• Reports Say Apple To Partner With Shazam For Song Recognition in iOS 8



    New reports were recently released claiming that Apple is looking to incorporate song identification into its new upcoming iOS 8 operating system, maybe as a part of Siri, and working with Shazam to release the capability. The featured song identification capability will gather sounds from an iPhone or iPad microphone, send it to the cloud, and then back to users, according to Bloomberg.

    Sources say that Siri may get music ID support with users asking Siri, “What song is playing?" Apple is said to be partnering with Shazam, which has its own identification app and technology in the App Store. Shazam in March 2013 was estimated to be operating on 20% of iPhones, and has approximately 90-million users. Apple is expected to preview iOS 8 at then Worldwide Developers Conference rumored to begin on June 2nd.
