Verizon launches song identification service


Verizon Wireless announced V Cast Song ID, a new service enabling subscribers to identify a piece of music by capturing a 10-second sample via mobile handset and seconds later receiving title and artist information as well as corresponding download, ringtone and ringback offers. According to Verizon, the service can identify more than four million songs from across genres and decades. "At a time when some of our competitors won't even allow you to download your music over-the-air, Verizon Wireless is pushing forward by offering Song ID for free," said Verizon Wireless chief marketing officer Mike Lanman in a prepared statement. "We'll help you find the music you love, then make it easy for you to buy."
