      BarnMTB ACRCloud provide app developers the ability to build Shazam-like functionality into their apps and services - ACRCloud doesn't provide their own standalone music identification app itself. Shazam is a standalone app that identifies songs playing using microphone.

      Hold MusicID up to music and it'll tell you the name of the song in seconds. MusicID is the slickest way to identify any song you hear on the radio, at the movies, at the club, at the grocery store, or anywhere.
