If you're looking for yet another song-matching app (really, a SoundHound / Shazam alternative), Rhapsody's got something you might be interested in - a new app called Songmatch.

Songmatch, thankfully, does not require a Rhapsody subscription, and is completely free. You can match songs against Rhapsody's library of 16 million tracks, get artist info, track listings, and more.

That may sound pretty basic at first glance, but it gets better if you're a Rhapsody subscriber. You can immediately launch playback of the song or the album it's on when a match is found, and Rhapsody creates a special Songmatch playlist in your account where every track you match is then saved. Now that's pretty cool.

Head to the Play Store to download it now.

    Shazam, Google Now, Songmatch and soundhound.

    Not all available to all but basically the same!

    Now if Google could get agreement for voice commands like Shazam it Songmatch TM

      Not really all the same at all though. I mean, the functionality is the same, but the algorithms and all the behind-the-scenes stuff is different. Some services are better, some worse, but it's great to have this competition.

    As a rhapsody subscriber all I have to say is a big thank you. This adds a great ton a utility and creates more of an ecosystem. Yes I know this is just like the other guys stuff (which I have used to this point) but to a somebody that has a subscription it's an amazing feature.
