Today, Shazam joined the many Windows Phone apps that have been receiving big updates with a new 4.0 version that includes a new user interface along with other features and improvements.

The bullet point list of new and improved features in the Shazam app is as follows

  • A new recognition engine with faster and more accurate Shazaming
  • Quicker app startup so you can get Shazaming sooner
  • Brand new interface, designed specifically for Windows Phone 8.1
  • New song pages with lyrics, videos and links to Xbox Music


In addition, the app page says, "This is only the beginning and you can expect many more updates through 2015…" That should be very encouraging news for fans of Shazam. The update applies to both the free, ad-supported, Shazam app as well as the $5.99 ad free version, Shazam Encore.
