Since the release of iOS 14.2 in 2020, iPhone has included a music recognition feature built into Control Center powered by Shazam. And starting with iOS 16, which will be released to all users later this year, the feature has received an upgrade.

As noted Twitter user @someone_andrewsongs identified with Music Recognition in Control Center finally sync with the Shazam app.

It’s also still possible to view a list of previously identified songs by long-pressing the music recognition control in Control Center, but syncing with the Shazam app is a useful addition for those who rely more on the app, which is free on the App Store.

Apple acquired Shazam in 2018 for $400 million and has been improving the service ever since by removing ads from the app and more. In September 2021, Apple announced that Control Center’s music recognition feature had surpassed 1 billion cumulative recognitions on iPhone and iPad since its launch.

Music Recognition can be added to Control Center in the Settings app under the Control Center menu. From there, scroll down and tap the “+” button next to the “Music Recognition” option, which shows up with a Shazam logo.
