Shazam has teamed up with Portland-based music video platform Vadio to offer in-app playback of music videos or live performances for identified songs, letting users listen without having to be redirected to another app.
“The biggest artists in the world are also the biggest fans," so says Shazam's Daniel Danker. With that in mind, the music ID app now includes a new feature that lets you see precisely which tracks those artists are Shazaming.
Today, Shazam launched Visual Shazam, which lets users scan various products, QR codes or print ads. If you want to find a Shazamable ad, all you need to do is look for the Shazam logo with the camera icon.
Shazam's been identifying music tracks and TV shows for years, but now it's looking to expand its service to object recognition, allowing users to ID everyday items for more information, or to make a purchase.
