Apple-owned Shazam has just released a Chrome extension that works to identify what’s going on in your “Netflix or YouTube video, that Soundcloud mix or Twitch streamed video game”, but it’s still for all users. Does not work
After installation, Shazam exists in the Chrome Extensions drop-down menu to the right of the address bar and can be pinned just like the others to always have on hand.
Tap the blue icon to open a rectangular pop-up and ask for another “click shazam”. While listening, you are told “Do not update or close this tab”. Once identified, Apple Music has a shortcut to play the entire song (login required), while you can “get songs, music videos and more with just one click”. On the main page of the plugin is a drop-down menu for viewing your “Shazam Browser Song History”.
It is not possible to log in to your Shazam account and sync previously identified songs on your phone. It will be very useful. The extension was released in late 2021, according to reviews from the Chrome Web Store.
Shazam just seems to have announced its existence on the Android app update website and list. One reason may be that it does not work for all users in any way.
The Shazam extension, after testing on macOS and Chrome OS today, fails to find a match even after one minute. (No failed status shown.) Similar songs on YouTube and SoundCloud are quickly identified using a mobile app. That said, some users in the reviews say they’ve done it.
This extension compliments the Shazam Mac app, which was last updated in February 2020. The Chrome offer could be a new desktop strategy as it provides wider reach.
