Shazam now available on the Mac

Shazam has released a desktop version of their popular mobile application for the Mac. The app has so far been limited to iOS, Android and Windows platforms.

The Mac version of Shazam works similarly to the mobile version, except you can now have it running all the time in the background. It will constantly look out for music or other media such as TV shows or even advertisements in the background and will show a handy notification for you when it recognizes it.

If you are already working on your Mac, you don’t have to fiddle with your phone and launch the app to find out what song is playing. This app runs in the background (if you allow it to) and would tell you what song is playing even before you can unlock your phone.

As always, the Shazam app for Mac is free and can be downloaded from the link below.
