To detect song titles I like to use the apps Shazam and Musixmatch on my Android device. I read about Shazam existing for Windows also but it seems that it was removed from the Microsoft Store. Is there an alternative way to install it or an alternative application that does the same task so I do not have to use my Android device but can use Windows?
Why looking for another app while this functionality is baked in into Cortana on Windows 10?
After launching, Cortana says “Ask me anything.” Simply ask her any one of the following questions: What song is this?, What song is playing?, What’s the name of this song?, or What’s playing right now?.
Use Cortana’s Music Shortcut
Alternatively, you can launch Cortana, then click the musical note icon in the top right (similar to tapping the musical note icon that appears in Google Now). Apart from identifying songs, this icon also saves a list of your previous musical searches.

Yes, Shazam has been discontinued, as of Feb. 7, 2017,and no longer appears in the Microsoft App Store as an available download.
However the good news is that;
Shazam will continue to work until or unless it becomes incompatible with a different version of Microsoft’s operating system.
What you can do in the meantime is downloading the application from a different server:
You can then side-load manually on the Windows device either using the App Installer tool (Available in Windows 10’s Anniversary Update)
or using powershell:
Add-AppxPackage -Path "C:\Path\to\File.Appx"
I'm working on a new project called FlairMax it's like Shazam but for Windows 10/Windows Mobile 10 and even with more features than Android version of Shazam check news on Twitter: @FlairMaxUWP https://twitter.com/FlairMaxUWP?s=09
FlairMax is a music recognition app that tell you the some information on the recognized track like: tittle, duration, genres, artist, release date, album, recognized part time (alpha, because it can mistake when the recognized part is repeated in the track), lyrics, synced lyrics (can be saved in many lyrics/subtitles formats), Deezer Link, YouTube Link, Spotify Link and Track HQ direct download link and there's another features like: show synced lyrics, Compact Overlay(PIP/AOS) mode, open track links in UWP apps/clients (MyTube, Perfect Tube, Spotify App, Deezer App, ....) if installed and many other features.
