You're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to see what's trending on Shazam and find great music near you with an iPhone 6.
To get started, press the home button at the bottom of the phone.
Swipe across the screen and enter the passcode.
Alternatively, press and hold your fingerprint on the home button, which will unlock the phone. This will take us to the home screen.
Find the Shazam icon, which has two letter "c"s connected to make an "s", on a light blue background.
Tap it to open it.
We will then have the option use the camera or to turn on the option to have Shazam automatically listen while the app is closed.
We don't recommend that because it will drain the battery quite a bit.
We're going to be using "Trending" and "Explore", which are the two options on the right-hand side of the bottom menu bar.
We will tap on "Trending" first.
Here we will see what is currently trending on the Shazam charts.
For example, the global chart. It gives us an idea of what's popular in the world right now.
To see more, tap on "SEE ALL".
There's a hip-hop chart, country chart, dance chart, pop chart, etc. We will tap "SEE MORE" for the global chart.
Here we have the list of songs.
Next, we want to tap on "Explore".
This will open a map.
On this map, we will be able to see music everywhere.
For example, we can see the music trending in Armenia.
We can see the music trending in Georgia.
We can zoom out and look where ever we would like.
There's quite a bit happening in Japan and China.
This just lets us see what's going on in the world. It's a helpful tool to find music we may like, especially if we like a particular style of music, such as Spanish music. We will be much more able to find that type of music with this application.
To find out what's exactly near us, we can press the location button.
We will need to have location services turned on. Let's show how that works.
When we press the location button, we are told to enable our current location in our settings.
Press the home button to close the application.
Tap on the settings icon.
Scroll down and tap on "Privacy".
Tap on "Location Services".
We can see it is currently off.
Tap on the switch to turn it on.
Location services has now been turned on.
Double-tap the home button.
That will show us our open applications.
Tap on the Shazam application.
Now we can tap the location icon.
A prompt will appear.
We need to allow Shazam access to our location.
Now, we've been taken directly to our location.
From here, we can zoom in to get a better idea of what music is close to us at the moment.
We have some things happening in Tbilisi and some things happening a little farther out.
If we zoom in more, we can see more options.
If we're in a major city anywhere in the world, chances are we will be able to find interesting things to listen to or go see, thanks to Shazam.
This concludes the tutorial on how to use Shazam to find trending things and explore musical areas and interests near you.
