[Windows Phone Tip]: Bing App to Replace Shazam For Music Search

Shazam is an awesome music app that lets you to search and identify any music on your mobile device by just listening to it. But if you’ve got a Windows Phone, you don’t need it anymore, because the Bing App has this feature built right in for you.

To search for music, simply fire up the Bing App, by tapping the search button on the phone, and tap the music symbol at the bottom of the screen.

Then put your phone close to the music source to let it listen to it. The screen will indicate if it detects any of the song rhythm.

Tada…bingo…here is the song I was just listening to.

It’s nicely done and super quick. It took only a few seconds to have the song listed right in front of me. From the result screen, you can access the store to buy the song if you want to. But I do wish there could be more information about the song on the result screen, just like what Shazam does on its app.
