Shazam brings trending, genre charts and more in the latest update

Shazam and Shazam Encore have both been updated to version 4.0.1 on the Windows Phone Store. This is a major release, introducing a number of new features, and follows on the heels of an update published just last month. The app for music lovers just got that little bit better.

According to the store listing, we're looking at the following new features in the release:

  • Trending Shazams: what's popular right now
  • Genre Charts: hip-hop, pop, dance, country
  • Future Hits: the 10 tracks you should know
  • Global/Local Charts: top 100 most Shazamed tracks worldwide and near you
  • New Lyrics and Video pages so you can stay connected to your discovered music
