Music + Tech Round-Up May 23 2014
MUSIC AND TECH ROUND-UP
Ready for a long weekend? Yes Make sure you’re up to date on the latest Music + Tech news before you go:
Introducing: ShutterStock Music
Everything sounds better with music according to Shutterstock and we’re in complete agreement. Shutterstock have introduced a new product to their line-up, descriptively titled Shutterstock Music. The aim is to provide tracks on a simple, affordable license for content creators using the Shutterstock library of content. You can search their tracks by mood, genre or musician and add music to your project. This is a great nod to the need for music in all creative experiences and we are excited that musicians will get paid through this.
Facebook Add Audio Discovery
Facebook has added a Shazam-like audio discovery feature to its mobile apps, allowing users to easily identify which song/TV show is playing when posting an update to the popular social network.
This news comes after last month’s reports that Apple is working on integrating Shazam into iOS.
The Selfie Situation
Selfies have become such a serious social craze that polling stations for yesterday’s UK elections have put a £5,000 fine (or 6 month prison sentence) in place to stop the taking of selfies in the polling booths. This came out of fear that the secrecy of the ballot will be ruined. This is despite many politicians following the selfie trend.
