Shazam is integrated right into iOS. Ask Siri what song is playing and she’ll use Shazam to figure it out.
Now, competing music detection app SoundHound is trying to pick up more iOS users.
SoundHound has redesigned their app on iOS and Android. The redesign has more visual appeal, and integrates better with the look of iOS 8. SoundHound says the app is now “optimized” for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The new app provides easier access to relevant content, including related songs, videos, and charts.
Beats Music has also been integrated into SoundHound’s iOS app (though their image confusingly shows a Beats Music ad on Android). Users can tap on songs in SoundHound to launch them in Apple-owned Beats Music, a service with an uncertain future.
SoundHound says they now have 230 million users globally.
