Sure and steadily Microsoft is getting the biggies from Apple and Android to make a launch for Windows Phone and the latest entrant is Shazam. Music discovery App Shazam has finally made its way to Windows Phone devices, just a week after the launch of an iPad app.
This Windows Phone optimised version will bring its signature tagging from home screen as well integration with Xbox Music and Nokia Music. Windows Phone 8 users will be able to identify songs that are currently being played, as well as tag artists, track song names and albums. But unlike the iOS or Android app that links users to iTunes, Spotify or Rdio, the Windows Phone Shazam App will guide you to Xbox Music and Nokia Music. Though you can watch YouTube on Shazam.
As in Android and iOS, Shazam also has local tag features and will flag up what you have tagged and listened to every 30 minutes. Shazam will give you the option of showing these tags as a tile on the home screen. You will also be able to set your favourite cover art or tag charts as your phone’s wallpaper using this app too. The additional advantage with Windows Phone 8 App is that you can pin the tagging button to your homescreen for a quick access faster.
So, if you are a music afficionado, you can head over to Windows store to download Shazam. A Pro verison called Encore available for Rs.310.00 for hard core music fans here.
