    in WP8 you had to change your regin to US to get a lot of features on Bing, including music recognition.
    For me music recognition still wouldn't work.

    As a user of WP8 phones and ANdroid tablets I can say this is no big deal (actually no deal) at all. The program never got much support ever and I guit using it along time ago. In fact I was not aware they were still in business.

    Soundhound has been its main competitor here, and on other platforms.
    Worth noting Cortana/Bing has a similar feature, but I don't have experience with that.
    True, but the Cortana option isn't available for everybody.. Even before 8.1 some had reported that they did not have this option when hitting the search button

    Just use Bing Music if you have WP 7.5/8 or Cortana if you have 8.1. A lot faster than shazam or any other apps

    while we all are worrying and discussing about Shazam, shazam app is still available in the store. what they have done is stopped updating it. maybe they are not getting a good revenue out of it. after all, it's all about money.

    the options gave by moiz and others above such as bing music, musixmatch, cortana and others, i never knew and used. i am using shazam since very very long.
    i am gonna try other options now, still shazam is there to use.

    I've rarely used Shazam anymore after they brought the Bing music recognition stuff to my region.

    The issue with these sorts of things is app brand recognition.

    The built in support works great - I don't even have Shazam - but iOS users likely think this as a key app... until iOS builds support in, which there was a rumor they were.

    If your Cortana music id doesn't work(or can't see the icon), you must change your xbox music region to US. Set your IE preferences to desktop mode(on your phone), open Xbox music app, go to settings and then Xbox music account. There you can find something like billing info, or account settings(I can't remember right now), and change your region to US.

    Even if there are good alternatives, Shazam is a recognizable app across platforms. That they are ignoring WP is not a good thing for WP.

    Soundhound is fairly recognizable and much better

    Cortona sucks for this. It does not keep a history of songs it has recognized. Without that it is useless to me.

    A good time then to uninstall Shazam and move away. No problem whatsoever with that, especially with Cortana supporting a solid song recognition option.

    Good riddance.

    Oh yea that, but it only links to Xbox music and that sucks. I want to open them in YouTube.
    Anyway I can see these music searches on my desktop?
