Despite other methods for handling those music discovery needs, Shazam remains the go-to for many to figure out what tune is playing nearby. The company has been keen on adding new features as of late to keep pace and today it tacks on a few more. Users can already play full-length tracks from Rdio without leaving the app, and folks who prefer Spotify can now do the same. You can also have all of the songs you Shazam added to a playlist to revisit later. The expanded Spotify integration is iOS only for now, but Android support is on the way. Those two streaming services also power an in-app music player (if you have a subscription, of course) for listening to what's trending, top charts, recommendations and more. There's also a wealth of new content streams that house everything from interviews to exclusive sessions and a "Hall of Fame" for artists/songs that are particularly popular with the app. Counts have also been added in, so you'll be able to see how many times a particular tune has been spun. In case you're wondering, Avicii and Aloe Blacc's "Wake Me Up" is the most Shazamed song to date, tallying over 19 million searches.
