Shazam, the music identifying-and-tagging app, has been given a big makeover which includes some brand new features. They include
- Fast access to lyrics as soon as a song is identified.
- Direct access to the song’s music video (if it exists) and additional related videos.
- Quicker access to TV shows on 160 US-based channels, including all the music used in the shows along with cast and crew.
- Better biographies and discographies.
Shazam says they have 420 million users in 200 countries who access the service more than 80 million times a month. They tag 10 million songs and TV shows every day–and this generates more than $300 million USD in revenue as people use this information to buy music from sites like iTunes.
