WiMP launches Shazam-style audio search functionality


Music service WiMP can now listen to and recognise music with a new Audio Search functionality.

The update for iPhone and iPad, means that when users hear a song - on the radio or elsewhere – they can press a button in WiMP which then finds the song, ready for immediate play.

Thor Martin Jensen, global head of editorial in WiMP said: "The most important task for everyone working in WiMP is to inspire more music playing. We believe that this feature will help do just that, when people can easily retrieve music they hear and play it in WiMP.

“It simply makes it easier to discover even more new artists and songs and it has never been easier to create the soundtrack to your life”,

WiMP’s audio search is developed through a partnership with provider Gracenote.
