Everything you need to discover music
Considered as a true song hunter, it's capable of working even in noisy atmospheres in which you'd think that it's impossible to detect and identify a song to the quality of the sound played. Nowadays it's also used by brands that ask you to shazam their adverts and lead you to exclusive information for users of this tool.
But music discovery isn't only limited to the identification of songs. In fact, the application incorporates a Discover function by means of which the application offers us playlists of singers and bands that match our tastes on a daily basis, provided that we've indicated our favorite music genres and we follow at least 5 artists.
As you can see, the APK can be downloaded for free although it contains adverts. You can also pay to access the pro or full version called Shazam Encore that offers you an ad-free user experience.
It's definitely one of the most successful mobile apps that we can find on Google Play, with over 100 million users around the world, and also a hit on other platforms with its versions for PC, iPhone, and Mac.
