Shazam gets redesigned

Boasts major evolution to content platform

Shazam has unveiled the full extent of it’s app redesign that was launched earlier this month.

Shazam CEO, Rich Riley, said the redesign was part of a fundamental evolution in the app’s consumer experience. “Shazam is evolving to become a destination experience and content platform for artists, shows and brands.”

“Shazam’s new content-rich design, coupled with the recently launched News Feed and the effortlessness of Auto Shazam, give users powerful reasons to spend a lot more time with Shazam and to use it every day.”

The company said that over the coming weeks, Shazam’s iOS and Android users will see a new Shazam result that creates a deeper, richer experience. The new look is currently rolling out to users globally, with updates randomly released.

New features of the app include: Lyric previews when a track is matched: unique recommendations, access to information about US broadcast programmes, biographies and discographies, auto Shazam and the Shazam news feed.

Shazam had also recently announced a new partnership with Warner Music (WMG) that included a joint venture label for unsigned acts and marketing collaboration. A Shazam-branded imprint will identify artists for support and development by combining WMG’s artists and repertoire (A&R) with Shazam proprietary data. Warner will also provide exclusive content for Shazam users.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
