Shazam adds social media function

By | Published on Wednesday 23 March 2011


Shazam has launched a new bit of functionality called Shazam Friends which lets users of the music recognition service tell their friends what music they have recently identified, on the off chance their friends wish to know. The information can be shared with other Shazam users, and wider afield via Facebook. Friends can listen to thirty second clips of songs and buy it via iTunes. The new service is available for users of the Shazam iPhone app already, with plans to roll out to the Android app in the next few weeks.
