The Windows Phone versions of the music and media discovery app Shazam got news update today that includes access to Cortana in Windows Phone 8.1 for the first time.

The brief change notes for the apps state, "You can now ask Cortana 'Shazam this' to instantly start identifying music around you. We've also improved performance and fixed a few bugs." The update applies to both the free, ad-supported, Shazam app as well as the $5.99 ad free version, Shazam Encore.

Do you like that more Windows Phone apps are adding Cortana support? Thanks to everyone who tipped us!
