    I have an iPhone 6 and an Apple Watch. But when I am using either my bluetooth earbuds (Jaybird) or the iPhone is connected to my car via bluetooth, I can't get Siri to identify the song playing - whether I use the Watch to ask or just the iPhone itself. Now the response I get is that Siri can't identify songs when Bluetooth is being used.

    And I am sure that this function was there before.

    Anyone else with this issue?

    Thanks, Steve

    I think your issue is that it's trying to use the Bluetooth mic rather than the mic on the phone. I haven't gotten song identification to work with anything but that iPhone mic hardware.

    Actually, I tried it with the mic on the Bluetooth earbuds, my Apple Watch and the mic on the iPhone and it did not work with any of them.

    So you turned Bluetooth off on the iPhone and then tried to identify a song?

    Yep. No difference. On either my iPhone or iPad Mini

    That's a shame. :( unfortunately I have no more suggestions. It works for me when I'm not connected to Bluetooth. At least it has. Can't say I use the feature more than maybe once or twice a month.

    Yet Shazam and SoundHound work fine when your connected to Bluetooth, it's just Siri that doesn't work.
