Using the same Apple ID, tech giant Apple's music recognition feature in the iPhone Control Centre can now sync with the latest version of the popular music recognition app Shazam and across Apple devices.

Shazam has updated its iPhone and iPad app so that songs identified with the music recognition feature in iOS now sync with the Shazam app, according to reports.

For those unfamiliar with Shazam, the app is designed to listen to music that's playing, providing a song title and artiste for identification purposes.

Apple's iPhones and iPads feature built-in Shazam integration with or without the app installed, available through the music recognition button in Control Centre, and by asking Siri to identify a song that's playing.

According to the report, it was previously believed that the sync feature between music recognition in Control Centre and the Shazam app was limited to devices running the iOS 16 developer beta, but Shazam has now rolled out the feature to the current app for devices running on iOS 15.

Also new in this update, Shazam history is now synced across devices. Previously, long-pressing the music recognition button in Control Center only displayed song identification history for the current device. However, going forward, it will show all songs identified from any device signed in to the same Apple ID, regardless of whether it was done through the app or Control Center.
