Shazam update adds relevant and nearby concert recommendations

Apple-owned music identification app Shazam was recently updated to recommend nearby concerts for those who may be interested in live shows from discovered songs and artists.

The latest version can now search for live concerts related to the user’s identified song, complete with the date, venue, and location. Oliver Schusser, Apple Music and Beats VP says Shazam has a history of innovation connecting fans with artists, and with live music resurfacing after the pandemic, Shazam users can access concerts for even greater discoverability.

Concerts associated with the song may appear in the user’s city. In-app users can also tap the link to sign up or purchase tickets for the said concert. To see the feature in its entirety, it is recommended that you download or update the app to the latest version.

Shazam was the first music identification app and was released in 2002. In 2018, Apple bought the company for $401 million.
