After removing the ability to listen to tagged songs on Spotify in the UK, Germany, Mexico and Brazil earlier this year, Shazam has restored the feature in the latest update for Android and iOS.

The removal of Spotify integration from the free version of the client was on account of a deal with Deezer. At the time, Shazam only mentioned that it was "trialling different streaming partners to see which are used by more of our users," but to the service's credit it did state that Spotify integration could be re-enabled at a later date.

Along with adding Spotify back to the list of streaming services, Shazam is also testing out a "Listen Now" feature with Beats Music on its iOS client.

Shazam users, are you excited about the reenlistment of Spotify?

Shazam restores Spotify integration


As expected.. More people use Spotify than Rdio.. It's even not available in my country (Bulgaria).. Love Spotify! For me it's the best service :)

Too bad Spotify itself does not share that same customer response. People have been asking for Chromecast support for a year now. And counting.

Shazam is the biggest, with Google tightly behind, music demolition entity on Earth!
They are the main reason making music worthless and spilled all over for free.
Let's remove Shazam the mooch from the music house. Then hire Shazam as a cashier of the music industry with all Radio and streaming working as a simple digital music store. I call it Discovery Moment Monetization.
