Apple-owned Shazam was fully integrated with iPhone and iPad last year with iOS 14.2, which introduced a new toggle to identify songs directly from the Control Center. Now, with iOS 14.6, Apple has extended that integration and turned it into an app clip with song information.
With the previous integration, the user was redirected to Shazam’s website once they pressed the button on the control center to identify the song. Now that experience is more like a native app thanks to a new Shazam app clip that comes with iOS 14.6.
For those who are not familiar, an app clip is a small part of an app that is quickly downloaded to the device so that the user can experience the app and interact with it without having to download the full version. from the App Store. This feature has been available to developers since the introduction of iOS 14 and now Apple is embracing it in its own apps.
The process of identifying songs using Shazam remains the same. All you need to do is go to Control Center and tap on the Shazam icon (you can add it here through the iOS Settings app). Now, instead of getting a notification that redirects you to a website, you’ll see song details through Shazam’s Clip app.
From there, the user can easily share the song through other apps, access the lyrics, play it on Apple Music, etc. There is also an option to download the full version of Shazam directly from the Clip App.
iOS 14.6 is currently only available to developers and users who are part of the Apple Beta software program. The update should be available to the public in the coming days.
