The new Shazam 5.0 allows you to identify media even faster and lodges many vibrant features. The new version is not limited just to songs, but identifies television shows and ads.

This facility was not featured in earlier versions of Shazam. However it identifies only Shazam-enabled media.

Thus, you could use the app to get complimentary contents through Apple’s iTunes App Store. Previously, Shazam was able to identify the song you’re hearing and give you options to buy, share, or listen to previews.

The app has helped all its host devices to create a good impression among their users. It appeared spectacular as it identifies songs that you never knew, and aids you in buying it.

Now, the app identifies the song in as little as one second. Synchronization of lyrics in Shazam 5.0 is way better than sync in earlier versions. The app has been improved custom based, and the company has sought user’s feedback before implementing new features.

New version of the app uses much more responsive user interface. It has been tailor- made for easy navigation, and scrolling is even smoother.

The company has made it to edit tweets; feed contents are transported very quickly. Improvements in LyricPlay allow you to view lyrics as you play the song.
