People could use their iPhone to identify a song.
Apple is reportedly planning to work with music discovery app Shazam to add a song identification feature to iOS 8.
The new feature is expected to allow users to identify a song and its artist through their Apple devices, just like the Shazam app, reported Bloomberg.
Apple will use Shazam’s technology that enables identification of a song being played using the device’s microphone and comparing it with a song database.
Citing unidentified sources, Bloomberg reported that the new feature will be added as part of Apple’s Siri and hence need not be downloaded separately, as Apple’s voice assistant competes with Google Now and Cortana.
The iPhone users are expected to use natural language queries such as ‘what song is playing’ to get an answer.
Meanwhile, Apple is planning to expand iTunes Radio, the music streaming service launched in 2013, to outside the US this year.
The company has seen a gradual decline in users of its iTunes store over the past year.
