Use your iOS, iPadOS or watchOS device as a display for all your speakers. By using NowPlaying you can discover the story behind the song that’s playing. By using Shazam’s recognition technology we know what’s playing and look all over the web for details about the song. This includes editorial notes, where the song was recorded and even who played what instrument.

As NowPlaying's primary function is to display what's on, many iterations are made to get the cleanest look possible. Using the colours from the album artwork, we ensure the interface always matches the song's aesthetics.

Want to learn more about the song that's playing? NowPlaying is going to tell you all we can find for the music that's matched. Like editorial notes, where the song was recorded and even who played what instrument

Connect to Apple Music directly and take the hidden gems that you re-discovered with you to the digital era. By connecting to Apple Music, you will can save discovered songs to your Library or a Playlist.

Show the song you listened to last right on your home screen in a beautiful widget, and be able to re-read all about it at any time.

The most visual app on watchOS is here, turn on NowPlaying on watchOS and you'll see a beautiful display of what's playing on your wrist, and shows a minimised version of the song's details.

What's new in version 1.4
It’s here! One of the biggest updates for NowPlaying yet. A lot of new content plus many requested features and improvements. Including a fun way to unlock new app icons, Eurovision song festival winners, the ability to open a song in Spotify and more!

Another big change to NowPlaying is that it’s only available in English from now on…
The reason is very simple, NowPlaying fetches content from a lot of different sources for which I cannot control the language.
To provide an optimal experience for everyone I have decided to remove localisation for now until we can guarantee similar experiences for everyone.

- Unlockable App icons: Unlock 12 different icons by completing assignments (more to come)
- You can now open a song in Spotify
- Eurovision is added to awards
