CRAP APP 1/5
By ARSOLE APP
TOTAL WASTE OF TIME , ZERO TRACKS , STICK TO THE MOBILE , THAT AT LEAST WORKS !
Not recognising 1/5
Shazam on my desktop id’s poor recordings 5/5
It’s great, I just click on the little icon that stays at the top edge of my laptop when I want it to “listen” to id the music I’m playing in my video, captured during a class, and it not only gives me the name but a link to the actual piece.
Absolute garbage on a MacBook Pro 1/5
Keeps crashing. Has yet to find 1 song. Garbage App on a computer.
BIG HUG 5/5
You are so much great!
Sync across all devices 5/5
At present mac app is independent app.
Could you please implement sync shazams across all devices.
Put Autoshazam Back! 1/5
This is the worst updated i had to revert it and put downgrade it i hate this version!
Wrong most of the time (and always has been) 1/5
This app on has a terrible batting average as a desktop version. Use Midomi/SoundHound instead. That IDs songs very well.
no working in my mac 1/5
Worked fine the first couple of weeks but now it is dead
It works, but... 4/5
By LIV :3
Auto-Shazam used to pick up every single song, and now I have to actually click it for it to find the song. It's quite inconvenient.
so helpful when im watching a video and i dont know what the song is
my most favorite app 5/5
Should sync 2/5
By Tom Wolsky
Is My Shazam supposed to sync across devices? That's not happening for me. Without that functionality, the app is pretty weak. It'll lsiten to music playing around you, but chances are, unless you're sitting in Starbucks, you have a good idea what music is playing in your home.
For everyone complaining about there being no autoshazam, stop it. There is autoshazam. If you double-click the shazam icon it will activate autoshazam. You’re welcome.
Go back to full autoshazam 4/5
I downloaded this app so i can know every song playing at almost any time. With the new app, you have to manually click it and it only shazams the current song. Much preferred when it listened to every song it could catch. Love the redesign, but consider going back to autoshazam please.
New update just crashes instantly. 2/5
Shazam worked perfectly for the longest while until this new redesign update. Now whenever I click the Shazam icon on the top status bar to open the menu it shows for about 2 seconds and then crashes. Uninstall and reinstall made no difference.
Major Update 5/5
The last update is amazing, it works just as well as the phone version.
why remove auto shazam???? 1/5
bring back auto shazam!!! love the dark mode UI but bring back background shazam! 1-star until then
Won’t even open, crashes immediately 1/5
Won’t even open, crashes immediately. Creates crashlog on every attempt. Contacted Shazam’s tech support with it, heard nothing back. Unreal.
It works great but somewhere around 2 months ago I discovered a bug that causes bluetooth audio devices to malfunction when you connect and try to use them while shazam is on
i dont know why everyone's complaining, it works perfectly. 5/5
By Hammad Rizvi
it shazams songs i play through my speakers, even if there on the lowest volume, amazing to be honest.
doesn’t id anything, mic settings correct per their support page.
Works well with "Loopback" 4/5
If you want Shazam to work with music apps running on your computer you can use Rogue Amoeba’s “Loopback” app to make an output that you select as the “Input” in the sound control panel.
It would be nice if this functionality were built in.
Seemless Audio ID 5/5
This works in the background so fluidly I forget it’s there and get delighted when the notification pops up identifying everything from music, theme songs, soundtracks in movies, commercials, etc. The only issue I have with this Mac version is that it doesn’t sync with the account I use with the iOS app. That’s really a insignificant issue as all the audio I’d history is still saved on the Mac. 5 stars for delivering consistently great and automatic audio identification!
Pale Imitation of the IOS App 2/5
It works sometimes, but misses 70% of what the IOS app gets. Needs ridiculously long samples to find anything. Just not up to scratch given how well the IOS version works. Something has definitely been lost in translation to the Mac.
Works perfectly every time, i have enjoyed using this app for all music tagging and identification.
Works Perfectly 5/5
No problems. Some people seem to be having trouble. could be they have an older mac or something. Just try it out and see if it works for you.
Works great!!!!!! 5/5
No explenation, it works great
It only seems to recognize songs when I don't need it (I know what song is playing on my Spotify). Downloaded so I could discover songs playing on my phone from Snapchat, Youtube and whatever else. Doesn’t use mic.
Early review so hoping it’ll get better! Shazam mobile rocks!
All features down, one to go! 5/5
By Mady Meagen 77
It’s great, it can hear better than the phone’s version, it’s fast and easy to use, the login the only feature lacking, but still, we can now have some expectations from apple..
App is no bueno! 1/5
App doesn’t work. I tried many ways to make sure the song would be picked up… NOTHING! Going to uninstall :(
What happened to remaining time clock? 3/5
1.2.0 not working at all…
The small badge on Shazam menu icon is stuck… as if it is in endless loop..This update seems to be not fully QA tested. Not picking up anything… nothing at alll since this update came out… I wish I could revert back to previous…. Have to rate it 1 star till it’s fixed… earlier, I would rate it 5 stars but now 1.
Still won’t work on OS X El Capitan on 2007 iMac 20"
1.3.x on 27” 5K Retina iMac running macOS High Sierra
Works fine but misses lots of songs… and it now lost the remaining timer… I wonder… I liked this feature… I give this 3 stars till it reconigze more sounds efficiently and bring back timer then get 5 stars… why do I feel like I am extorting Shazam?
App doesn’t work!! 1/5
I used tp have Shazam on my Mac Book Pro. I had tried SEVERAL times to find out what songs were and each time the program NEVER came back with it. I made sure my mic was on and that it was picking up sounds but still, never recognized any of the music that I have used it for. It also has updated to the latest version. I thought for sure this last update would have worked but, even with the latest update I still get no hits and on popular 80s music as well. I can understand if it is some obscure song but these were all mainstream songs. Sorry this is such a bad review but, if they had created a better song recognizer the I would probably be giving a good review. That is if it even worked.
drains battery 3/5
When Shazam is in memory, it runs coreaudiod, which appears to run constantly at about 10% of CPU, which runs down my MacBook’s battery. Turning Shazam OFF in its popup window has no effect. Only quitting terminates the coreaudiod process. (High Sierra 10.13.5 with all available Software Updates applied.)
Wow - this is terrible 1/5
By chicago shopgirl
Installed on my Mac desktop and not only doesn’t it work, you can’t delete it off your computer because it says the app is in use (even though it’s not).
Useless button 1/5
Clicking on the icon does nothing. The application does not respond. Reinstalled with same results.
Downloaded on older Mac Pro - Won 2/5
The program works decently on my smartphone but on my mac pro isn't even launching and crashes silently (visible in the report for all message in the Console log). While it might be fine on newer macs, on a mac pro running 10.11.6 it's a 100% fail.
MacBook Pro App 3/5
I love the app when using it on my iphone, but I am dissapointed that the app for the computer isn’t as great. It does not pick up any songsa when I am using my headphones and it does not have the lyric part as the phone app does. Seeing the lyrics of my shazamed songs is what I love about the app.
This app is garbage, needs some fixing 1/5
I just downloaded it and immediately I started finding this app to be dysfunctional, I’ve been trying all sorts of remidies to get Shazam to listen to the song I’m playing but it seems that it isn’t detecting any songs, I tried numerous songs and at times it works but gives me the wrong song. I adjusted the mic levels and tried everything possible to make Shazam work but it’s just trash, I’m disappointed, it was so reliable back then.
Now that Apple bought it who knows?
doesn’t work at all! 1/5
For some reason upon installation I opened it, played a few songs, and nothing happened!
