Shazam, the mobile music discovery provider, has announced that it has teamed up with O2 to make discovering and capturing music even easier for O2 customers.
The agreement will mean that anyone on O2 will benefit from an enhanced mobile music experience, discovering music with Shazam and then purchasing it through their mobile, on the move.
O2 customers simply need to dial 2580 on their mobile and hold it up to the music for a few seconds. Shazam’s service will then text the user back with the details about the track, and O2 customers will then have a link embedded in that text that will allow them to immediately purchase that track.
“This is another great example of our strategy of working with the best companies in the world to deliver compelling music services for our customers,” said Matt Ward, head of Music at O2. “We have joined forces with a leader in this space to allow our customers to have an even greater indepth music experience on their mobile.”
Jonathan Symons, EVP business development, Shazam, continued: “O2 has a strong music presence through its relationship with The O2 and O2 Academy venues. We’re delighted to work with such a leading company to create added value for our IVR service and we look forward to working even closer with O2 in the future.”
The agreement is part of O2’s ongoing commitment to music and will be supported by an online, viral and outdoor marketing campaign. The campaign will include online advertising on O2 Active, interactive marketing at the O2 Academy venues and rolling on-screen advertising at The O2.
