Online Shazam – is it possible to identify songs online?

We have all heard of Shazam App by now, but we know it as an app for mobile phones. Many a times users are looking for Online Shazam or in other words they are looking for the same functionality that is offered by the app called online Shazam. You will run into many sites that will say that they can identify songs for you, but I am yet to see something working.

Is Online Shazam impossible?

Well, if you don’t mind me being a bit cheesy then I’ll say “the word impossible itself says I’M Possible”. This is true in this case and that means you can have online Shazam. But developers of Shazam want people to download their app and hence they have not made it possible to use Shazam online.

Being a tech-savvy person I know that it is not difficult. They even have an app for Mac (discussed in next section) so they can definitely create an app for PC as well. However, this will cut into their app downloads and hence they don’t want that.

In order to make Online Shazam possible, they need to simply access your mic to record your input, then compare it with their own database. If an entry is found they can simply return the identified song. There is no big deal in doing that. But they have not done it yet and I doubt if they are planning to do that.

Online Shazam alternatives?

Talking about alternatives to Online Shazam, the first thing that comes to mind is Shazam for computers.

You can get Shazam app for your computer and instead of looking for Shazam online you can avail the same functionality on your PC.

If you are an Apple fanboi and use a mac even then you are good to go. Shazam has an app on the Mac Store for Mac users so you don’t even need to look for Online Shazam. You may be using any of the Mac computers, including Macbooks, Macbook Pro, Macbook Air or even iMac or MacMini this app will work for you. You can download Shazam on the Apple Mac Store.

Midomi – Online Shazam with little less accuracy

Another alternative would come from the next big music app Soundcloud. Did you know it was known as Midomi earlier? Well, if you go to Midomi’s site you can hum or sing a tune and it will find you the song you are humming.

This is not as accurate as Shazam to identify a song, but it is better than nothing at all. Also, during our trial we noticed that if you sing for about half a minute the accuracy goes up significantly. So give it a try if you are looking to identify that tune stuck in your head.

That’s all people. That’s what we had for you on that topic. If you have a question or need or have any more information on Online Shazam please do leave a comment. It is always appreciated.
