    Shazamers with the Windows, BB and Symbian versions

    We are currently in maintenance mode on these platforms and, therefore, will be providing limited support. We apologise for the inconvenience this causes, but please check Shazam Home for further updates

    What does this mean?

    Currently, no further development work is being done. If you update your operating system or if there are any changes to an external component such as Facebook, no fix will be available at this time.

    I little bit of a blow for Windows Phone, they don't even advertise the app being available on Windows Phone on their site, but I hear SoundHound will be releasing an update some time in the future...

    Ohh damnnn!! Just when I thought Shazam needed an update I hear that they are discontinuing support for Windows Phone. Its really bad news for me. Every time I go to the shopping malls, I turn on Shazam as they play a lot of nice songs that I haven't heard.

    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.

    Shazam sucks.It's very slow, needs much time to open,doesn't recognize popular songs....SoundHound is much better,looks nice, works much, much better.We do not need shazam at all.....

    I prefer SoundHound and find Cortana does the job well, too.

    We've had that feature since 7.5 at least. It wasn't tied to Cortana before 8.1.

    I contacted Shazam about an update and they told me development for WP was discontinued, I also contacted SoundHound who said an update will be coming to windows phone soon but couldn't give any updates of when.

    in WP8 you had to change your regin to US to get a lot of features on Bing, including music recognition.

    Good riddance. It's not a blow at all. They had gone from free to paid versions (with the first 5 or so songs free) and back with no notice. Also many times I found it couldn't identify the song but SoundHound would work fine. I've even converted some iPhone/Android people to SoundHound. Of course we also have Bing/Cortana but it doesn't offer quite as much functionality as SoundHound.

    The thing is that bing/cortana music id system didn't work everywhere

    Bing music id doesn't work on my phone.I set region, language etc. to US, but nothing,I can't see music icon.I didn't have that also when I was on WP 8.0. When i ask Cortana "what's playing now", it says network error, try again, and network is ok....

    I'm not familiar with Shazam. I found Soundhound and am very impressed with the scrolling lyrics (not always available but are more often than not). I wouldn't call it essential but it is cool to have.

    Not really. Cortana does a super job.

    I just use Cortana, and before that, Bing would do that for me.

    I haven't bothered with Shazam since I got my 920. The inbuilt function works perfectly well enough for me.

    Shazam was good for a while years ago, then they updated it back on WP7 what made it unusable without buying the full version for an unreasonable amount of money. I haven't bothered since and use SoundHound which does the job nicely.
