Deezer for Android updated with new Shazam-like feature

Deezer for Android updated with new Shazam-like feature
Last year, Deezer unveiled plans to add a brand new feature to its mobile app, which would allow users to identify unknown tracks in the same vein as Shazam. The music streaming service may not be so popular in the United States where it launched only two years ago, but those who use it will be able to enjoy the new song recognition feature called SongCatcher.

Deezer's SongCatcher was available in the beta version of the app since December, but as of today, everyone using the Android app will be able to take advantage of it. There are some restrictions for Freemium users who will be able to access it from the Search tab, but they will only be able to listen to their saved tracks in shuffle mode.

Besides allowing you to quickly identify unknown tracks within the Deezer app via the Search tab, SongCather also enables paid users to add them directly to their favorites and playlists. It's also possible to play all saved and favorite tracks from SongCatcher.

Keep in mind that you won't have to download any updates from the Google Play Store since this is a server-side deployment, but you should see the new SongCatcher feature appearing by the end of the day.
