Apple has restored the classic ‘Music Quiz’ iPod game via the Shortcuts app on iOS 14

Once you have an iPod with a click wheel, you can think of a mini game called Music Quiz that can accurately guess which song is being played. With the help of iOS 14, Apple has quietly restored the game as a complex shortcut – and it works just like the older version running on iPods.

The Music Quiz on iPod plays several songs in shuffle mode and gives you five different options for choosing which song to play. The shortcut version of this mini game is quite similar to iOS 14, as it plays random songs with five different answer options.

The music quiz in iOS 14 is part of the “Starter Shortcuts” folder, which provides four separate shortcuts that show users what they can do with the app. To find and play music quiz on iOS 14 or iPadS14 running on your iPhone or iPad, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Shortcuts application
  2. Tap the “My Shortcuts” tab
  3. Use the search bar and search for “Music Quiz”
  4. Tap the “Music Quiz” shortcut
  5. Allow shortcuts to access your Apple Music library

Since the mini game only works with the system’s native music app, it requires purchase from iTunes, sync from a computer, or music from Apple Music. Once you run a music quiz you need to turn on the volume of your iPhone or iPad to listen to your songs and guess correctly.

The game has five rounds and it shows five separate answers on the screen, including the names of the song, artist and album artwork. You can play more rounds or even share your score on social networks.

But the most interesting aspect is that the Music Quiz Mini game was built entirely with Apple shortcuts which proves how powerful the app is. Expert users can use the mini game shortcut to determine how it was created and to change some aspects of it.
