Shazam has set the Windows version of its music recognition software. Already installed apps continue to work. However, Shazam points out that future versions of Windows may change this and render the app unusable.
There will not be any updates, so Shazam. Even if Shazam writes that the app since February 7, 2017 can no longer download from the Microsoft App Store, this is still via the direct link software.
As Windows Central noted, Shazam was never a real app for Microsoft’s Universal Windows platform, but an app-packaged web application. The development effort should therefore have been limited. Still, Shazam decided to stop the app. In the fourth quarter, Windows was installed on only 0.3 percent of all newly sold smartphones. This may be the rash.
The few remaining Windows smartphone users are left without music recognition: Microsofts digital assistant Cortana also recognizes music titles.
