Your iPhone has a useful feature you might not know about. You can identify the song that’s playing on the radio at a bar, in your car or at a friend’s house, all without having to open an app. All you have to do is swipe down and tap a single button.

It’s part of the iPhone’s and iPad’s integration with music-recognition service Shazam, which Apple acquired in 2018. It’s been available for a couple of years but might be more useful now that people are out and about again. You don’t even need Shazam installed.

Your iPhone can recognize music with just a tap in iOS 14.2.

Here’s how to set it up.

  • Open Settings on your iPhone.
  • Tap Control Center.
  • Scroll down under “More” and tap the green ‘+’ button next to Music Recognition.

That adds the music recognition function to Control Center, which you access by swiping down from the top-right of your screen, or from the bottom of the screen if you have an iPhone with a Home button.
