    Hello,

    Has anyone figured out how to make Bing or Cortana identify music that's currently playing? Disablign Cortana by changing my region reveals the option on the regular bing screen, but no idea how to do that when Cortana is enabled.

    From Cortana's main screen, hit the music note at the top right next to the hamburger icon.

    Weird! I don't see that Icon. I only see the Hamburger icon. It must not be my Xbox account, because it works without Cortana, the regular old way :'(

    You can also ask her "what's playing now?"

    That works, thanks. How is one supposed to shout out to her to ask this, with music already playing in the background? Hope they fix these bugs.

    Very very weird! Once I asked her to identify music for me, I see the music icon now. Well.

    Hello All,

    I fixed the problem by

    1. Asking Cortana "what's playing now?"
    2. Closing Cortana while she was searching for the music
    3. Opening Cortana again - I saw the Music icon now

    I didn't see any internet connectivity errors, sorry.

    The issue itself might be fixed before actual rollout

    Sorry, since I did this, the music icon is permanently there. It did not disappear again.

    As far as I know, the Xbox music detection service doesn't depend on the region on your phone, but on the Xbox region configured on your Xbox account. Go into your Xbox account settings in your browser and change your country to the US or UK.
