About Shazam APIs

Who doesn’t love music? APIs like Shazam help people learn about the musical world around them by connecting them to databases that can let them instantly know a song’s name, artist, lyrics, and more.

What is Shazam?

The mobile app Shazam is available on both Android and Apple. It allows users to discover more about the music in their lives. At the time of this writing, there are more than one billion users on Shazam.

How does Shazam work?

When Shazam first started, inquisitive music lovers would dial ‘2580’ on their phones then hold it to the music sound they were trying to learn about. Within a short amount of time, they would receive a text alerting them to the song title and artist.

Today, it is the same premise, albeit faster. Say you are in a restaurant and can’t place the song playing, or you are grooving to it and want to learn more. You open the app, hit a button, and Shazam creates a digital file that it checks against its massive database. Within seconds, you learn not only the track name and recording artist but also the artist’s biography, the song’s lyrics, and even if any upcoming concerts are featuring the artist in your area.

Shazam works with many television shows as well.

What can you expect from the Shazam API?

When you use Shazam and APIs like it, the API sends either a GET or POST request to the database through secure servers. It then returns the requested metadata of the music to the originating server. All of this can be expected to happen seamlessly and securely without exposing any personal information from the user’s device.
