Today, Shazam® announced a major update featuring supercharged streaming that allows users to go “beyond the preview” with full song playback, currently powered by Rdio. This feature further establishes Shazam as a hub for effortless music exploration by allowing users to enjoy the music they discover without leaving the app.

With the current version, Rdio subscribers will now see a redesigned play button that allows them to listen to the full track after Shazaming a song. Rdio subscribers will also be able to access two recently launched features:
- Your Shazamed Tracks: A new automatic playlist feature that creates a list within Rdio of all the tracks a user has Shazamed
- “Add to Playlist” button: Allows users to choose additional Rdio playlists into which they can put the songs they Shazam
Fans who aren’t subscribers will be prompted to install Rdio from the App Store.
