Shazam can now recognize more than just music, works with QR Codes and images


Shazam is for more than just music now, with the latest version of the music identification app being able to scan images and QR codes to offer access to interactive content.

Starting today, the newest version of Shazam will have a new camera icon on the interface. The new button will allow users to wave their phone over items with the Shazam camera logo or a QR Code to bring up interactive content, special offers and other custom mobile content. Shazam is working hand in hand with a long list of companies to make this work, including that of the Warner Brothers, Guerlain and Evian to name a few, to put interactive content on their products that can be accessed via the app. The app can also read content on regular QR codes with no problem either.

If you’d like to give it a go, you can download Shazam here though it will be awhile yet till we see Shazam specific content around our parts.
