Shazam delivers new music recognition service


Shazam iD is a Java application that incorporates Shazam's music recognition technology and, while it's free to download, there is a £2 a month subscription charge.

Once downloaded, the application can be accessed from your mobile with a single click over a GPRS connection.

With the touch of a button, users can ID the music they are listening to and also access album cover art, track reviews, artist biographies, music recommendations from other Shazam users, and also have the means to buy music from their phone.

Shazam iD is currently compatible with 22 Java handsets in the UK, and on-device audio fingerprinting means that should you lose online coverage while recognition of a music sample is in progress, the sample is automatically pushed to Shazam, once the GPRS connection has been re-established.
