Shazam teams up with Spotify for full song playback

Discovered a tune you like and want to hear it again right away? There’s an app for that

Much like it did with Rdio last month, Shazam has partnered with Spotify to offer full-song playback.

That means Shazam users who also have the Spotify app installed on their iOS or Android device can have Shazam identify a song then tap a dropdown menu to have the Spotify app open and play the full track. Assuming that it's present in Spotify's millions-strong library, of course.

Shazam has similar arrangements with Deezer and Rdio in place already. You can add the functionality by updating your Shazam app to the latest version – we've tried it on Android this morning and it's already up and running.
