Apple confirms the purchase of Shazam

A few days ago we told you about some rumors reported by the TechCrunch website regarding a possible purchase of Shazam by Apple. In the last few hours, the Cupertino company confirmed the news.

Last week we told you about a TechCrunch report regarding this purchase by Apple. As we all know the app in question, it is a music detection app for Android and iOS devices. The company also deals with several new technologies (including AR). The latter seem to be the main reason for the purchase by Apple. The acquisition was confirmed by Apple in a public announcement.

The press release:

We are thrilled that Shazam and his talented team will be joining Apple. Since the launch of the App Store, Shazam has consistently ranked as one of the most popular apps for iOS. Apple Music and Shazam are naturally complementary, sharing a passion for music discovery and delivering exceptional music experiences to our users.

The exact amount Apple disbursed has not been disclosed, but TechCrunch estimates it to be in the region of $ 400 million. Snap Inc and Spotify were also reportedly interested in buying the company. At the moment no further details are known, nor the fate that will touch the Android app, we hope it can still have a long life on the Play Store.
