Posted by Admin on December 4, 2008

android-heroShazam, the music recognition service, is announcing today that it has increased its database from 6 million tracks to 8 million. The new content is from North America, Europe and Asia and Shazam believes that it now has ‘the largest collection of the most important long tail undiscovered music gems and hot pre-release future hit records.’

Shazam is a great service that allows you to get information on that track that’s bugging you. You just hold your phone up to the music and Shazam will tell you all you need to know and also hints on how to download it. You can download it here.

Will Mills, Head of Music, Shazam, said of the new content:

“With our strong music alliances we gain access to the most relevant music well before many other music services, which ensures users can discover popular and niche music all over the globe. No matter where they are, or what they’re listening to, users are taken on an unforgettable musical journey. This unequalled user experience and superior technology has made Shazam the perfect partner for mobile phone operators and handset manufacturers across the world.”
