SoundHound è probabilmente la migliore app per il riconoscimento di canzoni presente su Windows Phone, le sue avversarie principali sono la più popolare Shazam (che però è molto ridotta sui terminali Microsoft) e Musixmatch. Ricordiamo che, in realtà, è possibile riconoscere canzoni anche senza queste applicazioni, vi basterà infatti premere il pulsante di ricerca Bing sul vostro smartphone e poi cliccare sull’icona della nota musicale.
