Shazam, the popular application that identifies music can now play your identified songs inside the YouTube Music app. Previously, the app allowed you to listen to the identified songs only using Apple Music, thus leaving you to its monopoly.
Shazam was acquired by Apple back in 2018 and because of the acquisition, the app used to open the songs that it identified in the Apple Music app only. But this has now changed for good, letting you play songs inside the YouTube Music as well. However, the capability is not just limited to just YouTube Music as the app lets you open the songs in Spotify as well.
Tapping the overflow three-dot menu shows the number of options, including the ones to play songs in third party streaming services. The menu also lets you remove any song from the Library of identified songs, share, or flag a song. Previously, the Shazam included Google Play Music service alongside the Spotify but with the former service set to shut down very soon, YouTube Music integration is replacing it.
The new addition of the third-party service saves some time that you would otherwise waste in manually digging through the app and looking for the song that Shazam has just identified.
