Even after Siri integration, Spotify jabs at Apple again

This week, Spotify launched an Apple TV app as well as integrating with Apple’s Siri voice assistant on iPhone, which you might think represented a rapprochement of sorts between the two companies, following their longstanding anti-competition disputes. You’d be wrong. Spotify has updated its ‘Time to Play Fair’ lobbying website’s timeline of “Apple’s behaviour” down the years, […]

Shazam financials reveal it added 78m users in 2018

Shazam reached 478 million annual active users in 2018, which is 78 million more than in the previous year. The company’s revenues fell by 23% to £31.4m last year, but it swung from a loss of £17.7m in 2017 to a profit of just under £124m in 2018.  That’s the benefit of being bought by a global tech giant like Apple, which completed its acquisition of Shazam in November 2018.
According to Shazam’s financial results for 2018, published through Companies House in the UK, the company recorded £157.7m of income from ‘the disposal of intangible benefits’ in 2018, with a note further on in the accounts specifying that £156.6m of that “relates to the proceeds from the sale of intellectual property net of the cost of disposal” with a further £1.1m relating to the value attributed to its workforce in the acquisition.
