Deezer introduces new mobile music discovery feature SongCatcher

Deezer has announced its new mobile feature that will allow users to identify forgotten or unknown songs.

In the same week it was announced that Apple have purchased music identification app Shazam, rival Deezer has launched its SongCatcher service.

For the first time ever, Deezer users will be able to identify forgotten songs or discover unknown tracks on their mobile devices, by simply holding their phone up and letting the search function do the rest.

Fans can find out the names of songs and use the search function to quickly identify unknown tracks from Deezer’s catalogue of 44-plus million songs, by showing the artist’s name and song title.

Features also include adding newly identified tracks to their favourites or playlist and the ability to play all saved and favorite tracks from SongCatcher.

Alexander Holland, chief content and product officer, Deezer, said: “The joy of hearing new music or a long-forgotten favorite is also about knowing which artist or what song is playing. Deezer SongCatcher enables us to eliminate the tongue-biting frustration of trying to search frantically for a song online before it ends, which then eclipses the fun of actually being present in that moment to enjoy the music."

Deezer SongCatcher will be rolled out over the coming months and will be open to Premium+ subscribers. Initially available on Android, it will be coming to iOS next year.
