Shazam update brings better Xbox Music combination for WindowsPhone



Shazam, last year promised to update the app on  Windows Phone 8.1 throughout this year and, they seem to be sticking to their promise, (other apps, take note). Shazam update brings better Xbox Music combination for WindowsPhone 8.1

Version 4.2 adds some refinement to the already decent music app. Now users can sample songs which they have ‘shazammed’ with Xbox Music. There is also a new feature where you can add songs on the charts to your “My Shazam” section with a nifty button added on the app bar.  Finally, Shazam now recommends songs to you based on what you have previously shazammed allowing you to expand your music tastes beyond those 5 songs you play all the time.
