      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.

    1. Mousai is a simple application that can identify songs similar to Shazam. Just click the listen button, and then wait a few seconds. It will magically return the title and artist of that song!
