“Last night, we saw record levels of engagement with the Super Bowl with more than 700,000 Shazams of the game, with more than half of those happening during Bruno Mars’ halftime show. Our timeline experience offered users the ability to replay the ads, catch all the new music as it was unveiled, and get exclusive content,” said Rich Riley, CEO. “We were excited to have partnered with Bud Light, Jaguar and Sonos on their advertising and with Bruno Mars, Atlantic Records and Warner Music Group on the halftime show.”
Shazam launched a new Timeline feature for the Super Bowl that enabled viewers to keep up with all the key performances, ads, plays and tweets during the game. Plus, this year all of the ads aired during the Super Bowl were recognized by Shazam – making it easy for viewers to watch again in the moment, today or anytime and share their favorites on social media. Other key features of the Shazam experience were:
- 500,000 tracks of the new AfroJack single given away by Bud Light in a world exclusive;
- An exciting British Villain experience associated with the Jaguar commercial;
- Playlist of the half time show starring Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, exclusive world premiere track downloads; and
- Playlists from the teams’ cities.
While there were a number of spikes in Shazam activity, the half time performance of Bruno Mars and Red Hot Chili Peppers singing “Give It Away” saw the biggest spike in activity. The complete top five Shazamed moments from the Super Bowl were:
- Bruno Mars/ Red Hot Chili Peppers – Give it Away
- Bruno Mars - Just The Way You Are
- Chevrolet – Life
- Jaguar - Rendezvous
- Bruno Mars - Runaway Baby
Shazam recently launched its new Auto Shazam feature to make it easy for people to automatically identify the music and TV playing around them. The new feature is perfect for situations like watching the Super Bowl, when fans don’t want to miss a minute of the action, because it works in the background or when people are using other apps. More than 90,000 – or nearly 15% of the identifications – were generated by Auto Shazam, identifying all aspects of the game, including the half time show and the ads.
Lastly, this is the first year where all the ads were Shazamable to watch again and share on social media. The top-Shazamed ads during the broadcast were:
- Chevrolet – Life
- Jaguar – Rendezvous
- Bud Light – Cool Twist
- Bank of America featuring U2
- Budweiser – A Hero’s Welcome
Prior to the broadcast, Shazam leveraged the reach of its new News Feed feature to reach out to more than 11 million iOS and Android users in the U.S. to remind them about the Super Bowl broadcast. In the past months, Shazam’s News Feed has featured artist messages and other content to keep fans effortlessly informed about the artists, TV shows, and brands they love.
Shazam is the world’s leading media engagement company connecting people to the media around them through their mobile device. When a user shazams a song or TV show, they are able to identify, explore, purchase and share that content. One of the world’s top ten apps, Shazam reaches more than 420 million users in 200 countries, exceeds 80 million monthly active users, and is growing by another 13 million new users each month.
Shazam makes it easy for people to share their discoveries on Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp, Pinterest and Google+. And to purchase through iTunes, Amazon and Google Play.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
