Shazam launches music discovery engine

Mobile phones

Shazam, already loved by many music fans for its mobile music recognition service, has launched what it describes as the world’s most comprehensive music discovery tool.

Using Shazam’s Ultimate Music Discovery Engine, you can now not only recognise (or ‘tag’) tracks by pointing your handset at a music source when you’re out and about, but also purchase related products. Once you receive the music recognition result by SMS, you can now choose to buy ringtones, music downloads, wallpapers, CDs or gig tickets through leading industry such as Amazon, Ticketmaster, i-Tunes and Kelkoo either via WAP or later on via your PC.

Details of all tracks tagged are stored on a personal page at the Shazam website, allowing you to build up a collection, share information and be part of a music community

The service is based on a subscription – tag unlimited songs for just £3 per month, or for £4.50 you can tag an unlimited number of songs and receive two additional products – either ringtones or full track downloads.
