Mobile music discovery company Shazam announced today a major update for its Shazam app for iPhone and iPod touch, including a new feature called “Shazam Friends”, which enables Shazamers to discover and share new music with their friends on Facebook. The new feature provides a real-time feed of songs that your friends have tagged, leading to a continuously updating list that gives every Shazamer a new dimension for music discovery.

To start using the new Friends feature, simply update the app and then a new “Friends” tab will appear. Then all you have to do is log into your Facebook account and confirm that you’d like to connect and share with friends. Here are some of the things you can do with Shazam Friends, as outlined by Shazam:

  • Browse all of your friends’ tags, listen to previews, watch music videos, read reviews, access biographies and get artist tour information
  • See all recent tags from a particular friend in one list
  • Add friends’ tags to your Shazam history and playlist
  • Purchase the track
  • Where available use streaming services to play the song from your playlist
  • Post tags to Facebook and Twitter, add comments, and give your friends a chance to listen and comment
  • Encourage friends to join you in using Shazam Friends
