Though the deal has not yet been confirmed by both Apple and Shazam, various sources report the deal is worth $400 million and will be signed next week.

So we can guess that Apple might be acquiring the startup to improve its audio streaming services.

With these plans to purchase audio searching services, Apple is definitely planning something big. The company will likely go head-on with its competitions like Spotify, Google Music, and Amazon.
