What would become of us without Shazam? This application takes advantage of the microphone that most mobile devices have incorporated to be able to record a sample of music that is being played.
An acoustic fingerprint is created from the sample and compared to a database to find matches.
Once the relationship is made, the user can receive information such as the title of the song, artist, album, links of interest to services of streaming as iTunes, YouTube, Spotify, Groove Música and others, plus it shows suggestions for other related songs.
The truth is that Shazam It came to change our lives and forget the hums.
Can you imagine having lived in another time when you listened to a song that caught all your attention without knowing who it was or what its name was? The doubt would remain forever. Now, Shazam it has even become an action.
There is always the person who asks someone to “shazamee” a song to know their name, even if that verb does not even exist, but in the language of the Internet, it does. There is nothing like taking the app out, playing it and identifying whatever song it is.
