Facebook Introduces Shazam-Like Music ID Feature

Apps that can identify media by “listening” began with apps like Shazam and Soundhound, but now Facebook is getting involved.

If you turn on the feature inside the Facebook app (it’s off by default), it will identify music or the TV show you’re watching.  That information is then automatically added to your newsfeed.

Further details at The Daily Mail.
