Shazam today announced Shazam for Mac, which effortlessly recognizes the music, TV shows or TV ads playing around you.
The app you’ve come to rely on as your go-to musical expert has arrived on your Mac. Operating seamlessly in the background, Shazam for Mac can name that tune, TV show or advertisement in seconds. The new experience gives you uninterrupted access to explore the world around you without digging out your phone.
“Shazam on mobile instantaneously answers fans' questions about what's playing around them, at the touch of a button. The magic of Shazam for Mac, is that it anticipates and answers these questions before they're even asked,” said Shazam Chief Product Officer Daniel Danker.
When you download Shazam onto their Mac, you will be given the option to activate the app’s auto function to identify surrounding music, TV shows and TV ads. Shazam for Mac runs quietly behind the scenes, but springs to life when it finds a song, show, or ad you should know about, creating a playlist as it goes. Mac users can now effortlessly find it, share it, and buy it. Shazam also provides instant access to lyrics and more tracks by the artists you discover.
Shazam for Mac is available on the Mac App Store today.
