Shazam, the popular music discovery application, is now available to Orange customers in France and the UK on a range of handsets and will help make those tiresome what-tune-is-that moments a thing of the past.

Shazam gives instant satisfaction for those times when users want to know what song is playing. By simply holding up a mobile towards the music playing you can learn more about the artist, buy the song immediately – from the Orange Music Store – or just sate your desire for music knowledge.

This knowledge will come at a price, as if you want unlimited song identification, recommendations, biographies and album reviews it'll cost you 3 of your hard-earned pounds a month. There is, however, a free version, which will identify five songs for you. Shazam will be tightly integrated with Orange Services meaning Orange customers can quickly and easily buy a tagged song on Orange Music Store with a few clicks.

Handsets manufacturers include: Sony Ericsson, LG, Samsung and Nokia.
