Shazam hits another milestone as it plateaus over 100 million users
Most people are probably aware of Shazam's unique service in identifying songs through the use of its apps on various platforms, but some would be surprised to find that the service debuted 10 years ago. In the time since it was launched, smartphones have delivered enthralling features that enabled Shazam to proliferate at a rapid rate over the course of the last few years.

Looking down at the cold hard facts, the service has seen a substantial amount of new users as it grew by 25 million more users in the last six months. Essentially, there are now more than 100 million users using the mobile music discovery service which is thanks to its expansion into alternate arenas like advertising and television.

Available on a variety of mobile platforms that includes Android, BlackBerry, iOS, Symbian, and Windows Phone 7, it is being furthered by its implementation of analyzing content on television and advertisements. Now that this unique milestone has been reached, it's going to be interesting to see how Shazam continues to make positive trends in the coming years.
