Shazam Gains New Look, Notifications for Missed Shazams, and Trending Charts [Update: Shazam Web App Now Available]

Shazam has today been updated with a new design, notifications for missed or offline Shazams, global trending Charts, and sync improvements.

Shazam 14.2 brings a refreshed look to the music-discovery app, with a simpler swipe-up card to access your past Shazams and an improved design. Shazam will now actively search for a user's missed or offline Shazams and notify them when they are found.

In addition, users can see what is trending with Charts, now available in Search, to see what is trending globally. The feature provides specific trending lists with up to 200 top songs for countries, and even specific cities, around the world.

There have also been improvements to sync for both Apple Music and Spotify users. For ‌Apple Music‌, the app will now sync more of users' past Shazams, and if a user deletes a song in ‌Apple Music‌, it will not be added again by Shazam. For Spotify, the app will now find and sync more new Shazams. If Spotify users lose connection, Shazam will now attempt to sync again during the next Shazam search.

Apple acquired Shazam in 2018, and has been gradually bringing the app into closer alignment with ‌Apple Music‌ ever since.

Update: Apple has also launched Shazam as a web app for this first time at shazam.com, as spotted by 9to5Mac. The website has launched in beta and is currently only compatible with Safari, Chrome, and Firefox on macOS and Chrome OS, allowing users to check Charts and identify music directly from a browser.

What the heck is a missed Shazam ?
A song you heard where Shazam was unable to identify it, either because it didn’t recognize it, or because connectivity trouble kept it from uploading the snippet. It can go back and fill these in later now. Cold case files for songs.

Shazam is one of my favourite apps just because I can be out and hear a piece of music that I love and would otherwise have no chance of identifying.

However... there needs to be a way to save your searches to a personalised account. When my phone last crashed it lost years of searches and there's no cloud account to retrieve them from.
iCloud sync has been available on Shazam for quite a while.

I don’t use Shazam much, but every time I do, I feel like it looks completely different.

Is it just me, or do they overhaul this app a lot?
