Bing Audio for Windows Phone

Let’s say you’re rolling along the highway listening to the radio and a golden oldie comes on. You start singing, but, for the life of you, you can’t remember the name of the song or who sings it. Well, all you have to do is check in with Bing Audio for Windows Phone, which is rolling out in 14 new countries, and you just might get your answer.

Here’s how it works: When you hear something playing you want to identify, just tap the Search button on your phone, then tap the little music note icon shown below. The phone listens for a few moments, and then lets you know if it finds an audio match.

Bing Audio support for Windows Phone has started rolling out to 14 new countries including Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Sweden and Switzerland. The feature is already available in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom and the U.S.
