Shazam Extends Unlimited Free Tagging to Microsoft Windows Phones

shazamShazam®, the world’s leading media engagement company, today announces it is extending its unlimited tagging in the Free version of the popular Shazam App for Microsoft Windows Phone.  With this update, Shazam fans on the popular Microsoft Windows 7 platform can tag all the music and other media that interests them.

Shazam is also launching a new feature called “Top Local Tags” in both its Free and premium Encore versions of the app on Microsoft Windows phones, soon to be rolled out to other platforms.  Now, Shazam fans can check out the most tagged songs by location such as a city, or even neighbourhoods in larger cities. Since the popularity of music varies in different locations around the country, even just from city to city, this feature will be a great way to discover new locally popular music, and great for those who commute or travel frequently to different cities.

Other features that are a part of this update to both Free and Encore include:

  • Social media sharing using Mango native API, giving fans faster, easier ways to update on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Windows Live; and
  • ·Access to Shazam’s Tag Chart for their country to discover great music from Shazam’s community.

This update is the latest in a series of innovations for the Shazam App on the popular Windows phone.
