Shazam Integration on Apple Watch

With the WatchOS 6 release, Apple integrated the Shazam music identifier service along with the Siri for Apple Watch. Even though the Siri on iOS has the same feature since 2014, the Siri for Apple Watch was a simpler, lighter one. Unlike Google’s music identifier on Google Assistant, the Shazam integration on Siri makes it much faster and handy to use.

In order to get the Shazam integrated Siri on your Apple Watch, you need to update the Watch to the latest WatchOS 6. You do not need to connect your Apple Watch with the iPhone to use the music identifier feature always. If you are using a Cellular Apple Watch, then it can alone identify the songs playing around you on the go. On the other hand, with Wi-Fi only Apple Watch, you have to connect it to an iPhone or Wi-Fi connection to identify songs.
