Shazam, the media engagement company, has unveiled its new user experience for iPad and Android tablet fans, including a completely redesigned home screen, an improved layout for Shazam tag results for both TV and music, and a new way to browse what friends have been tagging.

The updated app gives users new streams of activity to explore what songs people are tagging and, in the US, what TV shows people are currently watching , as well as a new interactive mapping feature enabling music fans to explore what people are discovering in any city around the world.

“The number of Shazam users and their level of engagement continue to grow rapidly.  We now have over 300 million Shazamers globally with an increasing proportion of whom use our app on their iPad or Android tablet devices to interact with television.  This new version of Shazam optimises discovery, engagement, transactions and exploration in a tablet environment,” said Andrew Fisher, Shazam CEO.  “It’s the most efficient way to experience more of the media around you whether you are in your home or in any other environment throughout the world.”
