Now this is a pretty killer partnership: Shazam and Spotify are partnering up to further enhance their music-related applications. Now when you identify a song with Shazam you will be presented with a “Play in Spotify” option letting you listen to the full-length track.
“Shazam, the world’s leading mobile discovery company, today announced that Spotify, the popular music service, will be integrated across the full range of Shazam’s free and premium Apps for iPhone, iPod touch and Android. As a result, Shazamers will be able to access Spotify directly through a new ‘Play in Spotify’ feature, which will take them directly to Spotify where they can immediately begin listening to the full track that they either tagged or discovered within Shazam from recommendations or the Shazam charts.”
The feature is currently only available with the Shazam Encore application, and obviously only in regions where Spotify is supported (sorry US). They promise it will hit the free version in due time.
