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.

Technically, Reclaimer77 is right - WP8 (or 7) did not have voice assistant, thus it could not have music recognition integrated with it.

It did, however, have music recognition baked in OS. There was no need to download additional app, and response was almost immediate because of no need to run client-side app.

I haven't tried Google Now feature, but I did prefer WP solution to Shazam on my old iPhone. Or my wife's new iPhone.
