Shazam premium users can now use Shazam in conjunction with Spotify, while free users get the same link-up soon.
With the latest version of the Shazam app, you will be able to identify a track (that has been tagged or found through the various discovery features, such as recommendations from other users or chart listings) and then enjoy the full playback of the track via Spotify.
Spotify users can also add the track to their music collection quickly and simply.
The free Shazam app, offering five free tags per month, will get the update to offer the same service later in Q1.
The Shazam Encore, (SHAZAM) RED and Shazam Free app are available for iPhone, iPod touch and Android handsets.
