After being acquired by Apple, Shazam introduces offline mode for iOS users


Apple announced last week it will acquire Shazam for $400 million, which makes the future of the music recognition app rather uncertain. Is it going to stay the same or Apple plans to integrate it into one of its own services?

In any case, it looks like Shazam continues to provide updates to its mobile apps, which bring important new features and improvements. Today, Shazam announced a new update for the iOS app, which adds a very important new feature – offline mode.

Basically, when you want your Shazam to recognize a song, but you don't have Wi-Fi, you can now tap the big blue button and the app will give you the name of the song when you're back online. Moreover, the app will notify you immediately, even if you don't have Shazam open.

Keep in mind that if you use more than one mobile device, you can sync your Shazam account between them. The new version of Shazam for iOS has already been uploaded to the App Store, so make sure to update to take advantage of the new offline mode.
