Where to see the names of all songs that were recognized using the built-in Shazam in Control Center on iPhone or iPad
With the release of iOS 14.2 (iPadOS 14.2), the mechanism for calling Shazam was implemented through a special button in the Control Center. We talked in detail about how to add and use it in this material.
Here we will only tell you how to view the history of recognized tracks.
1. Install the Shazam widget button in Control Center according to these instructions.
2. Press and hold the Shazam button in Control Center until a pop-up window appears with your search history.

The intelligent voice assistant Siri not only answers the owner’s questions in the form of a dialogue, but also helps him in various areas of life. Thus, Apple devices can listen to and identify music played near them by integrating the popular Shazam application into Siri.
Communication with an assistant on this topic has become much more convenient and easier. It is enough to ask a laconic question: “Hey Siri, what is this song?”, and the correct answer will be quickly given.
But ease of use can become a problem over time. You use this convenient function so often that the melodies and their names turn into a big mixed ball. After a few days you realize that you no longer remember what you were looking for a little earlier. Luckily, there is a way to view all the requests you’ve made to Siri. The program stores the history of music requests to it in a special tab of the standard iOS application iTunes Store.
In order not to talk again about how to recognize songs using Siri, we will assume that the user has such experience and has asked the question at least once: “Siri, what’s that playing?”. If such attempts have not been made before, then it is better to try to do this before starting our short training course. Otherwise the list will be empty and there will be no meaning to it.
If you’ve recently used this feature, or you’ve accessed Siri before, let’s learn how to access a list of songs you’ve previously tried to recognize.
1. On the home screen, find the iTunes Store application shortcut and launch it. If you don’t have it, download it from the App Store.
2. Once launched, a blue icon resembling a numbered list will appear in the upper right corner of the application. You have to click on it.
3. A menu of three items will appear on the next screen A wish list, Siri And Preview. It is quite obvious that you need to choose the second point.
4. A list of songs that Siri has recognized and saved for further review, listening to Apple Music, or purchasing will appear.
This is pretty simple advice. The sequence of actions seems logical and natural in hindsight, but in reality, uninitiated users will not immediately take these steps to search for song history in Siri.
