I have Cortana speech assistant set up on my Windows 8.1 phone. It is a Microsoft Lumia 535.
I have many song files stored on my phone. They are ripped from my CD collection as MP3 files, and tagged with Artist, Album, Song, etc.
When I am playing the song on my phone, I want to be able to ask it, "What song is this?". I do this by holding the search button and then saying that phrase out loud.
It then shows "Listening for music...", and identifies the song by "listening" to it and searching for it on the internet.
How can I have it just tell me out loud what the song name is by using the metadata / id tags? What are some exact phrases to use?
To clarify, a data or WiFi connection should not be necessary...just for it to read the MP3 metadata and say what the song is.
It's kind of a mystery so please help me to figure the wording out. I know I've done it before but don't know how exactly!
I would like to encourage people to post some examples of voice commands that do or don't work. Here is what I have tried so far, with the results:
What song is this? - "Listening for music..." What song is playing? - "Listening for music..." What is this song? - "Listening for music..." What song plays now? - "Listening for music..." What am I listening to? - "Listening for music..."
What song is playing in my playlist? - web search. Tell me what song this is. - web search. What is the song name? - web search.
I think with enough tries we can figure out what voice commands will work. Please share your results. :)
Tell me what song is playing. - web search. Describe this song. - web search. Identify song. - web search. play list what song is this. - web search. Xbox music name song. - web search. Open playlist. - web search.
I don't think that it's possible anymore. I wish that it was though!
