If you want to install and use the Shazam app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Shazam in the search bar and press Search. Click on Shazam application icon. A window of Shazam on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

  • Just want more exact live or version recognition

    By kevk74
    I’m an audiophile, put together high end vintage equipment home stereo and home theater and love live music and those long 7min+ songs that are your entire TRIP in the car, not those 3min 09 sec “radio edit” versions and appreciate and immediately recognize when it’s NOT a radio/studio version that has been beaten into my head with repetition and has different changes and musically unique versions instead and 9 out of 10 times I need Sound Hound to capture exactly what I’m hearing, even if Shazam will pick it up and give me the general album or song but not the “Live at Red Rocks” with some date, etc. I live for hearing new version of the same song even if I do sacrifice some fidelity in the process. More importantly I want to know where to find it again! I really am a “Shazam Guy” first, just it those instances I have to go searching for SoundHound in a race before for the app buried in my apps before the song ends! Help me out Shazam. Make it a one stop shop!
  • It is the technology I have been waiting for since 1990...

    By Johnny Andres Parker
    There have been songs that truly have been ingrained in my life since 91' where I never knew who the hell was the artist or song. On a tv show, a random commercial, etc. that have slipped through my fingers and traveled onward into the dark distance. I never caught the artist or the song. And I would sing these songs carving down the mountain or riding a wave internally for all this time.. When Shazam came out it literally changed my life on this earth. I finally have found what I have been searching for. You Shazam have found what I have been searching for. Now I use it anytime I feel moved in hearing a song at a store, a party, a commercial, a Movie. It has made me a better person. We are finally entering an age where the shadow of the sun is no longer. I beckon the suns musicals waves with the power of Shazam! Thank you my friend! You are a beautiful creation.
  • Wham Bham Shazam

    By An English/Art Brain
    I’ve used Shazam since I got my first iPhone back in 2011. Overall, it’s been super helpful, especially when I’m in a store or somewhere that I can’t just ask what song is playing. However, I’ve been frustrated with the app the past several times I’ve used it. First off, the app was slow to launch. Secondly, once I pressed the Shazam button it was then slow to figure out what the song was. In several instances the song ended before the app even started Shazam-ing. That was super annoying, but I just figured out how to set it to start Shazam-ing upon launching. Hopefully will fix the problem. (And hopefully it’s not just that my iPhone 6 is just senile.) Another feature that I just discovered for myself is the ability to connect Shazam to my Apple Music app! It even adds a playlist of all my Shazam-ed songs. Since I subscribe to Apple Music I can listen to them immediately and whenever I want.
  • Shazaman! Searchin!

    By allen enriquez
    I’ve been using Shazam for over 10 years I barely thought about giving it a review. Not that it really needs it, because many people already know about the app globally. It’s the best app to see what artist/tv/movie/radio is playing! I remembered when I first used it when 3G was barely the next gen with it at these speeds it made it so much better to search for the details without any needs to going the the webpage or anything else it is at your fingertips just one click their is a way to say “Shazam” to start the searching. I am not to sure if it works with everything. Most o the type I find my self just using Siri to do most of my stuff while moving around. It’s a very useful app because you may what to know what movie someone is watching or a friend my want to know without interrupting the movie they can search seamlessly!

    Shazam is there for me when nobody else is.
  • Too bloated with pop up garbage

    By Jimmyc345
    Wanted to capture a track playing on a local radio station and totally missed it as the stupid app popped up a screen wanted to see if I would recommend it to a friend. Used to be great but the commercial turds have ruined it.
  • Great app love using it

    By Afbf1314
    Love using this app when I hear a song I like!!!!! My kids and play beat Shazam in the car.
  • Basura

    By Robertvolcompr
    Ya llevo más de 2 meses que Shazam no me Reconoce ninguna canción y no es el micrófono ya que SoundHound funciona espectacular arreglen eso o la borro

    By PAPALOLO976
    Alot of the songs that are played. The TITLES or ARTISTS cannot be found.
  • Great, but needs work connecting songs to Spotify

    By k.bug.
    Often when attempting to open a song on Spotify, the song title will be typed incorrectly with symbols and asterisks instead of the song title, and I have to type it in manually. Not a huge issue, but certainly a glitch. Otherwise, a very useful and efficient app!
  • Album Preview

    By therko27
    Love this app!! Works well and is accurate for the most part!! It would be nice after discovering a track to be able to view all of the other tracks on the match’s album in a list view to see what other tracks are listed on the matched album. Other than that, love this app!!
  • Live lyrics delayed

    By nescb
    Live lyrics are always delayed
  • Easy to use

    By Natural Born Eater
    Love this app. This is the easiest way to build custom playlists, always finding new artists!
  • Fix the following please

    By Ari R 1709
    1) Get more songs. Different songs have different remixes and y’all don’t have a lot of variety. I can’t find many of them. 2) Have more less known artists on your app because they’re the ones we are most likely trying to find. I couldn’t find a lot of the people I tested the app with. 3) Make on easier way for us to find songs on apps like Instagram. I don’t need to find the song in YouTube or in Spotify because they already have the names and titles.
