Apple did what we had predicted and that is incorporate Shazam in Siri. Any song you are listening to using Shazam will now be easily recognized by Siri. This will help a lot because you no longer need those extra song recognition apps you had downloaded and installed. After you activate Siri, you will now be able to know the title of the song and the artist and Siri will only take a few seconds. After that you can download the song in iTunes, so cool.
