How to do Shazam on Snapchat?

Answered by Jeremy Urbaniak

To use Shazam on Snapchat, you don’t need to have the Shazam app or a Shazam account. The feature is built directly into Snapchat, making it convenient and easy to identify songs. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do Shazam on Snapchat:

1. Open Snapchat: Start by opening the Snapchat app on your smartphone. Make sure you have the latest version of Snapchat installed to access the Shazam feature.

2. Camera Screen: Once you’re in the Snapchat app, you’ll be on the camera screen. This is where you can take photos or record videos. To use Shazam, you’ll need to be on this screen.

3. Shazam a Song: To identify a song using Shazam, press and hold on the camera screen. This will activate the Shazam feature within Snapchat. While holding, ensure that the song is playing in the background, either from a speaker or another device.

4. Wait for Identification: Snapchat will analyze the audio and attempt to identify the song you’re listening to. It may take a few seconds for the identification process to complete, depending on your internet connection and the complexity of the song.

5. Song Identified: Once the song is successfully identified, Snapchat will display the song title, artist, and album (if available). You can now see the details of the song on your screen.

6. Share as a Snap: If you want to share your newfound music discovery with your friends, you can send it as a Snap. Simply tap on the “Send” button, and it will appear in your chat or as a story for your friends to listen to.

It’s worth noting that the Shazam feature on Snapchat works best when there is minimal background noise and the song is playing clearly. If the audio quality is poor or there are multiple songs playing simultaneously, it may affect the accuracy of the identification.

Using Shazam on Snapchat is a convenient way to discover new music and share it with your friends. Whether you’re at a party, watching a movie, or listening to the radio, you can easily identify the songs and add them to your playlist.
