Snapchat music discoveries to your friends with new Shazam partnership

Snapchat have heard the cries of their Twitter fans and integrated Shazam into their app so that users can easily find songs and snap them straight to your friends.

Two of the world’s most popular apps have teamed up so that even when you’re trying to take the perfect selfie you can find out what that song that just came on the speakers is. Snapchat have teamed up with song recognition app Shazam to “bring the magic of Shazam directly to Snapchatters”.

With the new partnership users can Shazam music straight from Snapchat by holding their finger down on the camera screen. When Shazam has scanned the music the track will pop up and you can decide whether to save it on your streaming service, buy it, discover more and, most importantly, send the music and artist easily to your friends as a Snap.

Shazam CEO Rich Riley said: “We are excited to launch our partnership with Snapchat. We’ve integrated Shazam into Snapchat in a way that makes discovering and sharing music both fun and easier than ever.” With over a billion app downloads and millions of users every week from around the world Shazam is the leader in song recognition technology. Integrating with Snapchat is just the latest of their impressive moves.
