Shazam (Sort Of) Hits 100M User Mark, Targets Living Room For Growth
Music recognition and discovery service Shazam has reached somewhat of a milestone today: growing its user base to 100 million, of which 25 million users were added in the past six months. At first glance that sounds pretty impressive, though not entirely surprising.
Back in May we reported that the ten-year old London-based ‘startup’ had grown its user base from 50 million to 75 million members in the previous six months, and that its service had identified more than one billion songs to date. Shazam CEO Andrew Fisher predicted at the time that the company would hit the 100 million member mark by the end of this year and today he was sort-of proved right. However, these aren’t necessarily active users just those that have tried the app. So take that as you may.
