“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.

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.
