    I'm sure there was a thread on this but can't seem to find it and didn't want to bump a thread that was too old.

    Now that Siri has Shazam intergration i thought i'd test it out and asked "What song is playing?"....

    I thought it was pretty cool.

    Have anyone found any others? :)

    Not really an Easter egg since it's an actual advertised feature.

    He wasn't referring to the fact that it was able to detect the song, but rather the fact that Apple's engineers had a specific, humorous response prepared for when this particular song was detected.

    …and yes, that's rather clever. Cheesy, but clever.

    Ah, yes. Siri has been doing that from early days about many different things, so certainly good to see it continuing into new features that are added. (I think just this weekend I asked Siri "What holiday is today?" and Siri responded with something like "It's Siri's birthday today. Happy birthday to me!")

    I just like to ad that I wasn't listening to that song. I was watching the Lip Sync battle on Jimmy Fallon. :p

    But yes I was referring to the way Siri presented its answer. I'm sure there are many many more :)

    Funny you had to add that, don't worry, we're not looking to take your man card from you.

    When I tried this, Siri wanted to start calling ME 'Maybe' instead of my name.

    I spoke the exact same words as in the OP's picture.

    The words are Siri's reply, OP asked what song was playing.

    The text in the picture is what Siri said, not what the OP said. The OP asked "what song is playing?" What you see in the pic is Siri's response.

    yeah! But They removed the feature in 8.0.2 where we say hey Jarvis and Siri gives all amazing answer.. Now she only says "hey (my name" or good morning .. Previously it used to give me funny answers

    When I ID EDM/Dubstep she often says, but please don't ask me to try and sing this, lol.
