Now, it would appear that YouTube has even more catching up to do, as Apple is reportedly in the final stages of acquiring the music recognition app Shazam for the small sum of $400 million. According to many sources, the official announcement of the sale will take place this upcoming Monday, confirming their partnership.
It will be interesting to see how Apple implements Shazam into Apple Music and how it'll affect the Spotify integration within the core Shazam app since Spotify is Apple's biggest music streaming rival right now.
Shazam, that reports over one billion downloads, lets music lovers identify any song, TV show, film or advert in a jiffy, by listening to an audio clip or a visual fragment.
