The gallery view also extends to the lockscreen.

Apple is also taking Shazam systemwide with a new toggle inside of Control Center. The new toggle which can be added via Settings, Control Center. The toggle officially called “Music Recognition” allows users to identify a song that is directly playing on their iPhone such as from a social media video or ad.
