Shazam integration expected with iOS 8

A report has surfaced that Apple is set to add a new song discovery feature in a future update for iOS. Sources that claim to be familiar with Apple's plans say that Shazam will power the song-discovery feature.
The microphone of an iPhone or iPad would be used to capture audio of the song and then the audio would be compared to the song database of the program.
Song discovery would be baked directly into iOS and will be available through Siri. The user being able to hit the Home button and ask what song is playing.
Another report indicates that Apple is looking at making iTunes Radio a standalone app rather than a feature inside the iTunes store. However, the source says that the final decision on that move hasn't been made.
Shazam currently has over 420 million users worldwide that use its services.

Yes, it has. At least since windows phone 7.5 it has had it integrated into the core os. You just hit the search button and then hit the listen button. Now, if you're talking about if it has had it with a digital assistant, then no, but that honestly makes no difference. And technically, you could call Microsoft tell me a type of digital assistant, just a much weaker one than siri or google now (it could take notes, text and call people, open apps, things like that, but there was no 'chit chat' or too much intelligence behind it)
