How to use Shazam in Snapchat

Ever hear a new song you like but don’t the name or the name of the artist? Enter Shazam. Shazam has long been a popular app for identifying songs. Shazam users would simply open the open, tap “listen to song”, and in seconds the name and artist would appear on screen.

Now, Shazam has partnered with Snapchat to introduce the song identification feature directly in the app.

Steps to identify a song in Snapchat:

  1. Open the app and navigate to the Snapscreen where you can record videos or take a photo
  2. With a song playing in the background (it’s better to move closer to the sound source) simply hold one finger on the screen.
  3. Wait a few seconds and then a notification will pop-up alerting you that the song has been identified.
  4. Now either listen to the song in Spotify, Amazon or Apple Music.

That’s it!

Enjoy your new favorite song.
