Apple Just Bought Shazam

It had been rumored for days and just a few minutes ago, it’s been confirmed that Apple has bought the music tagging and recognition service known as Shazam. The word on the street is that Apple dropped $400 million to get the company.

Now Apple had been using the service to power the music nonrecognition feature within Siri. But now that they apparently own the company, you have to wonder what more they can do with the service. On top of that. You have to also wonder what happens to the base of Android users who use the service. When Beats Music was purchased, the Android app was kept around. Perhaps we will see that happen here as well. We’ll have to wait and see.
