Facebook App to Get Music, TV Show & Movie Recognition Feature Like Shazam [Video]

Facebook has recently announced that they will be updating their mobile app with music, movie, and TV show recognition feature similar to Shazam. When turned on, it will automatically detect what’s playing while you’re writing a status update.

If the feature is turned on, you’ll see an audio icon moving on the screen beside the status update bar. If the feature finds a match, you can then choose to add the song, TV show or movie to your post.

If you share music, your friends can listen to a 30-second preview of the song from Spotify.
For TV shows, the story in News Feed will highlight the specific season and episode you’re watching, so you can avoid any spoilers and join in conversations with your friends after you’ve caught up.

Note that this upcoming feature will be available in the US only.
