Apple's latest Shazam update will recommend nearby & relevant concerts

Apple's music-recognition app Shazam will now show live music details when there is a nearby concert that's relevant to what a user has searched for.

Having already been used in Control Center over a billion times per month, Shazam has become a familiar tool for music lovers. But now it's added a new feature that takes it beyond identifying tracks and linking to Apple Music.

The latest update to Shazam will now also search for live concerts related to the the track being identified. If there is such a concert, and it is nearby, then details of the performance will be shown alongside the searched-for track.

"Shazam has a long history of innovation in music discovery and connecting artists and fans," said Apple VP for Apple Music and Beats, Oliver Schusser. "With the reemergence of live music, we're excited to give Shazam users access to concerts and bring even more discoverability to artists."

It's not certain what constitutes nearby, but concerts in a user's city are likely to appear. When such concerts do get shown, Shazam also presents users with the ability to buy tickets directly.

Shazam was first released in 2002. It was bought by Apple in 2018.
