    Now, we are looking for the Shazam icon
    .
    The Shazam icon is a blue box with a cloudy background. There will be two "You" connected to form an "S" in white inside of this box.

    The first thing we are going to need to do is allow a Microphone check on Shazam
    .
    This is an essential part of the application, so let's tap on "OK".

  7. 7
    Now, we will be told that ""Shazam" Would Like to Access the Microphone"
    .
    We can select "Don't Allow" or "OK". Shazam needs the microphone to be able to recognize music, television shows, or other audio around us, so let's tap on "OK".

  8. 8
    Now, when we are ready to use Shazam we just give the Shazam icon a single tap
    .
    The icon will have the words "Touch to Shazam" underneath of it. We can see there is also on an update at the top on how to use Shazam with a barcode or QR code scanner. However, that is not the focus of this tutorial.

  9. 9
    Before we can "Touch to Shazam", as it says on the screen, we need some music for it to recognize
    .
    For this demonstration, we are going to start playing a song. Bonus points to those of you who let us know in the comments what this song is before Shazam does. Once the song starts playing, we will press the "Touch to Shazam" icon.

  10. 10
    Shazam will now begin listening to the song we are playing
    .
    As we can see, Shazam has discovered the song, "Sweater Weather" by The Neighborhood. That is how easy it is to use Shazam to check out a song. We simply play the song, tap the Shazam button, and off we go.

    If we do not want to have advertisements such as this "PROFIFOX" ad, just tap on the box labeled "UPGRADE FOR NO ADS" to upgrade to the paid version
    .
    It is not that expensive. We have a tutorial on how to do that, so make sure to check it out.
