Shazam For iOS App Updated With LyricPlay™ Integration


Not long ago, Shazam updated their Free iOS app with “Unlimited Tagging”, a feature that was preciously available to paid / Shazam Encore customers only. Once again, a major update to Shazam app has just hit the App Store which brings full support for LyricPlay™. The feature gives you ‘full-screen visualization’ of lyrics that play in time to the music you’re tagging. When you Tag a song, you can start LyricPlay™ by simply turning your phone horizontally. Then watch and sing along to the lyrics as they scroll, jump, pop or slide in time with the music.

Here is the official announcement:

With over 30,000 songs (and growing!) of our most popular Shazam’d tracks – LyricPlay is available in US, UK and Canada for Shazamers with an iPhone or iPod touch. To get started  make sure you have the latest version of Shazam for iPhone.

Watch the video to see LyricPlay™ in action!

    In my opinion SoundHound is FAR better! It has had a simpler version of Lyric play for years! Check it out. I reviewed SoundHound on my site.

    Soundhound is 10 times better and has had lyrics for a while. Shaman is terrible now, you guys should review Soundhound and give your readers a better option. Shazam lost its ground to Soundhound years ago.

    I switched to Soundhound from Shazam. Soundgound is far superior and had always been free with unlimited tagging and lyrics. It is also faster at tagging.

    My 2 cents…
