But in windows you no need to download any third party application,Now you can easily identify music with Cortana.
Cortana can help you work out which song is playing around you, then help you get that song in Xbox Music. Cortana also keeps track of the songs you’ve asked her to find for you so you can revisit the list later and decide if you really do want to add some Vivaldi or Herman’s Hermits to your collection.

After Identifying the Song
Once Cortana identifies the song, which usually takes about three to six seconds, you’ll see its name, album, and artist. You can also click the Find another song link to do that. Click any of the results to open that album in the Windows Store.
In the Windows Store, you’ll see the option to purchase the song or the entire album.
If Cortana can’t identify your song, you’ll see a message saying “I’m sorry, I don’t recognise this song”, with the option to Try again. In most cases, increasing the music volume or moving your PC closer to the source of the sound remedies the problem and gets Cortana to identify it.
Note: Cortana and Music ID are region restricted, mostly to the US and a few other locations. If you do not see the icon described in this article, then you are probably in a non-supported region.
