Ask The Assistant “”OK Google, What’s This Song?”

Google Assistant commands are an ever-growing list. Ask The Assistant is a new series that I am starting on this blog to bring you new voice commands. So, the next time you see “Ask The Assistant” on this blog, that will be a new Google Assistant command.

Today’s new voice command is “Ok Google, What’s this song?”

The ability to recognize songs, is a long-awaited Assistant feature. The Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 phones have a feature called “Now Playing” which identifies the song in the background, even without the user asking for it.

This new Shazam like feature lets you ask Google Assistant to listen to the currently playing near your phone. Assistant will listen to it for few seconds and identify the song for you. Assistant will then show you more details about the track.

This currently available only on Pixel 2 phones. However, according to Android Police, this will come to other phones with Assistant too. Stay tuned for more updates!
