EU Approves Apple Aqusition of Shazam

The EU commission launched an anticompetitive investigation into Apple’s purchase of Shazam to decide whether it would lock out competition and unfairly elevate Apple Music.

For many years, Apple licensed usage of Shazam technology for use with Siri and their decision to purchase the company makes sense

The EU commission has now deemed that the purchase ‘would not harm competition’. Apple hasn’t said how it intends to use Shazam when the acquisition completes.
