How to Use Shazam to Play Spotify Music Rather Than Apple Music.
On your iPhone or iPad, you can easily identify any music that is playing around you by saying â€œHello , Siri. , â€And ask what this song is. After you define the song, Siri will also give you the option to listen to the entire song in Apple Music. But has a little problem, Siri only offers a link to Apple Music, so if you use any other music service, say â€œSpotifyâ€, you have to manually open the Spotify app and find the song … As always, there is a workaround.
While you cannot change the default music app on iPhone, we can still use Siri shortcuts to our advantage. Let’s see how.
Use Shazam to play Spotify
This Siri shortcut, created by Reddit user u / zeeshan_02, uses the Shazam API to find a song and then lets you open the song in the Spotify app. Go ahead and install the shortcut from the routine site sub.co.
You will receive a warning that the shortcut is not trusted, you can ignore the warning and click “Add untrusted shortcut”.
You will be prompted to set up the shortcut the first time so that it works smoothly later. Click “Continue” to continue. Select the music application of your choice. I use Spotify, so I chose it. Click Finish to complete the setup.
The shortcut is now installed and ready to go. Just open the Shortcuts app, tap the Shazam ++ icon in the list, and point your iPhone at the music. You can also ask Siri to launch this shortcut for you by simply saying â€œHey Siri Shazam Plus Plusâ€. Once it detects the music, it will show you a list of actions you can take, click Open Link.
Select Spotify and v iola music you just opened with Shazam plays on the Spotify app … You can save it to your playlist or add it to your personal album.
It was a quick way to find and add songs Shazam discovered to Spotify. I agree that this is not an easy method, but it is still much better than the traditional one. If you have any doubts or questions about this method, let me know in the comments below, or email me on Twitter.
