As expected, Apple has announced new Siri features for its iOS 8 mobile operating system, including the ability to analyze and identify songs automatically with recognition powered by Shazam. You can also purchase iTunes content directly from Siri, and dictate text in 22 new languages.

Also included is a feature that recently hit the iPhone through a jailbreak tweak that allows you to summon the iPhone’s assistant by saying “Hey, Siri.”

    I got the impression that it was only while plugged in. Craig gave the example of somebody using it a car, and specifically mentioned that they plugged it in to charge.

  6. The Beta version of iOS 8 don’t include the new languages for Siri, so it’s hard to tell right now…
