According to the latest reports, Google Assistant should now be capable of recognizing a song as the user asks it the name of the melody playing around them. An official confirmation of the feature from Google has yet to arrive, but the feature seems to be up and running in the United States.
Google Assistant and Its Latest Old New Feature
Song identifiers are far from being rare, as there are a number of very famous and widely used such apps already generally available. However, some device makers started integrating this function into their smartphones themselves, one such example being Google with its Pixel 2 phone.
Until now, the built-in song identifier was strictly limited and available to Pixel 2 users. However, the options seem to now be on its way to becoming generally available.
Media and news reports point out to the introduction of a new ability for the voice-activated Assistant. Namely, some allege that, from now on, if the user hears a song that they like but don’t know its title or can’t remember it, they can simply ask Google’s Assistant.
The preferred command seems to be “What’s this song?”, but one of the numerous other possible queries in the area. However, the option will only work, at least according to some, for users that have voice as their preferred input method. Others claim that voice will have to be activated for the feature to work automatically.
Google Assistant will require an internet connection as it will offer results after doing a quick search online. Then, it will display the results as cards. Then, the users will probably be able to play the song through them, or buy it, or more.
At the moment, the inbuilt song identifier features only seems to be available in the U.S. and/or on select Pixel phones. Google has yet to confirm it and details, whether it will be generally released, have yet to emerge. However, some claim that the new option is slowly rolling out across more devices, so news on the matter will likely continue emerging.
