Apple acquires Shazam

11th December 2017

It’s already official, in conversations with a spokesman of Cupertino’s company in the middle of North America The Verge, Apple has confirmed the acquisition of Shazam, something that was rumored a good time ago, and today has been officialized. Of course, money has not yet been discussed with which we do not know the amount paid, although there is talk of an amount of around USD 400 million.

It all makes us predict that Shazam will integrate in some way with Apple’s system, we do not know if directly, through Apple’s music application or otherwise, be that as it may, there is no doubt that this is a huge acquisition that will bring better experiences to Apple users.

Shazam welcomes Apple purchase

Apple’s spokesperson would have testified:

We are thrilled that Shazam and its talented team will be joining Apple. Apple Music and Shazam are a natural fit, sharing a passion for music discovery and delivering great music experiences to our users. We have exciting plans in store, and we look forward to combining with Shazam upon approval of today’s agreement.

Since Shazam have welcomed this union with a phrase that proves the proximity of the two companies:

We are excited to announce that Shazam has entered into an agreement to become part of Apple. Shazam is one of the highest rated apps in the world and loved by hundreds of millions of users and we can’t imagine a better home for Shazam to enable us to continue innovating and delivering magic for our users.

Now it remains to be seen how this will affect applications for other systems, such as Android, something that hasn’t been talked about yet.
