(Pocket-lint) - Shazam has announced a new partnership with Deezer that'll allow Brits to instantly listen to their Shazamed tunes through Deezer.

Deezer is a music streaming service for web and mobile devices, with more than 30 million licensed tracks in its library, whereas Shazam is a mobile-based music identification service that also serves up info on music as well as relevant links to iTunes, YouTube, etc. And starting today, after identifying a song with Shazam, you can tap a Deezer icon and play that track directly via the streaming service.


Beyond the new partnership with Deezer, Shazam also announced a new redesign for its iOS app that includes a range of new features. There's better social sharing options, for instance, which includes Facebook, Twitter, Google+, WhatsApp, and Pinterest, and now you can also see lyrics to a song straight away.
