To identify a song using Siri, you can use the built-in Shazam integration on iOS devices. Here’s how you can do it:

On iPhone or iPad:

  1. Activate Siri:
    • Press and hold the Side or Home button (depending on your device) until you hear the Siri activation sound.
  2. Ask Siri to Identify the Song:
    • Say something like:
      • “What song is this?”
      • “Name that song.”
      • “What’s playing right now?”
  3. Wait for Siri’s Response:
    • Siri will listen to the ambient sound, identify the song using Shazam, and provide information about the track, including its title and artist.
  4. View Song Details:
    • You can tap on the result to view more details about the identified song, such as lyrics, and access options like playing the song in Apple Music.

Note:

  • Internet Connection:
    • Ensure your device has an active internet connection, as Siri uses the Shazam service to identify songs.
  • iOS Version:
    • The Shazam integration is available in later versions of iOS. If you don’t have it, consider updating your iOS to the latest version.
  • Apple Music Subscription:
    • Some features may require an Apple Music subscription. Ensure that you have an active subscription if you want to use additional functionalities.
  • Hands-Free Activation:
    • If your device supports “Hey Siri,” you can activate Siri hands-free by saying “Hey Siri” followed by your request to identify the song.

    • Click on the Siri icon in the menu bar or use the keyboard shortcut (if enabled).
  2. Ask Siri to Identify the Song:

      • “What song is this?”
      • “Name that song.”
      • “What’s playing right now?”

Identifying songs with Siri is a convenient way to discover music without manually searching. Make sure your device’s microphone is not blocked, and there’s minimal background noise for accurate song recognition.
