Apple today updated its Shazam app with Split View support for the iPad, allowing the Shazam app to be used alongside another app in a multitasking view.

shazamsplitview
Using Shazam in Split View can be done by dragging the app to the left or right edge of an already open app to enter the Split View mode.

Today's Shazam update also allows users to delete Shazams by swiping on them in the list view that's available in the Library section of the app.

Shazam for iOS has been owned by Apple since 2018, and Apple has made multiple improvements to the app in that time, including making it free to download and use.

Shazam is available on iPhone and ‌iPad‌, plus its functionality is built into Siri and powers the feature that lets ‌Siri‌ identify songs that are playing when asked.

That's worthy of an article?

App owned by Apple. Took two years to make compatible with iOS 9!

I hate how apps have to explicitly support it. It should ‘just work’

What a ridiculous way to waste half your screen, especially when you can just ask Siri
Siri takes over the entire screen...

Shouldn't this article be asking why it took apple so long to add split view to an app they own, rather than just copy and pasting their press release?

Presumably the POINT of this exercise is not to launch Shazam and catch a song, it's when you want to go through your Shazam's and do something about each song you have noted in the past. Decide whether to buy it, look up if you have it in your library already, etc.
Ie you want to compare the Shazam list against some other app in the second window.

PLEASE think before these knee-jerk criticisms. Nihilist know-nothing cynicism is fine in teenagers, it's a lot less attractive in adults.
