Mobile music discovery service Shazam has launched its own music player for iOS devices. The Shazam Player, which is available on the Apple App Store, enables customers to browse through their music library and add more tracks via iTunes. It’ll also play YouTube videos and includes social networking options along with Shazam’s LyricPlay ‘streaming lyrics’ feature.
Andrew Fisher, Shazam’s CEO, said “This is a momentous occasion for the company as it is the first separate app we’ve introduced since the launch of the Shazam App for iPhone in 2008. With the Shazam Player App we are staying true to our core music fans by enabling them to experience their own music libraries in a more engaging and social way. We think the Shazam Player App is a great new addition and is an excellent complement to our Shazam App so that people will always have a magical musical discovery experience, whether the song is something that they’re just hearing for the first time or is a favourite in their collection.”
The Shazam Player App works with the Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
