Apple prepares for deeper integration of Shazam in iOS | Music Ally

Apple has only just released the latest major update for its iPhone software, iOS 14, but it’s already hard at work on forthcoming minor updates.

iOS 14.2 has been released to developers, and it includes a significant music feature. Apple’s music recognition app Shazam can now be added to the iPhone’s ‘Control Center’, and when switched on will identify music playing around the device, but also in apps running on the iPhone – even when the owner is using headphones.

It’s the deepest integration of Shazam into Apple’s software since it completed its acquisition of the app in September 2018. There’s no confirmed release date for iOS 14.2 yet, so for now the new feature can only be tested by iOS developers.
