Mobile music discovery provider Shazam has increased its database from six to eight million tracks. It means Shazam users will now be able to discover even more unrecognised music by simply holding their phone up to a speaker or radio. Once the track has been identified, users will have access to artist biographies, album reviews as well as being invited to buy the track or album through various affiliated partners of Shazam. With eight million tracks now recognised on its database, Shazam provides links to not just the more established artists and bands, but also pre-release and specialist music.
Shazam is available to users of any mobile phone by simply dialling 2580 and following the instructions, though a Shazam application is available on both the iPhone through the Apple App Store and the T-Mobile G1 through the Google Android open market.
