridges the gap between two of Apple’s acquisitions, making it simpler for classical music lovers to discover and enjoy their favourite pieces.
Bonus: Did you know that Shazam got its start in 1999 — that’s right, over 21 years ago — as a text message service?
