Apple and Shazam are about to be best friends. Apple just bought the popular music app and is upgrading it in a big way. Commercial free. Users will soon enjoy Shazam without any annoying ads. Game changer. The two seem like a match made in heaven with their apparent strengths. Shazam can identify music and Apple can stream it. They are the perfect couple.  Apple dropped $400 million for Shazam and shares how much they love the application. 

Apple:

“With pioneering innovation in music identification, Shazam helps people discover, interact with and share video, audio or printed content across devices and mediums — and allows music fans to follow their favorite artists and share in the thrill of discovery.”

We couldn't agree more. We are excited about this new Shazam and Apple relationship.
