MTV launched this Thursday, 31, the application MTV Artists. The service is very reminiscent of the popular Shazam, who recognizes a song that is playing in the environment and brings information about it.
In addition to this function, the MTV app searches for the lyrics of the song in question, information about the artists and even their concert schedule, with tools to buy tickets. MTV says the intention is for the service to be a hub for meeting new bands.
The app is free, but for now it is only available in the U.S. and only for iOS. An Android version is expected to be released in mid-2014.
