With Instagram Stories integration, Shazam users can now share a song they discovered directly to their Instagram Story. To do this, simply Shazam a song, choose the share button, and choose the Instagram Stories option. As you can see in the above screenshot, once you post a song to your Story, viewers have the option to tap through and view more details in the Shazam app itself.

Now you can share your Shazams to Instagram Stories. Once you’ve found a song in Shazam, hit the share button and choose Instagram Stories.

Apple officially completed its acquisition of Shazam back in September after nearly a year of regulatory approval hurdles. As part of that acquisition, Apple made Shazam ad-free. Today’s update is the second major update to come to the app since the Apple acquisition was completed.
