Go Live Time
It generally takes at least 24 hours for tracks to be ingested into Shazam's system. However, on some occasions, it could take longer, depending on current ingestion projects.
Important to note: Shazam is not a digital store, and therefore does not ingest or recognize release go-live dates. That means you may be able to find your release through Shazam before its official release date.
Shazam is live in over 200 countries
