Spotify comes to Shazam iPhone & Android apps

The folk behind Shazam have inked a deal with Spotify that enables users of the music discovery app to find out the name of a song and listen to it just seconds later.

A revamped version of Shazam has arrived that includes a 'Play in Spotify' tab that takes you straight to the Spotify app, where you'll be able to stream the song to their handsets. Cool, huh?

If you’re a premium Shazam customer and you're in Europe, you can access the function today. If you’re using the free version, - and let’s face it you probably are - you’ve a while to wait, with Shazam pledging it’ll bring it to these users during the next three months.

Spotify Chief Executive Office Daniel Ek said: "Shazam is a very innovative company in the mobile space, having achieved a massive following around the world and we're excited about the potential of this partnership for new music discovery through Spotify."

Now if you hear a great new track you can identify it, listen to it instantly in its entirety and easily add it to your music collection. That's pretty powerful stuff.”
