Music search

Songs you hear on the radio, or when you're out and about, don't need to be a mystery anymore. You can search for music that's playing to find out more about it, such as the song title, artist, album, and ways to listen to or buy it.
Important:
  • Bing Music can only recognize recorded music. Music from live performances or humming can't be recognized.
  • Bing Music may not be available in some countries or regions.
