No, I didn’t believe in magic until I used Shazam. When I first used this app, I was blown away by the high accuracy with which it recognized a song. Now the app makers have gone a step ahead and added Music Recognition history to Shazam’s arsenal.
I’m pretty sure you will also have your own Shazam stories where it helped you to find an unfamiliar song from any situation.
