    Cortana is in beta stages right now so that feature might not be included in her right now.

    There should not even be a button. Cortana should be smart enough to know that you are not asking questions and she should hear music in the background and automatically detect it and tell you what the artist/song is.

    I have just asked "what song is this?". Cortana finds the song pretty often. And "Vision", which used to be next to the "Music" ID button, is now, a so called "lens" in camera.

    That's way slower than WP8 or 8.1

    This is how Google Now works. Ideally it would be great if Cortana brings this along too. At the same time I would like to be able to "force" the music mode too in case the audio doesn't get recognized as a song for whatever reason...

    Just a guess, but maybe it will be moved to the music app.

    Yes. This is correct.

    Microsoft should do much better, because this isn't a as good (functional) as it used to be?

    Edit: I apologize, I didn't notice the Windows 10 reference (I use the Windows Central app on WP). My phone was just upgraded from 8.0 to 8.1 so I now have Cortona on the right side button, at the bottom, but not the 8.0 Music Identification! That is what I was referring to.

    i think that if you open cortana, hit the microphone button, then at top a music note button should appear

    I eventually found that Qr-code scanner is now a "filter"/"app" in the camera. Inconvenient but at least we still have it.

    Didn't see it. Really there should be a button. I'm often in situations where I don't want to talk to my phone.

    I just say:

    "Cortana, what song is this?" and she'll instantly search, simples.

    You can also type "what song is this?" into the search box and she'll start listening, but this is even harder than before.

    In the meantime I'd recommend using a 3rd party app like Soundhound. It'll let you pin a tile to instantly trigger the identification from the start screen.

    I have a solution, don't know work for you or not, but just works for me.

    Changed to other country which don't support Cortana(here I changed to Malaysia, since I also from there), then restart your phone. Once your phone is restarted change it back to the country that you're set previously(I'm using US), and restart again then the music search should there😉

    One of the best things about windows phone (for me), is that you can read QR codes and identify music in a very simple way... just tap search everywhere you are in your phone and is ready... using soundhound or shazam, or camera filter is just... like every other OS.... ordinary, slow...

    I'm from Mxico, so I still do not have cortana and I'm happy with bing vision and music still there, also bing search :D
    And I'm not very sure if I want to move to cortana... just saying

    Did anyone find another way to identify the music yet ?

    I do not like talking to my phone, so I prefer a button just like other apps and what we had in 8.1.
