Apple’s Shazam adds offline caching mode

Roger Fingas, AppleInsider:

When users tap the button to listen to a song, the app will now save a sample for upload when internet access returns. A notification should pop up once a result is ready. The Android version of Shazam previously had equivalent offline support.

“Apple’s Shazam”. Weird to hear, but yup, Shazam is now all Apple’s.

Smart addition. Glad to have this in iOS.

    Pretty sure this feature been a part of Shazam for at least a couple years.

    • Me too, unless it was removed. I used to use this all the time.

        Maybe Apple removed it just long enough to add it back in and call it a “new” feature. LOL
