Shazam buys out Tunezee for lyric syncing feature

Shazam, maker of the popular music identifying app, has just announced its first acquisition with the purchase of Tunezee. The Silicon Valley-based company specializes in synchronizing lyrics. As a direct result of the purchase, Shazam LyricPlay app was launched for the Encore premium Shazam users.

The app lets users instantly see synchronized lyrics of whatever song they're listening to. Shazam added animation and visualization to make the lyrics more appealing. Currently, the software is compatible with more than 25,000 of songs available on Shazam.

To use the feature, Encore users need to tag a song they like, tap a new LyricPlay icon when it appears in a Tag result and turn their mobile device horizontally. Lyrics will then scroll, jump, pop or slide as the songs is sung. Colors from the cover art of the tagged track are used for the lyrics.

The feature is free for Shazam Encore and RED apps.
