Although there is no web-based version of Shazam, there are many web-based alternatives.
Here are our top 3 web-based Shazam alternatives:
1. Midomi: Our top choice is Midomi. Midomi is a web-based platform that allows you to easily identify your favorite music simply by using your laptop’s microphone. You just need to sing or hum into the microphone. The service will analyze the sound and return information about the song. You can also play an audio file to your microphone to recognize the song. Midomi is also an owner of SoundHound, a popular music identification app for Android & iOS.
2. AudioTag: AudioTag is one of the oldest music libraries with over 3M recognized songs. To use AudioTag you need to upload an audio file (15 to 45 seconds) or provide the URL to the audio file (from Youtube) to identify the music. After you are done uploading the audio file, you need to confirm you are human. After 1-2 minutes AudioTag will compare your audio file to its database and identifies the song.
3. WatZatSong: WatZatSong is more like a social network for music identification, or as they call themselves “social naming community”. To use this service you need to create an account and post a music clip on the website. After that other users jump in to identify the song. This service is not AI automated, it’s fully based on human knowledge, so you can expect to be a little slow. However, you can get great results for rarest finds.
