Where would I be without Shazam?
I'd be without titles of songs,
names of artists,
forever yearning to hear the song,
I heard by chance,
What a sad predicament...
Shazam has allowed me to broaden my range of listening, by allowing me to have the titles of songs and names of artists of music I’ve heard in random places.
Many of my discoveries are at cafes and restaurants. Sometimes it's a song playing on a TV show.
One time it was a song blasting out of a car on the streets of LA.
Inevitably, I would be lost without my Shazam.
Shazam has been acquired by Apple last year for $400m. And since the acquisition, the two apps have become woven into one another. Making the songs found on Shazam seamlessly accessible on Apple Music.
Shazam was founded in 1999 by Christ Barton, Philip Inghelbrecht, Dhiraj Mukherjee and Avery Wang.
