Shazam and Rdio have already been collaborating in the past and now they’ve taken it to another level. Shazam has announced that a new update to the app will now allow users to stream full tracks from Rdio’s library without exiting the app. Earlier the app only allowed a preview of the song to be played from the same source.
“Shazaming a song is just the beginning of a listener’s journey,” said Daniel Danker, Chief Product Officer for Shazam. “Now, in partnership with Rdio, fans can listen to the music they discover without even leaving the app, making Shazam a terrific place to enjoy great music.”
Rdio subscribers will now see a new play button in the app. They’ll also get access to two new features — Shazamed Tracks: A new automatic playlist feature that creates a list within Rdio of all the tracks a user has Shazamed, and “Add to Playlist” button, that allows users to choose additional Rdio playlists into which they can put the songs they Shazam.
Users without Rdio service will be prompted to install Rdio from the App Store.
The update is available on iOS and should be rolled out on Android in the coming days.
