  • The Shazam Wear OS app has received a significant update.
  • Shazam on Wear OS can now identify songs without the phone app.
  • If the smartwatch is not connected to the internet, the app can now record the song and perform a match when an internet connection is re-established.

Shazam, the music-identifying app, just got a lot more useful on Wear OS. The smartwatch app has received a significant update that allows it to work independently from the phone app.

According to 9to5Google, the new and improved Shazam for Wear OS is now capable of identifying songs on its own. The Wear OS app no longer needs to rely on the phone app for this function, so you don’t even need to have the app downloaded on your Android phone.
