Shazam is a mobile app owned by Apple that identifies the songs it hears.
Shazaming, however, is not considered as streaming. Shazam sends its data to radio stations for them to determine a song's popularity in the state/local areas.
Therefore, if you want your station to play BTS's promoted track, consider turning on your actual location to let them know you are here!
How to Shazam
Download and open the app
Play BTS's promoted on your phone or computer, either on the same device or a different one as long as Shazam can hear it. [Tip: you can plug in your headphone and loop it so that the earpiece is next to the mic while the song is playing]
Tap the Shazam button and wait for it to recognize the song
Using Android devices, you can Shazam the same song as many times as you want, if you always CLEAR DATA after EVERY Shazam. See tutorials below.
If you do not CLEAR DATA, your Shazams on the same song will only be counted once per 24 hours.
APPLE PRODUCT UPDATE - There have been recent changes to Shazam on Apple Products and it appears that clearing data no longer works and that only one Shazam per song - per day - per Apple device will count.
What is Shazam?
Why is Shazam so important for BTS and ARMY?
Will Shazam help BTS on radio regardless of what country I’m from?
Yes. USA radio stations have access to data for both national and worldwide Shazams. Furthermore, radio stations all over the world consider Shazam data before playing a song, and some even play countdowns of songs from Shazam charts.
Do many people use Shazam?
The app has been downloaded by people 1 billion times. In a 2016 Forbes article, it is said that Shazam is used 20 million times worldwide, daily.
How do I make MULTIPLE Shazams count in a row?
What do I do if it stops letting me log out on iOS/iPhone?
This can happen if you Shazam too many times in a row very quickly and will no longer count if you can’t log out. You must uninstall and reinstall the app.
I’m clearing my data after every Shazam, but the number is not changing. What should I do?
I followed your directions for clearing data, but my Shazam history reappears when I log back in. Are my Shazams still counting?
Yes. On some versions of the Shazam app, the history does show up again, but as long you are still following the correct steps from the tutorial, your Shazams will still count.
Can I Shazam two or more different songs in a row?
Yes, for example you can Shazam Mic Drop Remix, then the comeback song, and THEN do the steps to clear data and they will both count.
How often should I Shazam?
Can I Shazam continuously through Snapchat, Siri, or by Auto-Shazaming?
Through these methods, only 1 Shazam will be counted per hour. We currently have no evidence showing that it will count more than once.
Should I use VPN to Shazam if I am not in the US?
