How Shazam Works To Identify (Nearly) Every Song You Throw At It

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/05/10

The basics:

  1. Beforehand, Shazam fingerprints a comprehensive catalog of music, and stores the fingerprints in a database.
  2. A user “tags” a song they hear, which fingerprints a 10 second sample of audio.
  3. The Shazam app uploads the fingerprint to Shazam’s service, which runs a search for a matching fingerprint in their database.
  4. If a match is found, the song info is returned to the user, otherwise an error is returned.
