Siri partners with Shazam to recognize songs in iOS 8. Users running iOS 8 on their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch can now ask Siri to listen to what song is currently playing and will identify it via Shazam, and also offer users a link to buy the track from the iTunes Store.
How do I see what I asked Siri?
How to view all songs you’ve identified with Siri via the iTunes app
Launch the iTunes app on your iPhone or iPad.
Tap on the list icon in the upper right hand corner.
Tap on the Siri tab in the top navigation.
Can Siri identify classical music?
For example, if you’re listening to a tune on your iPhone, you can ask Siri: “What song is this,” and it will tell you. But in iOS 8, Siri’s musical abilities have gone a step further. Siri’s new music prowess in iOS 8 sounds a lot like an app called Shazam, which can also identify the name of a song currently playing.
What song is playing?
After summoning Google Assistant, you can ask “what song is this?” or “what song is playing?,” and the Assistant will pull up a card for you with the name of the song, the artist, lyrics, and YouTube, Google Play Music (of course), and Spotify streaming links.
