Apple completes Shazam deal after EC inquiry

Apple has completed its takeover of UK-based music app Shazam, weeks after the deal was cleared by European regulators.
The California-based iPhone maker said the song recognition tool would now soon be offered ad-free to all users.
Apple said last December that it was to buy London-based Shazam in a deal which reportedly valued the company at $400m (€300m).But the takeover was held up by an in-depth probe by the European Commission.However the EC cleared the deal earlier this month after finding that it would not give Apple a unique advantage over rivals such as Spotify - the market leader in the streaming market.Apple announced on Monday that the deal had been completed.
