“Touch To Shazam And Then Play In Spotify” Partnership Announced

Shazam and Spotify have recently announced their new killer partnership for the Android platform.  Now, Android fan boys and girls can enjoy the best of both worlds, by having your cake and being able to eat it too.  Ahh shucks, throw some icing on that bad boy while you’re at it!  When users hear a song in Shazam and tag it, they will now be able to hit an option labeled “Play in Spotify”.  The app will then transfer you to the Spotify application where you can know the track that is playing and learn more about the artist, while listening to the full length of the song.  Here’s a quote from the release below:

Shazam, the world’s leading mobile discovery company, today announced that Spotify, the popular music service, will be integrated across the full range of Shazam’s free and premium Apps for iPhone, iPod touch and Android. As a result, Shazamers will be able to access Spotify directly through a new ‘Play in Spotify’ feature, which will take them directly to Spotify where they can immediately begin listening to the full track that they either tagged or discovered within Shazam from recommendations or the Shazam charts.

So there you have it folks.  Cake, icing, eat it.  For now the feature is only available on the Shazam Encore app, but will soon be available for the free version as well.  Hit up our database for more info on the app via the source link and don’t forget to let us know what you think in the comments below.
