    Shazam disappeared from my watch face. So I look it up and it only works with os 4. But you have to be using iOS 11 on your phone to use os 4 on the watch.

    I have an iPhone 6, so I'm not upgrading to iOS 11 because it'll bugger my already slow phone.

    How stupid is this?

    To be fair, the Shazam watch app hasn't been useful until now because, before the most recent update, it would use your phone's microphone to listen.

    The devs built an incredible app that works standalone on a cellular Apple Watch, something great for the progress of the platform and you left one star - ugh. Sorry if it doesn’t work on the old OS, but Apple is changing a ton on the backend and if devs need to drop support to move forward then that’s how it is.

    I will be updating to watchOS 4 after I get my iPhone X which needs it to be paired with iOS11. Now i'm leaving my iPhone 6 on iOS 10, so i can't update to watchOS 4 yet

    iOS 11 is running fine on my iPhone 6 - haven’t notice any slowdown.
