Music identification and discovery service Shazam has announced that it’s now offering unlimited tagging with its Android app. Shazam lets you identify any song playing a radio, television, or any other real-world setting by holding your phone’s mic up to the music source.

Up until now users could identify up to 5 songs a month for free, but if you wanted to do more than that you’d have to upgrade to the Shazam Encore app which costs $4.99.

Unlimited tagging is being sponsored by eBay. But the deal is only good through January 1st, 2012. At that point Shazam free will start capping song tags at 5 per month again — unless Shazam lines up another sponsorship deal.

Shazam competitor SoundHound, meanwhile, has been offering unlimited song IDs since December. Shazam is available as a free download from the Android Market.
