“Beyond the Preview”- Shazam allows Rdio users to stream full songs!

Posted by A. Kaye. on July 16, 2014


What is the best way to keep subscribers on your music app? Allow them to preview full songs without leaving your app. Shazam has partnered with music streaming service Rdio to make that happen.

Rdio users on Shazam can finally go beyond the preview with full song playback on Shazam. Rdio subscribers that update their iOS Shazam app to version 7.7 can stream entire songs without ever leaving Shazam, making it even more seamless to discover, explore and enjoy music.

This is a far fetch from the way Shazam’s app used to work, which kicked you out to Rdio or Spotify’s app to listen to a whole track, and send you to iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play to buy it. According to Rdio, the feature is coming to Android users “shortly.”
