Spotify arrives on Shazam iPhone and Android apps
Streaming wonder makes friends with music tagging app
Spotify and Shazam has joined forces to offer access to the streaming music service through both free and premium versions of the music identification app.
The new 'Play in Spotify' feature will be intergrated into Shazam Encore and (SHAZAM) RED apps, so once you've found out what tune had you cutting shapes on the dancefloor, you can listen to the full track over on Spotify.
You can also access Spotify through tracks featured on the Shazam charts and from the recommendations section. To reap the extra streaming benefits however, you will need to have access to Spotify Premium.
The new 'Play in Spotify' feature is available today for Shazam Premium Android and iPhone users in the UK, Sweden, Norway, Finland, France, Spain and the Netherlands. Free Shazam app owners will have to wait until late in Q1 to enjoy the Spotify and Shazam app mash-up.
