Company Details


Shazam connects more than 400 million people in over 200 countries and 30 languages, to the music, TV shows and brands they love. Every month another ten million people embrace Shazam. All this makes us the world’s leading media engagement company. Shazam is an amazing app available on all major app stores and platforms. In fact it’s one of the most downloaded iPhone apps of all time.

While the Shazam App will continue to be the best way to discover, explore, buy, and share music, people can also now use it with television to enhance the viewing experience on the “second screen” – the mobile device. When people use Shazam with shows and ads, they can access more information and special offers on their favorite products.

Shazam brings together people and entertainment, generating more than ten million tags every day. Plus, through leading social netenrk sites like Facebook, Google+ and Twitter, it’s easy to share your Shazam discoveries with friends.

Our work with music labels, TV program producers, and broadcasters – and every major platform and carrier worldwide – has earned us industry recognition and awards. The Shazam for TV service and Shazam-enabled campaigns were honored with Social Television Award for “Best Branded Social TV”, The Queen’s Award for Enterprise and the Ad Age Vanguard Media Award for Broadcast-to-Digital/Best Social TV Mobile Engagement Innovation.

With global headquarters in London and New York, Shazam also has offices in Menlo Park, Los Angeles, Chicago and Seoul.

Shazam is backed from a number of prestigious firms including Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Institutional Venture Partners, DN Capital, and Acacia Capital Partners.

The Shazam name and symbol are trademarks of Shazam Entertainment Limited.
