How often has it been that you have been humming a particular song but try as hard as you might, you are unable to place it? It is at moments like these that apps simplify your life. There are plenty of apps for identifying music when you are listening to it, but most of us are unaware that very soon this feature will be inbuilt in Google Assistant itself. Android users will soon be able to recognize songs without the need of a third-party app like Shazam or SoundHound. All you need to is give a voice command “Ok Google, what’s this song?” and lo and behold! The answer is right there.
It is interesting to note that the song identification feature has been available to Apple users since iOS 8. According to reports, the latest ‘song recognize’ feature by Google will work after you ask the question. The search bar will show the results after a bit of research on the internet. It is to be noted that the result will be shown as cards. The icing on the cake is the Google’s announcement of the fact that it will offer services on which users will be able to play the song.
While this new feature looks promising for Android users, a lot of questions remain unanswered. Will this feature be restricted to certain countries only or will it be rolled out globally? Will it work for all genres of music? To find answers to all this and more we will have to wait and watch.
