Shazam, the music identification service that can tell you song information just by hearing a sample of the music has a much awaited update for us all today. Following the rise in the smartphone popularity in these times, the service has removed its 5 tags per month limit to allow unlimited song tags, that means now you can use the free app to identify as many songs as you desire!
Shazam was one of the first apps to come out and is one of the most widely known in the market. The app was free. You could tag as many songs as you wanted and it didn’t cost a dime. Shazam shifted its business model in 2009 launching a new paid app, Shazam Encore, and enforced a new 5-song-tags-per-month limit for the free version. Previous users were able to keep the unlimited feature but today, however, the company announced that it is finally bringing back unlimited tagging to the free Shazam app. Other song-identifying apps with unlimited tagging like SoundHound and MusicDNA ID were catching up to Shazam and now Shazam has opened up its app to be free allowing it to retain and grow its customer base.
The fact that you aren’t limited anymore on the number of songs you can tag is a major plus. If you want to try it out, you can download the new free Shazam app from the App Store.
