Apple released a software update for iPhone and iPad earlier this month that includes a built-in music recognition button that can help you quickly identify the song that’s playing.

It is one of the ways she uses Apple Shazam, which has taken over 2018 for $ 400 million. You do not need to have Shazam installed for this to work. All you have to do is add a button to the Control Center menu and then, when you hear a song that you like and want to know the artist, just tap the button.

Your iPhone can recognize music with a single click in iOS 14.2.

  • Once the update is installed, open Settings on your iPhone.
  • Click on Control Center.
  • Scroll down under “More” and click the green “+” button next to Learn Music.

This adds music recognition functionality to the control center.

Click this button to select songs from your iPhone.
