Shazam Promotion Offers Users Up to Five Free Months of Apple Music

Apple is offering up to a five-month free trial of Apple Music to new users of the streaming service, with the promotion appearing in the company's Shazam music identification app.

Apple usually offers up to a three-month free trial of Apple Music to users who haven't subscribed to the service before, so this latest promotion represents one of its best deals yet.

To access the promotion, download the Shazam app on your iPhone or iPad, then identify a song that's playing in your environment by tapping the big Shazam icon in the app. After recognizing the song, you should see the option to play the track in Apple Music.

Tap the option and you should see the five-month free trial offer of Apple Music appear. Some users have also had success activating the promotion by opening Shazam's options screen and tapping the Apple Music banner.

According to Shazam's App Store page, the offer runs through January 17, 2021, and is available in the United Kingdom, United States, Australia, Canada, and other countries.

If after activating the deal you're not convinced, you can cancel your Apple Music subscription without losing your five months of access to the service.

Shazam is a free download from the App Store [Direct Link].

Mine says 4 months free. I’ve lived without Apple Music this long, not sure I even care to try it at this point.
Same for me up until now. But after a trial where I really investigated many of the music recommendations and made use of the catalog, especially for thing I actually liked but never listened to, I enjoyed and will stick with it.

I have been offered trials many times with my purchase (by Apple, by Best Buy and others) and never used them.

I hate subscriptions in general but find music services like this useless for me, the music I want I already own, it is in my computer, my iPod and I sync it to my iPhone... if something good comes up I will get that one specific song I liked and sync it too. As simple as that.

Another trap, as with the Apple News+ offer?

meh I’ll still with Spotify. AM kept recommending a specific genre (you know the one they are pushing hard..) that I hate no matter how many times I told it not to play that type of music. I would always try to slope 2-3 of those songs into my playlist
