shazam now on Siri
Apple bought Shazam on 11th December 2017, the music-recognition app. Although the Tech Company did not show how much the bought the app. A report on a website confirmed that Shazam was bought for $400 Million. In May 2014, Apple had bought Beats Electronics and Beats Music about with a price tag of $2.6 billion.
Apple a few days ago added a new feature to the newly bought app. The popular music application Shazam has included an offline mode for iPad and iPhone consumers. The new function gives iOS users the ability to save snippets of the song even when their iPads or iPhones are offline. The app identifies the songs automatically once the device is online again. The update comes with 11.6.0 as the version of the iOS application.
Here is the release note for variants that adds offline mode:
Keep Shazaming, even when you’re offline! Next time the music’s on but the WiFi isn’t, simply tap the big blue button and we’ll name that song as soon as you’re back online. Now we’ll notify you immediately, even if you don’t have the Shazam app open. Don’t forget to keep your Shazams safe and in sync with your devices. Simply create an account and we’ll back up your Shazams so you’ll never lose them.
We are still on the verge of knowing how Shazam will develop under Apple. The technology of Shazam is already incorporated into Siri, the voice assistant of Apple. Shazam also has features of augmented reality and image recognition added, which means that Apple might more leverage into it its future AR hardware and Siri.
Shazam Entertainment Ltd. is a British app development company that created an app that can find music, movies, advertising, and television shows, based on a short sample played and using the microphone on the device.
