    We need Cortana to carry out this task, so we're just going to press the search icon, which is the small magnifying glass at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.

    Now, it's very important to mention that Cortana only comes activated with phones inside the United States of America.
    If your phone is from outside of the United States of America, Cortana will exist on your phone, but it will not be activated. You will need to activate it by changing a few very simple settings. You can find a how-to video to do this on this website. Search for how to change or how to activate Cortana in a phone from outside of the United States. Watch that video and learn how to do it. Then come back and watch this video to learn how to do this quite interesting task. For now, imagine we're in a cafe, drinking a latte, and we can hear a song playing over the radio. We're very intrigued and excited by it, and we want to know who it's by, so we can go home and purchase it or borrow it from a friend. What we need to do is press the musical note icon at the top of the screen.

    Then Cortana is going to tell us what song is currently playing.
    What I'm going to do is play a song for you, and press the musical note. Then we'll see what happens. It will take a few seconds, so bear with me. Enjoy the song, and we will see if Cortana is up to challenge to discover what song is currently playing. I'm going to play the song now and activate the program. After I press on the musical note, Cortana will listen for the music.

    As you can see, Cortana has successfully deduced and discovered what the song is.
    It is Riptide, God Loves You When You're Dancing by Vance Joy.

    As you can see, it successfully completed the task.
    It's identified the song and the artist, and now we can find it and listen to it. If we tap on the song name, it will actually take us to an app where we can purchase the song as well. Not only does it show you the song, but it also allows you to quickly access it as well.
