Popular Music-tagging iOS App Shazam Updated With Auto-Shazam, More Sharing Options
Those that use the highly popular Shazam (or Shazam Encore) music-tagging application for iOS will be happy to hear that the application has been given a useful new update. Thursday’s update brings the application up to version 7.3.0.
The update gives users the ability to take advantage of Auto-Shazam, a new feature that will continuously recognize music for you without the need to tap on the Shazam button. Auto Shazam can be enabled or disabled at any time, depending on the user's preference, via the new switch that appears at the top right of the Shazam home screen:
Auto Shazam can continue to recognize media even when you close the application and leave it running in the background, or when you lock your device while Shazam is open on your iOS device.
Shazam has also been given improved sharing options, such as the ability to share Shazam tags with your friends on WhatsApp messenger, the ability to pin Shazam tags on Pinterest boards, and the ability to share Shazam tags via iMessage or SMS.
Existing users of either of the Shazam applications in the App Store will find the update for free under the Updates tab in the App Store application. Alternatively, you can download the latest version of Shazam for free from the App Store via this link
