Music and television content can be tagged in as little as one second

LONDON--()--Shazam®, the world’s leading media discovery company, today announces the launch of Shazam 5.0 – a major update to the Shazam Free, Encore and (RED) Apps on iPhone and iPod touch devices – making Shazam the world’s fastest content identification and discovery experience for music, television and media advertising. With this new update now available for downloading, content such as music and Shazam-enabled television shows and advertising can be identified in as little as one second, making it even faster for people to discover, explore and share more of the music, shows and brands they love.

“We are committed to continually enhancing the Shazam App to ensure we deliver an industry-leading experience”

“We are committed to continually enhancing the Shazam App to ensure we deliver an industry-leading experience,” said Alex Musil, EVP Product for Shazam. “With the release of Shazam 5.0 for iPhone and iPod touch, Shazam fans will be able to get the information they’re looking for almost instantaneously, giving them lightning-fast access to content and a deeper experience surrounding the song, TV show or TV advertisement they have just tagged. Shazam delivers the fastest and most exciting way to discover, explore, purchase and share music, access more content about television shows, and get more information and even buy products and services from the world’s leading brands.”

Shazam delivers what industry experts and people describe as a magical experience when people use the app to identify a song. In as little as one second, Shazam returns the name of the artist, song and album as well as other great features like LyricPlay™ that shows the lyrics in time with the music, links to buy the music, music videos, tour info, album reviews, other popular songs from that artist and more.

The update also includes a newly designed user interface, and improvements to sharing on social networks, including sharing content on Twitter and Facebook with a personal note or comment, right from every tag result. Shazam 5.0 also adds additional language support, including Brazilian Portuguese, Korean and Spanish for South America, bringing languages supported by Shazam to 33 total worldwide.

All versions of Shazam for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch come with unlimited tagging, giving fans more opportunities to engage with music and television content.

For people who don't yet have the Shazam App, it can be downloaded for free from the App Store.
