Shazam released several changes Wednesday (Dec. 10), with updates for its website and apps. Shazam now offers track count data, allowing users to view the number of Shazams (or “tags”) each track has gathered on shazam.com. Other updates released on Wednesday (Dec. 10) include personalized music news, real-time trending songs, and Shazam Sessions performances from artists. The Shazam app also offers a new trending chart that displays the most popular songs in the last three minutes.
Shazam also introduced the Hall of Fame, which honors songs that have earned the most user activity on Shazam.
Four songs earned Platinum level status, with 15 million Shazams each: Avicii‘s “Wake Me Up,” Robin Thicke ft. T.I. and Pharrell‘s “Blurred Lines,” Gotye‘s “Somebody That I Used To Know,” and Passenger‘s “Let Her Go.”
