    Buying Shazam is not about Apple Music. Surely the guys at CNET know this. Shazam is a key player in AR as well as obviously a market leader with their tagging tech. Using Shazam’s IP with relation to AR and ID tags to beef up their in house tech and leapfrog Google Lens is the goal with this.

    No wonder they delay the Homepod. Siri is really dumb to figure out what song is playing, along with everything else as well. Siri seriously needs an OVERHAUL.

    Am I the only one surprised that Apple actually had the courtesy this time around to buy them rather than steal/copy their stuff like they have done to other companies?

    Apple can't make their own music recognition so it buys an app xD

    For those of you that are freaking out and thinking that Apple will remove the Shazam app from Android, im pretty sure that the Apple Music app is on Android and its the exact same as in iOS. So don’t go making out theories and do some research 😉.
