Google’s Voice As­sis­tant to iden­tify songs

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - FIRST TAKE -

Google As­sis­tant has al­ways been good at fetch­ing in­for­ma­tion and now it can iden­tify songs as well. The ‘What song is this’ fea­ture was ear­lier in­tro­duced on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smart­phones, and now Google is rolling it out for more An­droid de­vices by re­leas­ing an update for Google As­sis­tant. Once the Google As­sis­tant app has been up­dated, it will be able to recog­nise songs with­out the need of any third party app. This fea­ture will work on the same lines as the pop­u­lar app Shazam – a built-in mi­cro­phone gath­ers a brief sam­ple of the me­dia play­ing and com­pares it against the cen­tral data­base for a match. When we tested this fea­ture, Google As­sis­tant was able to read the lyrics of the song play­ing in the back­ground and fetch a card with lyrics and other de­tails.
