As part of what seems as the “out-Shazam Shazam” strategy, SoundHound announced free unlimited music recognition of its music search and discovery application. Until now, users of the free version of SoundHound have been limited to five music IDs per month.
As far as I’ve understood, the new unlimited free offering is for the iOS and Android platforms only and is not available for Symbian (at least the press release doesn’t mention other platforms).
Of course, the premium, ad-free version called SoundHound Infinity is still available.
Finally, SoundHound also used the opportunity to share some of its achievements in the past year:
- It has been a No. 1-ranked music application with global reach spanning 200 countries: No. 1-ranked music application on Apple’s AppStore in more than 25 geographies, best seller on Nokia’s Ovi Store, and top-ranked music application on Android Market;
- SoundHound’s mobile user base has increased by 500%, while usage has increased by 1000% with millions of hits per day.
- In a world first on mobile: Premiered a new music single by Secondhand Serenade.
You can download SoundHound from your mobile app store or from the app’s official website.
