Music identification app SoundHound has released a new version of its Android tablet app, revamping the UI and continuing to buddy up with streaming music service Rdio for playback of songs. The new app has been released for Google’s own Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets as well as Amazon’s Kindle Fire, using the latest Android user-interface guidelines to give users “a generally improved browsing experience”. It’s the Rdio relationship that’s most interesting here: the two companies were already collaborating on a feature called ‘interactive mapping’ that helps users see what other people have been tagging in their real-world location. Rdio provides streams of the full tracks within the map. What’s interesting about this is that Rdio appears to also be a key partner for Shazam’s upcoming relaunch of its own iPad and Android tablet apps – it was the lead sponsor when we were shown the apps at Mobile World Congress – which also include… a new interactive mapping feature to show what people are tagging in real-world locations!
