If you love music but don't know how to play an instrument or even program music, Google's got you covered. The tech giant has recently released the Google Magenta Lo-Fi player, which helps users load up in the browser and start creating music right away. The all-new Lo-Fi player looks metro and has an 8-bit graphics with aesthetic. The users need to start making music, load up the player, and click on the various instruments they see on screen. Objects like the cat, piano, acoustic guitar, and bass will allow you to customize different tracks and melodies.

In a recent press meet, Google has stated that "We chose Lo-Fi Hip Hop because it's a popular genre with relatively simple music structure. This limited flexibility helps ensure that the music always makes sense. We're able to create something more like a music generating room" than a musical instrument or composition tool."

Google has also incorporated several music machine learning models developed by the Magenta team to help users make the experience more robust and dynamic. The firm has completely transformed the Lo-Fi Player into an interactive YouTube stream where instead of clicking different objects to make music, one can type in the commands in the Live Chat. Google has also made the source code for the player available on GitHub.
