Apple has acquired Shazam for around $400 million

Shazam is a service that can identify songs, TV shows and movies using short audio clips.

Don't know if this is good or bad from a music industry perspective.

Personally I foresee only a downside to this. As most know Apple, they like to limit all of their stuff down to only what they want their users to be capable off, unlike Samsung.

And knowing this trend, they will lock this into iTunes and/or Apple Music. Ie, shutting it out for Spotify users. As I’m a 100% Spotify user and never liked either iTunes nor Apple Music. Only used iTunes for iPhone related things.

I never cared about this app so Apple can do whatever they want with it. I don't care about Spotify either. I keep my songs on my devices.

Meh. I prefer Soundhound anyways. Shazam was always hit or miss.

what is it? (I have a rough idea, I am just being sarcastic because I've never used it).
