Taiwanese music giant KKBox has partnered ACRCloud, a Beijing based automatic content recognition provider, on a Shazam-like music-searching feature on their KKBOX app.
Unlike its western counterpart however, which looks for music based on a sample from an external source, the the KKBox feature allows users to search and download a tune by “singing a song, humming a tune or putting a smartphone close to the source of music.”
Once the song has been identified, users will also be able to review the artist or album and save music to listen offline.
Established in 2004 in Taiwan, KKBox is Asia’s largest music streaming service with over 10 million users and targets the market in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore. It also has links with some of China’s biggest records companies like Gold Typhoon and East Asia Music.
