Shazam Supercharges In-App Streaming With Full Song Playback

Bookmark and Share

Shazam announced a major update featuring supercharged streaming that allows users to go "beyond the preview" with full song playback, currently powered by Rdio. This feature further establishes Shazam as a hub for effortless music exploration by allowing users to enjoy the music they discover without leaving the app.

"This partnership helps us deliver on our promise to be everywhere music is being discovered."

"Shazaming a song is just the beginning of a listener's journey," said Daniel Danker, Chief Product Officer for Shazam. "Now, in partnership with Rdio, fans can listen to the music they discover without even leaving the app, making Shazam a terrific place to enjoy great music."

With the current version, Rdio subscribers will now see a redesigned play button that allows them to listen to the full track after Shazaming a song. Rdio subscribers will also be able to access two recently launched features:

* Your Shazamed Tracks: A new automatic playlist feature that creates a list within Rdio of all the tracks a user has Shazamed
* "Add to Playlist" button: Allows users to choose additional Rdio playlists into which they can put the songs they Shazam
* Fans who aren't subscribers will be prompted to install Rdio from the App Store.

"We are thrilled to be the first streaming music service to power Shazam's new in-app song playback," said Chris Becherer, SVP of Product at Rdio. "This partnership helps us deliver on our promise to be everywhere music is being discovered."

The update also includes enhanced Facebook sharing. It's now easier than ever for users to share songs they discover on Shazam as well as to invite friends to download the app and share their own discoveries.

This update is available today on iOS, with an update for Android launching in the next few days. Additional streaming services to be added and announced in the coming weeks.
