You remember how we just mentioned that Google introduced the NFC-based Android Beam? Well Shazam has taken notice and is ready to implement the technology into its app. In the newest version of the Shazam app, it will utilize Android Beam— allowing users to share music, coupons and tour dates. The feature works in a straightforward way too: two Android users will be able to hold their phones back-to-back in order to share music, offers they’ve received from advertisers, and even info on tour dates for favorite bands and more. While Android Beam has yet to be live on Android devices, there is much optimism and excitement for the new feature as we will see the feature introduced sooner than later.
Shazam also took this opportunity to highlight it will feature faster tagging. How fast, you ask? Well Shazam “says that songs and TV ads will be able to be identified in a fraction of the time it previously took, even as little as one second”. As the Android OS continues to evolve, so does the apps on the platform. Are you all excited for the evolution of Shazam yet?
