Early Snapchat users will remember the days when filming a snap while listening to music was impossible.

Snapchat has come a long ways from those early days.

A partnership with Shazam made the messaging app into a way to discover and share music with friends or watch music videos.

Here’s how to use all of Shazam’s features in Snapchat:


Open Snapchat and press a finger on the screen until Shazam opens up. If the song title and artist is all you’re looking for hit dismiss. To listen to the song, hit song info.

Use the app of your choice to listen — or, if you’re in the mood for karaoke, scroll down to see the lyrics.
