Shazam announced that users with the latest version of its can now scan images and QR codes that will offer up access to interactive content and more. Here's how Shazam describes the new feature:
To make the magic happen, Shazam says that it has partnered with a long list of companies, including Target, Disney, Esquire, to put interactive content on their products through the Shazam camera logo and QR codes.
If you're eager to give things a shot, it should be available today. It looks like the scanner will work with regular old QR codes well enough, but you may have to work a little harder to track down any interactive, Shazam-specific images to check out.

Why would anyone use shazam instead of a barcode scanner than can scan regular barcodes as well as QR codes and requires less clicks to begin scanning?
