Why would you not have Shazam
There is no good reason to not have Shazam, unless you don’t have a phone. Anywhere you are, whether you have internet or not, you can whip it out and it takes seconds to get it running. It’s like you can actually have something that can tell you what that song is that you’ve been trying to find for years and you only barely remember the tune and it’s just come on in the shop you’re in and you panic and desperately ask if anyone knows the name of the song that’s on and you wish you had something that could record it and tell you what it is. In conclusion you need to rethink your choices if you still don’t have Shazam.
Sort it out!
For the last few weeks something has happened and I’ve lost a lot of songs on my Apple playlist via everything I’ve Shazam’d, everything is updated accordingly but something isn’t clicking between them both, I’ve tried a few avenues (un-sync, re-sync, disconnect Apple Music and reconnect it) even when I’ve lost the will to live and try make do with the list I got a day or two later that list has diminished again.
Before everything messed up I had at least 950 songs on my Shazam playlist via Apple Music now I’m lucky to sync 700 - at worst it’ll sync the very latest songs I’ve Shazam’d - so for instance today 5 songs on a playlist which should be closer to 960. 🤷🏻♂️ so what’s gone wrong? What’s changed? I’m getting pretty annoyed with it, all the songs were in a place I could remember, now, I’ve not got a clue. Pretty disappointed and pretty gutted about losing the songs via the app too. I’ve just checked my list on Apple Music and my playlist is showing 178 🤦🏻♂️ please sort this issue out. It’s not on.
Shazam - Always Good, if not Great
Shazam has always frustrated me - frustrated because technically it’s astonishing, yet could be so much better.
I mean, thinking back to when I was at school and mobiles were only just becoming commonplace, the idea back then that you could find a song simply by using your phone to listen to it would have been phenomenal, and still is when you think about it rather than take it for granted.
And yet, beyond that ability, I’ve never found Shazam to be all that. It deleted a whole load of old songs I’d Shazamed from the early days (which I’d assumed would be relatively safely stored!) and because I tend to use Shazam only for interesting/rare songs I’m unlikely to hear often, chances of me finding what they all were are next to none. It makes me anxious about using it as a permanent store platform.
Second thing is it’s not exactly easily integrated with other music apps/devices; really it would be nice to have added Shazamed songs straight into a playlist as soon as you get the answer - I’m hoping its integration with the Apple family could signal a change around of this.
Thirdly, quite simply I’ve never found the layout as straightforward and easy to use as it could be.
As mentioned, I’m hoping this could change with the recent news, and there’s very nothing that puts me off using it completely!
