Shazam, the music discovery service has just announced a partnership with Spotify, in a new deal that brings added functionality to Shazam. Ever since SoundHound became a free app, Shazam has had to step up their game to compete, and this new partnership might just work. The partnership brings the ability to stream identified songs on Shazam using Spotify’s music streaming service. The service will only be available to premium Shazam users, but due to the fact that Spotify has had trouble getting licensing deals on this side of the world, it won’t work for US customers yet. Let’s hope they get those issues sorted out soon. There’s no doubt that it’s an extremely useful feature for a music identification service, but will the cost of a premium subscription justify its cost?
