If you’re not familiar with Shazam, it’s a music recognition service.
Or to put it another way, imagine there’s a song playing on the radio, and you’ve missed the DJ saying what it is.
You can hold up your phone, let Shazam listen to a snippet of it, and the service will then identify the track and artist.
It’s a smart little system, but now Shazam Encore has hooked up with Last.fm to expand its functionality.
Provided you have the Last.fm app installed, Shazam will allow you to create your own Internet radio stations using the music you’ve tagged with the service.
Shazam will also provide extra details such as tour and ticket information for the artist in question.
“We are delighted to bring these enhancements to the more than 15 million Shazam iPhone and iPod touch users around the world,” said Andrew Fisher, CEO of Shazam.
